I take care of your every need. Every bite of food, each reassuring glance, every ounce of hope instilled is all part of My handiwork. In fact, when you think of it, all worry is truly senseless. Try this for a day: pay attention to all that I provide – adequate food, clothing, a home, transportation, an able body, a bright mind. You will have everything you need to be exactly where you are supposed to be. I’ll help you show up and I’ll even help you finish the work. You are never alone.
I have so much in store for you! My yoke is meant to be easy, – easier than you are making it right now. Let Me carry the heaviest part while you simply walk beside Me. I know how your concerns weigh you down. Look to Me with pleading eyes and find how much Mercy, Love, and Grace I’ve been pouring on you all along. This will help you rest more assured that a time of peace is coming. Trust that I will help work it all out.
You will get your “drive” back. Sometimes I call you to slow down, and even to stop. I don’t mean for you to entirely back out of life and all of its commitments. Balance is the key and pausing to spend time with Me daily is the fuel you need. Fill up on My reassurance and love for you. Take in gallons of encouragement. My ways are gentle and kind, and I want you to treat yourself well with the same intention. Put the brakes on when anxiety and self-hatred try to take the driver’s seat. Order them to get out of the car; they don’t belong there. Let Me take over, steering you in the right direction. My ride is meant to be safe and slow, giving you ample time to take in the scenery.
“Timing is everything”. My timing is mystical. I’m not random with My purpose, though. Sometimes I nudge you boldly into action, and other times I hold you back from change until I know you are ready. The events in your life may also be created for the benefit of OTHERS, not necessarily your own. Take joy in trusting My divine crafting of your life events. Try not to disdain your circumstances. I know what I am doing, and there will be benefit for you in due time.
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.
Aim to be well within your soul and peace will follow you. Come and explore a future with Me. Find adventure, consolation, – a world brimming with spectacular beauty. Be inspired through trusting in My Good plans for you. Start your day conversing with Me and end it thanking Me. This is a new day dawning. Wake Up! Remember that the Great I AM is with you, moment by moment.
Take it slow today – with deliberate focus on one task, one conversation, one thing at a time. If you are having trouble prioritizing, write it all down and ask Me to look over the list with you. I’ll help you get started and it will flow much easier when you remember this is not all up to you. Sit with Me in quiet awareness of My Presence. Allow My grace to refocus, replenish, and refresh you. Entrust Me with your whole life and your whole list. I am yours, and you are Mine.
I will be with and for you, even when others are not. I call you to a place of peace, regardless of other’s support or lack thereof. Stop trying to figure out how to make them improve or “get it”. Hand that part over to Me, for I am the ultimate “fixer”. You can be more comfortable in your own shoes, drawing confidence from My Love so firmly imbedded within you. Nothing -no person or circumstance – needs to shake that inner peace. I will help overcome ALL of your woundedness. Let Me be the One who mends.
I will restore you and keep you. I will protect and be with you. You don’t have to be self-conscious. Everywhere you go today is where I am. There is no room you enter that I am not already present in. Picture My Presence right next to and even within you, not distantly across the room. I am that close! With Me in you, you can hear My voice enter your thoughts. Today I whisper, “You can do it!” Have confidence in Me and My plan, trusting that all is unfolding exactly as it should.
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.
