Pay attention to your body today. Notice the signals for when it needs a break or wants you to cut yourself some slack. Rest is just as important as exercise, good nutrition, and hydration. Everything in checks and balances. Take time to move, but also carve out time for slowing and mindfulness. You can have both in your routine, you know. Ask for My help when life feels hard or even before it becomes overwhelming. It doesn’t have to feel hectic all the time.

All is well. Even in times that feel chaotic and busy, this can still be a foundational truth. The true bottom line is that I am in control, and I make all things work together unto Good. Sometimes you have to move over and let Me drive, though. Life could be easier for you if you allowed yourself to rest comfortably in My passenger seat. Don’t be mistaken by thinking you have to plan for and control everything all the time. Try the ride from the passenger seat today and see what I mean.

There will be time enough for everything. You get so tangled up in worries that you’ll forget an important detail, trying to be so on top of things all the time. Its exhausting watching you strive this way, often mistaking your regimens as being what I ask of you. I call for BALANCE. Rest is part of that balance. You don’t have to fear not being ‘productive’ all the time. Come play with Me and take time to attend to all the facets of yourself. It all fits into My grand plan for you. Find me as you rediscover what you love and unearth treasures you forgot you had all along.

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.

You require more rest and balance. For some people this comes naturally and easily, but others like you have to work hard to establish boundaries and carve out time for rest. It may mean setting boundaries with others or boundaries against your relentless self that is so driven to accomplishment and perfection. Ask Me what is most needed today, and acknowledge the places you are vulnerable. I am not a harsh task-master driving you until you are weary in your bones. Don’t let exhaustion overcome you. Find rest for your body, soul and mind with My help. Remember that My first call invites you to peace.

I am a God of leisure, just as I am a God of work. Take time to notice things around you as you move at a relaxed pace. When you are too busy and hurried, you may miss all the tender gifts I have placed within your sight and reach. Work on silencing your thoughts and listening with all of your senses from time to time. Why do you push yourself so hard? Find the balance I intended for your life and nourish your soul.

Today I ask you to concentrate on doing good things for others. It takes effort to listen well, being focused and attentive to needs beyond your own. If you take one interaction at a time, by the end of the day you will be able to see that what was accomplished was enough. Take periods of rest, too. It’s okay to not overextend yourself. I am teaching you dependence upon Me, and learning to pace yourself is part of that education. I desire for you to live in peace, and not to be taking on too much that will overwhelm you. All is and can be well.

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.

I know your heart and its ways – how you long for time alone and rest. I see how you push yourself to accomplish many things as you interact with others daily. I have plans in store that account for your abilities as well as for your needs. Seek balance between giving of your time and finding rest. The ebb and tide of life’s demands requires that you take time to replenish. It’s important to make time to observe and gear up as well as to extend yourself. Like tidal waves that reach the shore then retreat for a while, only to roll back again later, I will give you enough energy to accomplish each task for My purposes. I will shed light on what to pursue in your heart, and will also supply rest and refreshment. Step slowly, watching for My hand in your day’s plans. Feel the Spirit’s flow of extending, reaching, and then retreating. Rest in My perpetual call to love and to rest.

I am working behind the scenes so you can lighten up a bit on yourself. Let joy bubble up from beneath the surface by allowing your playful side to peek through. Go ahead – laugh a little at yourself and your circumstances. This will help ease any strain caused by them otherwise. Remind yourself that what matters most is to live with love. Being able to shrug off minor irritations will help shift the weight to a more balanced perspective. You don’t have to live under all that pressure. After all, -this, too, shall pass.
