Grip My Hand Tighter

Stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Do you not remember that I am accompanying you every day, minute, and hour, – grasping your right hand every step of the way? Why do you loosen your grip? I will always let you choose to do things your way, but I still remain near and ever-present. Instead of feeling so stressed, pressured, and worried about the tasks and circumstances before you, try gripping My hand even tighter. Let Me lead you, one task at a time. Don’t cling to self-reliance. I can give you all the confidence needed to use your talents and energy for My divine purpose. 

The Most Unbearable Burden

I can bear the most unbearable burden. The cross I carry is long-lasting, strong, and able to handle any weight. I watch over those who suffer. I ease pain, – sometimes only in slow increments, but always enough to make your load bearable. I could ease yours more if you would trust that I am carrying ALL of it. Release it,-completely!, – and then experience the peace  that goes beyond understanding. Release your grip on things of this earth. I love you and will provide for your every need. 

Reassurance

Don’t get caught up in trying to imagine everything and work it all out in your head. I don’t work that way. Instead, let the worries of today fall away for a second as you face Me in your mind. Take a deep breath and continue to seek My face. You don’t have to fear what I’m going to say. My words are always of reassurance. You are okay – and loved. I’m right here beside you and am never going to leave your side. Let’s step into today together, trusting that I’ve made you ready and equipped you for any tasks or encounters that take place. I can and will help you focus, giving you right words to say when the time comes. You can be brave with Me at your side.

Stick Close to Me

Stick close to Me. I know your anxious ways, but I would rather have you come to Me for reassurance. All is well. You are set to do the right thing today. My hand is at your back, gently guiding you from place to place. Breathe in confidence, knowing I’ve prepared you for whatever is at hand. You’ve got this; I’ve made you ready.

Worry is Senseless

I take care of your every need. Every bite of food, each reassuring glance, every ounce of hope instilled is all part of My handiwork. In fact, when you think of it, all worry is truly senseless.  Try this for a day: pay attention to all that I provide – adequate food, clothing, a home, transportation, an able body, a bright mind. You will have everything you need to be exactly where you are supposed to be. I’ll help you show up and I’ll even help you finish the work. You are never alone. 

Don’t Get Preoccupied with Tomorrow

I place My holy hand upon you in this day. You are called, chosen, and ready because you are My child. Don’t be intimidated by anything I ask of you – in this day or the next. I wouldn’t call you to anything that I won’t equally equip you for. Don’t get preoccupied with tomorrow. Pull in the reigns of your mind for the tasks of this day only. The more you practice this skill, the better your capacity to trust Me will be refined. See that what I am providing is plenty, and be thankful. 

When It Is Time

When it is time, I will ask you to move. When the way is clear, you will stride with ease. When the day remains dark, I may only have you make tiny steps, inching out slowly until your footing is secure. You have no idea what awaits you in the day ahead, but one thing is assured: I will be with you wherever you go. When you feel overwhelmed or burdened, remember My steadfast love never leaves you alone. I will supply all that is needed in these next 24 hours. Lean on Me. 

Curbing Cravings

Be thirsty for life with Me. When you find yourself craving something, – food, beverages, attention, prestige, material things, – choose for a moment to acknowledge that I am a God who provides. There is peace of mind that transpires in this holy transaction of thought. I always provide enough for you in 24-hour increments. If you are left still feeling unsatisfied, consider turning your desire over to Me for examination and input. Waiting for things to come from heavenly realms may re-shape what you desire. Let Me curb your hunger in ways that truly satisfy beyond what you can imagine.
