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.

Your Busy Head

You are bright and beautiful. Your busy head spins with bright thoughts and dark ones intermingled, and hardly a quiet moment. Today, if you notice the cogs on that wheel working double-time, try shutting off the power and allow yourself to be still. Yes, – be still, and know that I am God. I love you just as you are. There’s no need to prove yourself through performance. Be still, and be reassured that all is well for everything beyond your control. I am working to relieve you and protect you from harm. I am trustworthy. Take heart in the stillness as you refocus and are revived.

Plans That No One Can Shake

Be still, My child. I am here now and I will be with you then, too. I have plans for you that no one can shake. Your life and your work are of importance to Me and bring value to many who suffer. You are tending to My hurting sheep when you do your work, and I value that. It won’t be stopped. You can sit back and trust Me on this.

Find Balance and Direction

Listen to the truths surfacing in your heart. I am calling you to pay attention to true self-care, which involves finding balance between activity and stillness. Already you are seeing the  benefits of this quiet time spent with Me. Simplify your life. Take time to reflect on what is most important to you vs. how you are spending your time. I speak to you on a gut-level like that. Honoring Me doesn’t mean overextending yourself, nor does it mean giving up what you enjoy. I designed you with likes and dislikes for a reason and a purpose. Ask Me to help you find balance and direction as you follow what gives you passion. That is My gift to you.

Smooth Away the Tension

The world is full of busy-ness. I call you to a place of calm and stillness so you can sense how near I am. While things around you clamor for your attention, I sit and wait patiently for you to turn your gaze to Me. Seek My compassionate and reassuring eyes, waiting to receive you with total love. Allow Me to smooth away the wrinkles and tension of the world, helping you to stop feeling so bad about yourself all the time. Let’s wash those things away, taking responsibility for whatever interactions need to happen to repair hurts, seek forgiveness, or release your self-blame. Breathe deeply, knowing I make all things new. Turn to Me and become repaired, whole, and freed.

Be Still and Small

Be still and small today. It’s okay to not be “big” and grown-up all the time. Dependence on Me is a good thing! Today, try seeing life through the eyes of a child – open with wonder and amazement at all things around you. Anticipate joy. Picture good things about to happen as you spend your day with Me. You have no idea what I have in store for you; let Me surprise you! Throw cynicism out the door and be open to new things.

With You In The Waiting

Truly, I am yours and you are Mine. I am with you in the waiting and stillness, where it seems silent and uninspiring right now. Take this time of quiet to rest comfortably, getting reacquainted with your inner soul again. You are still destined for big things. I’ll use this time of reflection to prepare you for bigger plans ahead. As you long to be inspired and passionate about your purpose again, I am with you. Use this down time to breathe and practice trusting Me, envisioning that I need you for grand plans. Enjoy the mystery of it all, anticipating excitement and enthusiasm to return to your Spirit because I have Good things in store!

Falling Into Place

Why are you so stirred up? Instead of picturing things “falling apart”, set the stage in your mind as if everything is “falling into place”. That’s how I work. Ultimately, things DO work out. I know it’s hard to see that in the middle of the storms and chaos of life. Be still for a moment, though, and recognize that I am God and I am at work. Take the pressure off by performing only for Me and My outcomes. My standards might be different than your expectations. It’s okay to lighten up and let things go, even if it’s not in the direction you thought it would go. All things will work out in the end. Relax into that concept today and see how your anxiety dissipates.

Slowing

I am aiming you toward a slower pace. When you have less activity going on you can be more observant. My Love arrives not because of your performance or accomplishments. Rather, it arrives by Grace in moments of time glimpsed here and there. You’ll miss its impact when you are too busy or frantic to take notice. Be grateful for less mobility right now. Come, hang out with Me in the stillness, observing what begins to stand out and make sense to you. My gifts will arrive most clearly in your slowing.
