I am familiar with all the places you hurt and all the things that stir up your anxiety. Come to Me anyway, even though things don’t feel great all the time. Come to Me and find that just for a moment, perhaps, all feels well and manageable. Allow that glimmer of hope to squeak through the cracks of those hard, cold walls of pain or fear. Whisper this truth: I am with you in all things. Nothing will be too much to bear. Let Me comfort you with an attentive reassurance that you are never, ever alone in your suffering.

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.

If you can, find a light-hearted stance that allows you to belly laugh today. See how it can ignite a room when you find ways to laugh good-heartedly at a situation instead of getting worked up, self-conscious, or defensive. Find joy embedded in your soul. It’s in there, even during the hardest challenges you may be facing. Laughter can be a great medicine if you allow it to emerge. Give it a try, even when you don’t feel like it. You don’t have to wallow in self-pity, annoyance, or absence of motivation. I want you to live with joy. If you can’t seem to find it, ask for My help. I’ll assist you with that, for sure.

Let’s start this day out easier. Unplug from the myriad of tasks awaiting you for a moment and sit with Me. Talk to Me about what you treasure and value. Share your worries and concerns with My attentive ears and gaze right before you. Don’t look away or get distracted by your phone Stay with Me long enough to be truly reminded of how much I am involved in your life. I am your Constant Companion who wants so much to sustain you and give you peace and joy. Stay here long enough for your insides to settle down and your anxiety to filter away under the power of My love for you.

Listen to Me and trust that I am the “somehow” God in your life that you need. Somehow, you turn a corner and find that peace that outweighs the anxiety and sadness. Somehow, you get the strength to handle that difficult situation. Somehow, a genuine belly laugh breaks through the tears and disappointment. Somehow, people come through and circumstances change. Life moves on. Trust Me to provide all the somehows you will need. Take a breath of encouragement, succumbing to My gentle reassurance that you will get through all of this.

Whatever is needed from you today is doable. I make all things work together for Good. I won’t ask more of you than what you can truly handle. Try not to look at the day ahead measuring your energy and strength against what you think it’ll take to get through. You can trust that I’ll equip you with enough stamina, and then-some. Look for ways to partner with others and share the load when the opportunity arises, too. Remember, it’s not all up to you. My hand is at work. Don’t let yourself be intimidated by anything I place before you. Believe in how capable you are.

Try not to get flustered today. When something or someone starts to ruffle your feathers, take a breath and turn to face Me. I will help you allow differences of opinion or changes in direction and outcomes with a flexible, amenable attitude. Be open to things even when they don’t go your way. This may be a time for personal growth. As you release your own agendas, you will be encouraged by the trust you invest in My plan unfolding in a divine direction. I will take care of you through it all; I promise.

I still have work for you to do, but that doesn’t have to sound or feel intimidating. My works are easy and will come naturally to you because you are designed by Me. You know what it feels like to be capable and competent based on skills you’ve honed or experiences you’ve been through in the past. Be open, therefore, to whatever I lay before you. When you are presented with something new, don’t show away or retreat out of self-doubt. Instead, say yes – even with shaky hands – because you know how to cling to My grip. Strap in for the ride ahead, picturing yourself joyfully experiencing sights unseen with Me, your reliable copilot, at your side.

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.

Let Me inspire you. If you linger at My table long enough, you’ll feel the nudges I am trying to send. You will hear, feel, and know when it is time to move vs. when you need to be still. When to reach out and connect vs. when to hole up and recover. How to be the helper vs. when to ask for help. For now, be the encourager I created you to be. This starts by knowing you are enough, just as you are. Love and affirm all the intricate truths and facets of yourself. You are beautiful to Me just as you are, and I have so much still in store for you. You can be excited about that!
