Not Awfulizing Emotions

There are ebbs and tides of difficult emotions that naturally come and go in this life, You can endure them all reasonably well as you lean into My companionship. I face all of these with you, pointing out when you are overreacting or assuming too much responsibility. Instead of chastising yourself or trying desperately to control things that distress you, pick them up and hold them to My Light. Together, let’s observe what is going on and gently set it down, not succumbing to awfulizing emotions or letting fear of the unknown overwhelm you. I will always help you bear what is. Breathe in trust of My helping hand.

How I’ve Helped You

You need not be timid about acknowledging My hand in your life to others. Speak often of Me and how I’ve helped you. Others hunger for this, and long for the awareness you have of My love for ALL. Having faith is a good thing! Don’t worry so much about what others will think of you, or how what you share may be interpreted or misinterpreted. I’l take care of the outcomes and impact. Just be honest, transparent, and authentic. Your words will speak volumes to many. I need your voice to help carry My hope into the world.

Elect to Rise Above

All people are carrying some measure of pain. Emotionally, physically, spiritually, everyone has been hurt or injured somewhere along the line. Some choose to live with intense focus on the discomfort or injustice of it all. Being stuck in the mire isn’t good long-term. Others elect to rise above it, looking for insights into how this can make them more compassionate or how it makes them grow stronger. Be one of those resilient ones today who acknowledges and validates the pain but also moves on. Be the one expressing hope and encouragement for better days. In other words, be My Light and speak My truth. I extend opportunities for peace to all.

Things Can, Do, and Will Work Out

You fret about a lot of unnecessary things, picturing the worst-case scenario and bracing anxiously for the unknown.  I call you to address this habit and intentionally change your thought process. When you catch yourself building worries, – STOP. Remind yourself that I am a loving God who is taking care of you and has Good plans in store. Remind yourself you are loved, loving, and capable, and then say, “I trust you Lord. Things will work out in the end. They have before and they will again, because you are caring for Me and my situation.” Things can, do, and will work out. Choose to believe, and allow yourself to live life with greater ease and happiness.

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.

When the View Appears Bleak

The road recently has felt arduous. No matter how difficult, though, I have walked it with you. Side by side, I am carrying the roughest and most grueling parts. I know it’s hard to feel joy when the days are dark and the view appears bleak. It’s not, though. All I can do is reassure you that hope is alive and well, and there is reason to believe that lighter days are in store for you and for those you love. Cling to Me today. Hold tight, and don’t give in to discouragement. You deserve happiness and will find it yet again.

Where the Wind Blows

You know not where the wind blows, but I do. You don’t need to worry about that. Stride into today letting just enough breeze carry you to the destination arranged for these next 24 hours only. Resist the tendency to think ahead, and just relax into the day,  approaching it with curiosity and hopeful intrigue. You don’t need to map everything out in order to feel happy. See how not worrying about all the details and just letting life unfold enlivens your spirit.

You Are Loved, Well, and Needed

Oh, My tender-hearted one. I see and hear your hidden self-reproach. Even though others have no idea how hard you are on yourself, I see it and hear it. Sit with Me a while and feel My reassuring arm of protection and comfort around your shoulders. Let’s get back at it today, shaking the dust of yesterday from your feet. Brush off the discouragement and rid yourself of the mean things you’ve told yourself. You don’t need that negativity taking up space in your head, – nor do I want that for you. Replace it with My reassurance that you are loved, you are well, and you are needed. Repeat this mantra throughout the day, because it is My truth for you, and My truth is all that matters.

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.

Would You Believe Me?

What if I were to tell you, “All is well”. Would you believe Me? What if I said, “I’m taking care of everything.” Would you trust Me? Why do you live in such doubt and fear, panicking that everything is about to fall apart just around the corner? I tell you sternly and lovingly, stop your thoughts from going into panic and planning mode. I know it is uncomfortable having to blindly trust Me on all matters, but I do have a plan and a destination for you today, tomorrow and into the future. Watch and wait with quiet trust and peaceful anticipation. I’ve always come through, carrying you through hard times. Do not fear change if that is what is needed. All things will come to Light when they are due.
