Use today as a true day of rest, opting for activities that are not work-related. I want your creative self to be attended to well, fueling your Spirit in ways that energize you. The rest of the work will get done; you can trust Me with that. I design each week to carve out a day like this for soul-filling purposes. Listen to My call, drawing you into awareness of your artistic side. Come to Me; meet Me in the colors and spaces beckoning you in today. You won’t regret it!

You feel the pressure of the clock ticking and finding enough time to do everything that is needed. I get it. But carving out time like this with Me can really help your use of time to be more efficient. When you calm yourself in My reassuring Presence, it enables you to think more clearly and focus on what is most needed in the present moment. Resist the urge to examine your whole list because that just stirs up panic. Turn to Me and remind yourself of My reliable involvement. Tell yourself, “All is well.” I have a plan that unfolds perfectly for you, just one piece at a time. Take one step, pause, look to Me, and then another….soon, you will be further ahead. Use faithful expectation in how I have equipped you for all you need to live well.

Cozy up to Me, like a small child who wants a story read before bedtime. Come close, with child-like hunger and trust for special time together. I am safe, comforting, and trustworthy. I recognize your vulnerable side that just needs to be held a while. When no one else “gets” that or sees you or provides the validation you desire, you can count on Me to be ever-present and aware of all your intricate needs. Come to My open arms for gentle reassurance. I’ve got you, My child; you needn’t be afraid.

Some days are quieter than others. Instead of waiting and listening for some miraculous words from Me, I encourage you to be still and practice awareness of My constant Presence. I am near. I am here, always. You can be profoundly reassured by this truth. Let Me ready you for the day, calming your nervousness with a simple “Hush, my love”. You are LOVED and you are MINE, fully and forever. Repeat this message until it is heard deep within, palpable and grasped.

Be tender and kind to your inner self. Hold every inkling of worry with compassion instead of judging it harshly. But, don’t hold onto it for long. Release your cares to Me with confidence that I listen, and I love you enough to attend to every little thing that distresses you. Ask Me to help handle the unexpected stressors that pop up, too. I am there for you, just like that, in an instant.

Just do it: get out there today. Immerse yourself fully in whatever task or interaction I place before you. Work on being fully present and attentive, not distracted by “what’s supposed to happen next”. Motivation can be that simple. Be here now, for I am with you in this place.

Take notice: I call to you subtly and softly when you slow your mind’s activity enough to be aware of My Presence. I am not just “near”, – I am within you, looking out through your eyes and surrounding you fully. There’s no need to spend so much time comparing, contrasting and rating yourself against others. This sadness Me, because all I ask is for you to love one another and yourself. Learn to recognize the built-in Goodness inherently pairing you and I. This will help you treat yourself and others with more compassion. I will protect you from harm when you encounter ridicule from others who don’t know or trust My Presence. Just continue the Good work I have started in you and spread the news of hope and love. Rejoice in the dawn of this day!

Be wary of things that fill your mind with needless worry. Instead, take intentional breaks from thinking too much. Get up, soak in the views I place in your presence. Notice the beauty, the stillness, and color or sounds. Focus on whatever seems to catch your eye, and acknowledge My companionship in whatever you experience. Remind yourself that you are Mine. In momentary breaks like this I will bless you with the peace of mind you crave.

I call you to attend to certain tasks today, but this is never meant to be heard as a hard task-master. I call out with cries of love for you! How much I desire for you to first and foremost hear My bid for your loving gaze in return. You are so hard on yourself, – so driven with excessive responsibility for many things. As you learn to rely on me, your Maker and the great artist designing your life, you begin to comprehend how My capacity is greater than your needs. Turn to Me and find me Present at all times, and lean on Me to discover the strength and sustenance you need to complete all that is on your plate. Come away with My peace and joy ignited in your spirit.

You don’t have to be so rushed. There are ways to build calmness into your day, and into your head and heart. Choose to sit still, closing your eyes if you can, and concentrate on slow, deep breathing. Notice the Light pouring into your eyes, even through closed lids. Repel thoughts of tasks waiting to be done, deflecting them out of your mind intentionally as you seek My calming Presence. Soak it in. Repeat these mantras until My truth settles in: All is well. I am yours. Hear My voice.
