When You Feel Defeated

Cast your cares upon Me. Send Me ALL of them, – not just the ones you think are ‘worthy’ of My attention. I care about all of your wishes, dreams, and worries, so don’t hold back. I also know when you feel defeated. I am listening, resolving, and I aim to comfort you. Drink from My well of thirst-quenching water sent to soothe your innermost thoughts. Let Me help make it well in your soul. I am here for you.

Soothe Frazzled Nerves

Take your time today. Move slower, – ‘mindfully’, as some call it. Try emptying your mind of all those to-dos and just be a listener and observer in the moment. See how much this soothes frazzled nerves and replenishes your reserves for the day ahead. Take in the quiet, trusting Me with how the day will play out. You don’t have to have it all mapped out. Take it easier today, leaning into trust of My design.

Handling Disagreements

In this world there will always be disagreements. Sometimes the wayfinding isn’t clear-cut. It’s okay to have your own opinions, but it’s also important to seek to understand others. Hear them out, and if necessary, agree to disagree. You can share your views diplomatically when they are tempered by My Grace. Ask for My help to ‘keep your cool’, and start every comment by considering the most loving and compassionate intention you can back it up with. I will give you the words to say and equip you with the way to phrase it. Aim to treat all with dignity and respect. Trust Me to help.

Thy Kingdom Come

“Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” These are never meant to be ominous or foreboding words. When you ask to follow My will for you or seek My kingdom’s ways here on earth, you will find comfort and peace. Following My will is an act of trust, and in return I give you reassurance that Goodness will surface. While you won’t necessarily be free of strife or difficulties, you will definitely be able to handle them because I’ll equip you and send help. Seek My kingdom (My will) as top priority today and find the calmness you so desire within you to surface.

Called to Be Still

I call you to be still so that you can know Me better. When you are still, you can focus better and find the peace I offer you continually. In the stillness, I can attend to you differently, – providing reassurance that I am with you right here and right now, that you are enough, and that you’ll have what it takes to get through the day. Come, sit by Me and absorb the calming effect of My loving Presence. Stay here awhile, basking in the quiet peace and pool of Grace I have for you.

Your Presence is an Extension of Me

You’ll have what it takes to address the needs of the day. I place you among My people with a directive to show love, hope, and encouragement by sitting attentively with others, validating their experiences, pain, or discouragement. It won’t necessarily be up to you to fix with the right words, though. Just be comfortable pausing to listen without responding at times. Your calm, loving presence will be enough and can be an extension of Me, showing how much you care in a way that words aren’t always needed. I’ll help you figure out what to say and when to say it when you pause to acknowledge My healing ways and ask for guidance. I am with you all, always.

On Sound Footing

Even when you have a busy day ahead, I call you to pull back for a minute and hang with Me first. Sit as still as you can, releasing all the pressure of concerns, worries, planning, and insecurity into My hands. Focus on My pure, simple love for you. You are enough, just as you are. It’s not all up to you. Breathe in My calming words and regain focus. Let the plans and outcomes be 100% left for Me to work out. Stay with Me long enough to absorb this truth until it gives you sound footing for what will unfold as you step into the day.

Things Can, Do, and Will Work Out

You fret about a lot of unnecessary things, picturing the worst-case scenario and bracing anxiously for the unknown.  I call you to address this habit and intentionally change your thought process. When you catch yourself building worries, – STOP. Remind yourself that I am a loving God who is taking care of you and has Good plans in store. Remind yourself you are loved, loving, and capable, and then say, “I trust you Lord. Things will work out in the end. They have before and they will again, because you are caring for Me and my situation.” Things can, do, and will work out. Choose to believe, and allow yourself to live life with greater ease and happiness.

In the Unknown

I give you this day. Instead of begrudgingly or warily getting started, try to see it as a gift,-  full of unanticipated surprises placed by Me for you and interspersed ahead. Recognize that I am already there in the unknown. Picture Me beckoning you from around the corner to accompany Me. Be curious alongside Me. I am a safe and even playful companion. I will help lessen the fear and anxiety.

Sit Still

It’s a gift to truly sit still, absorbing sights and sounds in the present moment. You can allow memories to surface, or thoughts and imagined scenarios for future events to rise and be acknowledged, but try to return to awareness of the present. Now, picture Me sitting with you, – noticing the same things that catch your attention. Smile at our connectedness that occurs without words. I am oh-so-familiar with your every thought and reaction. Tenderly, turn your gaze to Me, sensing My all-consuming love for you. Push busy-ness aside and see what joy I can stir up for you as you spend time with Me like this. Let Me re-energize you by restoring balance and rest in your life.
