Be Open to Change

Go ahead -imagine big things! Don’t forget to include Me in that vision, walking side by side with you and lighting the path with My glory. I create big things and have so much intended for you. Do you believe this? You must alter old habits of worry and leave anxiety in the past. The better you get at releasing your worries, concerns, and hurts to Me, the calmer and more receptive you will be to the Good I have prepared. Turn your whole life over to Me, allowing Me to guide the plan as I see fit. Be open to change, trusting Me to be lovingly in charge of it all. 

Get Ready for More

Let yourself embrace a broader view. You can walk into this new year and into any situation with confidence and curiosity once you accept the fact that I’ve got this, and I have so much more in store. My plans for you are BIG. Don’t let that thought intimidate you. You are small enough to be Mine, yet great enough to handle whatever is coming in tandem with Me and My purpose. Don’t kid yourself into expecting or desiring less. Get ready for more, anticipating that important and life-giving changes are ahead. My plans for you are GOOD. 

Do Something Small

Remain obedient to the call I place on your heart. Listen for Me daily as I gently guide you with each small task. You don’t have to see the full picture yet. It’s okay to do something small today. Each little piece adds up over time, and no act of kindness or intentional task completed in My name goes unnoticed by Me. Do these things in a Spirit of Love and willingness. Your servant heart is glorious to behold and gives My hope to others. 

Hang With Me in the Present

Don’t jump too far ahead with all your imaginings. I have plenty in store for you in just this day alone. Reel those thoughts in when they try to shift you into planning mode. Pull back and remind yourself to hang with Me in the present. Find the glory in the current moment. You’ll be better able to recognize Goodness when you turn to seek My smiling face. Let’s take notice in moments like this together often today, – thoroughly enjoying each other’s presence. 

Hard On Yourself

You are special to Me. I am so pleased with you! You are very hard on yourself and this breaks My heart. Don’t fall into the trap of needless anxiety or unwarranted shame. I call you to a life that THRIVES! Abundant life, filled with Goodness. Face your days with eyes seeking and anticipating My Goodness. This perspective is critical to your capacity to receive. Thwart the tendency to worry or over-plan for potential disaster. Smash those worries with a rock of confidence in My powerful plan for Goodness. Be bold and purposeful on this path. 

Unnecessary Guilt

Getting rid of unnecessary guilt is key to finding peace. Stop thinking you are so responsible for everything. You can’t control the outcomes of every situation, nor do I expect that from you. Work on recognizing when you are taking unnecessary blame on yourself. Sometimes all your effort still produces disappointing results. You can’t fix others emotions. Show that you care through your love, but release the desire to control outcomes. Hand that part over to Me because I know what I’m doing. Be kinder to yourself. I recognize your good intentions, and I love you. 

Be Ready for Good Things

You can be excited about all I have in store for you. The day is coming when you will reap benefit from what you’ve sewn, with confidence restored. I provide abundant healing of old wounds. Keep using the talents I have given you. If you haven’t used them lately, ask My Spirit to help you find an avenue to do so again. Invest thought time in re-building yourself up, making way for all that is to come. Be ready for GOOD things to occur.  Allow yourself the joy of anticipation. 

Step Into My Boat

Calming down can be as simple as taking a slow, conscious breath, breathing in My Light, and slowing down your racing thoughts. I equip You. I sustain you. You don’t suffer alone. Step into My boat. See how it is buoyant, seaworthy. Feel the bobble of gentle waves, and allow Me to paddle. Let Me be the captain of the ship. I am steering, – bringing you out into the waves or placing you back onto shore. Let Me transport you wherever you need to be at this time, in this present moment. Trust that I have the power to guide with your best interest in mind. Lay down your oars, sailor. I am guiding you home. 

See Yourself As I See You

Know that I am GOOD. Know that I also fill YOU with Good. Stop disdaining your human mistakes. It hurts Me when I hear you putting yourself down. Embrace yourself, flaws and all, seeing that the Good far outweighs the negative or any frailties. Try to see yourself as I see you. In My Light there is radiant love, appreciation, forgiveness, and complete acceptance. See My view of you, that you may be radiant with JOY. 

Picture Me Arranging the Details

I sustain life. Those who believe in Me ‘get this’. I restore a sense of what is right and Good, bringing about justice in due time. To be sustained, you must turn to Me daily – feeding your mind with My words and releasing your problems and anxiety into My hands. I can’t guide you fully if you aren’t trusting Me enough to let Me take over the problem-solving. This is simpler than you are making it by gripping so tightly to the wheel all by yourself. Ask for My help, and mentally hand over the situations and concerns that worry or scare you. Picture Me arranging the details as you focus on whatever I place before you instead. When I am back in charge of your life, you can rest easy.
