Picture the Best-Case Scenario

Sometimes you are uneasy inside, even without a reason. That general sense of anxiety and worry merely stems from old habits. In the past, you had to feel prepared for many unknowns on high alert because the people you were with or experiences you were in felt unsafe. I am and have always been your rock of safety and your shelter from the storm. Even now, I pull you out of anxious places and show you people and places with healthy support. Look to Me as you develop new habits of calm and ease. You needn’t worry about things that most likely will never happen. Picture the best-case scenario today and watch as I help make it unfold.

Lost in a Sea of Needless Worry

When you are lost in a sea of needless worry, come into My arms. Be comforted and reassured. My love is real, My plans are good, and you needn’t be so afraid and worked up. Don’t be fooled by the misguided belief that things are “all up to you” to do, fix, or accomplish. Rest in My arms of reassurance until your fragile spirit is completely recovered. Remain close to My side with each step you take and lean in as needed for support. Things will work out; you can trust Me.

Leadership

Remember Who is in charge. You are so prone to taking on more responsibility than is really yours to carry. Try stepping back more today and allow others to lead in their own style. Consider that I may be the One behind their decisions, actions, and choices, – even if their leadership style is different than your expectations. Your presence is still needed, but try taking  a supportive role of others rather than stepping in to take charge all the time. Let the chips fall where they may as you find peace by trusting My true leadership in every situation you encounter.

Don’t Give In to Shyness

Stay true to yourself, the way I designed you. Open up without fearing vulnerability, because that is what draws others closer to you. I have Good plans in store to bring people into your life in meaningful and supportive ways. You don’t have to give in to shyness. Connect, reach out, and find that good people are there for you, whom I sent for your well-being. I work like that, caring for you in marvelous ways.

When Others Let You Down

When others let you down or don’t give efforts to share the load the way you’d like, turn to Me. Ask for My help with shrugging off the offense. Consider that I will be your partner in getting things done, even if others aren’t helping the way you’d prefer. I can make any load more bearable. I may even introduce a new helper to involve. Release your anger and criticism, and open yourself to My change in plans. I love you and will always be there for you, reliably helping even when others disappoint.

What You Are Saying To Yourself

Daily I call you to re-examine what you are saying to yourself. When old tapes creep up and replay harmful or hurtful words of shame, turn immediately to Me for reassurance. I will help you defy those messages. I will even help erase and replace them. How beloved and great I think you are. It’s actually part of My will for you to see yourself as Good, talented, capable, loving and worthy of attention. Set boundaries against those who make you feel otherwise. I will send faithful companions your way as you make room in your life for a better support system. These companions will provide a 2-way street of healthy interactions. Ask for My help; seek and ye shall find.

Just Show Up

I know you are tired, groggy, and unmotivated at times like this. I’m still here, though, – hanging out and waiting for you to look My way for support and strength. I can comfort you and give you drive. Rest in Me, finding your energy supply filling from My reservoir. Then, just show up. Things will unfold accordingly and you will both have and be enough to take on whatever comes your way

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.
