No Need to Over-Indulge

Taste. Breathe. These sensations can bring simple pleasures that I designed and crafted unique to each person. Some smells and tastes bring aversion; others, fond memories and delight. Take note of the smell and taste as your food is being prepared today or consumed to sustain life. Let Me ask you: are you eating to live, or living to eat? It is important to care for your body respectfully and not neglect it. I am a God who provides pleasure, comfort, and healing through food. There’s no need to over-indulge. I bring sustenance and Goodness, and there is room at my table for all to take, eat, and have their fill.

Unexpected Turns

Days like this are all part of My wonderful design. Soak in the freedom to breathe, plan, be active, and laugh. It’s okay to not have everything mapped out. Sometimes the quirky turns of the unexpected are exactly where My blessing lives. Act upon instinct with exuberance and don’t be afraid to initiate big things. I give you these imaginings so that you can bear My fruit. I love it when you live joyfully; your passion is contagious and is meant to uplift the spirit of others, so hear My call to spread good news of great joy.

How to Spend Your Time

Bask in the intimacy of our relationship today. Take joy and comfort in knowing I see you as you sleep, arise, and in your every move. Talk with Me often in your head, acknowledging things you notice, questions you face, and decisions you must make. I can help you choose how to spend your time and what to focus on wisely. Be inspired to do more knowing I place interests, goals, and perspective all as part of My great plan for you. Nothing you do or say goes unnoticed by Me. I don’t criticize your every move, either. I want you to see Me as your great encourager, motioning you to places, tasks, and conversations full of Goodness and meaning. I am powerfully present in it all. Know that you are loved first, then walk into your day engulfed in the grace of this truth.

When Old Memories Plague You

I see when old memories of experiences that scared you or made you feel ashamed return to plague your mind. I watch as you turn them over and over in your head. How I ache to console you when that is happening! Turn to Me for safety. Run to My arms for loving reassurance. Let Me hold you tightly until the things that upset you feel far away. Leave what was in the past back there. Consciously choose to remind yourself that today is a new day. The past doesn’t need to be given power over who you are. Focus on the present – your surroundings, your senses, and My comforting Presence. Choose to believe that all is and can be well again for I love you and I  make all things new.

Life Doesn’t Have to Get to You

I have made it as easy as possible for you to receive My love and My gift of peace. It’s simple, really. I am already here! Ever-present and ever-ready to assist you to breathe ease into your anxious little heart. It takes one simple act on your part: to choose to believe in Me and receive this free gift. Choose Me. Choose “us”! Life doesn’t have to ‘get to you’ if you start to accept that I am already there for you, – never dropping or abandoning you. I will help you get through anything and everything. I even help you rediscover joy. Say yes to our togetherness and allow yourself to breathe a sigh of relief as I comfort you this way.

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.

You Are Loved, Well, and Needed

Oh, My tender-hearted one. I see and hear your hidden self-reproach. Even though others have no idea how hard you are on yourself, I see it and hear it. Sit with Me a while and feel My reassuring arm of protection and comfort around your shoulders. Let’s get back at it today, shaking the dust of yesterday from your feet. Brush off the discouragement and rid yourself of the mean things you’ve told yourself. You don’t need that negativity taking up space in your head, – nor do I want that for you. Replace it with My reassurance that you are loved, you are well, and you are needed. Repeat this mantra throughout the day, because it is My truth for you, and My truth is all that matters.

Steeped in Gratitude

It’s A-okay to receive the blessings I give you without feeling guilty, unworthy, or “too privileged”. I enjoy giving abundantly and freely. You are good at not taking things for granted. I love how appreciative you are when My comforts bring delight to you and your household. Stay Steeped in gratitude and combine it with trusting your inherent worthiness. I don’t want to hold back or dole out in small increments. Let Me lavish you. That’s how My Love works in this life. I know that in return you will be generous with others, as well.

If I Close a Door

If you are challenged by disappointment, hurt feelings or discouragement, turn to Me for comfort. Do not retaliate when these things happen. If I close a door or you encounter hardships, consider that I may merely be nudging you in a new direction. I never place hurt in someone’s life, though. Don’t attribute things that cause pain to being derived by Me because I am not that kind of God. Instead, recognize that I accompany all when they are hurting or in trouble. I’ll walk with you, picking up the pieces and providing healing into a new design for good. Work on not taking offense. Instead, take steps of trust, knowing that you are ever so loved.

My Designs Are Enjoyable

Enjoy! Live a little! Bask in My Presence and take your own agendas lightly, allowing Me to do and accomplish Good work in you. Keep your mind open and attentive to those around you. I speak in many ways- sometimes in those who are seemingly insignificant. You are good at what I designed for you, so take confidence and comfort in knowing and trusting that whatever I place before you is something you will be equipped to handle. My designs are perfect, and even enjoyable. Use your compassionate heart to attend to everyone I place in your path today. Live in My Light.
