Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
I made you a smart person who is capable of clear thinking, sound judgment, and good decision-making. Even with all that ability, though, sometimes life hands out situations that are hard to sort out. I can tell you this much: as you make your choices, I will never leave your side. When you ask for My guidance, I will lead the way. You have to work on trusting the decisions and not looking back or second-guessing the choices that are made. Move on, facing forward with determination, faith, confidence, and peace of mind. Knowing I am with you always will help you rest. You can’t go wrong with Me.
I have big things in store for you – bigger than you can even imagine. Let My plan unfold with an open mind to all that I call you to do. You are already Mine, – instilled with ability to bring about my purposes of healing, connection, and kingdom-building. Trust Me with this every day work, uttering a willingness to accept whatever is laid before you. Nothing will be too hard with Me there to guide and accompany you. You can even be peaceful in the process. There’s no need to waste energy on anxiety. Put aside those old ways, ready for all that’s coming.
On the inside you might feel scared or insecure, but I have insulated you with My protective arm. This same arm not only shields, it also lifts you up and moves your forward. Upheld by My strength, you will have what it takes to face uncomfortable situations competently. With Me on your side you can speak and act with confidence. I designed you to be capable, so go forth boldly today. Insecurity and fear will wash away with each step you take.
It pains Me to hear you beating yourself up so much on the inside. Your unrelenting self-critical thoughts are doing damage to My beautiful creation. Those exaggerated images of your flaws are blown out of proportion. Oh My Child, come to Me to hear the truth and find the reassurance you need. Look up, My beloved, and recognize the Goodness I designed and see in you. I long to restore your self-image to its natural state of ease and radiance. Trust Me, believing that you are good, kind, and capable. You are a reflection of Me. Try being gentle and kind in your self-talk today.
Hear Me: I need you. You are Mine. These things go hand-in-hand. Spend time together with Me first every day so you can settle your thoughts and be in tune with My unconditional Love for you. With this as your starting place, you’ll become aware of what I ask of you today, knowing full well that I’m your backbone, protector, and guide. I won’t push you beyond what you are ready for. Be open to My call, which ALWAYS starts from a place of Love. If fear tries to come into play, breathe deeply of My reassurance and tell it you can’t be tricked into not believing all you are capable of today.
I recognize your weariness and the emotion that accompanies it. Your anxiety and stress, – sometimes including sadness or irritability, – leave you feeling overwhelmed. Press on. Come to Me with all of it and rest a while by My side. Let the tears fall. Then, after you have been able to share the load with Me, rise up. Notice that I don’t stay seated, pushing you away while saying “Just get going”. No, – I rise with you. We’ll press on together. We can handle anything this way. Let’s take it slowly, – one day, one hour, one moment at a time.
