I See Your Pain

I see your pain. I hear your fearful and occasionally agitated voice, and I recognize your wish for peace and love. Remind yourself that I long for you all the day long. Our connection is not “magical”, – it is REAL. My tender heart is yours. My strength is there for you. Seek My kingdom first in your decision-making, and discover that I am there with you all the way through even when life feels painful. Imagine my loving, supportive arms around you in these moments. Hear My tender voice speaking at times through others, too. Utilize thankfulness as a tool to draw closer to Me. 

Leap with Complete Faith

I call you to BIG THINGS. Don’t be overwhelmed! Every day leads you on clearer paths to the work you’ve been destined by Me to do. When I open doors, it’s because you are ready. My timing is perfect, so walk or leap with complete faith and trust. There’s no need to feel tentative or hesitant. By trusting Me with all that is in store, you can boldly move forward. The anxious ways of your former mind can melt away in My trusted hands of healing and hope. 

Untwist the Anxious Knots

Go into this day knowing you are well-equipped for whatever tasks you have lined up to do. I give you the tools you need: reasoning, wisdom, words to speak, energy. When anxiety begins to bundle you in knots, turn to Me to help untwist them. I know what is important and necessary as well as what can be discarded, but you do not always know or see these things as clearly. When you find yourself overwhelmed or wrestling, think to turn to Me for help. Pause, and allow the Great I Am to breathe calm into you, giving you the direction you need one piece at a time. 

All is Well

I have messages for you daily. Try this one on for size: “All is well”. Can you live with that? Will you trust Me completely with all the details of your life, envisioning that I can help you rise above your circumstances to a point of wellness? Hear Me pleading with you to turn and face Me, over and over again, that I might soothe your aching head and heart. I weep with you in your sorrows; I laugh with you in times of joy. I yearn to be included in your deepest thought time, reassuring you that all is, indeed, well, despite any outward appearances that have led you to believe otherwise. You must work on trusting Me and handing over your worries because I have Good plans in store. Plans for your well-being, wellness, and welfare, – not for dismay, anxiety, unrest, rage, or fear. Remember that I cherish you like no other can. 

Lower the Expectation Bar

You are designed to be at peace. The world calls people to convoluted lifestyles with mixed up priorities, frenzied to-do lists, and misguided agendas. Yes, I have things for you to do, – but My way is created to not overburden you beyond what you can handle. Come to me if you are weary and feeling overwhelmed. Find a quiet place to speak with Me, then hand your worries into My tender care. As you take time to listen, – really listen!, – to Me, you will find that I am less hard on you than you are on yourself. Lower the level of your expectation bar to accommodate realistic goals today. 

Determine What’s Important

I am a gentle God. Do not mistake My gentleness for lacking in power, because I still am the Great I Am who can accomplish all things. I may be calling you to sort out your priorities, releasing things that aren’t worth your time in My eyes as I help you determine what’s important. In a quiet space, hear My forgiveness. Let go of hurt. I can help you find the peace you so desire. In the quiet you will find renewal, clarity, and strength to do what is right and good. 

When Others Fall Short

Do as I ask of you – LOVE. Love fully and completely, without judgement and with compassion and forgiveness even when others fall short of your expectations. This is no small task for your human heart, but I will equip you. I know it sounds hard, but I will help. Turn to Me with petty annoyances. Release them into My care and respond to others with love regardless of whether or not it is “earned”. Find Grace in this action today: love as you are loved. 

Looking Out for You

You are beginning to hear My voice and trust My truth in your life. You can recognize that no matter what, you are loved and I am looking out for you. Even if it feels like you are going unnoticed or being left alone to deal with a mountain of worries, this simply isn’t true. I am here. I can carry the weight on your shoulders today: entrust Me with both the plans and the outcomes. Watch as I work things out and your fears trickle away downstream. My mighty river of strength surges all around and through you, equipping you to handle all that you encounter. Know and trust my love for you with attention to every detail of your life. 

No Need for Self-Consciousness

There are so many things I want you to check out with Me today. Picture me excitedly saying, “C’mon over here!”, waving you in to each place you enter. I’m so happy when you follow Me in. Enjoy when I introduce you to new people or things, showing you off and letting you get to know other great people to interact with. Go in with confidence, enthusiasm, and joyful wonder. Life with Me does not have to be a drudgery, or something to be afraid of all the time. You are welcome here; We both are. There is no longer a need for self-consciousness when you realize I led you here for My reasons and My purposes. Be glad and rejoice in it! 

I Hear Your Struggle

I hear your struggle. Whisper My name and breathe in My calming Presence. Squeeze My hand tightly  and be assured that I hear you; I wish to bring you comfort. Stand firm upon My rock. As you face that blustering wind, know that you don’t have to fear or doubt your strength because I am IMMEDIATELY with you. Keep your eyes on Me and don’t let go of My hand.
