Try Being Playful

Try being playful today! Don’t worry so much about how you look or how you come across to others. Just enjoy life in a more carefree way. My Spirit likes it when you dance and laugh. I created you with an ability to have some fun. It’s not “silly” or embarrassing. Being lighthearted is essential for renewal. See how this choice helps you manage your anxiety better. Let down your guard and play!

Questioning Your Purpose & Value

I know you sometimes question your purpose and value. It’s there, though – woven inside your heart by My Spirit, which is living in you. It might be even harder for you to see in yourself, but others recognize and are comforted by you. Today, try trusting that what you contribute is enough. You don’t have to demonstrate exceptional things in order to be valued. What if I told you just sitting there, being present to Me, is enough? Follow My lead on this today, practicing being comfortable in your own skin without “works”. Be My tangible light in the world, brightening the experience of others you encounter. Take joy in this simple kind of loving attentiveness.

Let Me Replenish Your Energy

You are bone-tired; I can see that. I also see your willing Spirit calling you to move on, one step at a time. I am with you, shouldering your burdens and assisting with the journey when it feels too tough or exhausting. Close your eyes and rest with Me for a moment. Let Me replenish your energy and refresh your perspective. Learn to trust My constant Companionship and My design for your life. Practice knowing that each day is designed with certain interactions and outcomes beyond your mortal vision. If your aim is to complete My work, you will find peace and satisfaction in knowing and trusting that all is well, and ‘enough’ is truly enough.

Heal Hurtful Self-Talk

Lay those burdens aside. Come to Me in all your fragility, presenting those agonizing thoughts and experiences you keep re-hashing over and over again in your head. Allow Me to warm you from your core, like hands hovering near an open fire. Let the warmth of My reassuring love heal that hurtful self-talk, turning those lies to ashes. You are loved, purely and simply, just as you are. The past mistakes are already forgiven. There’s no benefit to clinging to them anymore.  Let the flame of My healing Spirit take over, renewing you for Good. It’s time to let that past go.

Today Has Surprises Of It’s Own

I see you dragging your feet into this day. I know not every day feels “joyful”, especially during this holiday season during a pandemic. Let Me help you rise to the occasion. Think of Me standing before you, beckoning you with a smile into My glorious conservatory. There is life, color, growth, sounds, and refreshment all right inside. My plans for you are teeming with tropical life! Don’t look so forlorn. Today has surprises of its own built in when you have eyes that recognize and capture special moments. Let your Spirit be lifted in hopeful anticipation. Look for and notice color in life today!

Melt Away Old Habits

Like the flickering light of a candle, My Spirit is moving in you. I instill warmth and activity that is constantly at work, melting the effects of past hardships away. I give off Light with a pleasing aroma while dancing freely. Open yourself to what I need to melt down: old habits of worry, former offenses and hurts, rigid ways you’ve used to self-protect. Let Me soften them and burn away anything that gets in the way of My Light trying to shine through you. Come closer to the flame, excited about how I am reshaping you from the inside out.

Trusting & Believing In Your Goodness

Oftentimes, you hide deep self-criticism, disappointment, and inaccurate accusations against yourself in your thoughts. Your sincere desire to encourage, connect with, and uplift others should also be applied to your self-talk. Your passionate heart for equity and inclusion is super evident and others are drawn to you by it. That is the truth…not all the other anxious messages which try to erode your Light. Letting Me lead the way, use your time of interaction to be the Light I’ve designed and set in you, and don’t forget to enjoy it bouncing back as My Spirit dances from person to person. 

Feeling Bad About Yourself

I see you feeling bad about yourself. I’m sorry that you struggle like this, and I compassionately hear every word of self-talk. When your spirit has been damaged or dejected, it’s easy to feel down. Try recognizing that this same spirit in you is part of Me, – resilient, kind, capable, and beautiful. That Spirit is bigger than any hurt. You can overcome any trial with Me as part of you. Be brave enough to love yourself even when misleading thoughts try to tell  you otherwise. You, My Child, are lovely through and through. You are wonderful just as you are. Repeat that until it seeps into every corner and takes hold.

Be Resilient and Confident

I see your tentative nature as the day begins. I recognize the insecurities and self-doubt behind it. These are not accurate, though. I designed you elaborately and intricately. Past experiences and regret need not dominate your Spirit. Watch how I make all things new, including the day ahead. You can be resilient and confident with the competency to handle whatever faces you and I together today. The key here is holding tight to the truth: I am in and near you, both within you and others you’ll meet. Greet this day with holy anticipation that Goodness will surmount any challenges in this divine meeting of Spirit to Spirit.

Lift Your Spirit

I love you even when you’re crabby or discouraged. That being said, let’s shake the dust off those tired feet and get moving. I’ll lift your spirit. I have a way of brightening your outlook when you start to recognize the anxiety-ridden or self-pitying pitfall you’re in. Decide to at least try trusting Me to help shift your focus. Telling yourself phrases like “this, too, shall pass”, “maybe it’s not that bad”, or “things are looking up” helps. Choose a new mantra and work on a positive pep-talk to yourself knowing I’m at work in your life and I can be trusted to make change happen.
