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.
There are so many disruptions gathering in mind that take you away from hearing My soothing voice. Stop and take a deep breath. Concentrate on clearing out thoughts as you notice your breathing. Now, let My love-message rise and take over your head-space, filling you with Light and Peace. No matter what else is going on in your life – or how pressing and foreboding it all may feel, – My power can overcome all of it. Allow this momentary reassurance to replenish you with confidence. My love for you is REAL, and all-encompassing; ready to help you with everything.
In whatever you encounter today, focus on My love for you. With every bite of food, every breeze that brushes your face, every friendly greeting from others, be reminded that I love you fully and completely, just as you are. When negative self-talk or assumptions try to take over and influence you, consciously push those thoughts aside. Breathe in trust; exhale hurt. Make room for My love to enfold and inhabit you. I can heal and restore you with light and Goodness as you concentrate on My love calming your nerves and soothing your mind.
Love and kindness are central, core beliefs deeply ingrained in you. They are also guidelines for how to behave. When you choose to stay true to Me and My way of life, it has to be centered on love, kindness, and forgiveness. You cannot do this completely on your own, -especially on murky waters that have been stirred by hurt and feel dark and scary. In stormy times like that, it isn’t safe to be out in a boat by yourself. Stay on shore with Me for a while as we sort out the hurt, fear, and difficult emotions. I will take you back out to sea when the water is calmer. Together we can figure out how to handle difficult encounters with others in a way that is rooted in dignity, respect, and love.
I will be with and for you, even when others are not. I call you to a place of peace, regardless of other’s support or lack thereof. Stop trying to figure out how to make them improve or “get it”. Hand that part over to Me, for I am the ultimate “fixer”. You can be more comfortable in your own shoes, drawing confidence from My Love so firmly imbedded within you. Nothing -no person or circumstance – needs to shake that inner peace. I will help overcome ALL of your woundedness. Let Me be the One who mends.
I will restore you and keep you. I will protect and be with you. You don’t have to be self-conscious. Everywhere you go today is where I am. There is no room you enter that I am not already present in. Picture My Presence right next to and even within you, not distantly across the room. I am that close! With Me in you, you can hear My voice enter your thoughts. Today I whisper, “You can do it!” Have confidence in Me and My plan, trusting that all is unfolding exactly as it should.
I know the pressure you feel. I see the good intentions of your heart. I know you even better than you know yourself. I’ve been trying to teach you an important lesson: the combination of thankfulness and trust. In each moment you have the opportunity to thank Me for something and to trust Me with everything. Pausing in your busy day to acknowledge Me with thankful trust will bring you satisfaction, comfort, and peace. Try it now. Ease your needless anxiety, coming to Me with an appreciative heart so that I can refresh your perspective.
I know it feels like there is never enough time. Countless tasks, chores, activities. The days feel too short and the stress load too much to handle. Let Me be the Keeper of your time. Hold the lists before Me, trusting that I can give you the energy and resources to get things done, one at a time. Know that I nourish you when you build in time for rest and play. Trust My God-clock, doling things in right measure and pacing you through life until the work of My kingdom is complete. I promise to not burn you out because I desire your well-being. It’s OK to not finish everything on the list today. Work on not being so fearful of getting it all done. Release those worries to Me, your Time-Keeper.
Whatever is burdening you, I urge you to set it down. Take a break from obsessing about it or trying to fix it. Put it next to you on the table and come sit with Me for a bit, instead. Relax in My Presence, – experiencing a return of calm and peacefulness. Even if this is only momentary before you scramble to pick it all back up, remember that you can take a break from fretting as often as you need to. I will be waiting, each time.
You are so busy. There is a lot spinning around in that head of yours. I want you to put on the brakes and slow down, coming to a stop directly in front of Me. I call you to calmer ways. Once you yield to Me, you will see that all of your obsessive planning is unnecessary. I can and will take care of you, – ALWAYS. Use your ability to trust Me and hand over your worried frenzy. Take time at the stoplight to relax and re-focus. I’ve got this.
