I have much to teach you about finding peace and comfort. Life certainly causes all sorts of pain: emotionally, physically, socially. The thing about My peace, though, is it is available even in the midst of really hard things. When life’s circumstances hurt or scare you, draw in to hear My voice. I love you and I am with you. Healing can and will come. Inhale confidence and exhale doubt. Find My Peace through awareness of My constant loving Presence between each breath.

We are not strangers. I am intimately familiar with you, and I know your every thought, wish, and ache. You know Me, too. Deep inside, you know to trust Me and you strive to be more like Me. Talk to Me from that place of deep familiarity today. Bring Me into your decisions, actions, and conversations. Look at Me when things get resolved or when they turn out well. Acknowledge that I am a part of all Good things. Trust Me even with the tensions, hurts, and disappointments, for I am with you as you experience them. I am that familiar God who truly cares and heals.

I am familiar with all the places you hurt and all the things that stir up your anxiety. Come to Me anyway, even though things don’t feel great all the time. Come to Me and find that just for a moment, perhaps, all feels well and manageable. Allow that glimmer of hope to squeak through the cracks of those hard, cold walls of pain or fear. Whisper this truth: I am with you in all things. Nothing will be too much to bear. Let Me comfort you with an attentive reassurance that you are never, ever alone in your suffering.

You are doing your best. I see that. I know how the words of others have wounded your pride, though. I need you to move on. Don’t let these slights and mishaps shape who you are. I can even help you muster up being humble and kind toward them. Your forgiving stance will speak to others in unseen ways. Don’t fall prey to thinking you have to punish others. Instead, be the kind of person who can make this hurt be healed. I will help you be stronger as a result.

Be an observer today. Take notice of others, your surroundings and also of yourself. Notice your physical reactions, – aches, pains, and thoughts, – without judging them as “good” or “bad”. As you take stock of things, I will help you determine what needs action and what to attend to first. The rest can wait. I want your wellness as much as you do. By being observant, accepting, and kind toward yourself it will help you do so with others, as well. I need you in this day, and you need Me to help figure out what to do with whatever is in front of you. Let’s enter it hand in hand.

Nothing goes to waste with Me. I take all of your experiences, hurts, and disappointments and piece every bit of them together into something new that will bring Goodness back into the world. Each sliver and fragment are put to use. You may be better able to relate well to others who are hurting or disappointed now because of what you’ve been through. Others can be more present and uniquely available to you when you face challenges or hard times because of their own past. Lean into Me with trust and find the spectacular Light of Goodness that bends through My reworked mosaic of repair.

BE LOVING. It’s that simple! Although I get it, – it’s not always easy to do, – especially when your feelings have been hurt. Ask for My help to soften your heart toward those who have offended you or let you down. I can heal all sorts of wounds – both physical and emotional. Every day you look more radiant to Me as you practice learning to love deeply. Forgiving and moving on, offering grace to others, – these are all actions that stem from My heart of Love, which is embedded in you. Trust your gut on when to use boundaries or when to ease up and let down your guard. I will help you determine which thing to do so that glimpses of My kindness can be seen in the world. You are My vessel for love.

Take delight in the tasks before you today, one at a time. Picture that I’ve laid out a “good” day for you, with things you like to do and can feel a sense of accomplishment in. I desire your joy, not drudgery. I prefer seeing your enthusiasm and optimism after so many years of sadness, anger, anxiety, and hurt. Remember, I am a loving God, continually making things new. I gather goodness out of the dust and ashes. Your encouraging spirit serves you and others well. Take heart, for I am truly with you and the desires of My heart are not different than your own. Don’t let fear or anxious anticipation of worst-case-scenarios grip you. Keep your grasp on My right hand as we move forward.

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.

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.
