Allow Your Playful Side

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.

Better Balance

You know when you’ve overdone it. Excessive activity and busy-ness leaves you stressed, fatigued, and crabby. Indulge in some R & R and consider this a Godly move. Choosing to invest in down time for rest will lead to better balance to build up your emotional and spiritual reserves. I need you to be well-balanced, not strung out on overdrive. Honor Me by honoring My design of what brings you joy and peace. Hear My call to give you rest and pleasurable activities These are part of My plan for you, too.

Find Balance and Direction

Listen to the truths surfacing in your heart. I am calling you to pay attention to true self-care, which involves finding balance between activity and stillness. Already you are seeing the  benefits of this quiet time spent with Me. Simplify your life. Take time to reflect on what is most important to you vs. how you are spending your time. I speak to you on a gut-level like that. Honoring Me doesn’t mean overextending yourself, nor does it mean giving up what you enjoy. I designed you with likes and dislikes for a reason and a purpose. Ask Me to help you find balance and direction as you follow what gives you passion. That is My gift to you.

Don’t Have To Do More To Be Loved

You don’t have to ‘do more’ to be loved. Wait here and listen to Me. You are deeply loved, right here and right now. Just breathe. Calm the busy thoughts distracting you and stressing you out. Sit here with Me for as long as it takes to settle down inside. I am here, and I am already fully pleased with you. There’s no need to be worried about impressing Me or others. I’d rather have your attentive companionship than 1,000 things accomplished. It’s okay to pause throughout your day, doing a bit less and just sitting, being appreciative as you connect to Me. Find joy resurfacing as you practice being aware of My Presence and finding balance between work, rest, and play.

Your Busy Head Needs Time Off

I need all of you. Not just a little bit like leftovers after a full meal has been dished out. I want your whole self committed to Me: your work time and your leisure. Part of giving Me your whole self means paying attention to how you find balance. I call you to intentionally set aside time for rest and for “play” because your busy head needs time off. Fill your cup with My reservoir of love by spending time with others you enjoy and who love you back. See what this can do to renew your heart.

Release the Pressure of What-Ifs

As you stop long enough to truly listen for Me, My Grace sweeps in like the rush of fresh air when you crack open a window. The heat of tension and stress escapes out a little at the same time. I aim to soothe you as much as to guide you. I call you to peace. Find balance by slowing your pace and accepting today as it is. Release the pressure of “what-ifs” and “how to’s”, aiming to be present in the moment and trusting My work in your life. Take one thing at a time and crack that window open as often as you can remember to breathe. I am with you and there for you.

Find Better Balance

I see how fatigued you get. That busy head of yours is almost always in over-drive. Park the car for a second and check in with Me. Is everything you are trying to do really a priority when you pass it by My scrutiny? What can you let go of, delegate, or set-aside for another day? Find better balance today by coming to Me to sort things out. I can give you clarity and focus. Remember that I continually offer peace to you. Stop and receive My Grace-filled gift.

Change Habits of Over-Commitment

You don’t have to be “on” all the time. Stepping back and taking time to unplug is equally as important as constantly striving to do and be your best self. You have become a harsh taskmaster over the years. I want you to examine and change habits of over-commitment or feelings of hyper-responsibility. Remember, I’m the One in charge. I call you to add rest breaks into your schedule. Find balance by committing quiet time with Me daily. Release your need to control everything, trusting Me with the outcomes instead. I don’t want you weighed down by over-responsibility. Come to Me, all you who labor and are weary; find rest in Me.
