Why do you stress out with mental replays of the day before or past interactions? What’s done is done. Regretting that you didn’t do more or say the right thing won’t help. Nestle into My reassuring arms, trusting Me to make something Good come out of everything. I suggest that when anxious thoughts creep up, train yourself to say, “What I did was enough. God will take care of the rest.” The hardest part is choosing to believe this very truth. Be consoled by the fact that you don’t have to fix everything. Offer Me your best and I will do whatever mending is needed.
I can pick up the pieces of your shattered heart. Let Me take all of the factors that caused it to break: hurt, disappointment, and self-blame. The hardest one to mend is the self-blame. You worry so much about every detail in retrospect, but I call you to focus FORWARD. When you spend so much time looking back with regret and shame, I cannot lead you ahead. Entrust Me with what was in the past, leaving it behind you. I place you with a clean slate in the present, – forgiven. Step into the day open to possibility and change. Redirect your thoughts when they try to slip back into habits of self-blame and regret, pointing your sights ahead instead to follow My aim for you.
I know the stress you have been under, dealing with constantly racing thoughts. Savor a moment with Me. Linger a while longer, resting in My gaze, and see how it changes you. I notice you lowering your eyes, afraid to acknowledge or accept My unconditional love for you, – but just try to hold My gaze again. The best way to heal your spirit is connecting with Me like this, – daily, hourly, in the moment. Whisper to yourself, “I am loved”, repeatedly. This ultimate truth can mend all brokenness and reduce the power of troubling thoughts. Let Me do a gentle takeover in your anxious mind.
