Be My Presence in a Hurting World

Hear Me tell you loud and clear that you are loved.  Your life and purpose are of great value to Me. Assist Me in combating darkness with compassion and healing. Strive to listen to the pain of others and be My Presence in a hurting world. I will stock your reserves with enough supply of tenderness and boldness on the shelves to meet the demand, and I’ll dance joyfully with you when the day’s good labor is done.  

Spread Joyfulness

Days like today are such a gift! I love it when you wake up with a grateful heart and notice how the break of dawn brings such mysteries of hope, Light, and color. Take in My dappled sunlight, ever on the move and calling you to hold onto a Spirit of Joy. Be willing to spread that joyfulness. Let Me use you to bring hope and goodness to others simply by keeping a twinkle in your eye and a grin on your face. You can lift the mood of a whole environment this way. 

Don’t Dread Getting Started

I call out “Come! Follow Me.” Allow excited or joyful anticipation of Good things to take over your heavy-laden mind. You don’t have to dread getting started because I’m already here. You can let go of the tendency to worry or fret. I will work it out somehow before all is done. Let’s move into today’s activities together. 

Carving a Way Through

Gradually you are coming into awareness of the life I have planned for you. Even with life’s setbacks, – which sometimes seem like an unending onslaught of problems, – I am with you, carving a way through. There is a bend in the road up ahead. Together, let’s walk on it. Let Me sling My arm over your shoulder as we approach it cheerfully. With Me, all things are possible…even living joyfully.

Timing

“Timing is everything”. My timing is mystical. I’m not random with My purpose, though. Sometimes I nudge you boldly into action, and other times I hold you back from change until I know you are ready. The events in your life may also be created for the benefit of OTHERS, not necessarily your own. Take joy in trusting My divine crafting of your life events. Try not to disdain your circumstances. I know what I am doing, and there will be benefit for you in due time. 

The Great Healer

I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest. 

Let’s Head Into the Unknown

Your mind is foggy and weighed down. Picture Me instead. Focus your thoughts on an image of Me standing lovingly in front of you, inviting you in to the day as I put my arm around your shoulder and guide you through each doorway.  You have no idea what’s in store, but I do. Let’s head into the unknown together with peaceful and even joyful anticipation of all we will encounter. 

Mapped Out a Course

I have mapped out a course uniquely designed for you. It’s a topographical map, with bumps and ridges as well as patches of smooth green. I am with you in all of it -climbing the heights and crossing the valleys. Try viewing it all as beautiful, not arduous or “too hard”. As your personal trail Guide, we will take steps in a doable pace. Follow Me with whole-hearted trust and inquisitiveness for what is around the corner. Envision Goodness unfolding all the way. 

Food for Thought

I give you lots of food for thought.  Sometimes you rush through My word like a fast-food meal in the drive-through. Instead, try taking your time as with a sit-down meal, appreciating each bite and ingesting it until it nourishes you.  My word is the lamp to light your way. Come to My banquet with a grateful heart, ready to take it all in and become truly satisfied and full. Let Me reassure you, fulfilling every need so that you can find joy and peace. 

Attending to Your Heart’s Desire

Speak to Me of your heart’s desire. You are of great value to Me, and what you want is important to Me. I am a loving God who cares about your happiness, too. You don’t have to serve to a point of depletion or resentment. Come to Me and find rest, returning to a place of joy again. Let Me help you find your way there. I love you more than enough to attend to your deepest longing. Seek Me; trust Me. Become even more aware of My love for you.
