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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I’m a tender God. I’ve been with you your whole life! Look back and notice the times when things worked out, when good people came through for you, and when you felt truly loved and cared for. I lovingly pick up the broken pieces caused by hurt, stress, and worry. When darkness fights for control in your head, misguidedly convincing you that everything is falling apart or that you aren’t lovable, recognize it as a lie. Come to Me and feel My consoling Presence affirming your worth and the established plan for Goodness ahead. My love for you rises above all else.
I am able to help you take better care of yourself. You don’t have to live in constant overdrive, numbing out with food or cluttered activity. I offer Grace to wash over all your troubles and concerns. Once your mind is eased with My assistance, it frees you to make better choices on what fills your body, mind, and schedule. Come to Me. Relax your jaw and hand over all that clenches you. Breathe in My Light and reassurance that I will make the way for today clear to you. You can rely fully on Me.
Turn to Me, oh anxious one. Be not afraid. In the Light of My compassionate Presence, you can accomplish all things, be healed, and be strengthened for good works. I see what you are facing in the day ahead. You are ready for the tasks at hand. Don’t trip yourself up thinking it’s all up to you. Walk one step behind Me, allowing My lead to guide. Our love will rule as the better way.
