You know how to be loving. Some days it takes a lot of energy to muster up “politeness”, though. It can be challenging to show kindness and respect to others who blindly offend. It helps to try and recognize that everyone deserves dignity in My eyes. You do; they do, too. The Good news is that you don’t have to be able to do this all on your own. Ask for My Grace and My Spirit to help you – giving you restraint and/or words when the time comes to interact. Remember, I will be with you, mediating the conversation. Trust that I love you no matter what.
See the calm; picture it in your mind. Feel the calm knocking ever so gently. Open the door and greet it, allowing calmness to come in and fill every space in your heart and home. Be the calm; breathe it in and choose to live with it ruling your pace, your mind, and your actions. It’s not ridiculous to try this and believe in My capacity to bring you My Peace. I make all things possible. With the help of My Grace, you can be peace-filled. I love you and I want this for you.
My call to everyone is to be inclusive. This may mean inviting conversation or even flashing a smile of forgiveness to those who have wronged you. Little movements like that go a long way in repairing and enhancing My kingdom. Each time you let go of a small slight and choose to move forward instead of taking it personally, you will find peace. Through My Grace, you can opt to forgive and include. You are acting on My behalf when you treat all as welcome at My table.
I have so much in store for you! My yoke is meant to be easy, – easier than you are making it right now. Let Me carry the heaviest part while you simply walk beside Me. I know how your concerns weigh you down. Look to Me with pleading eyes and find how much Mercy, Love, and Grace I’ve been pouring on you all along. This will help you rest more assured that a time of peace is coming. Trust that I will help work it all out.
Take it slow today – with deliberate focus on one task, one conversation, one thing at a time. If you are having trouble prioritizing, write it all down and ask Me to look over the list with you. I’ll help you get started and it will flow much easier when you remember this is not all up to you. Sit with Me in quiet awareness of My Presence. Allow My grace to refocus, replenish, and refresh you. Entrust Me with your whole life and your whole list. I am yours, and you are Mine.
Why are you so down on yourself? Don’t you know My mighty love for you yet? You are CHERISHED by Me. Pluck your head up and let Me tilt your chin toward My gaze. It is not a look of consternation that I give to you. Behold My utter love – unconditional! – for you. Stop placing so much demand on yourself to perform and accomplish all the time. You need more time standing in front of Me while you learn to recognize the truth. Shed the habits of self-blame and self-criticism. Replace them with a new habit of intentionally receiving My ultimate Grace, Love, and forgiveness. You are my lovable child no matter what.
Things that you are not even aware of are moving in your life. You can walk the straight and narrow in My footsteps while I orchestrate the outcomes, changing things before, beside and behind you. Keep your eyes fixed on Me without worrying about everything else. I know what I’m doing. Let Me be the agent of change instead of you trying to plan for or fix everything on your own. Concentrate on simple tasks one step at a time today. I’ll be busy with the rest, taking careful charge. Go in peace, loving others well and attending to that which I place in front of you today.
I know you like your alone time. I also bring you close to others for a reason. While I am always present and available to you, there are times when you need human interaction. Be divinely inspired to reach out to others today. Make yourself vulnerable enough to trust being on the receiving end of those encounters, too. You don’t have to hide behind that wall of fear or distrust any longer. I will always keep you safe. I am a God who is both “with you” and “with one another.” Find Me present in the mixture of these meetings with others.
Waiting is hard! I see your hurt, but you do not wait alone. Trust in the work of My capable right hand. I cradle you in My other arm while the right hand works on the hearts of others. You can work on forgiving them in advance so that when the time comes, you will be ready to show My love. I am already holding all of your pain. Take comfort in knowing My tender compassion for you is real. Breathe in My all-encompassing Grace, mending that which was once broken. You are bound tightly to Me now; be strengthened and comforted in this unshakable truth.
Keep doing what you’re doing right now: spending time listening to Me. I do speak in ways that are understandable and clear when you stop your frantic pace long enough to hear. I call you to slow down and pause frequently. Breathe in this reminder and truth: I am with you! Always. When I said to you, “My peace I give to you”, I meant it. Freely lavished when you take time to open your hands. Sit with Me and see how awareness of My Presence calms you down. My Love and Grace can melt away the worries.
