Down Time

Today, pay attention to the gift of “down time”. I generously carve out pockets of time with fewer demands so that you can refocus and rejuvenate. It’s important to let go of the constant pressure to perform. I call you away from this anxious lifestyle to find better balance. Allow yourself to just “be”. Soak in what you see, hear, or taste in the moment. Stay with Me a while in this palace of peace and mindfulness. Observe how calming this is, and how much better you function when you take time out to be still, – even if just for a few moments each day.

Unscramble Your Brain

Let Me help unscramble your brain. It is twisted into knots of distractions and worries. I can help unravel your cares, one at a time. Let’s ponder each one slowly and gently, releasing the rest for Me to attend to with you when it is time. Hold them up to the Light, examining them in My Presence. I will instruct you and show you the way to go.  I am a God who truly cares about every little detail of your life. No small thing goes unnoticed. You’ll be able to bear your burdens knowing that I am fully with you.

Releasing Disappointment and Anger

It is better to acknowledge your disappointment and anger, thereby allowing it to be loosened and released quickly. Holding those feelings in or trying to deny them is never healthy. You know that you don’t need to remain under the grip of fleeting feelings like that, because I am a trustworthy God who is ever-present in times of trouble and beyond. Lean into Me when the driving force of emotional winds are strong. I will keep you upright and level-headed, leading you to the stillness outside of its path.

Hopeful Plans For You

Whenever a new year arises, people tend to reflect on where they’ve been and possibilities for where they are going. Be cautious about getting caught up in old ruts where your tires spin in the mud of regret. Also watch out for fear-based projections about what is around the corner,  anticipating that things won’t turn out as you would like or will be too hard to manage. Neither of these things are true. I am a loving God with hopeful plans in store for you. I’ll carry you through hard times and open doors for Good things to arrive in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Choose to concentrate on living fully present in today, and hand Me your past and future. This is how you build new habits of peace of mind.

Take It Easier Today

You have no idea what I’m up to. That’s because you are designed to live in 24-hour increments only. Any more than that is too much to bear, and I am preparing you day by day for what is in store. Take it easier today, living in simple trust of My good plan unfolding just as it needs to. Take things one day at a time and try not to worry about tomorrow. Step confidently into today knowing I am by your side at all times and you can trust Me. You needn’t carry worry about anything bigger than that right now.

Aim for What is Doable

I am a reassuring God. I often see you pushing yourself, striving for that unattainable perfection and trying to be the most thoughtful, capable person who is always on top of everything. Allow Me to bless you with full acceptance of your efforts; I deem them to truly be enough. Yes, I want you to be kind, loving and thoughtful and to use your talents well, but not at the expense of beating yourself up with unrealistic expectations. My bar for you is no higher than what you can comfortably and reasonably accomplish today, – no more and no less. Aim for what is doable and leave the rest for Me to attend. Accept My fully pleased response to you, which never has to be earned. I give it freely.

Worrying About Other’s Opinions

Keep on guard today for times when you are worrying about other’s opinions of you. This is the biggest trip hazard out there, and I don’t want you to fall prey to the devious one’s taunting messages that you are somehow falling short or should be embarrassed. The opposite is My truth, for you are lovely and worthy of attention. You are Good and making a helpful impact in the world. You are My beloved! And you are Mine. You can trust that what you have to say and contribute will be meaningful, and you are right where I need you to be today. Show them the love I placed in your heart, and dazzle the world with My Light inside of you.

No Need to be Carrying Shame

Why are you still carrying around that shame inside your head? When I say you are forgiven, it is a done deal. There’s no need to keep going back and rehashing scenes in your head, beating yourself up over words or actions you now regret. Glance at them if you must, but only to learn what you want to aim to do differently in the future. Other than that, I call you to love yourself and accept the forgiveness and grace that’s already been awarded by Me. I want you to live a life of peace and self-acceptance, knowing that you are loved by Me and that is enough.

I Am Your Protector & Healer

Oh, my anxious one! How I long to scoop you up into My arms like a little lamb, shaking in the dark and cold world. I am your protector and healer. The Light of day is coming soon and will shed new perspective for you. You can trust Me and My plans for Good things to come. I will not let you down. In fact, I’ll keep holding you tightly until you feel confident and reassure again. Stay with Me as long as it takes to settle you down before stepping into the day. I will be with you wherever you go, and continue carrying you as long as you need Me to.

Designed to Live in Peace

I designed you to live in peace. Originally, that was easier to do, but as life piles on it is harder to practice. Peace is attainable, though, – every day. It takes  a choice to defy the negative self-talk when it slithers in, trying to deceive you. Once you give it a hard “no”, turn to My reassurance and open yourself to receiving whatever I deem as possible. You know Me and My ways: always aiming at Goodness and Love. Let Me calm your aching soul today and give you the freedom to experience My holy and unexplainable peace.
