I know who you are and how you work, – even better than you know yourself. You don’t have to worry about what other people are thinking anymore. As you are receptive to My will and My plans, you will find calm and confidence. When you choose an attitude of acceptance and gratitude, your eyes will be opened and your ears will be able to hear. Be open to possibility and to extending your hands as the day dawns. I will be with you every step of the way. Let’s celebrate life together. You can leave doubt by the wayside.
Look at how comfortable you are when you take time to sit in My Presence. All the cares of the world seem to wash away, at least briefly. I see your anxiety start to rise as you picture moving into your day, facing a multitude of tasks and encounters with others. This is why I teach you to cling to Me. Like a scared or overwhelmed toddler entering a new place, I will pick you up, comfort you, and carry you in… setting you down and urging you to go interact with others when I deem you are ready. You can look back over your shoulder at any time and be reassured that I am still here, – watching, present, and safe within reach. Go forth with confidence, knowing we are always together. You are Mine.
I see your struggle with finding motivation. I have the power to ignite you. Ask Me to fill you with a desire to fulfill the purpose and plans I have in store for you. Look for My Spirit alive in you, – able to equip you with a zest for living and a desire to get going today. Tell Me that you choose to live well for Me. I love hearing that! I will support and uplift you each time you choose to say YES.
I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest.
Your mind is foggy and weighed down. Picture Me instead. Focus your thoughts on an image of Me standing lovingly in front of you, inviting you in to the day as I put my arm around your shoulder and guide you through each doorway. You have no idea what’s in store, but I do. Let’s head into the unknown together with peaceful and even joyful anticipation of all we will encounter.
I have mapped out a course uniquely designed for you. It’s a topographical map, with bumps and ridges as well as patches of smooth green. I am with you in all of it -climbing the heights and crossing the valleys. Try viewing it all as beautiful, not arduous or “too hard”. As your personal trail Guide, we will take steps in a doable pace. Follow Me with whole-hearted trust and inquisitiveness for what is around the corner. Envision Goodness unfolding all the way.
I have more in store for you! Don’t give in to panic or distressed thoughts. Most of what you imagine as trouble spots never actually occur. Continue looking to Me and latch onto the concept that My plans in store for you are Good and GRAND. My love for you is immense, and I know what is needed to both build up and nurture your soul. Take comfort in Me and all that is ahead.
Clouds in life come and go, but My Light is always present, shining through and beyond them. You don’t have to be so weighed down by the clouds when they are present. Remember that the clouds are always in motion, moving on. Eventually you will feel the Light again. You will get through this. Trust My constant warmth, accessible even under cloud cover. Know that I am with you always, and no darkened experiences can take away our bond.
I am not the kind of God who withholds anything from you ‘until you get it right’. Stop your self-imposed pressure to be so “on” all the time, striving for a perfection that is not demanded by Me. Thinking you have to be 100% giving, kind, and perfect all the time is not realistic,- nor is it part of My design. All I desire for you to choose is to love and be loved. This includes loving yourself enough to be okay with real emotions, examining them as they arise and releasing any concerns into My loving, capable hands. I will assist you in dealing with them. It’s good and reasonable to have some flaws. Choose love, -including self-love, – today.
When you are ready, I will show up. Even though I am always a reachable God, there is also an element of mystery as to when, how, and where I speak to you. Regardless, I am always present, – silently accompanying you. Wait to hear My Voice. You will recognize Me! You’ve heard Me before and answered My call to you many times. There is value in waiting, and in this time for reflection. You can rely on Me even when I appear to be quiet.
