It All Starts with One Step

Moving takes more effort on days like today when you are tired and your head feels groggy. I see; I hear; I know. I love you through it all. Rest your weary head upon My kind shoulders and let Me support you for a minute. Close your eyes and sigh, releasing the grief and the weight of the world. Remind yourself once again that it is not all up to you to handle. Even if it takes all of your energy to trudge into the day, I still want you to move in and take one step forward. Start with just that one step, trusting that I will be helping. Before you know it, you will be walking again with energy, drive, and purpose, – but it all starts with that one step.

Relax Your Face

Relax your forehead, face, and jaw. You carry so much tension at times, unaware of how hard you are striving and concentrating. Remember, you can release the planning into My capable hands for a minute and actually find a sense of calm and peace descend. Just close your eyes for a moment and breathe deeply, perhaps telling yourself “It’s okay. I can trust God to help work it all out.” You CAN trust Me; this is an absolute truth. I do so love you and am caring for every detail and concern in your life.

A Flexible Attitude

Try not to get flustered today. When something or someone starts to ruffle your feathers, take a breath and turn to face Me. I will help you allow differences of opinion or changes in direction and outcomes with a flexible, amenable attitude. Be open to things even when they don’t go your way. This may be a time for personal growth. As you release your own agendas, you will be encouraged by the trust you invest in My plan unfolding in a divine direction. I will take care of you through it all; I promise.

Relaxed and Unphased

Just show up today, without expectation or undue pressure as to what you think you must accomplish. Look to Me with a fresh face, open and ready for what I may surprise you with. You are ever-so-capable of handling whatever comes your way, so settle into this truth and allow yourself to be relaxed and unphased. No matter what, you and I can do it well together.

Start with Calming Reassurance

You can rely on Me. No matter what you are facing today or in the days ahead, I am right there with you. Grasp My hand and hold tight to steady yourself instead of giving in to old habits of anxiety and worry. I want happiness for you, starting with calming reassurance. Anxiety stems from mistakenly thinking you won’t have whatever it takes to move through life’s experiences, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. I will equip and sustain you with more than enough for what you need. Trust Me in this truth and in My love for you, which is always there to steady you.

Peace When a Storm is Coming

O My precious child, I see when your emotions get so stirred up. You don’t have to hide them from Me. I see behind the mask you present to others telling them you are okay and everything is fine, while keeping your disappointment, fears, worries, and discouragement to yourself. I want the honest truth in all of your vulnerability so that I can provide the reassurance you’ll need to get through your todays and tomorrows. Knowing Me doesn’t mean no more troubles will come, but it does mean that all things will be manageable. You don’t have to second-guess how you’ll make it through; just rely upon Me more and you’ll find that peace is available even when it feels like a storm is coming.

I Help Repair Messes

I am your God, – with you and for you, – always present at attention. This means you no longer have to worry about being ‘perfect’ or ‘worthy’. I notice all of your good intentions and thoughtful ways. I also see the screw-ups and mishaps, unintentional or humanly flawed as they are. The bottom line is that I want Good things for you, regardless of mistakes. I take messes and help repair them. Together we can ask for forgiveness as needed and deliver acceptance to others without holding back. Come to Me with the broken parts of life, in faithful hope that I will help things get better.

A Sip of Contentment and Reassurance

You strive so hard. That busy head has a hard time shutting off or slowing down. Constant planning and busy-ness can be signs of how uncomfortable you are in the waiting and with silence, but you need not be so afraid. I’m inviting you to enter this new year differently. Come, sit often with Me at the well and experience My waters of grace and fulfillment. Take a sip of contentment and reassurance. I have you in the palm of My hands at all times. Sit in silence regularly with Me, truly handing each day over and practicing the art of trusting faith. Soon, you will find yourself actually longing for silence because you’ll understand how much our time together like this helps. Even if you only have a moment, seek My peace-filled Presence in silent communion with Me.

It’s Okay To Not Be On Top Of Everything

I am still with you and for you, even when you feel like you’re coming up short. It’s okay to not be on top of everything all the time. Sometimes, this may offer others the chance to step up to the plate. You can trust Me to be God and to work things out even if you feel unprepared. Let Me be in charge while you take a step back, and watch My great hand at work. Find peace deep within as you trust Me to take care of all things.

Give Me Your Lists

There are many distractions tugging at you for your time and attention. Practice slowing and choosing one thing at a time to focus on. I can help you organize what to prioritize. Give Me all of your lists and the weight of your worry. I am here, always trying to make it more manageable for you. Problems arise when you look at the mounds and forget I am here, steadily taking care of the stacks, one by one. Look to Me for guidance and lean on Me for security. Peace is available when you remember I am in your midst and will never allow things to be too much to handle. Trust Me: we can get through anything together.
