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.

Let Me Be Your Comforter

I see the tears that sting your eyes in private. It’s okay to cry in front of Me. It would be unreasonable to expect your life to be devoid of hurt or sorrow because real pain happens. When tears stem from grief or worry, let Me help with that. I will sit with you as long as you need until your breathing slows and your guard lets down. Let Me be your protector, comforter, and guide. You’ll never have to face anything alone. Lean into My loving Presence and know with confidence that I’ll help get you through.

Reassurance – At The Tipping Point

You have already done great things for Me. Others see your Light and are drawn closer to Me as a result. You give reassurance, inspiring others by how you handle adversity. I will not let you go so low as to not be able to get back up. I will never leave or forsake you. Stay strong, especially now. When you think you are at the tipping point, keep focused on My Presence and I will restore your footing. I will continue to supply you with all you need.

In Sickness and In Health

You are Mine – always, – in sickness and in health. Forevermore tied. I’m devoted to helping you recover from past hurts as well as working through present worries or ailments. I see your good intentions and I know your fears and roadblocks. You can entrust Me with both your history and your present concerns. Feel Me tugging at your heart, calling you to compassionate awareness of your need for wellness. I make precious gemstones out of rocks over time when you give way to My purpose and healing intentions for your life.

Hand Over All That Clenches You

I am able to help you take better care of yourself. You don’t have to live in constant overdrive, numbing out with food or cluttered activity. I offer Grace to wash over all your troubles and concerns. Once your mind is eased with My assistance, it frees you to make better choices on what fills your body, mind, and schedule. Come to Me. Relax your jaw and hand over all that clenches you. Breathe in My Light and reassurance that I will make the way for today clear to you. You can rely fully on Me.

How You Approach Things

I never leave you to handle things all by yourself. I can redeem past hurts & sorrows and help with current challenges, making Goodness happen, but you are still allowed the freedom to choose how you see and approach things. Consider bringing your perspective before Me for review. Allow Me to help sort things out and assist you with clearing your mind. As you become open to My loving, gentle guidance I will give you direction on how to handle whatever you are encountering. In choosing to push your momentary distress aside and trust Me instead, I’ll make way for a fresh outlook on the most helpful approach to your situation.

Standing Alongside You

Try your best to simply be aware of My partnership with you today. Instead of putting Me on a distant pillar as if I’m watching and waiting to catch you tripping up, work on a refreshed image of Me standing alongside you as your partner and friend. I’ll go anywhere with you, you know. I’ll also share in the load of work to be done. You can even enjoy My Presence and companionship, finding things that make us laugh together or noticing things that bring awe into our view. Let’s hang out today, enjoying life no matter what the day brings.

Have You Forgotten?

All things are possible with Me, your God. Have you forgotten that? Have you forgotten how much I enjoy surprising you? Haven’t you noticed the serendipitous moments that fall all around you? Take notice of them. I haven’t gone away. Goodness actually abounds, and rises above all. Remember to pay attention to the ways I am working all around you, always aiming for your wellness.  Remember in  faith that I have nothing but Good intentions to help you.

Uncomfortable Times

The world has many discomforts: physical pain, weather changes, emotional distress, financial worries, relationship strains, grief & loss…I know them all. Come to Me so I can soothe you. I am a loving God who can heal the slightest irritations to the deepest trauma wounds. Hang in there; healing can take a long time. Take heart and reach out to hands there to help sort it out and make things new. Even in uncomfortable times, I will help you endure and move forward. Reach for Me to steady you when the weight and winds make you off-kilter. My way is safe and secure.

Benefit Others Even in the Mundane

Let Me reach you in the mundane. If something you are working on seems dull and repetitive, try looking a little deeper at how you contribute to the benefit of others through these menial tasks. Every time you fold a load of laundry, wash a dish, pack a lunch, respond to an email…you do it for Me and for the good of all. See My purpose in the little things you do and take comfort knowing everything you do out of love MATTERS. It matters to Me and is therefore important for My world. You are valued and needed.
