Allow Me to Take the Pressure Off

There are so many things clamoring for your attention as you replay thoughts from previous encounters or imagine interactions yet to come. Both are needless activities. I call you to awareness of the present! You are Mine. Stop and take stock of everything I am providing in this very moment: food, warmth, love, safety, security, – plans for your welfare, not for dismay! Your flesh and bones are in working condition for the tasks I have in store for you. Stop agonizing over insignificant details. Give in to My Will, discovering how I make life flourish for you. Abundant, tender, meaningful life. As you rely on Me to take care of you, worries about the future will lessen. My reliable provision is there for you, so allow Me to take the pressure off.

No Need for Self-Doubt

You can trust Me to be present in every encounter and interaction today. My Presence can bring you a sense of calm. Work on identifying when old habits of angst, dread, worry, or fear start to arise. When you recognize those are happening, say to yourself “Out! These feelings don’t belong in my head.” I have designed your day and you are perfectly equipped to handle whatever comes before you, so there’s no need or use for self-doubt. I am with you and for you, and you are needed and valued exactly as you are without any pretenses. You can trust Me.

The Parts You Contribute

You don’t have to get so worked up over things today. Ask Me to help you settle down inside. When you start to rev up with anxiety or kick into control mode out of fear, push the pause button and turn to Me for perspective. Take a deep breath. Remember that I can and do turn all situations into good results over time. It’s not all up to you to lead, fix, or control. Once you see the outcomes are not all up to you to create, you can get back to concentrating on the parts you contribute. Remember how capable you are, and trust that I equip you for all that is needed. You can count on Me to be there with and for you, always.

Smoothing the Fears and Tension

Let Me help you quiet yourself, as completely as you can. Do not invest your thought time in needless worries. Come to Me. Be still before Me and know that I am God. Recognize Who you are sitting with! I am the Almighty Creator of all things! All-powerful, all-loving, capable of greatness. But I do not Lord this OVER you. Rather, I call you into My loving arms, wanting to embrace you fully and tenderly, smoothing the fears and tension you experience and sorting out the difficulties you face. The good news here is that I am at work in your life. Seek to trust Me with all things. Prepare yourself to step in the direction I point you for your life’s purpose. I love when you sit with Me like this, quietly resting in My Presence and readying yourself for the plan. Thank you for giving yourself to Me during this time.

To Be Truly Loved and Accepted

I am yours; you are Mine. Repeat that to yourself and let it sink deep inside beyond your worries, underneath your stress, and into your very soul. Unravel the doubts, the lament, the self-degradation by using this utter truth. As you settle into knowing that you are Mine, let it permeate your whole being until you find peace. Absorb what it is to be truly loved and accepted. Allow this truth to prepare you for the day ahead, knowing that all else is relatively insignificant. You cannot earn My love, nor can anyone else take it away. Be confident in My ultimate plan for you, and rest in my reassurance.

Untie the Knots

Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to quiet that busy, fretful head of yours. Try this tactic: tell yourself repeatedly “Nothing matters as much as I think it does.” The only thing that truly matters is using critical thinking to determine “What is the best way to be loving in this scenario?” If you see another person tangled in distress and can recognize the ropes that threaten to trip them up, help untie those knots by encouraging them to trust in Me.  If you find yourself wrapped in a tangled rope of worry over something I didn’t place in your path for you to address, step aside and let Me handle it instead. I will give you strength and insight to know how to handle each situation you encounter.

When Others Are Dealing With Troubles

It’s okay to feel content even when others are dealing with troubles of their own. You don’t have to feel guilty about this. There are ebbs and tides to all of life’s struggles. No matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to fix everything for others. Even with Me in your life, there may be unresolved troubles and worries. Let Me help you show love and compassion to those you care about. I never promised a trouble-free life, but I do offer peace. Being content and releasing any concerns about things beyond your control to Me will help you experience peace. My capacity to heal is far-reaching and available to all. Allow Me to renew your hope and to take care of those you love.

Worries That Trip You Up

Your feet are catching on senseless worries that trip you up. Stop stumbling by recognizing that pride and ego are difficult forces to be reckoned with. I can help you with that. It may require you choosing to allow Me to be in charge. When you take a haphazard path full of insecurities and questions about your value, worth, and capabilities, the risks of tripping, falling, and injury are greater. Worrying about one thing after another, or trying to control outcomes over which you are powerless, will only cause additional hurt and frustration. Step back, allowing Me to help you face the unknown and unfamiliar. You can proceed with trust in My plan and My purpose for your life, helping you get around or move those obstacles. I can help stabilize you, – just turn to Me and ask.

When It Feels Like Too Much

There are so many pressures in this world vying for your attention. Phone calls, texts, emails to answer; invitations to respond to; plans to be made. When it all feels like too much, I know. Turn to Me for help making space in your head, and to find true quieting. Hear Me saying “What is necessary will be accomplished. What is not can wait. I will help. Hand your list over to Me”. Stay close behind Me, following in My footsteps as I help you focus. Cling to Me, and trust how I am rolling things out. By the end of the day, all will be well.

Good With That

Know that you are enough for Me, and I am enough for you. Be good with that. Come to Me with your worries and fears when they creep in and start to unsettle you. Hand them over to Me, then rest with trust in My arms. As you recover and regain your footing, look back at Me, your constant companion, with each step you take forward. Live in 24-hour segments, releasing the cares of tomorrow and the regrets of yesterday. Know that I’ve got your back and you are truly loved. Don’t worry about getting it all done today; sometimes only part of the work is necessary. Piece by piece, you will accomplish what is needed and still be able to breathe in My peace.
