Peace and Joy Can Go Together

I am working things out for you, kneading out the sore spots. Trust Me, and look for ways I send others to help. Being “contemplative” does not have to mean being sorrowful all the time. Peace and joy can go together, and are actually a very nice pairing available even when you’ve been hurting. Practice detaching from your surroundings and moving into a peaceful and observant mode, allowing the stream of interaction and movement to flow in whatever direction I guide. You will remain intact during the process, I assure you.

Releasing Disappointment and Anger

It is better to acknowledge your disappointment and anger, thereby allowing it to be loosened and released quickly. Holding those feelings in or trying to deny them is never healthy. You know that you don’t need to remain under the grip of fleeting feelings like that, because I am a trustworthy God who is ever-present in times of trouble and beyond. Lean into Me when the driving force of emotional winds are strong. I will keep you upright and level-headed, leading you to the stillness outside of its path.

When Others Let You Down

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.

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.

Waves of Anxiety or Hurt

Despite the ebbs and tides of your emotions, I am the Constant in your life. Look to Me for safety, shelter, and calming. If a wave of anxiety or hurt comes over you, remember that the tide will surely pull it back out to sea again, – away from you. It will not stay in place for long. Look for what is left for you to appreciate and observe in the tide pools. See new discoveries about yourself that hold true even after the worries of life recede. You’ll find playfulness, color, and new life darting about with joyful surprises in store.

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.

If I Close a Door

If you are challenged by disappointment, hurt feelings or discouragement, turn to Me for comfort. Do not retaliate when these things happen. If I close a door or you encounter hardships, consider that I may merely be nudging you in a new direction. I never place hurt in someone’s life, though. Don’t attribute things that cause pain to being derived by Me because I am not that kind of God. Instead, recognize that I accompany all when they are hurting or in trouble. I’ll walk with you, picking up the pieces and providing healing into a new design for good. Work on not taking offense. Instead, take steps of trust, knowing that you are ever so loved.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

Follow My Safe Lead

I am reaching for you, – standing right here, – facing you. Open your eyes and heart to greet Me. Say yes to My invitation allowing Me to console you like no other can. I know you’ve been hurt. I can’t protect you from all pain caused by others in this world, but I can lift you out of it. It may require walking away from hurtful situations. When it is time, I will make the move and signal your way through. Follow My lead. Hold on to the fact that I will never leave your side. With Me,  you are safe again.

Melt Away Old Habits

Like the flickering light of a candle, My Spirit is moving in you. I instill warmth and activity that is constantly at work, melting the effects of past hardships away. I give off Light with a pleasing aroma while dancing freely. Open yourself to what I need to melt down: old habits of worry, former offenses and hurts, rigid ways you’ve used to self-protect. Let Me soften them and burn away anything that gets in the way of My Light trying to shine through you. Come closer to the flame, excited about how I am reshaping you from the inside out.
