Not Awfulizing Emotions

There are ebbs and tides of difficult emotions that naturally come and go in this life, You can endure them all reasonably well as you lean into My companionship. I face all of these with you, pointing out when you are overreacting or assuming too much responsibility. Instead of chastising yourself or trying desperately to control things that distress you, pick them up and hold them to My Light. Together, let’s observe what is going on and gently set it down, not succumbing to awfulizing emotions or letting fear of the unknown overwhelm you. I will always help you bear what is. Breathe in trust of My helping hand.

Give Others the Chance to Step Up

I have good plans in store. I am a trustworthy God with a greater design at work than what might be visible to your mind’s eye. I’ll help you step back when it’s time to listen and not respond. Watch as I orchestrate giving others the chance to step up to the plate. See how it’s not all up to you. I can take care of you in ways such as this when you relinquish your frantic attempts to be in control. Things don’t always have to go your way to be good. Sometimes a change in plans works out better. You are safe in My arms; trust Me to be there at all times.

It’s Not All Up to You to Resolve

Why do you have such a heavy heart? I see you carrying the weight of the world around sometimes, but it’s not yours to have to worry about. I will put you in places where your presence and attention to others is most needed, but it’s not all up to you to resolve everything. Leave their concerns, illnesses, situations, choices, and consequences for Me to attend to. I’m fully capable of handling it all. Be gentle with yourself today, giving permission to not be perfect or “on top of everything”. Some things will ultimately be out of your control, but you can trust Me endlessly.

Share the Load

I am trying to perk up your spirit. I don’t want you walking around all stooped over by the weight of the world. Choose intentionally to share that load with Me so that you can walk with ease more. That sounds simple, but may take extra effort on your part to change old habits of hyper-responsibility. Ask for My help to recognize when you are assuming more oversight and control than is needed or required of you. Learning to share the load will do you good.

Remove Your Hyper-Responsibility

I want you to work on removing yourself from hyper-responsibility. The world and all of its happenings are not yours to take care of; they belong to Me. Even though I appreciate your good intentions, I want to help you step down from feeling overly responsible for planning, preparing, and outcomes beyond your control. The healthier way to live is to acknowledge My Sovereignty while doing your part to contribute under My direction. Let Me help take the weight off your shoulders. Relax a little more; you don’t have to lead all of the time.

Picture Me Making Things Better

Don’t underestimate My ability or power to heal. I change circumstances and move mountains of pride and hurt. Give Me the power to change your heart and mind. Relinquish your attempts to control situations or people, submitting to My will and My ways for you. Picture Me making things better when you hand your worries and frustrations over to Me. I am in your corner, and I want Good things in your life. You can trust Me.

On Managing Thoughts

You are so critical of your every thought. Sometimes thoughts enter our head that are completely fleeting and irrelevant or inaccurate. Just because a thought enters your mind doesn’t mean you are responsible for placing it there. Consider each thought and release it if it doesn’t align with who you are called to be or how you like to approach life. I’ll help you sort that out. In the meantime, work on recognizing that thought entries are beyond your control and not a sign of inherent goodness or badness. What you DO with them is what matters. Seek the heart of God in what you choose to keep your mindset on, and you can’t be steered wrong.

Where the Wind Blows

You know not where the wind blows, but I do. You don’t need to worry about that. Stride into today letting just enough breeze carry you to the destination arranged for these next 24 hours only. Resist the tendency to think ahead, and just relax into the day,  approaching it with curiosity and hopeful intrigue. You don’t need to map everything out in order to feel happy. See how not worrying about all the details and just letting life unfold enlivens your spirit.

Needed Right Where You Are

You are blessed beyond measure, and held up in worth. I value you and have entrusted you with leadership skills and kindness. You are needed right where you are today. It’s okay to acknowledge your dependence on Me, stepping back and handing Me the reins of control. Let Me lead you as you lead others. When I become the ultimate Guide of your choices, routes and plans, you can sit in the passenger seat at ease while I drive. Allow Me to take you to places unknown, with you safely belted in. Enjoy the views along the way, soaking in how much easier life feels when you allow Me to be at the helm. Today is GOOD and all is well. You can trust Me!

I Make Things Fall Into Place

Ask Me to help quiet your busy mind. Breathe in the peace and calm I surround you with. Picture that My intentions for you are Good. When you release your futile attempts to control things around you, you can then realize I help make things fall into place. Much of your stress can be whisked away. Yes, you will have daily challenges, struggles, and limitations, but elect to rise above them on the rock I provide. Step up with My perspective and take view of My Grace, which will always aid you in resolving the matter of the moment. When you feel most flustered by all that is coming at you, stand still and recognize I am at your side. Nothing can stand against us.
