Handling Disagreements

In this world there will always be disagreements. Sometimes the wayfinding isn’t clear-cut. It’s okay to have your own opinions, but it’s also important to seek to understand others. Hear them out, and if necessary, agree to disagree. You can share your views diplomatically when they are tempered by My Grace. Ask for My help to ‘keep your cool’, and start every comment by considering the most loving and compassionate intention you can back it up with. I will give you the words to say and equip you with the way to phrase it. Aim to treat all with dignity and respect. Trust Me to help.

The Driver’s Seat

My desire is to give you true peace of mind. Today, try pulling back if you find yourself moving into an anxious driver’s seat. Slide over to the passenger side and hand Me the keys to take you where you need to go. I will help navigate the turns, and I know which speed is needed for each length of the road. Breathe easier with Me in the driver’s seat and you safely buckled in by My loving hand. I won’t steer you wrong.

Wellness Comes From Slowing Down

Try simplifying today. Don’t take on too much. Take simple steps, slowly attending to one thing at a time. Hurrying all the time and carrying such heavy loads of pressure is not healthy for your mind or Spirit. Wellness comes when you learn to slow down. What most needs to be done will get done, and the rest can apparently wait. Ask for My guidance to help you sort out priorities, trusting Me to handle the rest. I am with you and for you this way.

A Different Route

Wherever you go, I will go. Your life is full of your own choices. No matter what, I will never abandon you. As you choose your path for today, consider stopping to ask Me for directions. I may set you on a different route than you had planned, so be open to that. My route may take you to new and unexpected places. These may take a little extra work on your part, but I’ll equip you for it all. The choice of direction is always yours, but I will be with you wherever you go.

Silence is Golden

You’ve heard the term “silence is golden”. Well, it is! A quieting of thoughts can be accomplished almost anywhere. Even with background noise, you can find an inner silence and solitude. It is here that I speak most clearly and may surprise you with insights, encouragement, and direction. Your silent presence with Me is just as necessary as water and bread for your life. I long to be in this intimate communion with you, showing you the way and the plans I have in store for you. Seek out times of silence with Me to hear best.

Further Than You Planned For

I am whispering to you. So often My lambs do not hear My voice but it is there, beckoning them to safer ground and providing affection, encouragement, and understanding. Sometimes that safer ground is higher ground, – one that calls you to make harder steps or pushes you further than you planned for, – but it is always worth the effort. The sights and peacefulness this higher ground brings is far more satisfying than the immediate, fleeting pleasures that tug at you and try to distract or misguide you along the way. My way is steady and sure. Take the high ground today at all costs. When the steps seem steep, challenging, or unsteady, I will take your elbow. I never let go of you. Join Me in the direction I prefer and have designed for you. Even when My lambs stray off the intended path, My hand is outstretched and waiting to guide them home.

Find Balance and Direction

Listen to the truths surfacing in your heart. I am calling you to pay attention to true self-care, which involves finding balance between activity and stillness. Already you are seeing the  benefits of this quiet time spent with Me. Simplify your life. Take time to reflect on what is most important to you vs. how you are spending your time. I speak to you on a gut-level like that. Honoring Me doesn’t mean overextending yourself, nor does it mean giving up what you enjoy. I designed you with likes and dislikes for a reason and a purpose. Ask Me to help you find balance and direction as you follow what gives you passion. That is My gift to you.

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.

Go Where I Ask

Do you love Me enough to go where I ask today? I know you are tired. I see your fatigue. Nothing goes unregistered by Me. Take some of that pressure off your shoulders simply by acknowledging My supply. I give ever-enough to get you through the day, every day. You don’t have to feel responsible for everything all the time. (I know how you think). Let Me be in charge, and you just follow along. Before you know it, things will get done. All will be well.

What I Put On Your Heart

Stay true to what I put on your heart and what resonates on a gut-level. It is here that I speak to you in mysterious ways. The nudge to call someone that comes out of the blue. The urge to truly listen and focus on strangers or acquaintances who talk to you, not giving in to distraction or allowing impatience or boredom to pull you away. Everyone deserves to be heard, – even you. I assure you, I am listening. I may be urging you to speak up, too. Listen to your heart and sense the part that is My voice calling out. You can trust the way I speak to you and sense the direction you are to take.
