You may ask, “Why me, Lord?” Wondering why I chose you or why you are in a particular circumstance; wondering if you are enough, or do you have what it takes. My answer may surprise you. I say you are a perfect fit. I say you are more than enough, – equipped for whatever it takes. I deem you ready and capable. Others will look to you for leadership. Say yes to Me. Offer to be utterly resounded to My will and My plan, and all will unfold as it should.
Sometimes I call you to sit and be still, but right now it’s time to get going. I’m nudging you, – urging you to use the drive I’ve instilled in you to get things done as part of My will. Be encouraged; this is according to My plans for you and for the world. Everyone has a part in My design. Your work is important and meant to be shared with others. Take the risks needed and find My Glory unfolding brightly as you go along. I’m ALL IN and in it all with you.
I am relying on you to be the voice of compassion and teach this to others. Instead of taking offense to insensitive comments, soften your voice. Be determined to share a different perspective out of a desire to spread My Love. You can confront hurtful ways. Take My hand first, though, and pause to breathe. I will help with the wording. We can do this together.
There’s a lot going on for you. I know about everything on your plate. Take time out to pause and recognize My Presence in each interaction and activity. Mentally pause to nod in My direction, acknowledging My sovereign and intimate involvement within you and those around you. Smile inside, aware of the Goodness in our connection. A sense of purpose will arise out of the busy chaos when you stop to take notice of My powerful and loving Presence. I can calm the waters anywhere you go.
You will get your “drive” back. Sometimes I call you to slow down, and even to stop. I don’t mean for you to entirely back out of life and all of its commitments. Balance is the key and pausing to spend time with Me daily is the fuel you need. Fill up on My reassurance and love for you. Take in gallons of encouragement. My ways are gentle and kind, and I want you to treat yourself well with the same intention. Put the brakes on when anxiety and self-hatred try to take the driver’s seat. Order them to get out of the car; they don’t belong there. Let Me take over, steering you in the right direction. My ride is meant to be safe and slow, giving you ample time to take in the scenery.
I am sovereign over your life. Allow Me to be in charge of every aspect – the work of your hands, the words from your mouth, the inspiration from your heart, and the creativity of your mind. You and I are fluid, flowering, intermingled as One. Grasp your importance as you identify with Me, knowing that I wipe the slate clean with a fresh start. Put on your best attitude, open to what I have in store for this day. Do everything in partnership with Me.
“Timing is everything”. My timing is mystical. I’m not random with My purpose, though. Sometimes I nudge you boldly into action, and other times I hold you back from change until I know you are ready. The events in your life may also be created for the benefit of OTHERS, not necessarily your own. Take joy in trusting My divine crafting of your life events. Try not to disdain your circumstances. I know what I am doing, and there will be benefit for you in due time.
I put you smack dab in the middle of these situations because you are ready and you are needed. From the moment you wake up I ignite you with something new and different. Stop doubting your worth. Walk with Me. Let’s encounter life together. Be drawn in both by the Goodness and the needs. Every day is brand new.
I see your struggle with finding motivation. I have the power to ignite you. Ask Me to fill you with a desire to fulfill the purpose and plans I have in store for you. Look for My Spirit alive in you, – able to equip you with a zest for living and a desire to get going today. Tell Me that you choose to live well for Me. I love hearing that! I will support and uplift you each time you choose to say YES.
I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest.
