Focus on gentleness toward yourself on days like this when your spirit feels fragile and vulnerable. My ways toward you are kind, and I am moved with compassion for you. Gently draw in, carving out quiet time with Me for renewal. It’s okay to set boundaries and spent time with Me in this special retreat. It is here that I can help reorganize your thoughts and priorities, strengthening you again from within.

When you feel depleted, come to Me to receive the TLC you need. I will feed you and nourish your soul. As a gentle God, I will never turn you away. In fact, I’ve been waiting for you to show up, – watching your circumstances and helping in ways unbeknownst to you already. I treasure you; you are Mine! And as such, I will provide for your needs and sustain you all your days. Come to My table and find a banquet ready and waiting.

Why do you have such a heavy heart? I see you carrying the weight of the world around sometimes, but it’s not yours to have to worry about. I will put you in places where your presence and attention to others is most needed, but it’s not all up to you to resolve everything. Leave their concerns, illnesses, situations, choices, and consequences for Me to attend to. I’m fully capable of handling it all. Be gentle with yourself today, giving permission to not be perfect or “on top of everything”. Some things will ultimately be out of your control, but you can trust Me endlessly.

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.

Be gentle on yourself today. Hush the critical voice, holding tight to the truth that you are loved and likeable. This life is not about being perfect. You are not ‘bad’ when you experience emotional reactions to circumstances or interactions. If you are triggered by something another says or does, step back and ask for My help with perspective. I’ll give you the words to say and the loving way to respond which validates you yet maintains the dignity of others. You are oh-so-valuable to Me. I desire for you to find and keep inner peace. The best way there is to hold My hand hourly.

You are tired. I need you to quiet your thoughts and listen to Me. It is time to replenish the well. Doing so will help your anger dissipate, too. There is no need to be on the defensive. Walk with Me. Bring Me into each encounter. Find that My Presence holds the stillness and calming you need. As you use My gentle eyes, you will be more compassionate and forgiving with others, recognizing that behind their aggression is fear and insecurity. I am watching and involved. My Goodness will permeate here.
I desire to comfort you. Instead of wallowing in the worries and sadness that risk overwhelming you, look to Me. See My loving face aimed straight at you, pouring out compassion and understanding. Rest here within My gaze and realize things will work out. Let gentleness toward yourself and others rule in your heart and your outlook today. I am with you and for you, and I bring Good out of every hard or sad thing you go through.
Try being gentle on yourself. See how this influences your ability to give others Grace, too. There is wiggle room for more kindness to be shared when you relax your judgmental standards and let down your guard. Whenever you hold tight to offenses, I don’t have much space to work in you. The same is true for when you hang on to self-criticism. As you recognize these as barriers to love, bring them before Me as your ultimate Judge. See how I pardon offenses and erase criticism. Watch Me soften your heart and bring you Peace.
Stop all the “doing” for a minute and quiet your thoughts. Allow a hush to settle around you. Release your surface thoughts to Me and then, eventually, your deepest cares. This is not “magical thinking”; it’s allowing Your Creator, – who knows you more intimately than anyone else on earth,- to gently relieve you of your burdens. I pour out reassurance and guidance for you. Knowing you, I understand your needs with more clarity than even you yourself can perceive. Abide in Me today, trusting My power to heal your life. Follow in line with what I value for you by being selective with your thoughts and how you choose to expend your energy.
You may not be as tired as you think. Stress and anxiety can make you over-think plans for your life instead of trusting in My shepherding. Feel the gentle nudge of My staff reminding you that I am leading the way. Your only job is to follow. When you busy your mind with planning and worries you can easily become frazzled and feel fatigued by it all. Wash yourself free of needless worry. Refresh yourself in My basin of Grace where streams of abundance flow. Allow Me to lead you into this day, entrusting all encounters and tasks on the journey to Me. See how your energy rebounds, supplying you with the bounce in your step needed to traverse the hills ahead.
