Take Breaks From Thinking Too Much

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.

Driven with Excessive Responsibility

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.

Build Calmness Into Your Day

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.

Unscramble Your Brain

Let Me help unscramble your brain. It is twisted into knots of distractions and worries. I can help unravel your cares, one at a time. Let’s ponder each one slowly and gently, releasing the rest for Me to attend to with you when it is time. Hold them up to the Light, examining them in My Presence. I will instruct you and show you the way to go.  I am a God who truly cares about every little detail of your life. No small thing goes unnoticed. You’ll be able to bear your burdens knowing that I am fully with you.

Being Around Others

Being around others can be challenging. You long for belonging and acceptance, but interactions with others can be fickle and unpredictable. I am your constant Companion, ever-present and adoring of you. Let this loving truth overpower any fear of being rejected, excluded, or misunderstood. Look for My kindness to appear in conversations and exchanged glances or smiles. Enter these spaces confidently, trusting My Presence in and around you. I will meet you and be with you wherever you go.

Learn how to hone in your observation of things like this and find its calming effect. I want to help you reduce all unnecessary stress, and this kind of slowing will help. Breathe in trust, exhale doubt.

Called to Be Still

I call you to be still so that you can know Me better. When you are still, you can focus better and find the peace I offer you continually. In the stillness, I can attend to you differently, – providing reassurance that I am with you right here and right now, that you are enough, and that you’ll have what it takes to get through the day. Come, sit by Me and absorb the calming effect of My loving Presence. Stay here awhile, basking in the quiet peace and pool of Grace I have for you.

Silence is Golden

You’ve heard the term “silence is golden”. Well, it is! A quieting of thoughts can be accomplished almost anywhere. Even with background noise, you can find an inner silence and solitude. It is here that I speak most clearly and may surprise you with insights, encouragement, and direction. Your silent presence with Me is just as necessary as water and bread for your life. I long to be in this intimate communion with you, showing you the way and the plans I have in store for you. Seek out times of silence with Me to hear best.

Notice Things

Open the shades and peer outside. Take note of the stillness and calm of the morning. Like a blanket of snow, I cover the earth, – hovering over plants and grass, and blossoms awaiting their time in the spring. But I’m not just “out there”. I am inside, – in each home and each person, – including you. I’m the One peering out, giving you eyes that see and moments to capture in your mind. Let your aim today be to notice things with curiosity and delight. See how this lifts your Spirit and your mood. Be elevated by what you take in as you discover all I’ve laid out before you.

I Appear in Mysterious Ways

You know My face. You’ve seen Me before a thousand times, but you don’t always recognize Me. I appear in mysterious ways, you know. Sometimes I am a stranger who greets you with joy. Sometimes I am close to you, as in a dear friend. I may appear as someone in need, but-  in fact, – it is YOU who is in need. Look for Me and you will find Me. Ask Me whatever it is that you need to ask. I am always listening, always present, always available. Listen to Me in return. I speak to you in many ways. Learn to recognize My face and voice. Trust yourself when you hear or catch a glimmer of what you think may be Me. I am closer than you think.
