Be still for a moment. Recognize the space around you which is wide open to possibility. Anxious thoughts have a way of clouding the view, making it feel small, confined, and stressful. When you lift your eyes beyond that cloud cover, using My perspective to help, you see vast opportunity that awaits you. Take courage in knowing I am with you and FOR you. Together we can seek and find that greater space to live in. It might mean letting go and saying goodbye to things you know deep inside are not life-giving. I can help you face those. You are stronger than you think and can be brave enough to move away from restrictive, hurtful, or confining environments, relationships, or habits. Come where I am calling you: a peaceful place where love presides over all else.
Stop rushing toward the future or next steps. This is putting you at unrest. I will walk with you; that’s all you need to know for now. I cannot reveal future plans for you to see. It must unfold one day, one moment at a time. Like a child beach-combing with his or her parent, I want to see you pick up each seashell or rock treasure in this day, holding it up for My review along the way. Together we can celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of each thing you encounter. Slow your focus down, allowing time for the present moment to unfold its message to you. My Peace I give to you as you practice this powerful discipline.
It doesn’t have to be so hard. So many of the things you picture in your head or worry about never come true. Rather than always bracing for the worst, try embracing the best today. Picture things turning out well, and live into this. Know that as a loving God I desire good things for you. They are already on the way! Life with Me, daily, can bring unimaginable and far-reaching joy.
Look to Me to find out what it’s like to be joyful again. In My supportive arms there is no room for distracting worries. Learn to quickly release petty irritations in order to move on to greater peace. I will help you. I’ll reveal choices you can make, moment by moment, that buy into a radiant life versus staying stuck in the gray mire of anxiety. See My words as a radiant neon light beckoning you to “Come this way!” It’s worth the effort to release old hurts or unfounded fears, moving toward the Light. Choose to do whatever it takes to step away from negative habits you long to be rid of.
Know that I am GOOD. Know that I also fill YOU with Good. Stop disdaining your human mistakes. It hurts Me when I hear you putting yourself down. Embrace yourself, flaws and all, seeing that the Good far outweighs the negative or any frailties. Try to see yourself as I see you. In My Light there is radiant love, appreciation, forgiveness, and complete acceptance. See My view of you, that you may be radiant with JOY.
I sustain life. Those who believe in Me ‘get this’. I restore a sense of what is right and Good, bringing about justice in due time. To be sustained, you must turn to Me daily – feeding your mind with My words and releasing your problems and anxiety into My hands. I can’t guide you fully if you aren’t trusting Me enough to let Me take over the problem-solving. This is simpler than you are making it by gripping so tightly to the wheel all by yourself. Ask for My help, and mentally hand over the situations and concerns that worry or scare you. Picture Me arranging the details as you focus on whatever I place before you instead. When I am back in charge of your life, you can rest easy.
I have given you many talents, and others are drawn to you. I gift you with My Grace. Now I ask you to see, acknowledge, and embrace your beauty. It may seem easier to embrace only your fallen side, focusing mostly on perceived flaws and faults, but this is not My will. You are beautiful to Me, and extraordinary. I want you to see and trust this! Walk instead from a state of Grace with confidence in what I have created and designed in you; great things shall come. Using your renewed strength of Spirit, step forward with Me today. I am with you always.
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.
