Lean Into My Sturdy Frame When You’re Weak

You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

Take Each Task and Conversation Before Me

You are attending to many people and things right now. It’s easy to forget My sovereignty over life when you are so busy, – and perhaps misguidedly thinking “it’s all up to you” to handle so much. With discipline of your thoughts, you can learn to take each task and conversation before Me. Acknowledge My Goodness in all your ways so that My divine hand can guide your words and actions. Find a peace-filled day in this practice of the art of submission. I may have given you much to handle on My behalf, but never will I tip the scale of endurance beyond what I will equip you with to take it all on effectively.

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.

Find the Peaceful Common Ground

It can be hard being at odds with others. Having deep differences of opinion and judgment causes division sometimes. No matter what is going on in your relationships with others, I am always at your side, and at theirs. Keep this in mind: I live in all kinds of spaces. I know it is easy to feel offended when you’re put on the defensive by others. Instead of honing in on your differences, try finding the peaceful common ground where you can both walk in My perfect light. It might only be a sliver of brightness, but I assure you it is there. Look for it. I will meet you in that dimly lit place and help heal divides.

Give Sincerely

You are doing your part right where you are at this point in time, speaking words of encouragement to others. Affirm their worth and validate their experience with the compassionate heart I have instilled in you. No more or less than this is expected of you. Operating from a place of internal peace as supplied by Me will help you stay calm in the face of anything that comes before you. This is how I operate: nothing will be too hard for you to handle. It might not feel super big or impressive to you, but every little bit you give matters to Me. All I ask is this: give sincerely. The little things matter. You are needed and loved by Me.

Caring, not Worrying

There’s a difference between caring about things and worrying about them. I’ve designed you with personal preferences and abilities, with an intent for you to attend to things that matter to both of us. It’s okay to want good things and to value pieces of life that are precious to you, but stressing out about them and fretting over things that are not worth the investment of your energy or resources is not part of My plan. Excessive worry pulls you off track. Try releasing things that draw you away from the lifestyle of peace and joy I intended for you. Picture yourself living more at ease. Perhaps it is the things you think you most care about that you actually most need to let go of worrying about in order to find contentment.

Anticipating Good Things to Come

You get it. You know how having a grateful mind leads to a more joyful spirit. I want your happiness and to see you living a life not only of peace, but also filled with hope – anticipating good things to come. Picture it! Take whatever vision I lay on your heart or imagination and try approaching life as if it is a given that these good things are going to occur. Aim your sights on My powerful perspective. Nothing I desire for you is too small or too big to reach for and attain. Nothing.

Take Breaks From Thinking Too Much

Be wary of things that fill your mind with needless worry. Instead, take intentional breaks from thinking too much. Get up, soak in the views I place in your presence. Notice the beauty, the stillness, and color or sounds. Focus on whatever seems to catch your eye, and acknowledge My companionship in whatever you experience. Remind yourself that you are Mine. In momentary breaks like this I will bless you with the peace of mind you crave.

Rest for Your Body, Soul and Mind

You require more rest and balance. For some people this comes naturally and easily, but others like you have to work hard to establish boundaries and carve out time for rest. It may mean setting boundaries with others or boundaries against your relentless self that is so driven to accomplishment and perfection. Ask Me what is most needed today, and acknowledge the places you are vulnerable. I am not a harsh task-master driving you until you are weary in your bones. Don’t let exhaustion overcome you. Find rest for your body, soul and mind with My help. Remember that My first call invites you to peace.

Driven with Excessive Responsibility

I call you to attend to certain tasks today, but this is never meant to be heard as a hard task-master. I call out with cries of love for you! How much I desire for you to first and foremost hear My bid for your loving gaze in return. You are so hard on yourself, – so driven with excessive responsibility for many things. As you learn to rely on me, your Maker and the great artist designing your life, you begin to comprehend how My capacity is greater than your needs. Turn to Me and find me Present at all times, and lean on Me to discover the strength and sustenance you need to complete all that is on your plate. Come away with My peace and joy ignited in your spirit.
