Whatever is burdening you, I urge you to set it down. Take a break from obsessing about it or trying to fix it. Put it next to you on the table and come sit with Me for a bit, instead. Relax in My Presence, – experiencing a return of calm and peacefulness. Even if this is only momentary before you scramble to pick it all back up, remember that you can take a break from fretting as often as you need to. I will be waiting, each time.
I am not a dismissive God. The things you think about are not considered too trivial for My listening ear. Let Me love your tender heart and anxious thoughts today. Please don’t view Me as a critical judge of you. Instead, see Me as a compassionate, attentive, and accepting God. Only then can you begin to release the things that bind you. Using skillful hands, I’ll help sort things out. Let Me take over your worries about the hard stuff so that you can concentrate with peace of mind. Focus only on that which is placed before you today, letting Me take care of the rest.
Your heart is not made of stone. It’s made by Me, for love. Sure, it may have some rough edges which have become hardened over in attempts to be self-protective. I can help file those down, returning you to the soft nature of My original design. Ask Me to assist you. Give Me the power to help you release old hurts, getting rid of defensiveness that binds you. You don’t have to remain impaired by a heart locked up so tightly. Trust Me more. Let Love override all things, including your misguided desire to be in control. Put Me in charge of the outcomes, knowing that in your vulnerability others will be drawn closer to you and to My Spirit within you. I will keep you safe, always.
I will help soften your heart. It is so important for you to forgive others and release ALL of the hurt and frustration from past offenses over to Me. Don’t just give Me part of it while you cling to your own retaliatory ideas. Let Me be the Judge and the One who mends. It’s the only way to find true Peace. Hand it all over, finding the weight lifted from your heavy, hurting heart in new and freeing ways.
