You don’t need to feel guilty or undeserving when I lavish good things on you. Receive. Enjoy. Appreciate. Take nothing for granted. My will for you includes kindnesses bestowed upon you to nurture your Spirit. Life doesn’t always have to be hard. Greet this day looking forward to what I have in store for you, and let your heart be light as you anticipate great things!
Practice the art of peaceful smiling. Just pause, look around, and put forth a grateful grin toward all you see in the moment, knowing that you and I are meeting right here, right now. Like our own little secret, you can take pleasure in this connection. Trust that I am here, bestowing Goodness upon you. I am working everything out for your future so you don’t have to worry or think about that right now. Just smile and say, “You’ve got this, God, – and I’ve got you, so all is well”. Thank Me as I smile upon you, as well.
I place My holy hand upon you in this day. You are called, chosen, and ready because you are My child. Don’t be intimidated by anything I ask of you – in this day or the next. I wouldn’t call you to anything that I won’t equally equip you for. Don’t get preoccupied with tomorrow. Pull in the reigns of your mind for the tasks of this day only. The more you practice this skill, the better your capacity to trust Me will be refined. See that what I am providing is plenty, and be thankful.
I know the pressure you feel. I see the good intentions of your heart. I know you even better than you know yourself. I’ve been trying to teach you an important lesson: the combination of thankfulness and trust. In each moment you have the opportunity to thank Me for something and to trust Me with everything. Pausing in your busy day to acknowledge Me with thankful trust will bring you satisfaction, comfort, and peace. Try it now. Ease your needless anxiety, coming to Me with an appreciative heart so that I can refresh your perspective.
