Handling Disagreements

In this world there will always be disagreements. Sometimes the wayfinding isn’t clear-cut. It’s okay to have your own opinions, but it’s also important to seek to understand others. Hear them out, and if necessary, agree to disagree. You can share your views diplomatically when they are tempered by My Grace. Ask for My help to ‘keep your cool’, and start every comment by considering the most loving and compassionate intention you can back it up with. I will give you the words to say and equip you with the way to phrase it. Aim to treat all with dignity and respect. Trust Me to help.

The Driver’s Seat

My desire is to give you true peace of mind. Today, try pulling back if you find yourself moving into an anxious driver’s seat. Slide over to the passenger side and hand Me the keys to take you where you need to go. I will help navigate the turns, and I know which speed is needed for each length of the road. Breathe easier with Me in the driver’s seat and you safely buckled in by My loving hand. I won’t steer you wrong.

Your Presence is an Extension of Me

You’ll have what it takes to address the needs of the day. I place you among My people with a directive to show love, hope, and encouragement by sitting attentively with others, validating their experiences, pain, or discouragement. It won’t necessarily be up to you to fix with the right words, though. Just be comfortable pausing to listen without responding at times. Your calm, loving presence will be enough and can be an extension of Me, showing how much you care in a way that words aren’t always needed. I’ll help you figure out what to say and when to say it when you pause to acknowledge My healing ways and ask for guidance. I am with you all, always.

A Different Route

Wherever you go, I will go. Your life is full of your own choices. No matter what, I will never abandon you. As you choose your path for today, consider stopping to ask Me for directions. I may set you on a different route than you had planned, so be open to that. My route may take you to new and unexpected places. These may take a little extra work on your part, but I’ll equip you for it all. The choice of direction is always yours, but I will be with you wherever you go.

The Ultimate Fulfillment

I am the ultimate fulfillment. So often people try to find fulfillment in things like possessions, recognition, food, drink, travel, sex, beauty, sports, or…you name it. What they are really looking for is a deep, inward sense of peace and wholeness. What do you value? If you set your sights on things other than knowing Me, being in My Presence, and bringing My love to the world, you will lack in feeling fulfilled. I desire to give you that kind of peace. It’s a perfect fit and true union when we are aligned like this. When things of this world distract you, stress you out, or pull you in all directions, turn your gaze toward Me. Seek Me and you will find peace.

Hard to Get Going

Some days are just plain hard to get going. I recognize that. No matter how much you feel weighed down, though, I am with you to help jump-start your day. I carry the heaviest burdens so you don’t have to strain yourself. Instead of taking on a “woe is me” attitude, picture Me smiling and saying, “I’ll take care of that.” Hand over your hardest or most mundane tasks to Me and move on to something else. See how this act of trust in Me improves your energy and shifts your focus. Before you know it, the day will have passed and things will have gotten done in satisfying ways. Partner with Me like this all day and see joy being renewed in your heart.

The Loving Response

The world wants to fill the space in your head with accusations, criticisms, and complaints. These hurt your heart. I disdain evil, corruption, and hurtful things. Yet I always find a way to respond with love, forgiveness, and hope for a better future where my children also choose to love instead of cause or reciprocate hurt. If you are faced with a situation that wrestles with your head or heart, seek My voice guiding you to the most loving response. Even if you don’t agree with the person or situation, choose to treat them with dignity. You will find that peace reigns when you do this. I will bless you with that kind of distancing and peace. Rise above. Do good unto others. Seek My kingdom first, knowing that My Grace is sufficient to help you with all of these things.

Calm Reassurance

My hand continues to be working in, before, and behind you, molding you to My design. Hear My voice offering calm reassurance. I AM WITH YOU…I am with you. Breathe in this truth, absorbing its healing power. You are never alone in anything you must face today and always. Today I ask you to not feel small. Instead of being anxious or worried, picture yourself as big, confident, and filled with My strength to accomplish all that is asked of you, one thing at a time. In a world of multi-tasking, doing one thing at a time is actually key to staying focused and calm. Remember that My hand is cupped around yours. Glance toward Me with each task we pick up to handle together. Celebrate our companionship as the day unfolds and eventually draws to completion. My joy is yours.

Further Than You Planned For

I am whispering to you. So often My lambs do not hear My voice but it is there, beckoning them to safer ground and providing affection, encouragement, and understanding. Sometimes that safer ground is higher ground, – one that calls you to make harder steps or pushes you further than you planned for, – but it is always worth the effort. The sights and peacefulness this higher ground brings is far more satisfying than the immediate, fleeting pleasures that tug at you and try to distract or misguide you along the way. My way is steady and sure. Take the high ground today at all costs. When the steps seem steep, challenging, or unsteady, I will take your elbow. I never let go of you. Join Me in the direction I prefer and have designed for you. Even when My lambs stray off the intended path, My hand is outstretched and waiting to guide them home.

Find Balance and Direction

Listen to the truths surfacing in your heart. I am calling you to pay attention to true self-care, which involves finding balance between activity and stillness. Already you are seeing the  benefits of this quiet time spent with Me. Simplify your life. Take time to reflect on what is most important to you vs. how you are spending your time. I speak to you on a gut-level like that. Honoring Me doesn’t mean overextending yourself, nor does it mean giving up what you enjoy. I designed you with likes and dislikes for a reason and a purpose. Ask Me to help you find balance and direction as you follow what gives you passion. That is My gift to you.
