When you are ready, I will show up. Even though I am always a reachable God, there is also an element of mystery as to when, how, and where I speak to you. Regardless, I am always present, – silently accompanying you. Wait to hear My Voice. You will recognize Me! You’ve heard Me before and answered My call to you many times. There is value in waiting, and in this time for reflection. You can rely on Me even when I appear to be quiet.
It’s so important that you take a day of rest. Your world bombards you with a constant stream of electronics and pressures, all vying for your attention. I call you to put down your phone and quiet your busy mind. Use all of your senses taking in this day and moment. See color, feel temperature and movement, take time to truly taste each bite. Touch the things and people I place before you today with eye-opening wonder. See how enlivened you become when you use a day of rest like this to be rejuvenated and restored.
Keep doing what you’re doing right now: spending time listening to Me. I do speak in ways that are understandable and clear when you stop your frantic pace long enough to hear. I call you to slow down and pause frequently. Breathe in this reminder and truth: I am with you! Always. When I said to you, “My peace I give to you”, I meant it. Freely lavished when you take time to open your hands. Sit with Me and see how awareness of My Presence calms you down. My Love and Grace can melt away the worries.
I am a gentle God. Do not mistake My gentleness for lacking in power, because I still am the Great I Am who can accomplish all things. I may be calling you to sort out your priorities, releasing things that aren’t worth your time in My eyes as I help you determine what’s important. In a quiet space, hear My forgiveness. Let go of hurt. I can help you find the peace you so desire. In the quiet you will find renewal, clarity, and strength to do what is right and good.
There is so much activity all around you and in your busy head. Things to do at work and home, resounding noise in social media and news headlines, unanticipated interruptions. I call you to the quiet. It’s so important to carve out this time for us. Take time intermittently during the day to quietly spend time with you and I together, communicating and listening. This intentional pause button is the best and only way to replenish you. Without it, you can easily become derailed into thinking everything is all up to you. Worry stems from this misnomer. Release every single piece of your life into My hands to determine the direction for you today.
