Change Your Approach to Today

Let this day burst forth like a giant sunrise that makes you stop in your tracks. You can’t help but be wowed in My glory in moments like that. Try viewing your day from that vantage point: taking notice of the marvelous things instead of being blocked by a dreary view of all that tries to make you feel agitated or unhappy. Call upon My Spirit to help you change your approach to this day and the activities I have in store for you. Ask for help to see things as light, manageable, and doable. Put on garments of compassion and tenderness. Laugh out loud at least once today and watch your joy spill out onto others.

You Matter

Ponder this in your heart: you matter! You are already forgiven for anything you’ve done wrong in this world, so release the grip that past has on your life. All is well now, and you are free to meet Me here. I send My Holy Spirit to stay with you, so you have a personal guide for how to make daily choices. Talk to Me. Ask My Spirit to help when you feel anxious or troubled. And don’t forget – I am with you FOREVER. You are freed, unshackled, and safe. Whenever you strike yourself down, you wound Me alongside you because we are that intertwined. Use the Power of My Love to build yourself up and others. Your chains are gone and you’ve been set free by My amazing Grace.

How You Invest Your Thought Time

It is important to fill your head with messages that edify, not destroy. Be cautious with how you invest your thought time. There is so much out there in social media and on screen that feeds dark thoughts with distressing images that are hard to let go of. Pick something else to read or watch today; something that will brighten your mood or help you grow in compassion and insight to others. This is a kindness you can do for yourself and something that will have My hand in it. Think on things that are pure and lovely today, and see how this lifts your spirit.

Be Strengthened to Manage

Take care of yourself, including tending to your need for food, exercise, and rest. Build in time for conversations with Me daily as part of that self-care, too, because I want to build up your spiritual self, as well. I cannot implement the big plans I have in store for you until you can be strengthened to manage all that will be involved. There are many demands on your time. Gently I call you to be reminded that My well does not run dry. You can dip your ladle in these life-giving waters of Grace as many times as is needed to quench your parched body. As you extend yourself and thirst for more water, I will replenish and recharge your body and spirit. You will be ready for a multitude of tasks requiring your energy and concentration if you come to the well frequently.

Get Back On Track

It’s time to get  back on track. You’ve been down, blocked, and unmotivated for a long while from the weight of the world’s perils. I long to renew and refresh your Spirit. Turn to Me and ask for help with an open heart so that I may get in and do My handiwork. I designed you to be a person of HOPE and LIGHT, – one that beams and is not muted or dull. Your surroundings have been heavy for months, but I call you to a new dawn and a new day. Life with Me can be excitingly new and fresh. Your true self is meant to be an inspirational encourager. Come with Me, eager for this new day and revived outlook.

You Long for Time Alone and Rest

I know your heart and its ways – how you long for time alone and rest. I see how you push yourself to accomplish many things as you interact with others daily. I have plans in store that account for your abilities as well as for your needs. Seek balance between giving of your time and finding rest. The ebb and tide of life’s demands requires that you take time to replenish. It’s important to make time to observe and gear up as well as to extend yourself. Like tidal waves that reach the shore then retreat for a while, only to roll back again later, I will give you enough energy to accomplish each task for My purposes. I will shed light on what to pursue in your heart, and will also supply rest and refreshment. Step slowly, watching for My hand in your day’s plans. Feel the Spirit’s flow of extending, reaching, and then retreating. Rest in My perpetual call to love and to rest.

Your Longing for Confidence

I know your longing for confidence and a sense of inner ease. I also see the frail moments where, in your head, you are susceptible to crumbling to pieces. It’s okay that this happens now and then. Be kind and forgiving to yourself when it does, showing gentle compassion and healthy self-care. I will mend every single piece of that brokenness. No crumb goes unnoticed by Me. Picture Me gazing lovingly at you as I reassuringly pick up piece after piece. I will wipe every tear away and breathe restoration into your deflated spirit. You are resilient and will come through it all well. Make this truth your focus to get you by today.

Notice Things

Open the shades and peer outside. Take note of the stillness and calm of the morning. Like a blanket of snow, I cover the earth, – hovering over plants and grass, and blossoms awaiting their time in the spring. But I’m not just “out there”. I am inside, – in each home and each person, – including you. I’m the One peering out, giving you eyes that see and moments to capture in your mind. Let your aim today be to notice things with curiosity and delight. See how this lifts your Spirit and your mood. Be elevated by what you take in as you discover all I’ve laid out before you.

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.
