I am working behind the scenes so you can lighten up a bit on yourself. Let joy bubble up from beneath the surface by allowing your playful side to peek through. Go ahead – laugh a little at yourself and your circumstances. This will help ease any strain caused by them otherwise. Remind yourself that what matters most is to live with love. Being able to shrug off minor irritations will help shift the weight to a more balanced perspective. You don’t have to live under all that pressure. After all, -this, too, shall pass.

When you look at the mountain of to-do’s, it can be overwhelming. Easy does it today. My advice to you is to take one thing at a time, picking away at the pile of tasks before you slowly and easily. As you study only one rock at a time, you may actually find it fascinating. Take one trail and aim to complete it, enjoying the sights along the way. I have a lot for you to see with clarity and focus when you receive My invitation to take each step with Me.

Try simplifying today. Don’t take on too much. Take simple steps, slowly attending to one thing at a time. Hurrying all the time and carrying such heavy loads of pressure is not healthy for your mind or Spirit. Wellness comes when you learn to slow down. What most needs to be done will get done, and the rest can apparently wait. Ask for My guidance to help you sort out priorities, trusting Me to handle the rest. I am with you and for you this way.

Even when you have a busy day ahead, I call you to pull back for a minute and hang with Me first. Sit as still as you can, releasing all the pressure of concerns, worries, planning, and insecurity into My hands. Focus on My pure, simple love for you. You are enough, just as you are. It’s not all up to you. Breathe in My calming words and regain focus. Let the plans and outcomes be 100% left for Me to work out. Stay with Me long enough to absorb this truth until it gives you sound footing for what will unfold as you step into the day.
Truly, I urge you to take the pressure off. Subtly and pervasively, you have been ingrained to be constantly doing, ‘performing’, accomplishing, and ‘succeeding’. It must be exhausting, always trying to measure up to self-imposed standards of perfection. My expectations are radically different. Certainly I appreciate your effort, drive, and skills; but I also appreciate quiet time spent with Me, without agendas. Practice a spiritual aim of being present in the moment, and perhaps less time-oriented. Just “be”, and see the benefit of My peace descending as a result.

Take note of My Glory today: brilliant colors and light teeming all around; life alive in nature. Notice these things intentionally and find the direct impact this has on uplifting your Spirit. I work in ways like that. Whenever you’re weighed down by stress and pressure, try to stop and realize I am already at work all around you. My hand is orchestrating next steps and all that is necessary for My kingdom’s work. Allow My will in your life to take the lead. Step back and take note of what I am doing, increasing your confidence.

Do you love Me enough to go where I ask today? I know you are tired. I see your fatigue. Nothing goes unregistered by Me. Take some of that pressure off your shoulders simply by acknowledging My supply. I give ever-enough to get you through the day, every day. You don’t have to feel responsible for everything all the time. (I know how you think). Let Me be in charge, and you just follow along. Before you know it, things will get done. All will be well.

I see you having a hard time with all those jumbled thoughts, making you feel under so much pressure. The stress of feeling like you must be on top of things all the time is taking a toll. Come to Me. Come in even closer this time, and breathe. I am already assisting you. Help is here. You just need to remember to trust Me with all of it. No detail is too small or goes unnoticed by Me. Now, add a little more self-care to the mix, trusting that there will be time enough for everything because I’m helping. I call you to calmer ways and I’ll keep providing exactly what is needed to get you through today.

‘Do not let your heart be discouraged’. Your emotions are real, and allowable. Difficult times will swell up now and then, and it’s reasonable and normal to feel things like distress, anxiety, sadness, or annoyance. By the phrase ‘do not let your heart be discouraged’, I am not saying don’t feel discouragement. Instead, I am guiding you to still acknowledge the truth of how you feel, but to also place it before Me to help you handle. I’m asking you to not let it rule your day or consume your thoughts. Instead, ‘let your heart be reassured’: I’m here, and I’m with you and for you, always.
I know you intimately, including your good intentions and efforts to do right in the world. Remember, though, that your value is not placed in works. Your worth comes from who you are innately, by My design. Your attributes, skills, interest, passions, and flaws all combine into a divinely beautiful package. Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself today, enjoying your crazy, silly side, too. My ways are serious business but include laughter and joy. Take a break from the constant pressure to plan, preside, and predict. Look for the lighter side of things today as you practice relaxing. You can lighten up with My help.
