With You In All Of It

You know the sting of pain and hurt. You’ve seen deep disappointment and frustration, especially lately. I am with you in all of it, but that can sound like a hollow phrase. Listen to it again, picturing Me right in front of you and speaking these words with the truest compassion and most sincere commitment possible on My Glorious face: “I am with you in ALL of it!” Not just in bits and pieces or here and there. I was with you back then, I’m with you now, and I”ll be with you when the next thing comes along. Look to Me for help and comfort. I am already there, offering My hand for your peace of mind. 

The Speed of Activity

You’ve got plenty going on right now. Whether it’s slowing down or ramping up, let Me be the one who leads the pace. You’ve heard “timing is everything”, and “God-speed”. Let these phrases boost you with enough energy or patience to do what’s needed  just for today. Really try staying in the present, trusting My timing and the speed of activity required of you. You don’t have to be intimidated when things are moving fast, nor do you have to feel agonized when life moves too slow for your taste. This is the perfect time to breathe in trust and exhale confidence in Me. Together with Me, it will all be just right.

Not Everyone is Equipped to Respond

You don’t have to bare your soul to everyone around you all the time. Not everyone is equipped to respond in healing ways to you, but I am. I know you and what you’ve been through. I’ve seen the hard things and been at your side when you’ve suffered. Allow Me to soothe your worried mind. Bring Me your present concerns and insecurities. I will be your safe place when you need comforting as well as your lifeboat in the storm. I will lift you up on solid footing again and fill you with the confidence you need to get by. 

Shrug Off the Negative Self-Talk

My face really does shine upon you. Stop doubting that. If only you could see how much you truly radiate! Perhaps then you could ease up on the self-reproach. Your view of yourself gets so distorted. Small past errors or unhealthy choices get blown way out of proportion. With My help, learn to shrug off the negative self-talk. If you need to make amends, do so now and get it over with. There’s no need to live weighed down by exaggerated thoughts or past mistakes. Let’s move on, My beloved, basking in Light.

I’m With You All The Way

I know you are feeling daunted by the things I am asking of you. Whether it’s staying put and making the best of your present circumstances or moving forward and asking you to be open to change, I AM WITH YOU ALL THE WAY! I won’t drop the ball or make you figure things out blindly on your own. Look for ways I am working things out: random offers to help you, pinches of funding to make ends meet. Be Persistent. Things will work out in due time and in the end, even if they seem impossible right now. Look back for evidence of this, and be reminded of my Goodness coming through. I’ll put the pieces together with and for you. 

Let Me Be Your Comforter

I see the tears that sting your eyes in private. It’s okay to cry in front of Me. It would be unreasonable to expect your life to be devoid of hurt or sorrow because real pain happens. When tears stem from grief or worry, let Me help with that. I will sit with you as long as you need until your breathing slows and your guard lets down. Let Me be your protector, comforter, and guide. You’ll never have to face anything alone. Lean into My loving Presence and know with confidence that I’ll help get you through.

Releasing Temporary Discomforts

The world measures by temporal things: comforts, wants, and concerns, – things that fade or do not sustain you. Find contentment right where you are, with no more and no less than you need. Practice releasing temporary discomforts, thoughts, or worries and needs into My capable hands, right in this moment. Sit quietly, absorbing My Presence as the most real want and solid satisfaction. I supply all things in due time. This day matters and your wishes matter to Me. My purpose for you, when we are in harmony, is doable and satisfying. Be fulfilled and content, working in sync with Me today and trusting that I hear your heart’s desires. I know what is best for you. Even as you mourn and groan, know that I stand by your side, fully attentive to you. All things in due time, My love. I am here.

Release the Pressure of What-Ifs

As you stop long enough to truly listen for Me, My Grace sweeps in like the rush of fresh air when you crack open a window. The heat of tension and stress escapes out a little at the same time. I aim to soothe you as much as to guide you. I call you to peace. Find balance by slowing your pace and accepting today as it is. Release the pressure of “what-ifs” and “how to’s”, aiming to be present in the moment and trusting My work in your life. Take one thing at a time and crack that window open as often as you can remember to breathe. I am with you and there for you.

Slights and Offenses

You are more loved than you may realize. The tiniest slights and offenses that happen in daily life can skew your recognition of how likable you are. Don’t let these tiny, false claims get to you. Any thought that you are somehow unworthy of attention is a lie. I am the One who knows you and loves you. Ultimately, this is all that matters- but I know how you long to be close to others and not excluded or misjudged. For now, let Me in to soothe the hurt and provide reassurance. Confidence will return as you trust Me with your relationships. Ask Me to help remove any defensiveness from you so that others can draw closer. It’s OK to be vulnerable now and then.

When People Are Draining You

You know how to show love, but other’s don’t always get it. I see you working hard to maintain connections in relationships that are bruised. Sometimes it’s okay to pull back temporarily and stay out of situations when people are draining you. Come to Me for replenishment. I will calm your frazzled nerves and soothe your aching heart. I will show you the way to love again. With My help and Grace you will be able to rise above past offenses and be forgiving and accepting of others even when they “don’t get it”. I do. I see your Good intentions and will bless your path because of it.
