A Sip of Contentment and Reassurance

You strive so hard. That busy head has a hard time shutting off or slowing down. Constant planning and busy-ness can be signs of how uncomfortable you are in the waiting and with silence, but you need not be so afraid. I’m inviting you to enter this new year differently. Come, sit often with Me at the well and experience My waters of grace and fulfillment. Take a sip of contentment and reassurance. I have you in the palm of My hands at all times. Sit in silence regularly with Me, truly handing each day over and practicing the art of trusting faith. Soon, you will find yourself actually longing for silence because you’ll understand how much our time together like this helps. Even if you only have a moment, seek My peace-filled Presence in silent communion with Me.

Give Me Your Lists

There are many distractions tugging at you for your time and attention. Practice slowing and choosing one thing at a time to focus on. I can help you organize what to prioritize. Give Me all of your lists and the weight of your worry. I am here, always trying to make it more manageable for you. Problems arise when you look at the mounds and forget I am here, steadily taking care of the stacks, one by one. Look to Me for guidance and lean on Me for security. Peace is available when you remember I am in your midst and will never allow things to be too much to handle. Trust Me: we can get through anything together.

In Doable Increments

You can try to look beyond the horizon, but you won’t be able to see it. That’s because I don’t intend for you to worry about future things. The field and the forests right in front of you are plenty to take in for now. Picture Me clearing a path through the density of all this activity going on in your life. See how it unfolds, just a little bit at a time. You don’t have to cover more ground than what is right in front of you. Things can wait. Trust that I have it all laid out in doable increments, then concentrate on just taking one step at a time. There is no need to run down this path, either. Take your time, and it will all be covered eventually as you stay on track with Me.

When Life Feels Hectic

Pushing the pause button to spend time with Me is the very best thing you can do when life feels worrisome or hectic. Truly, stop everything and talk to Me. Listen for My loving, reassuring voice reminding you, “I’ve got this”. Everything is not all up to you alone. I am here, and I have your destiny capably in My hands. Breathe a sigh of gratitude and relief, knowing you can trust Me and rely on Me for help.

Slow and Steady

Even on days when you are energized, still try to do just one thing at a time. Multi-tasking may trip you up, lending itself to frenetic behavior and added, undue anxiety. Slow and steady. Use that energy to focus on listening and pausing for clarity from Me. Let Me guide your steps today.

Practice Allowing Yourself to Be Happy

I have paved a new path ahead for you. Every day that you practice releasing anxiety and slowing your pace, life becomes more manageable. Trusting in Me like this is a freeing thing. Now, the next step is to practice allowing yourself to be happy and content. It’s been a lifetime of stress and obligations which led you into false beliefs and unnecessary habits of constant pressure, worry, and unhappiness. I can unravel those tendencies, teaching you a life of ease instead as you trust in My healing hand outstretched to support you. Believe in My Goodness and picture happy things in store, then watch them unfold into reality.

Quiet the Chatter Inside Your Head

You can live calmly and grounded. It takes conscious effort, though, to push aside distractions and quiet the chatter inside your head. So much of what spins in there is just imagined scenarios that never come into fruition. Ground yourself in the here and now. Stop, take a breath, and look around you – observing color or sounds in this present moment. Appreciate the gift of time slowing down when you hone in on My Presence with you right here, right now. Be at ease as you trust in My Goodness. I am looking out for you, always.

Give Yourself Time to Think Things Through

Be slower to move in response to things today. Give yourself time to think things through and filter them from My perspective. I will help determine what needs a response now verses what can wait until later, helping to make things flow more effectively. The aim is to not be overwhelmed and to be less stressed by whatever comes at you. I will lead you on the path of ease and calm.

A More Leisurely Route

Pace yourself. One thing at a time; one foot in front of the other. Instead of being like a boulder perched at the top  of a steep hill that gets pushed over the edge only to roll faster and faster as you gain momentum toward the bottom, pick a more leisurely route. It may take longer to get to the destination, but the slower pace will allow you to take in and impact so much more along the way. Don’t berate yourself for moving slower than you are accustomed to doing. Recognize that I join you on this journey, and My timing is perfect. What can stand against this plan if I am with you?

I Make All Things Manageable

You are tired. I see your fatigue. Allow Me to slow the pace today. I can renew your energy simply by not overwhelming you. Take it easier – just one thing at a time. There is so much benefit to slowing this way. You can be intentional about not taking on more than what is needed. Let others step up to the plate, and relax as you hand off some of that responsibility. Don’t forget that I am yours for the day, too, so hand some of it off to Me, as well. I will lighten your load and make all things manageable.
