Be My Presence in a Hurting World

Hear Me tell you loud and clear that you are loved.  Your life and purpose are of great value to Me. Assist Me in combating darkness with compassion and healing. Strive to listen to the pain of others and be My Presence in a hurting world. I will stock your reserves with enough supply of tenderness and boldness on the shelves to meet the demand, and I’ll dance joyfully with you when the day’s good labor is done.  

Justice and Healing

Let Me be perfectly clear: no act of harm or injustice done to you goes unnoticed by Me. Just because I call you to love and forgive does not mean I tolerate or excuse injustice. It angers and pains Me more than you can imagine. I weep and cry out and gnash My teeth right alongside you over hurtful acts. Do not be ashamed about voicing what has happened. The world needs to understand wrong from right. I will take care of the healing and the retribution from here. Come into My protective arms now. Just lean in and be comforted. 

I Am Your Protector and Guide

Be gentle on yourself. Put caution tape around your fragile, vulnerable heart. When others can’t see or don’t want to know what you’ve been through, I see and I know. It’s okay to keep a safe distance, praying for those who aren’t treating you well right now. I can change these circumstances in due time. Until that happens, know that I am your Protector and Guide. You can concentrate on today while My hand is at work in you and in them.

What Hope Looks Like

Come to Me in the quiet of the morning and be fed small bites of comfort. I am tenderly taking care of you, healing your hurts and wounds. Don’t get stuck in a pity party for yourself. That doesn’t help, and it fogs up the window showing how clearly I am working in your life. Instead, go to the window and look out. Find the dawn again, with hope on the horizon because I am with you. I sustain; I heal. I need you to demonstrate what hope looks like to others. Hope assures you that I will bring Good out of every circumstance and trial.

Vulnerable Inside; Don’t Lose Hope

I am the Great Healer. Trust Me with your deepest wounds – the kind that tear at your heart and make you feel so vulnerable inside. I see all things and do understand your pain – even though you doubt My love and compassion for you because this wound still exists. Even in your darkest hour, I am with you. I will not let you fall into a pit of despair. Take that hurt and pain plus any surrounding emotion (shame, fear, anger, rage, sadness – whatever the case may be) and lay it all at My feet. Don’t leave any parts to cling to because that would only serve to continue to separate yourself from Me. I know that placing it at My feet doesn’t cause all pain to disperse immediately. Still, by doing so you open yourself to receive My love for you today, in the deepest spots. Do not lose hope. 

Don’t Tear Yourself Apart

I want you to come bold-faced before Me, ready to hear all I have to say. Face Me and find that NOTHING can take away My love for you: no opinions from others, no little or big mistakes. So much of the tension and stress you live under is self-imposed and misguided. Allow My love for you to be ALL-ENCOMPASSING. Don’t give in to the temptation to tear yourself apart (again). You are just as worthy of My love and blessings as anyone else. Let Me attend to you, repairing your damaged spirit with My gentle attentiveness. I have already picked up the broken pieces; nothing has been left behind. Healing will come. 

Breathe In Light; Exhale Hurt

In whatever you encounter today, focus on My love for you. With every bite of food, every breeze that brushes your face, every friendly greeting from others, be reminded that I love you fully and completely, just as you are. When negative self-talk or assumptions try to take over and influence you, consciously push those thoughts aside. Breathe in trust; exhale hurt. Make room for My love to enfold and inhabit you. I can heal and restore you with light and Goodness as you concentrate on My love calming your nerves and soothing your mind.  

I Am the Fixer

I will be with and for you, even when others are not. I call you to a place of peace, regardless of other’s support or lack thereof. Stop trying to figure out how to make them improve or “get it”. Hand that part over to Me, for I am the ultimate “fixer”. You can be more comfortable in your own shoes, drawing confidence from My Love so firmly imbedded within you. Nothing -no person or circumstance – needs to shake that inner peace. I will help overcome ALL of your woundedness. Let Me be the One who mends.

Take a Break from Obsessing

Whatever is burdening you, I urge you to set it down. Take a break from obsessing about it or trying to fix it. Put it next to you on the table and come sit with Me for a bit, instead. Relax in My Presence, – experiencing a return of calm and peacefulness. Even if this is only momentary before you scramble to pick it all back up, remember that you can take a break from fretting as often as you need to. I will be waiting, each time. 

Lighten Up on Self-Criticism

Think of the word “softness” today. You can tread lightly wherever you walk, – not driven to impose on others but being gently present instead. I am not hard on you, but you often are on yourself. It hurts when Me when you do that and I ache for you to show more self-compassion, too. Try going softly today – especially lightening up on the self-criticism. You are loved fully by Me, exactly as you are.
