Be Ready for Good Things

You can be excited about all I have in store for you. The day is coming when you will reap benefit from what you’ve sewn, with confidence restored. I provide abundant healing of old wounds. Keep using the talents I have given you. If you haven’t used them lately, ask My Spirit to help you find an avenue to do so again. Invest thought time in re-building yourself up, making way for all that is to come. Be ready for GOOD things to occur.  Allow yourself the joy of anticipation. 

Embracing the Best

It doesn’t have to be so hard. So many of the things you picture in your head or worry about never come true. Rather than always bracing for the worst, try embracing the best today. Picture things turning out well, and live into this. Know that as a loving God I desire good things for you. They are already on the way! Life with Me, daily, can bring unimaginable and far-reaching joy. 

I Know Your Storms

You are burdened by many hard things, but mostly your own torrent of thoughts. I can calm the wind hitting your boat in this hurricane of worry, but it requires great faith and trust on your part. First, ask Me to help – and I don’t mean with a frenzied, frantic cry for “Help!”  Rather, use a calm, determined request that lets Me know you trust Me to respond in your best interest. Then, step back and get out of the way while I work on bailing the water.  You don’t need to keep reaching back in to grab the bucket as if I’m not doing it effectively or quick enough. Step into this day even with water sloshing at your feet, knowing I will not let you sink. Then laugh with Me about the mess. I know your storms; they come and go. We’ve been through this before. Trust Me again. I won’t abandon ship. 

Use Your Voice

It’s important that you reveal your vulnerable self now and then. Others need to understand your hurt, and you need to give them a chance to comfort you. This is all part of My healing ways. You can trust Me; I will never leave your side. I have already collected every broken fragment. Like a protective parent, I curve My arm around your shoulders, drawing you close to Me. Use your voice today without hardening your heart, and in doing so healing can begin.  I will make you eloquent and clear. Your show of love and acceptance will have deep and lasting impact. I will keep you safe. 

Fill Their Well

Today I ask you to be a blessing to others. I have gifted you with confidence through Me and others will be drawn to share in that treasure. Teach them how to love. I will give you the words to say. I won’t ask more of you than you can give safely. Open your eyes to opportunities I lay out before you. Fill their well as I am filling yours. I pour Grace into you and you pour it into others until all the buckets are filled. All things are possible with Me. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t appear to be well-received. I only ask you to do what you can, and trust Me to handle the rest. 

Don’t Agonize Over Decisions

Walk with Me. Picture Me helping you gain perspective, calmness, and health. I pay attention to you all day; can you spare some time with Me? It is here that you will find peace. I don’t want you agonizing over every decision. Make choices, then leave the outcomes with Me without re-hashing them or mulling them over and over. This small change of habit will bring great reward with remarkable steps toward a more peaceful life. Your journey is meant to be less distracted and more open to creativity, watching life unfold before you rather than cluttering your mind with endless to-do lists and worry over choices made or things of the past. One day at a time, one step at a time, together. 

Step Into My Boat

Calming down can be as simple as taking a slow, conscious breath, breathing in My Light, and slowing down your racing thoughts. I equip You. I sustain you. You don’t suffer alone. Step into My boat. See how it is buoyant, seaworthy. Feel the bobble of gentle waves, and allow Me to paddle. Let Me be the captain of the ship. I am steering, – bringing you out into the waves or placing you back onto shore. Let Me transport you wherever you need to be at this time, in this present moment. Trust that I have the power to guide with your best interest in mind. Lay down your oars, sailor. I am guiding you home. 

Picture Me Arranging the Details

I sustain life. Those who believe in Me ‘get this’. I restore a sense of what is right and Good, bringing about justice in due time. To be sustained, you must turn to Me daily – feeding your mind with My words and releasing your problems and anxiety into My hands. I can’t guide you fully if you aren’t trusting Me enough to let Me take over the problem-solving. This is simpler than you are making it by gripping so tightly to the wheel all by yourself. Ask for My help, and mentally hand over the situations and concerns that worry or scare you. Picture Me arranging the details as you focus on whatever I place before you instead. When I am back in charge of your life, you can rest easy. 

The Trap of “It’s All Up to You”

I am with you. I wash this day clean, dissolving the troubles of yesterday and strengthening you for the tasks ahead. Know that I am your companion and you face nothing alone. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking “It’s all up to you”. When you start to trip up on this, getting stressed and/or aggravated with your ‘to-do list’, stop. Pause. Look to Me and consciously say, “It is Yours, Lord.” Allow Me to take over while you rest long enough to release the pressure into My safe and capable hands. I will guide your next step. You can find rest and peace by practicing this trust, even in the flurry of busy-ness.

Strength of Character

I seek your undivided attention fixed on My loving Presence, awaiting My gifts for you in this day. I give you daily bread, which includes sustaining you to be a positive presence to others who need Light in a dark world. Encouragement comes easily for you. Don’t be discouraged by small mishaps or other’s negativity. Show strength of character instead, offering mercy and compassion. My Spirit will guide your steps and give you the right words to say. Your job is simply to trust Me in that experience. Trust my good intentions and find great reward.
