Down Time

Today, pay attention to the gift of “down time”. I generously carve out pockets of time with fewer demands so that you can refocus and rejuvenate. It’s important to let go of the constant pressure to perform. I call you away from this anxious lifestyle to find better balance. Allow yourself to just “be”. Soak in what you see, hear, or taste in the moment. Stay with Me a while in this palace of peace and mindfulness. Observe how calming this is, and how much better you function when you take time out to be still, – even if just for a few moments each day.

Hopeful Plans For You

Whenever a new year arises, people tend to reflect on where they’ve been and possibilities for where they are going. Be cautious about getting caught up in old ruts where your tires spin in the mud of regret. Also watch out for fear-based projections about what is around the corner,  anticipating that things won’t turn out as you would like or will be too hard to manage. Neither of these things are true. I am a loving God with hopeful plans in store for you. I’ll carry you through hard times and open doors for Good things to arrive in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Choose to concentrate on living fully present in today, and hand Me your past and future. This is how you build new habits of peace of mind.

No Need to be Carrying Shame

Why are you still carrying around that shame inside your head? When I say you are forgiven, it is a done deal. There’s no need to keep going back and rehashing scenes in your head, beating yourself up over words or actions you now regret. Glance at them if you must, but only to learn what you want to aim to do differently in the future. Other than that, I call you to love yourself and accept the forgiveness and grace that’s already been awarded by Me. I want you to live a life of peace and self-acceptance, knowing that you are loved by Me and that is enough.

Designed to Live in Peace

I designed you to live in peace. Originally, that was easier to do, but as life piles on it is harder to practice. Peace is attainable, though, – every day. It takes  a choice to defy the negative self-talk when it slithers in, trying to deceive you. Once you give it a hard “no”, turn to My reassurance and open yourself to receiving whatever I deem as possible. You know Me and My ways: always aiming at Goodness and Love. Let Me calm your aching soul today and give you the freedom to experience My holy and unexplainable peace.

An Unhurried Mindset

Everything is already taken care of by Me, so you can step back and take a deep, calming breath. I know how your mind tends to race with imagining plans and details. Like a stallion at the starting gate, you wrestle with anticipation of taking off at full throttle at everything there is to do ahead of you. What if I told you there is no need to hurry, and I gently opened the gate to a pleasing meadow to amble in instead of a race track to get to the finish on? Approach this day with an unhurried mindset and see how things still get done while you are more at ease with the pace. I am here for you.

Leadership

Remember Who is in charge. You are so prone to taking on more responsibility than is really yours to carry. Try stepping back more today and allow others to lead in their own style. Consider that I may be the One behind their decisions, actions, and choices, – even if their leadership style is different than your expectations. Your presence is still needed, but try taking  a supportive role of others rather than stepping in to take charge all the time. Let the chips fall where they may as you find peace by trusting My true leadership in every situation you encounter.

Resist the Urge to Relive Yesterday’s Worries

I am sovereign over all things. When worries of yesterday crop up, resist the urge to relive the experience or to criticize your every move. Quickly push the anxiety aside by saying, “Lord, You placed me where I was and I can trust You with the impact and outcomes.” You need not worry about others impressions of you. My love for you is all-encompassing, and I want you to rest assured that all is well with you in My eyes. Take this to heart: you are loveable, likeable, and accepted.

Life Doesn’t Have to Get to You

I have made it as easy as possible for you to receive My love and My gift of peace. It’s simple, really. I am already here! Ever-present and ever-ready to assist you to breathe ease into your anxious little heart. It takes one simple act on your part: to choose to believe in Me and receive this free gift. Choose Me. Choose “us”! Life doesn’t have to ‘get to you’ if you start to accept that I am already there for you, – never dropping or abandoning you. I will help you get through anything and everything. I even help you rediscover joy. Say yes to our togetherness and allow yourself to breathe a sigh of relief as I comfort you this way.

I Am Never Disappointed In You

First and foremost, I want you to comprehend that I am never disappointed in you. It is you who puts critical judgement on your emotions, actions, and thoughts, – deeming them as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and equating them with worthiness. I don’t operate that way, though. I want you to know you are worth loving and being attended to. Allow yourself to receive My unconditional love. See how it changes you to become a person at peace, just as you are called and designed to be.

Excited Observation

I call you to simplicity as a gift filled with My Peace. Find quiet contentment by taking a walk or just enjoying the birds.  Use excited observation with eyes open to My wonder. By enhancing your ability to be aware, you’ll find a vision for loveliness that allows healing. Stress will dissipate as you hone this skill of being present and fully aware in the moment.
