You Long for Time Alone and Rest

I know your heart and its ways – how you long for time alone and rest. I see how you push yourself to accomplish many things as you interact with others daily. I have plans in store that account for your abilities as well as for your needs. Seek balance between giving of your time and finding rest. The ebb and tide of life’s demands requires that you take time to replenish. It’s important to make time to observe and gear up as well as to extend yourself. Like tidal waves that reach the shore then retreat for a while, only to roll back again later, I will give you enough energy to accomplish each task for My purposes. I will shed light on what to pursue in your heart, and will also supply rest and refreshment. Step slowly, watching for My hand in your day’s plans. Feel the Spirit’s flow of extending, reaching, and then retreating. Rest in My perpetual call to love and to rest.

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.

Aim for What is Doable

I am a reassuring God. I often see you pushing yourself, striving for that unattainable perfection and trying to be the most thoughtful, capable person who is always on top of everything. Allow Me to bless you with full acceptance of your efforts; I deem them to truly be enough. Yes, I want you to be kind, loving and thoughtful and to use your talents well, but not at the expense of beating yourself up with unrealistic expectations. My bar for you is no higher than what you can comfortably and reasonably accomplish today, – no more and no less. Aim for what is doable and leave the rest for Me to attend. Accept My fully pleased response to you, which never has to be earned. I give it freely.

Worrying About Other’s Opinions

Keep on guard today for times when you are worrying about other’s opinions of you. This is the biggest trip hazard out there, and I don’t want you to fall prey to the devious one’s taunting messages that you are somehow falling short or should be embarrassed. The opposite is My truth, for you are lovely and worthy of attention. You are Good and making a helpful impact in the world. You are My beloved! And you are Mine. You can trust that what you have to say and contribute will be meaningful, and you are right where I need you to be today. Show them the love I placed in your heart, and dazzle the world with My Light inside of you.

An Unhurried Mindset

Everything is already taken care of by Me, so you can step back and take a deep, calming breath. I know how your mind tends to race with imagining plans and details. Like a stallion at the starting gate, you wrestle with anticipation of taking off at full throttle at everything there is to do ahead of you. What if I told you there is no need to hurry, and I gently opened the gate to a pleasing meadow to amble in instead of a race track to get to the finish on? Approach this day with an unhurried mindset and see how things still get done while you are more at ease with the pace. I am here for you.

Allow Your Playful Side

I am working behind the scenes so you can lighten up a bit on yourself. Let joy bubble up from beneath the surface by allowing your playful side to peek through. Go ahead – laugh a little at yourself and your circumstances. This will help ease any strain caused by them otherwise. Remind yourself that what matters most is to live with love. Being able to shrug off minor irritations will help shift the weight to a more balanced perspective. You don’t have to live under all that pressure. After all, -this, too, shall pass.

Let Today Be Gentle

Let today be a gentle day. Walk at an easy pace, soaking in whatever you observe in your surroundings. Take note of how My Light shifts and highlights things slowly around you. Learn how to hone in your observation of things like this and find its calming effect. I want to help you reduce all unnecessary stress, and this kind of slowing will help. Breathe in trust, exhale doubt.

Let Me Soothe Away the Strain

Know that I am God. My desire isn’t to have you work yourself to the bone. I want you to treasure your spirit as I treasure you. Lay your weary head on My shoulder. Let Me soothe away the strain. I am indeed pleased with you. Work less hard in the sense of taking things one task at a time and not overwhelming yourself. Look for Me in the eyes of others who see you as kind, compassionate, and capable. They recognize your fatigue, too, so there’s no need to hide it. Close your eyes and rest on My shoulder as needed today. Let Me help comfort and rejuvenate you as you drink from My well.

Excited Observation

I call you to simplicity as a gift filled with My Peace. Find quiet contentment by taking a walk or just enjoying the birds.  Use excited observation with eyes open to My wonder. By enhancing your ability to be aware, you’ll find a vision for loveliness that allows healing. Stress will dissipate as you hone this skill of being present and fully aware in the moment.

Mountain of To-Do’s

When you look at the mountain of to-do’s, it can be overwhelming. Easy does it today. My advice to you is to take one thing at a time, picking away at the pile of tasks before you slowly and easily. As you study only one rock at a time, you may actually find it fascinating. Take one trail and aim to complete it, enjoying the sights along the way. I have a lot for you to see with clarity and focus when you receive My invitation to take each step with Me.
