You can choose to rise above any darkness that seeks to distract you. Hone in on one thing at a time, mindfully approaching each task and every personal encounter with your full attention to whatever is in front of you in the moment. Do not worry about discerning or controlling a laundry list of things to do. Instead, be receptive to My nudge that brings that one thing into focus. This way you can accomplish My works without getting your feathers ruffled. See how the pressures of life are lessened when you practice the art of mounting up and taking on just one task at a time.

All of this striving for perfection is having a reverse effect on you. Unrealistic self-expectations make people more critical and less accommodating. I never ask for perfection from you. Instead, I suggest you come to Me as little children. What child do you know who has never made mistakes or gotten into messes? What child never weeps or gets mouthy or angry on occasion? And yet, their parent loves them. Let Me console you and encourage you, helping build you back up to recognize you are just as lovely with flaws than without any. Those “without flaws” are usually tightly wound, intimidating, and less approachable. Work on taking yourself a little more lightly, allowing truthful expression of emotions and a whole range of them. It’s what makes you alive. Live in the realm of My love without pretenses and a little more in love with yourself today.

Hear Me telling you I am delighted with you! Why do you question and second-guess your every thought and actions with such criticism? That is not how I see you. Your expectation bar may be set a little too high, not allowing room for error and Grace to fill in. Move that bar to a more reasonable, rational, and attainable level. Be kind to yourself in your head, especially as you start to recognize My overwhelmingly unconditional love for you. Bask in this truth, and push the critic far away today, for that voice has no place of belonging in you.

Ponder this in your heart: you matter! You are already forgiven for anything you’ve done wrong in this world, so release the grip that past has on your life. All is well now, and you are free to meet Me here. I send My Holy Spirit to stay with you, so you have a personal guide for how to make daily choices. Talk to Me. Ask My Spirit to help when you feel anxious or troubled. And don’t forget – I am with you FOREVER. You are freed, unshackled, and safe. Whenever you strike yourself down, you wound Me alongside you because we are that intertwined. Use the Power of My Love to build yourself up and others. Your chains are gone and you’ve been set free by My amazing Grace.

You are attending to many people and things right now. It’s easy to forget My sovereignty over life when you are so busy, – and perhaps misguidedly thinking “it’s all up to you” to handle so much. With discipline of your thoughts, you can learn to take each task and conversation before Me. Acknowledge My Goodness in all your ways so that My divine hand can guide your words and actions. Find a peace-filled day in this practice of the art of submission. I may have given you much to handle on My behalf, but never will I tip the scale of endurance beyond what I will equip you with to take it all on effectively.

Just because you are taking on new tasks does not mean you have to lose contact with Me. Moment by moment, I am available to you. Find true quiet moments, – at the table, in the shower or car, wherever you can remember to stop and pause, – and make yourself open to Me. This quiet, genuine communion will have a powerful impact, because it’s a union that no other can destroy. Our connectivity will be warm, understanding, and patient. It is welcoming and inviting, grounded in love. Find how calming it is to be attentive to our deep connectedness. Breathe in deep drafts of My love for you and find healing and freedom in our relationship. I desire to bless you daily with this kind of help. Seek Me and find Me with you.

Remember, I intend for you to live 24 hours at a time. Don’t get so far ahead of yourself with imagined conversations, events, and outcomes. These can cause anxiety and are not of My design. I want you to become dependent on Me, confident in our daily partnership and able to hear My voice and experience My Presence. Don’t be misled into thinking you have to know all the answers and you don’t need Me. Take the grapes from My vine freely, and have your fill of My sustainable supply. It will be substantial enough to meet your needs in this day. Just stay present, concentrating on My daily bread supplied to you.

You don’t have to get caught up in old ways of stressing out. Truly, I intend for your life to be much easier than you make it with all that endless worry. I can help erase those old tapes that have you constantly preparing and planning for the worst-case scenario. Instead, let’s concentrate on picturing things going well. Imagine hopeful things, and focus on them working out well. Then, go and live it out, allowing yourself to enjoy a life of greater ease and freedom from unnecessary angst. If others are not ready to be on board with you, shake the dust from your feet and move on. You are allowed to live a life with happy outcomes. In fact, I want that for you!

I am going to clear your thoughts. You can trust Me to help. I will guide you onto smoother paths when you trust Me enough to let Me lead. Nothing will be too hard for you. NOTHING, – because I am here to help and to uplift you with energy and support. I know you get scared and anxious. I see your fears and I hold every single one of them with compassion. All I can say right now is “Don’t worry today. I am helping behind the scenes, and I love you.” Remind yourself of this truth often and it will calm you. Stay grounded in My very real love for you.

Like a breath of fresh air, joy comes in the morning. The dawn brings elements of hope and new perspective. Tell yourself, “Things are looking up!” and frame your mindset in eager anticipation for Good things to come, not fearing the worst-case scenario. Hoping for the best can set your feet and your mind in the right direction on course to actually see it unfold that way. Don’t forget that I am always with and for you, – by your side as we aim for bright horizons.
