Take your time today. Move slower, – ‘mindfully’, as some call it. Try emptying your mind of all those to-dos and just be a listener and observer in the moment. See how much this soothes frazzled nerves and replenishes your reserves for the day ahead. Take in the quiet, trusting Me with how the day will play out. You don’t have to have it all mapped out. Take it easier today, leaning into trust of My design.

Today, try being a blank page. Go without an agenda, or pre-planning everything. Watch life and experiences unfold before you without the compulsion to be in charge or take over when others aren’t stepping forward. Give yourself the time and space to absorb My gifts to you. I’ll help you fill in the blanks, but for now I just want you to be observant. Open your eyes to all I have in store, and watch the colors I fill the page with.

Be open to seeing My color I placed all around you today. Look for it. Take time to notice and appreciate it. It’s My way of reaching you to reassure you that you are loved and My help is always present and available to you. You are never alone or unworthy. Brush that anxiety away by choosing to see color and hope in its place.

Open the shades and peer outside. Take note of the stillness and calm of the morning. Like a blanket of snow, I cover the earth, – hovering over plants and grass, and blossoms awaiting their time in the spring. But I’m not just “out there”. I am inside, – in each home and each person, – including you. I’m the One peering out, giving you eyes that see and moments to capture in your mind. Let your aim today be to notice things with curiosity and delight. See how this lifts your Spirit and your mood. Be elevated by what you take in as you discover all I’ve laid out before you.

You are the “right person” in the “right place” at the “right time”. Trust Me on this. I love you and I won’t steer you wrong. Remember that My timing is not always in line with what you envision, but that doesn’t mean all is for naught. When doubt creeps in and you start to get anxious, turn back to Me for reassurance. Keep climbing those mountains. The view up ahead is going to be spectacular.

Let’s start fresh today. You’ve been feeling stagnant, listless, and distant, – I know. Not everything has to feel so mundane. Ask Me to enliven your spirit, but don’t forget to invest a little of your own skin in the game. Take charge and make a decision to get up and get going. This can be made easier once you see it is Me who calls you to “Come. Pick up your mat and walk.” I want and need you here; choose to live more fully with My help today.
Be off to a good start today, – relaxed and optimistic. Hold onto this frame of mind. You can live with a hopeful outlook because I have already deemed your life holy and beloved, with Good plans in store. Don’t let any little trip-hazards take away that hopeful view. We’re in this whole life together, so go enjoy the day with all My surprises in store beckoning you to rejoice and be glad in it.
Why do you fill your head with anxious thoughts, problems to analyze, and preparing for things that haven’t even arisen as concerns yet? You spend so much energy planning ahead for things that never happen. Try practicing being alert in the present today instead. Notice the play of light outside your window. Feel the cool air coming inside. Take in each sound: clock ticking, birds calling, dog barking, the ceiling fan. Notice the variety of colors and textures as you move your eyes to slowly scan left to right. In quiet observance of things around you, you can take your mind off the “to-do list” and see the calming effect being with Me in the present can bring. Now, thank Me for the with-God life you have readily available at your fingertips. Go in peace.
Touch the pages of My Word and recognize that they are REAL, – passed down from age to age so that you, too, may hear My voice and the voice of My Father. Holy, sacred text connecting you to heavenly realms of understanding, guidance, and consolation. Then, place your fingertips on your head and heart, recognizing that My Presence is also real within you. I am an active God, full of wonder, desire, love, compassion and forgiveness. It’s important that you stop criticizing and condemning yourself for every flaw. Allow Grace to wash your mind clear from harmful worries and any misperceptions as you take in My story and choose to walk in the holy steps I place on your path. Walk in joy, connected with Me as a tangible, forgiving, loving God.
Try your best to simply be aware of My partnership with you today. Instead of putting Me on a distant pillar as if I’m watching and waiting to catch you tripping up, work on a refreshed image of Me standing alongside you as your partner and friend. I’ll go anywhere with you, you know. I’ll also share in the load of work to be done. You can even enjoy My Presence and companionship, finding things that make us laugh together or noticing things that bring awe into our view. Let’s hang out today, enjoying life no matter what the day brings.
