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.

Moving takes more effort on days like today when you are tired and your head feels groggy. I see; I hear; I know. I love you through it all. Rest your weary head upon My kind shoulders and let Me support you for a minute. Close your eyes and sigh, releasing the grief and the weight of the world. Remind yourself once again that it is not all up to you to handle. Even if it takes all of your energy to trudge into the day, I still want you to move in and take one step forward. Start with just that one step, trusting that I will be helping. Before you know it, you will be walking again with energy, drive, and purpose, – but it all starts with that one step.

When you are worn out, sad, or fearful, I see it all. Today is a new day, though. I ask you to attend to self-care first before helping others. When you feel unsafe, fragile, or broken, I am here; at work in you and in your life. Your Goodness touches others in ways you don’t even realize. Instead of focusing on what you haven’t gotten done, replenish your spirit by knowing My renewing Grace is free. I am here to help you be self-forgiving and clean out those messy thoughts trying to put yourself down. Find rest and comfort with Me as we rebuild your strength and self-esteem.

Know that I am God. My desire isn’t to have you work yourself to the bone. I want you to treasure your spirit as I treasure you. Lay your weary head on My shoulder. Let Me soothe away the strain. I am indeed pleased with you. Work less hard in the sense of taking things one task at a time and not overwhelming yourself. Look for Me in the eyes of others who see you as kind, compassionate, and capable. They recognize your fatigue, too, so there’s no need to hide it. Close your eyes and rest on My shoulder as needed today. Let Me help comfort and rejuvenate you as you drink from My well.

You know when you’ve overdone it. Excessive activity and busy-ness leaves you stressed, fatigued, and crabby. Indulge in some R & R and consider this a Godly move. Choosing to invest in down time for rest will lead to better balance to build up your emotional and spiritual reserves. I need you to be well-balanced, not strung out on overdrive. Honor Me by honoring My design of what brings you joy and peace. Hear My call to give you rest and pleasurable activities These are part of My plan for you, too.

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.

Rely on Me for help when you feel weary. This yoke is meant to be shared between the two of us. Look for Me in the tiniest details and consider it evidence of My great Love for you. A warm beverage or blanket on a cold, rainy day; the splash of fall color on a leaf; a moment of calming quiet in the middle of a chaotic day. The number of ways I choose to surround you in abundant Love can easily be overlooked or imperceptible to you, yet I am with you always, – making the load manageable.
I see your weariness, recognizing that you are bone-tired and lacking motivation. What if I approached you and said, “Get up! Pick up your mat, and let’s go!” Wouldn’t you do it readily for Me, with a renewed spring in your step? What I call you to today may not be as dramatic as that story, but how I call you is the same for you as it was for that person. Your work today, – the job you are “hired” for, – is to follow Me. I call you to the labor at hand, which is work we’ll do together. I’ll energize you, feed you, and assign the tasks to be done. I’ll even equip you with the skills needed for each assignment. Rise up joyfully, My beloved child; it’s time to get to work. Join Me in the day’s adventures ahead.
I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty.
Don’t worry so much about the illness, fatigue, or aches of your body today. I am aware of them, and of your every need. These are not “dry bones”. I fill the marrow of your body with an intention that LIFE occurs. I give you life and breath for purposes that you may not yet see. For now, be grateful for your body, even with its flaws, aches, and pains. Move about your day reassured of My help with an ease that says, “I am capable, calm, and strong enough to handle all that comes my way.” Some days will be light and easy; others make you turn to Me for help bearing and enduring the strain. I will not let you down. Compassionately, I’ll be with you every step, working to mend and heal mind, body, and soul.
