Picture Me standing right in front of you, – eye to eye. I want to stop you in your tracks until you firmly see Me looking with all-knowing eyes. Don’t try to dart away from My gaze. I am worried about you because I see and hear your distress. O, My lamb, – if only I could show you all the Goodness ahead, – but I cannot. A vision of that magnitude of change would overwhelm you if it came all at once. You must trust Me in little increments of time. Let today unfold in tiny moments without worry over what has passed or what is yet to come. Let Me spare you the details as you take My hand in child-like trust.
I am near. Upholding you, drawing out the tears, smoothing your brow. Take solace in Me. In times of trouble, of which there are and will be many, know that I am God – who bears all things and works things out for Good in the end. You won’t always see those results. I have kind eyes; look to them and release your sorrow and worries to Me. Here you will find comfort and reassurance to get you through the day.
All things can work together for Good, somehow. I can take wreckage and create a new sculpture from it. Let Me hold your brokenness. Trust Me to heal you. You can stop worrying so many minutes out of the day. You are safe with Me. Breathe, and re-set your focus on My Light.
My love is easy: past wrongs forgiven; gentle kisses on your brow. Tender wishes for you to have a pleasant day. I watch you prepare for the tasks ahead of you and rush off into the flurry of activity. Stop long enough to feel My warmth: genuine and persistent. Unstoppable. Nothing you do can “earn” or “un-earn” My love. See My joy radiating all around you, and rest in My peace. Whatever you most need – joy, peace, or love – is available to you. Follow My ways, and simply offer up a heart of gratitude.
Tenderly I surround you. The harshness of the world has at times taken its toll on you. Still, I make every day new and fresh. Allow yourself to shake the dust from yesterday’s concerns off of your feet, and move on into the newness of today. See how I light up the world! All does not have to feel so oppressive, negative, stressful, or overbearing when you open your awareness to My Presence. I am the Light of the world, in whom there is NO DARKNESS, and you, My beloved, are directly tied to Me. Absorb this Light and make Goodness happen in this day despite any and all circumstances you are confronted with. Know Me, and share this gift with others who as yet do not see or recognize My Presence in and around them.
I will show you the way you need to go. I will lead you and others to fresh, new pastures. Take care of My sheep today and along the way because I have given you shepherding skills to use. Go up to the pastures that are wide and deep and vast. You’ll be able to see things in a fresh, new perspective from this vantage point. There you will find plenty of food, rest, and Light for a balanced lifestyle. I will meet you in this place. Walk slow and steady on your way there, exploring and appreciating one pasture at a time.
Remember that you are Mine, and I am the Light of the world. My Presence is all-pervasive. There is no area of darkness that I cannot overcome. I am a protective God, too. My Grace overflows to help with the things that matter most. Wash yourself in this Grace and see if that doesn’t help clear your mind. I will help you focus and show you the way you should go, all in due time.
You are My wonder! I give you free will to choose how to live. It pleases Me when you demonstrate trust in Me with your choices, but no matter what, I love you. My plan is meant to support you, not hinder. I love seeing you receptive to trying new things, and being willing to pursue and persist even when the going gets tough. Come to Me with your choices and listen for guidance in the way you may go if you want to be in line with what I had in mind for you. I want to relieve you of needless anxiety this way.
It is My will that you find the pathway I have laid out for you. I don’t try to make things difficult, but I do wait to make the way clear until you have eyes that are ready to see and ears that are ready to hear. Listen to the aching of your heart, revealing its greatest need. I am guiding you as you learn to pay attention to what I am saying. My voice is powerful, and it will speak to you in due time. Bring your needs to Me in fervent prayer. I honor those who worship Me and long to trust in My desires for them.
I give you this day; notice Me in it. Something will speak to you. Listen, and look for Me. Beauty is all around when you take the time to get the right perspective. I know all that pains or worries you. Rely with certainty on the fact that I am attending to it all. You can still find peace, even when all does not seem “right”. Focus on trusting My Goodness. Constantly I stand at your door, waiting for you to turn the handle to open it and receive My loving reassurance. I am there. I will wait.
