You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

Why do you berate yourself so much? Nothing you have done will make Me turn My back on you. Breathe in My light by closing your eyes and becoming aware of My constant, loving companionship. I cherish you! Your weariness needs to be attended to. Find rest and store up trust for the days ahead. As you become more practiced in the art of releasing concerns and worries to Me, you will find I attend to each item and this allows you to rest even more deeply and thoroughly. Both rest and action must be honored for your spiritual growth.

Rely on Me for help when you feel weary. This yoke is meant to be shared between the two of us. Look for Me in the tiniest details and consider it evidence of My great Love for you. A warm beverage or blanket on a cold, rainy day; the splash of fall color on a leaf; a moment of calming quiet in the middle of a chaotic day. The number of ways I choose to surround you in abundant Love can easily be overlooked or imperceptible to you, yet I am with you always, – making the load manageable.
I see your weariness, recognizing that you are bone-tired and lacking motivation. What if I approached you and said, “Get up! Pick up your mat, and let’s go!” Wouldn’t you do it readily for Me, with a renewed spring in your step? What I call you to today may not be as dramatic as that story, but how I call you is the same for you as it was for that person. Your work today, – the job you are “hired” for, – is to follow Me. I call you to the labor at hand, which is work we’ll do together. I’ll energize you, feed you, and assign the tasks to be done. I’ll even equip you with the skills needed for each assignment. Rise up joyfully, My beloved child; it’s time to get to work. Join Me in the day’s adventures ahead.
