Smoothing the Fears and Tension

Let Me help you quiet yourself, as completely as you can. Do not invest your thought time in needless worries. Come to Me. Be still before Me and know that I am God. Recognize Who you are sitting with! I am the Almighty Creator of all things! All-powerful, all-loving, capable of greatness. But I do not Lord this OVER you. Rather, I call you into My loving arms, wanting to embrace you fully and tenderly, smoothing the fears and tension you experience and sorting out the difficulties you face. The good news here is that I am at work in your life. Seek to trust Me with all things. Prepare yourself to step in the direction I point you for your life’s purpose. I love when you sit with Me like this, quietly resting in My Presence and readying yourself for the plan. Thank you for giving yourself to Me during this time.

Quiet Your Mind

It’s okay to be still. Tell yourself, “All is well. No rushing or worries are needed.” Soak in the view around you as you quiet your mind enough to hear Me. I gift you with a life of ease in these moments. Glimpse the Goodness and behold My love for you in the calm of right here, right now. A slowed pace and quieting of the mind allows you to experience life as being manageable. Things will get done. You don’t have to live so frantically pushing agendas and to-do lists all the time. Just relax and stay awhile with Me, and I assure you the rest will fall into place.

That Central Place of Knowing

Somewhere deep inside, you already know that I am with you and for you. You recognize that you are loved for exactly who you are in that central place of knowing. The world and its challenges make awareness of that deep truth murky and blurred. I call out to you, “Be still…I am here, waiting.”  Find Me here, and recognize once again that I’ve been with you all along. You are never alone or forsaken. Whatever is going on, we can handle it together. Let My love originating from that central place refresh and enliven you once again.

Take Breaks From Thinking Too Much

Be wary of things that fill your mind with needless worry. Instead, take intentional breaks from thinking too much. Get up, soak in the views I place in your presence. Notice the beauty, the stillness, and color or sounds. Focus on whatever seems to catch your eye, and acknowledge My companionship in whatever you experience. Remind yourself that you are Mine. In momentary breaks like this I will bless you with the peace of mind you crave.

Give Room to Pause

Walk with Me at My pace. Let things slow down a bit and give room to pause now and then. Take a break from noise, electronics, and social media. Look outdoors. Breathe in the stillness and calm. You are so hard-wired to be doing things all the time, but I tell you it’s OK and good to NOT “do” for a while. You are learning the beauty and importance of mastering this skill. Just be and soak it all in with amazement and wonder. Notice the calming effect this has on you and your perspective. Grace-filled moments are all around, so be replenished as life and next steps unfold.

Listen to the Stillness

It is so important, yet rare, that you take the time for quieting. Listen to the stillness of this moment. Absorb it, opening your mind to this simplicity, – then you can hear My great voice. Today, be freed just to listen with no expectations placed on you. I call you to truly rest and bask in the quiet. You don’t have to always be productive in order to be loved by Me. Practice the art of meditation today. Be still and know that I am God. Know Me. Know I Am. Just be still.

Down Time

Today, pay attention to the gift of “down time”. I generously carve out pockets of time with fewer demands so that you can refocus and rejuvenate. It’s important to let go of the constant pressure to perform. I call you away from this anxious lifestyle to find better balance. Allow yourself to just “be”. Soak in what you see, hear, or taste in the moment. Stay with Me a while in this palace of peace and mindfulness. Observe how calming this is, and how much better you function when you take time out to be still, – even if just for a few moments each day.

Releasing Disappointment and Anger

It is better to acknowledge your disappointment and anger, thereby allowing it to be loosened and released quickly. Holding those feelings in or trying to deny them is never healthy. You know that you don’t need to remain under the grip of fleeting feelings like that, because I am a trustworthy God who is ever-present in times of trouble and beyond. Lean into Me when the driving force of emotional winds are strong. I will keep you upright and level-headed, leading you to the stillness outside of its path.

Called to Be Still

I call you to be still so that you can know Me better. When you are still, you can focus better and find the peace I offer you continually. In the stillness, I can attend to you differently, – providing reassurance that I am with you right here and right now, that you are enough, and that you’ll have what it takes to get through the day. Come, sit by Me and absorb the calming effect of My loving Presence. Stay here awhile, basking in the quiet peace and pool of Grace I have for you.

Sit Still

It’s a gift to truly sit still, absorbing sights and sounds in the present moment. You can allow memories to surface, or thoughts and imagined scenarios for future events to rise and be acknowledged, but try to return to awareness of the present. Now, picture Me sitting with you, – noticing the same things that catch your attention. Smile at our connectedness that occurs without words. I am oh-so-familiar with your every thought and reaction. Tenderly, turn your gaze to Me, sensing My all-consuming love for you. Push busy-ness aside and see what joy I can stir up for you as you spend time with Me like this. Let Me re-energize you by restoring balance and rest in your life.
