I delight in your vulnerable self, because it is in your vulnerability that I can be drawn ever so close to you. I offer Light-filled moments for you to rest your head upon as I fill the room around you with peace. Let Me cover you in soft blankets of comfort and compassion. I share in your sorrow, yet I want you to see My Joy ahead. I still have much Goodness in store for you. Allow others to care for you in your time of sorrow. Don’t be afraid to show your sadness. I need you to demonstrate how to grieve just as much as how to have strength in faith.
Take Me to heart. Breathe Me in so you can start your day with confidence, comfort, and assurance. You can handle whatever the day ahead holds in store. Be kind to yourself today (every day, actually), and it will be easier to be kind to others. Give them your eyes and full attention, just as I am doing to you every minute and every hour. You are worth noticing. Healing is taking place while change is being affected. Focus on this healing to grow even more confident as you trust in Me.
You can make it through today. This day is BLESSED. You are My hands, My eyes, My voice of hope to people in need, so take joy in this. It can give you energy back. If any resentment lingers, push it out and be rid of it. Find reasons to laugh today. I know it’s hard with so many demands on your life, but as you attend to them, I will attend to you.
I love to see your enthusiasm! Let’s dive into this day with eyes wide-open to possibility. Allow Me to put a spring in your step as you anticipate Good things to come. Throw off morose thoughts that try to antagonize you or cause cynicism. Look for the Good in people and situations. Point out the positive, even if it makes others roll their eyes with annoyance or react defensively. While misery loves company, you will also find Godly companions who love to be around joy and want to be hopeful right alongside you.
Righteousness is a tough word to understand. When used for My purposes, it can bring about Good. When used for self-advancement, it can be destructive and hurtful. Be careful in your judgement of others, using righteousness with caution. Ask Me to filter your insight and enable you to see when I call you to use your voice with discernment for My purpose vs. the world’s standards or agendas.
All around you change is happening. Don’t be afraid of this; I plan it for Good. Stop all of your own attempts at planning or controlling and release yourself fully into My care arrangements specifically designed for you. By allowing changes to unfold with acceptance on your part, the way will be easier and more clear to see. Find peace as you practice this level of trust in Me.
I know how to comfort you when you’re anxious. Sit with Me. Get to know Me better. Learn My ways by studying the word and reflecting on its message. So many people think I am far away, hard to hear, or not listening. These are such untrue accusations. I couldn’t be more attentive to you! And I provide all the world with opportunity to hear Me. Even you. Especially you.
Difficulties and mood changes come and go in ebbs and tides. The trick to mastering them is to stop in the moment and look for Me. I want to reassure you, – guiding you to actions and acceptance so that you can experience My kind of peace. No matter what you are facing, I am present in those circumstances and helping. All will be well. You can find calmness when you stop to acknowledge our relationship and My sovereignty over your life (and the lives of those you love and worry about, too). Choose to breathe in trust.
I am your God. Have you forgotten what that means? I am Sovereign, Almighty, Maker of all things. Be careful not to think you are too busy to spend time with Me, or that I don’t want to be bothered with your requests. Nothing is too trivial for Me. Bring every little thing to Me right along with the big stuff. I notice every detail. Let Me scrutinize distractions that you are better off releasing. See My kind eyes tenderly noticing every inch of your face and all of your emotions. I see you worrying that you can’t handle it all. Don’t forget to bring it to Me. Allow Me to love and attend to you deeply today.
Your worries seem to come in ebbs and flows – ebbing out at times with a sigh of relief when concerns are released and washed away, then flowing back in with rising volume in giant, scary waves. I see your fearful eyes filling with panic when you see the flow coming toward you and start imagining its devastation. You don’t have to get so worked up, though. I will keep your head above waters, always! I will help you ride the wave. Take My hand as I keep you afloat. You are just as safe with Me in the water as you are on dry land without troubles. Trust Me in the deep end as well as in the shallows.
