Give Others the Chance to Step Up

I have good plans in store. I am a trustworthy God with a greater design at work than what might be visible to your mind’s eye. I’ll help you step back when it’s time to listen and not respond. Watch as I orchestrate giving others the chance to step up to the plate. See how it’s not all up to you. I can take care of you in ways such as this when you relinquish your frantic attempts to be in control. Things don’t always have to go your way to be good. Sometimes a change in plans works out better. You are safe in My arms; trust Me to be there at all times.

Time to Trust Me Again

Nothing is impossible with Me. I will clear any obstacle out of the way and give you all the tools you need to make it happen. This should come as no surprise to you. You’ve seen Me at work in your life before. It is time to trust Me again. Make way. There is no stopping My way unless you simply choose not to follow it, but why would you not want to follow My lead? Fear is your stumbling block, not Mine. Be open. Listen. Trust the picture I place in your mind and heart. Come with Me on this journey, living a full life.

I Will Care for You Forever

Listen to Me: while not every day and moment may feel inspired, I have an important message for you. You can trust Me because I love you and I will care for you forever! There are no gaps in time when I’m not attending to you, or lapses as if I’ve gone away. Though you may mistakenly feel alone and floundering occasionally, I am fully present even then. Imagine how much more calm and confidently you would handle difficulties if you were only aware of My loving Presence supporting and guiding you at all times. It is difficult to keep that kind of awareness up 100% of the time, so do what you can to remind yourself to look up, child. I am with you and for you, ALWAYS.

No Need To Be Defensive

You are tired. I need you to quiet your thoughts and listen to Me. It is time to replenish the well. Doing so will help your anger dissipate, too. There is no need to be on the defensive. Walk with Me. Bring Me into each encounter. Find that My Presence holds the stillness and calming you need. As you use My gentle eyes, you will be more compassionate and forgiving with others, recognizing that behind their aggression is fear and insecurity. I am watching and involved. My Goodness will permeate here.

Release the Pressure of What-Ifs

As you stop long enough to truly listen for Me, My Grace sweeps in like the rush of fresh air when you crack open a window. The heat of tension and stress escapes out a little at the same time. I aim to soothe you as much as to guide you. I call you to peace. Find balance by slowing your pace and accepting today as it is. Release the pressure of “what-ifs” and “how to’s”, aiming to be present in the moment and trusting My work in your life. Take one thing at a time and crack that window open as often as you can remember to breathe. I am with you and there for you.

Laugh Out Loud

Today, listen to My sincere call to you to slow your pace. I ask you to release these fervent efforts to always be on top of ‘tackling the next thing’. Instead, enjoy the present moment. I want to see you laugh out loud, or listen joyfully and open your eyes in wonder, amazement, and appreciation of My beauty placed in your surroundings. Morning light dancing through the leaves, bird song, the smell of green apples or fresh laundry. The work will still get done in due time. Hear Me beckoning you in small moments as you proceed through your day, and at the end, take time to recall our vivid encounters. Relax, enjoying My Peaceful Presence with you.

The Most Loving Thing You Do Today

It’s not how you look or what you say that makes the biggest impression; it’s how you treat each other that makes all the difference. Showing patience, humility, and love is a big deal. Attend to My people. Look them in the eye and give them your time with attentive listening. This expresses value and worth. Ask questions; show interest. A nod of understanding can be the most loving thing you do today. See how this bounces back to you, as well, on this “day of love”. Be willing to reach out to someone beyond your comfort zone of familiarity if I nudge you. I’ll be loving on you the whole time, too. This is the way My Love works in the world. It’s as simple and powerful as that.
