With You Always

Ultimately, I am the One with you. Yes, Me- the Great I AM! The fact that I am your God is no small truth. Why allow yourself to be so anxious when the opportunity to grasp the enormity of My Presence is with you always? I’m not just hanging out occasionally. Call upon Me, then listen. I will guide you. Watch for Me every day and thank Me for the circumstances I have already changed for you. Don’t listen to the false one trying to lure you back to places of distrust, anxiety, or despair. You never have to be afraid because I will help you handle anything that comes your way. I am a God who saves, and I love you dearly.

Pull Back the Covers of Worry

You are more eager than you may realize. I know your habits of worrying, but I also see  this wall of fretting about everything. Beyond that wall is My eager, playful, enthusiastic child – the one who wants to experience, explore, and find awe. Anxiety tries to invade and take over, pulling a shroud of dread over the start to your day. Push off that cover intentionally. Look for My face of reassurance and encouragement. We have things to do, places to go, people to see, – TOGETHER. Ask Me for help to pull back the covers of worry so that you can start your day with delight. I am a trustworthy God, and I designed you for eagerness, not dismay. 

Comfort

You can find comfort in Me. Let Me help stop the racing thoughts of details to finalize, or of worries about what impression you made. I will teach you to encourage yourself. Turn inward for a change. Take comfort and strength deep within as provided by Me to help you find the truth: I am your God and I am right here! I am in charge, leading you to a very important place. You have what it takes, and I will always equip you, remaining housed within your Spirit. Be comforted, comforting, and comfortable as you rest in the folds of My cloth. 

My Instrument

Taking one day, one hour, one project at a time will help you keep calm. I have the design, and you are My instrument. I will play you, beautifully, in accordance with My rhythm. You can rest easily knowing I am in charge, not you.  You don’t have to take things personally. Calm yourself through being one with Me, weaving in and around others spreading Joy and sensitivity. Make real connections. Know you are Good, and exactly where I need you to be. My design is at work, intricately, piece by piece.  I do this because I love you! ALL of you: your needs as well as your talents.  Take My Right Hand; – I will not let you fall.  

Power to Change

Quiet your busy thoughts. You are needed right where you are with the freedom to serve and be attentive like nothing else can.  Prepare to move mountains and fill valleys. Know – with confidence! – that you are Mine. As you place your life, talents, and capability in My hands, I am forming something great. This power instilled in you, used for My Good, is your gift of energy right now: the power to change, the ability to influence. Use your creativity and what you are passionate about to have meaningful impact. Remember that I instilled within you ways to make things new, fun, well, and full of Goodness…because I love YOU and because I love THEM. 

It Doesn’t All Rest On You

You have said yes to all I have asked. I am so pleased with your heart and your good intentions. I am laying everything out for you: the people to connect to and interact with, the vision for how things can be. Continue to answer My call with willingness. Remember, though, it doesn’t all rest on you. Others will see your desire to serve, and they will want to jump on board.  Look to the East, from where your help will come. I am the Shepherd, in charge of the flock, so you can stop fretting. I will provide all you need. 

Be Ready…

Look to Me to find rest and direction. The joy is already in you, ready to spring forth. You’ve been bringing joy to others, but I think you’ve forgotten that. I am so pleased with you, and eager for the days and weeks ahead where you will celebrate a new beginning: doing things you love, with I in you and you in Me. Be ready to shine, eager to serve, and excited to meet and interact with people. Listen for My message, and take My lead when the way that’s been paved for you opens up. You will be nurtured and blessed simply by your willingness to be a part of things. Remember that I am in charge, and you need not be anxious. 

Possible

My Light is absolutely dazzling all around you. No matter how dark the world may seem, or how monumental or oppressive the tasks before you may feel or appear, My ways are able to overcome all challenges. Like fresh, new-fallen snow lit by winter sunlight outside, it is almost too bright and blinding for you to take in fully. You can get a glimpse of it, though! Be amazed by My brilliant love and power in your life. Absorb this word: POSSIBLE. All things are possible with Me. Let My Light remind you that you are not alone, and you are able to bear much when we work together in harmony. I am bigger than any challenge or obstacle you face. Turn your face to the Light, and absorb My strength intended to help you today. 

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.
