I know you are tired of the car ride with me right now. I see how easily you feel discouraged or crushed in spirit when things aren’t working the way you think they should. I know you sometimes wonder, “Where are you taking me?” and may want to ask Me, “Can I stop the car for a while, or get off at the nearest exit?” I will take over the driver’s seat when you let Me. I have the map, and I’ll provide all the fuel you will need to keep going on this ride. You can trust where I am taking you, even if you cannot see the destination right now. Just knowing we are together in the car will help you manage. You can trust My driving.

O My precious child, I see when your emotions get so stirred up. You don’t have to hide them from Me. I see behind the mask you present to others telling them you are okay and everything is fine, while keeping your disappointment, fears, worries, and discouragement to yourself. I want the honest truth in all of your vulnerability so that I can provide the reassurance you’ll need to get through your todays and tomorrows. Knowing Me doesn’t mean no more troubles will come, but it does mean that all things will be manageable. You don’t have to second-guess how you’ll make it through; just rely upon Me more and you’ll find that peace is available even when it feels like a storm is coming.

There is time enough for everything – even self-care. The last thing I intend is for you to feel discouraged or defeated. Carve out alone time and quiet time today to meet with Me for restoration. Let Me remind you of your likeability and how much you are loved and valued, even if others don’t express appreciation for all that you do. You are living for Me, and My measuring stick is different than the world’s is. Find your purpose and meaning by trusting Me and how I use your life for Good things. You are needed and loved by Me, and that is what matters the most.

The road recently has felt arduous. No matter how difficult, though, I have walked it with you. Side by side, I am carrying the roughest and most grueling parts. I know it’s hard to feel joy when the days are dark and the view appears bleak. It’s not, though. All I can do is reassure you that hope is alive and well, and there is reason to believe that lighter days are in store for you and for those you love. Cling to Me today. Hold tight, and don’t give in to discouragement. You deserve happiness and will find it yet again.

Oh, My tender-hearted one. I see and hear your hidden self-reproach. Even though others have no idea how hard you are on yourself, I see it and hear it. Sit with Me a while and feel My reassuring arm of protection and comfort around your shoulders. Let’s get back at it today, shaking the dust of yesterday from your feet. Brush off the discouragement and rid yourself of the mean things you’ve told yourself. You don’t need that negativity taking up space in your head, – nor do I want that for you. Replace it with My reassurance that you are loved, you are well, and you are needed. Repeat this mantra throughout the day, because it is My truth for you, and My truth is all that matters.

It’s okay to not be happy all the time. On those days when you feel sad or discouraged, treat yourself extra gently, – just as I would. Attend to your needs like you would a sick child: encouraging rest, offering something cool to drink, tenderly stroking their head and praying for them to get better. Lean into hope that things are on the mend and lighter, easier days are ahead. In fact, cling to this hope as your lifeline of truth, because I am here.

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.

I still have big plans in store for you and for the world. I know you’ve doubted that lately, feeling complacent, discouraged, and lacking in motivation toward your part in the change. Try viewing this down time as a platform for recuperating and gaining new perspective. Ready yourself for things unknown and full of exciting promise. You can be at peace in the present, but don’t forget about including hope for the future in what you picture ahead. I’ll light the way.

‘Do not let your heart be discouraged’. Your emotions are real, and allowable. Difficult times will swell up now and then, and it’s reasonable and normal to feel things like distress, anxiety, sadness, or annoyance. By the phrase ‘do not let your heart be discouraged’, I am not saying don’t feel discouragement. Instead, I am guiding you to still acknowledge the truth of how you feel, but to also place it before Me to help you handle. I’m asking you to not let it rule your day or consume your thoughts. Instead, ‘let your heart be reassured’: I’m here, and I’m with you and for you, always.
Today has Light in store for you, even if you are hurting, tired, worried, or discouraged. On those days when you doubt Good things are on their way, look up anyway. Recognize that I am with you in the sources of Light. Let this impact your perspective. Instead of being dragged down your suffering and anxiety, seek Me and find reassurance that I’m working things out. Let Me help brighten your mood and your outlook as you invest trust in Me.
