Endurance and Expansiveness

I have called you by name. It is My job to take care of the others that you are worried about, not all yours. Remember that My plans are for your welfare, not dismay. For now, endurance and expansiveness are words for you to concentrate on. You have been gifted with strength and stamina, which will help when it comes time to move forward. Expand your view and open yourself to possibility. When courage and bravery are needed to take steps in a new direction, you will know. Don’t forget that I love you, and I don’t want or expect everything to be so hard for you all the time. Joy will return. There is time enough for everything, though, so just concentrate on appreciating the day before you.

Permission to Enjoy

Give yourself permission to enjoy things. There is no need to feel guilty or undeserving when good things come your way. I want you to experience joy and happiness and a life of ease, even though all of life will not be like this. Problems, losses, and challenges inevitably cycle through, but I still want you to be happy. Look for the gifts I place at your fingertips and give a nod of thanks to Me, your loving God, who provides all that you need and abundantly more than you could ever imagine or ask for.

Color Placed All Around You

Be open to seeing My color I placed all around you today. Look for it. Take time to notice and appreciate it. It’s My way of reaching you to reassure you that you are loved and My help is always present and available to you. You are never alone or unworthy. Brush that anxiety away by choosing to see color and hope in its place.

You Are My Masterpiece

You are My masterpiece! How I’ve loved painting, sculpting, and rearranging you into a beautiful image. Do you recognize the beauty in you? How I would love to see you walking confidently today. Can you imagine the possibilities if you saw yourself as fully acceptable, accepted, richly blessed, and basking in grace? If only you would allow yourself to trust this truth using a simple act of breathing, “I choose to believe”. You can do this! It’s not egotistical to choose self-acceptance when viewing through the lens of My eye. I want goodness to surround you, and I desire for you to receive My love for you. Say yes! Say thank you. Choose to believe; that’s all I ask.

Steeped in Gratitude

It’s A-okay to receive the blessings I give you without feeling guilty, unworthy, or “too privileged”. I enjoy giving abundantly and freely. You are good at not taking things for granted. I love how appreciative you are when My comforts bring delight to you and your household. Stay Steeped in gratitude and combine it with trusting your inherent worthiness. I don’t want to hold back or dole out in small increments. Let Me lavish you. That’s how My Love works in this life. I know that in return you will be generous with others, as well.

To Love, Honor, and Cherish

This day calls for reverence. To revere Me is to love, honor, and cherish our relationship. When you can acknowledge My sovereign might over all the earth, I can fill you with a sense of awe. Take delight in My Goodness and My reign over you, allowing Me to alleviate all that worry or fear of unworthiness. Let Me show the abundance of goods and opportunities ahead, helping you anticipate joy and gratitude for many blessings.

Push the Pause Button

When you sit with Me, pushing the pause button on the rest of the day, it’s easier to experience how calming My Presence can be. Take the effort to pause, making the time to rest in My Light and comfort long enough to reassure you. No matter what lies ahead in this day or the next, you don’t have to live frantically driven by anxiety anymore. You can live cupped in the palm of My hands, steadying you and bracing you for the things you face. Gratitude will flow easily from this. No matter what, I’ll be there, giving exactly enough comfort and strength to accept and bear what is. 

Prayerful Exercise

Just as your body needs exercise to stay well, so does your mind and Spirit. Devoting time for prayerful exercise, working on being calm and building muscles of trust in Me daily, will do much for your wellness. Watch your attitude match your capability as you head into the day, facing the unknown with complete trust that I will equip and sustain you. I supply just enough of what you need to get through your day. I am a reliable God, and I won’t be stingy or absent when it comes to meeting your needs. Make your prayer requests known to Me and exercise trust and gratitude in the fact that I hear and attend to your every need. 

Conversation With Me

Think about Me today so that I can help you with whatever gives you anxiety or frustration. Make it part of your day to say hello to Me. Maybe mention, “Thank you”. Feel free to ask, “Did you notice____?” or “Would you like me to ____?” You fill in the blank in this intimate conversation with Me. Make ours a friendship you can’t wait to share each moment with or each decision made together. I can’t wait to spend the day with you! Let’s chat often, bringing awareness of My company and attentive love ever-so-alive for you. 

Everything That Is Essential

Some days it’s hard to find direction with the way your mind spins with mini panic attacks: “Don’t forget ____!” “Make sure you ____!”  It’s at these times when you most need Me but can hardly hear My voice over the din of to-do’s. Stop and recognize that I will equip you, and everything that is essential will get done.  Thank Me for My companionship. Recognize your neediness and ask for My help. Only then can I step in to effectively provide you with peace. Remember Who is in charge and Who you belong to. Not everything will get done today, but that’s okay. I’ll still love you and help you see what matters most.
