Likeable

Oh, My worried and anxious one. Can’t you see that you are EXTRAORDINARY? You are gracious, encouraging, welcoming, compassionate, smart, and LIKEABLE. Ohhh, so likeable! You are just what others need around them. Leap in to this day. I will overwhelm you with My good plans. Don’t be like Jeremiah, doubting your capabilities. I need your strong Spirit shining through. You won’t have to do it all – just be present to others and be an encourager, pointing out what is going right. Help lead to new paths with enthusiasm. The fatigue and stress of the past does not have to be your truth today. My way is Light. My way is Hope. My way is TRUTH. 

Be Gentle on Yourself

Your pain – physical and/or emotional- is from stress. Take one thing at a time, and go back to being gentle on yourself. I chose this path for you, and I will absolutely give you enough strength to handle it. You have endured many trials before, and there is great Joy ahead. I know you are a hard worker and can handle much, but you are way too hard on yourself. I give you My Spirit to go with you, always, so look to Me for guidance. Take breaks. Listen. I will support you. Be content with the fact that you are doing all you can, and know that is enough for Me. I will take care of the rest of the details. Take time out to experience comfort. Your pain will recede as you become more gentle with yourself. 

Just Go

It is time for you to just go. Go where I am leading you today, keeping focus on your gifts and all you have to offer others. Don’t stay back, reluctant or unsure of yourself. You don’t have to hesitate or stay stuck in indecisiveness. Place yourself with confidence at My altar, and see that I have prepared you well for where you are needed to be today. Be excited about this! Allow yourself to feel positive without worrying about everybody else’s reaction. Place them and the situation in My hands; let Me take care of the outcomes. 

Change of Heart

I will grant you a change of heart. Sometimes when you choose to live My ways of love, it feels like there is an unbearable price to pay; but the end result is always worth it. I want you to know I have heard you, and your life is in My capable hands already. I am working in your life, and in the life of those you love, as well. You will find loving them to be easier. Take comfort in that. I need you to continue leaning into Me. You are not strong enough to do this on your own. I will carry your burden. I will refresh you. I can help form a change of heart to the one who needs it. I have known what you needed even before you named it. I hold you tenderly, gingerly, — like a small and frail bird. I will not fail you. My love never fails, remember?
