Untie the Knots

Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to quiet that busy, fretful head of yours. Try this tactic: tell yourself repeatedly “Nothing matters as much as I think it does.” The only thing that truly matters is using critical thinking to determine “What is the best way to be loving in this scenario?” If you see another person tangled in distress and can recognize the ropes that threaten to trip them up, help untie those knots by encouraging them to trust in Me.  If you find yourself wrapped in a tangled rope of worry over something I didn’t place in your path for you to address, step aside and let Me handle it instead. I will give you strength and insight to know how to handle each situation you encounter.

Recognizing Your Limitations

You do not know everything. It’s important that you begin to recognize this fact, and  lift some of those ridiculously harsh self-expectations off your shoulders. I am accompanying you daily, and I reveal all you need to know in a given moment. Recognizing your limitations and humbly admitting them is actually an asset. The less self-reliant you become, the more you can depend on Me and find My peace. You worry far too much about what others will think of you. When you try to be all-knowing, this actually pushes others farther away. Learn to embrace your shortcomings so that I can draw you closer to Me and to others.

I Make All Things Manageable

You are tired. I see your fatigue. Allow Me to slow the pace today. I can renew your energy simply by not overwhelming you. Take it easier – just one thing at a time. There is so much benefit to slowing this way. You can be intentional about not taking on more than what is needed. Let others step up to the plate, and relax as you hand off some of that responsibility. Don’t forget that I am yours for the day, too, so hand some of it off to Me, as well. I will lighten your load and make all things manageable.

Lean Into My Sturdy Frame When You’re Weak

You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

Perhaps it is Time to Take a Rest

My glory is sometimes a mystery which I unfold in tiny glimpses along the way because it is too brilliant to behold all at once. Train yourself to step forward in patient trust, day by day. I will not give you too much to handle without equipping you. Your life should not involve more than you can bear; I don’t work that way. If you are feeling overburdened, perhaps it is simply time to take a rest. Self-care is just as essential as tending to others. Do not neglect the care of your vessel.

Endurance and Expansiveness

I have called you by name. It is My job to take care of the others that you are worried about, not all yours. Remember that My plans are for your welfare, not dismay. For now, endurance and expansiveness are words for you to concentrate on. You have been gifted with strength and stamina, which will help when it comes time to move forward. Expand your view and open yourself to possibility. When courage and bravery are needed to take steps in a new direction, you will know. Don’t forget that I love you, and I don’t want or expect everything to be so hard for you all the time. Joy will return. There is time enough for everything, though, so just concentrate on appreciating the day before you.

All the Love and Motivation You Need

I don’t like seeing you depleted and fatigued. Let Me rejuvenate you from a source deep within. Carving out alone time with Me is essential, adding fuel to your tank so you can move calmly about your day and into your future. Thank you for spending time with Me and allowing Me to fill you with all the love and motivation you need. You don’t have to calculate how much energy you think you have to expend; I will supply all you need and then some. Watch and see with eager anticipation. There is more than enough in store for you!

Driven with Excessive Responsibility

I call you to attend to certain tasks today, but this is never meant to be heard as a hard task-master. I call out with cries of love for you! How much I desire for you to first and foremost hear My bid for your loving gaze in return. You are so hard on yourself, – so driven with excessive responsibility for many things. As you learn to rely on me, your Maker and the great artist designing your life, you begin to comprehend how My capacity is greater than your needs. Turn to Me and find me Present at all times, and lean on Me to discover the strength and sustenance you need to complete all that is on your plate. Come away with My peace and joy ignited in your spirit.

Be Strengthened to Manage

Take care of yourself, including tending to your need for food, exercise, and rest. Build in time for conversations with Me daily as part of that self-care, too, because I want to build up your spiritual self, as well. I cannot implement the big plans I have in store for you until you can be strengthened to manage all that will be involved. There are many demands on your time. Gently I call you to be reminded that My well does not run dry. You can dip your ladle in these life-giving waters of Grace as many times as is needed to quench your parched body. As you extend yourself and thirst for more water, I will replenish and recharge your body and spirit. You will be ready for a multitude of tasks requiring your energy and concentration if you come to the well frequently.

Unscramble Your Brain

Let Me help unscramble your brain. It is twisted into knots of distractions and worries. I can help unravel your cares, one at a time. Let’s ponder each one slowly and gently, releasing the rest for Me to attend to with you when it is time. Hold them up to the Light, examining them in My Presence. I will instruct you and show you the way to go.  I am a God who truly cares about every little detail of your life. No small thing goes unnoticed. You’ll be able to bear your burdens knowing that I am fully with you.
