When you are sad or anxious, I am fully present. I don’t wait for you to be struggling in order to come near, though. The truth is, I am always fully present and attentive to you. That may be hard to wrap your head around when you are caught up in worries or stress. Be gentler on yourself. I don’t mind attending to your needs. Take a break from sadness, worry, and fear, and rest in My safe arms for a while. Let Me nurture you back to confidence. Everything will work its way out in due time.

When others let you down or don’t give efforts to share the load the way you’d like, turn to Me. Ask for My help with shrugging off the offense. Consider that I will be your partner in getting things done, even if others aren’t helping the way you’d prefer. I can make any load more bearable. I may even introduce a new helper to involve. Release your anger and criticism, and open yourself to My change in plans. I love you and will always be there for you, reliably helping even when others disappoint.

Don’t underestimate My ability or power to heal. I change circumstances and move mountains of pride and hurt. Give Me the power to change your heart and mind. Relinquish your attempts to control situations or people, submitting to My will and My ways for you. Picture Me making things better when you hand your worries and frustrations over to Me. I am in your corner, and I want Good things in your life. You can trust Me.

Saving Grace: these are words to meditate on. My Grace saves. My Grace has enough supply to rescue you and those you care about from any of their troubles. Your job is not always to fix problems. Consider this: your job may be to call upon My Grace, or to direct others to do so. In My Grace there is enough wisdom, stamina, and peace for all. Do you know My Grace? Have you sought it out lately? I love to give it freely; you merely have to step up to the plate and ask for it to be served. I am a generous God. People mistakenly think I am stingy when it comes to helping when they are in the middle of their troubles, but this is completely wrong. It is in times of trouble that My Grace pours out in gallons, washing over the whole scene and bathing those in need.

I have told you this before, but it bears repeating: lean on Me. When you are weak, confused, worried, or angry, – lean on the sturdiness of My cross that bears all things. Wrap your arms and your mind tightly around its base when the winds of adversity blow at gale-force. I am steady, sturdy, and strong. Nothing can bend or break Me or you as we work together, in bonded union against the hard stuff of life. When you are holding on to this solid truth, knowing I am with and for you and I will never abandon you, you will be protected from the blustery forces trying to tell you otherwise.
Remember Me today. Like an old friend, a comforting song, a favorite article of clothing, recall how I soothe you. Put Me on. Listen to the music of your heart. Trust that I am with you, – daily, hourly, – pleasantly accompanying you. As I sit by your side with each task you attend to, remember Me and call upon Me when you need a hand thinking things through. I’m here for you.
You know the sting of pain and hurt. You’ve seen deep disappointment and frustration, especially lately. I am with you in all of it, but that can sound like a hollow phrase. Listen to it again, picturing Me right in front of you and speaking these words with the truest compassion and most sincere commitment possible on My Glorious face: “I am with you in ALL of it!” Not just in bits and pieces or here and there. I was with you back then, I’m with you now, and I”ll be with you when the next thing comes along. Look to Me for help and comfort. I am already there, offering My hand for your peace of mind.
I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty.
You will have the strength for what you need to do, but don’t neglect your need for rest, also. Down time is just as important as accomplishing tasks. Don’t overwork yourself. So many times I watch you striving so hard for goals which I have not set for you. I design your days with bits and pieces of a much bigger picture. Although you cannot envision that as fully as I do, I simply ask you to listen to My call and trust My guidance along the way. I will not push more upon you than you can reasonably carry. Examine your plans to see what is designed by Me vs. what is designed by the world. Reduce or eliminate tasks that bury you with needless stress, worry, or anxiety. I don’t want to exhaust your reserves. Trust that I will help you carry that which is truly important, then rest accordingly when the day is done.
I know you are feeling daunted by the things I am asking of you. Whether it’s staying put and making the best of your present circumstances or moving forward and asking you to be open to change, I AM WITH YOU ALL THE WAY! I won’t drop the ball or make you figure things out blindly on your own. Look for ways I am working things out: random offers to help you, pinches of funding to make ends meet. Be Persistent. Things will work out in due time and in the end, even if they seem impossible right now. Look back for evidence of this, and be reminded of my Goodness coming through. I’ll put the pieces together with and for you.
