My Measuring Stick is Different

There is time enough for everything – even self-care. The last thing I intend is for you to feel discouraged or defeated. Carve out alone time and quiet time today to meet with Me for restoration. Let Me remind you of your likeability and how much you are loved and valued, even if others don’t express appreciation for all that you do. You are living for Me, and My measuring stick is different than the world’s is. Find your purpose and meaning by trusting Me and how I use your life for Good things. You are needed and loved by Me, and that is what matters the most.

Release the Pressure to Fix It

I know your innate truth and worth. Deep inside you are the epitome of compassion. It’s because you care so deeply about others that you also get so worked up at times. Let’s work on channeling this passion for helping others with their wellbeing into more constructive focus. You don’t have to be working harder than them. Work on recognizing when you are doing so, trying to control or channel other’s decision-making. Release those who are simply unable or not ready to make better choices on their own. I know how disappointing this is for you to watch, and how you agonize over others poor life management, but hand your disappointment and your wishes for them over to Me. Trust Me to work on it while you take a break to recuperate. You can trust My loving oversight of all things, releasing the pressure to fix it yourself.

On Days When You Feel Fragile

Focus on gentleness toward yourself on days like this when your spirit feels fragile and vulnerable. My ways toward you are kind, and I am moved with compassion for you. Gently draw in, carving out quiet time with Me for renewal. It’s okay to set boundaries and spent time with Me in this special retreat. It is here that I can help reorganize your thoughts and priorities, strengthening you again from within.

Hungry for Wellness

You are hungry for wellness. In order to be made well, it is important that you recognize you’re already well-made by Me. Find this holy wholeness at your core, in spiritual realms of Goodness woven into every fiber of your being. I mean that! Instead of focusing on what is broken, out of shape, or “imperfect”, tap into seeing the truth of My perfect design. I love you exactly as you are. Find that place inside your soul that knows this to be true, and reintroduce yourself. Commit to taking care of yourself while also being kind to yourself at all costs. This is where true wellness comes into fruition.

When You Are Worn Out

When you are worn out, sad, or fearful, I see it all. Today is a new day, though. I ask you to attend to self-care first before helping others. When you feel unsafe, fragile, or broken, I am here; at work in you and in your life. Your Goodness touches others in ways you don’t even realize. Instead of focusing on what you haven’t gotten done, replenish your spirit by knowing My renewing Grace is free. I am here to help you be self-forgiving and clean out those messy thoughts trying to put yourself down. Find rest and comfort with Me as we rebuild your strength and self-esteem.

Healthy Choices

I can help you take good care of yourself, – even better than you have already been doing on your own. I desire to support healthy habits. What do you need My help with today? Better nutrition?

I’ll help make these things happen for you with healthy choices becoming easier as you rely upon My assistance. Be bold with the ask and I can help you make real progress toward your wellbeing.

Glorious Things I Intend You to Experience

I have made you well for a reason. There are glorious things I intend for you to see and experience in this life. Ready yourself for the travels ahead. Simplify and let go of things bogging you down – clutter, belongings, unnecessary obligations. Be selective in how you invest your time and money, frugally choosing to spend without extravagance right now. Watch for signs of the Good Plan in store, and be ready to take off when it is time.

Love is the Next Best Thing

Just love. My message to you today is as simple as that. Some use the phrase “do the next best thing”. I can assure you that if your motivation is to show love, it will definitely be the next best thing you can do. It’s important to toss some healthy self-love in the mix, too. Your whole life doesn’t have to be about serving others to the point of depleting yourself. Do what is needed to fill your bucket first, then go out refreshed and ready to live and love well.

No Need to Over-Indulge

Taste. Breathe. These sensations can bring simple pleasures that I designed and crafted unique to each person. Some smells and tastes bring aversion; others, fond memories and delight. Take note of the smell and taste as your food is being prepared today or consumed to sustain life. Let Me ask you: are you eating to live, or living to eat? It is important to care for your body respectfully and not neglect it. I am a God who provides pleasure, comfort, and healing through food. There’s no need to over-indulge. I bring sustenance and Goodness, and there is room at my table for all to take, eat, and have their fill.

Perhaps it is Time to Take a Rest

My glory is sometimes a mystery which I unfold in tiny glimpses along the way because it is too brilliant to behold all at once. Train yourself to step forward in patient trust, day by day. I will not give you too much to handle without equipping you. Your life should not involve more than you can bear; I don’t work that way. If you are feeling overburdened, perhaps it is simply time to take a rest. Self-care is just as essential as tending to others. Do not neglect the care of your vessel.
