Find Balance and Direction

Listen to the truths surfacing in your heart. I am calling you to pay attention to true self-care, which involves finding balance between activity and stillness. Already you are seeing the  benefits of this quiet time spent with Me. Simplify your life. Take time to reflect on what is most important to you vs. how you are spending your time. I speak to you on a gut-level like that. Honoring Me doesn’t mean overextending yourself, nor does it mean giving up what you enjoy. I designed you with likes and dislikes for a reason and a purpose. Ask Me to help you find balance and direction as you follow what gives you passion. That is My gift to you.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

Stop Using Guilt & Worry As Motivators

My love for you is not dispensed only by your good works or positive intentions. My love is totally free and ever-available. This is hard to wrap your head around because you are always trying so hard to “do what’s right” and be “good/kind/considerate enough”. Let Me tell you again that you are already “good enough” for Me and I love you completely as you are. Think about how knowing and trusting the truth of these words may change how you act and think today. Stop using guilt and worry as your motivators. Simply be compelled to be lovingly accepting of yourself and others, relaxing into this God-fueled mindset. As you learn to show compassion for yourself this will ease your distress.

Anxiety Eats Up Energy

Days like this, -when you are aware of and trusting in Me – are glorious and a true blessing. I can do many things with, for, and through you when you are in a calmer state like this. Anxiety unnecessarily eats up energy and obstructs concentration. The opposite is resting in trust, confident that I am with and for you and “all is well”. Let that be today’s truth and cornerstone for you.

Regardless of What Others Think

Regardless of what others think or say about you, I know the truth. You are loved and treasured; holy and sacred in My sight. Run to Me when you are scared and start to doubt this inherent truth. Bring your anxiety before Me so I can help soothe your fears and realign your outlook. Look for My perspective of Goodness and follow after it. You can still be at peace even when your relationships are broken. 

When Inspiration Is Hard To Come By

Some days seem more bleak, mundane, or overwhelming than others. On those days when inspiration is hard to come by, still make time to sit quietly with Me. As you hone in on My Presence, a flicker of Light will come on inside. Something deeper will be awakened, giving a sense or purpose that cannot be seen or named. I work in and around you every single day. I call you to My Mission. Trust in the truth that I need you in this day, and proceed with openness and receptivity to whatever I bring before you. I am with you, always.

Destined for Purposeful Use

All living things have the capacity for Me to work in and through them. Knowing this truth, how can you view your interactions with others differently today? Will you show more interest? Would you be more eager to listen than to expound your own opinions? Will you step into leadership roles, bravely trusting that I’ve equipped you? Go now in peace and enthusiasm to hear and be with Me. Walk with humble confidence, trusting that My Light is in you. You are destined for purposeful use in a world that is hungry for Me. 

What I Put On Your Heart

Stay true to what I put on your heart and what resonates on a gut-level. It is here that I speak to you in mysterious ways. The nudge to call someone that comes out of the blue. The urge to truly listen and focus on strangers or acquaintances who talk to you, not giving in to distraction or allowing impatience or boredom to pull you away. Everyone deserves to be heard, – even you. I assure you, I am listening. I may be urging you to speak up, too. Listen to your heart and sense the part that is My voice calling out. You can trust the way I speak to you and sense the direction you are to take. 

Dealing With Pain

You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.

Lean On The Sturdy Base

I have told you this before, but it bears repeating: lean on Me. When you are weak, confused, worried, or angry, – lean on the sturdiness of My cross that bears all things. Wrap your arms and your mind tightly around its base when the winds of adversity blow at gale-force. I am steady, sturdy, and strong.  Nothing can bend or break Me or you as we work together, in bonded union against the hard stuff of life. When you are holding on to this solid truth, knowing I am with and for you and I will never abandon you, you will be protected from the blustery forces trying to tell you otherwise.
