Some days it’s hard to find direction with the way your mind spins with mini panic attacks: “Don’t forget ____!” “Make sure you ____!” It’s at these times when you most need Me but can hardly hear My voice over the din of to-do’s. Stop and recognize that I will equip you, and everything that is essential will get done. Thank Me for My companionship. Recognize your neediness and ask for My help. Only then can I step in to effectively provide you with peace. Remember Who is in charge and Who you belong to. Not everything will get done today, but that’s okay. I’ll still love you and help you see what matters most.
I will love you for all time, no if’s, and’s or buts. You may be making things harder in your mind than they need to be. Stop your crazy-making ways of striving all the time, as if pushing yourself to the limit somehow pleases Me. That is distorted thinking. Yes, I call you to action – but not action that causes you to burn out. Daily I encourage you to BE STILL and know Me. This time of quiet is necessary to rejuvenate your Spirit. By connecting with Me each morning you can reap the benefit of enhanced awareness of My constant companionship throughout the day. I never leave your side, even when you aren’t ‘being productive’. My love for you is unending.
Pace yourself. Take a moment here and there to just breathe in My beauty placed around you. Stop and be grateful for our companionship. You aren’t expected to be busy every second of the day. By stopping to take it all in you will find the amazing gift of My Peace readily accessible anywhere you need it. My almost unfathomable love is available every second of the day so remind yourself often to pause and receive it!
“That close”. You are “that close” to Me. This phrase is often used to talk about a near miss, but I say the opposite. You are so within reach that we actually overlap, with you-in-Me and I-in-you. I am not dodging you. We are already connected. Your only task is to be receptive and seek awareness of My glorious Presence within, — accompanying, empowering, and healing you. Be mindful and aware of our union today, allowing this to influence your choices and motivate your interactions.
I know you try your very best every day. I see you striving diligently to work hard, be thoughtful, and be fruitful. Thank you, My child, for your dedicated service to Me and My kingdom. Some think all of this hard work only brings rewards in heaven. I tell you that you can expect good things as soon as in this day ahead – not because it was “earned”, but because I desire your happiness. Awareness of My constant Presence with you is all you need to find true peace. From there, happiness can fall into place. Find Me in your midst, joyfully awaiting your attention and companionship.
Try your best to simply be aware of My partnership with you today. Instead of putting Me on a distant pillar as if I’m watching and waiting to catch you tripping up, work on a refreshed image of Me standing alongside you as your partner and friend. I’ll go anywhere with you, you know. I’ll also share in the load of work to be done. You can even enjoy My Presence and companionship, finding things that make us laugh together or noticing things that bring awe into our view. Let’s hang out today, enjoying life no matter what the day brings.
My hand is at work in your life in mostly imperceptible ways. This does not mean I’m orchestrating only demands upon you, nor does it mean your life will be free of hardships. I ask you to be a companion to others along the way. I need your voice to help shepherd and guide My sheep on earth. Do so patiently today- and trust My involvement in your acts of outreach. I will give you the words to say and the steps to take in bringing My Good to all that you encounter today. In this, you will know joy.
Let Peace be your friend today. Link arms and enter rooms slowly and observantly together, aware that My Presence is with you in each place you go. Look knowingly to My Spirit accompanying you as your BFF (Best Friend Forever). You don’t have to get so worked up or anxious. I’ve got this, and we are together for every move. Take confidence, using deep breaths to calm yourself as aided by My Peaceful companionship. We’re in it all together.
