Trust Me in Little Increments

Picture Me standing right in front of you, – eye to eye. I want to stop you in your tracks until you firmly see Me looking with all-knowing eyes. Don’t try to dart away from My gaze. I am worried about you because I see and hear your distress. O, My lamb, – if only I could show you all the Goodness ahead, – but I cannot. A vision of that magnitude of change would overwhelm you if it came all at once. You must trust Me in little increments of time. Let today unfold in tiny moments without worry over what has passed or what is yet to come. Let Me spare you the details as you take My hand in child-like trust.

I’ve Got Your Back

Accept any difficulties and know that they are merely temporary, like water dripping off your back and evaporating under My radiance. All trials are smaller than the power of My love. When doubts make you weary or anxious, just lean into Me and trust My confident lead. Know that nothing and no one can take you away from Me. I’ve got your back! 

Unanswered Questions

Stop trying to make sense out of every piece of your life. It’s alright to sit with unanswered questions, trusting that answers are for another day. My Peace I give freely to you. Sit quietly with Me; it’s Me you are thirsty for. I give reassurance to calm your nerves. Let Me engulf you in Light as you take in My whisper: “peace be with you”. Be confident even in the unknown, –  knowing you are a good person designed and loved by Me. 

I Calm the Waters

Like a bubbling brook splashing in every direction, you are hurried and flustered. Stop. Absorb My Presence. See how I calm the waters in an instant. I Am Almighty God. I AM, -not you, – although My hand is indeed at work within you. Practice just being in My Presence. This will take a great act of trust, but you are capable of trusting that I am working for your good. My love abounds and I desire for you to be at peace, resting in My reassurance instead of racing about in frenzy. 

I’m Addressing Your Disappointment

Remain with Me, even in hard times. I offer comfort and solace. Watch for My plans unfolding in new directions. I speak to you daily, hourly – stop and listen for My reassuring words. Slow down (and weep if you must). I have already taken note of your sorrow and I’m addressing your disappointment. You must continue to trust Me and to turn to Me. Trust that My will aims at Goodness for you, not continual disappointment.  

Worried About Time

You are worried too much about time. Being busy can tear you up and pull you away from time spent with Me. Don’t you recall that I promise to give you enough time, strength, and resources in 24-hour increments? Allow trust in My divine plan to take over your thoughts, dismissing worry and driving doubt away. I am not a God who drives you too hard. See My love for you, woven into this day with enough time for everything that is needed. Live in this truth, and find peace. 

Give Your Shoulders a Break

There is no need for all this distress. Your tendency to hyper-plan and fret only serves to block My Light. I already have the way planned out for you, My child. Don’t waste your energy on needless and excessive worrying. Instead, ask for Grace to wash over you with resulting reassurance. I am a Good and merciful Lord. Let Me bear the burdens and give your shoulders a break. Come to Me and I will ease your pain. No concern goes unnoticed by Me. Breathe, and allow My Light and peace to soothe you. Let Me help carry the load. 

Stay Close

I give you this day with all of its concerns and unknowns. I see your anxious eyes. You don’t have to be so afraid; I am a trustworthy God. Consider yourself a trusting toddler taking My hand as I lead you safely to places you’ve never been. I know where we are going. I am the one taking you there! Stay close by My side when you feel afraid. My protective arm is ever-ready to shield and comfort you. You are never alone.
