I continue to call you to the quiet. As you practice releasing those spinning thoughts and finding a place of calm beside Me, My peace can nestle in. Sit with Me. It’s as simple as that. Stay with Me a while, right here with nothing in particular to do. It is here that I can refresh your mind and provide a new perspective. My ways are meant to be simple like that. Put a “do not disturb” sign up mentally in your head, intentionally choosing to hold onto this peaceful mindset I offer you daily, hourly, – right here and right now. I am yours.

Ask Me to help quiet your busy mind. Breathe in the peace and calm I surround you with. Picture that My intentions for you are Good. When you release your futile attempts to control things around you, you can then realize I help make things fall into place. Much of your stress can be whisked away. Yes, you will have daily challenges, struggles, and limitations, but elect to rise above them on the rock I provide. Step up with My perspective and take view of My Grace, which will always aid you in resolving the matter of the moment. When you feel most flustered by all that is coming at you, stand still and recognize I am at your side. Nothing can stand against us.
Allow Me to calm you. Take these peaceful, quiet moments when you can get them and appreciate how I call you to rest. Sometimes what you need most is to stop and be silent. Listen to small things – clocks ticking, birds calling, washing machine humming, – whatever is going on. Just take notice and appreciate how calming this can be. Then, remind yourself of one of my most important phrases: “Be still, and know that I am God.” I am YOUR God, lovingly present and bringing good out of every circumstance. As you breathe in this truth, exhale doubt and fear.
I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty.
Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
My work will get done. It always does, in due time. The trick is to not be so hard on yourself. Adjust your pace and relax into the day. Life’s struggles are behind you, and I give you memories and experiences to harvest now. All is well. Know Me. Find this quiet time as ripe organic matter fueling you with life-giving material. Enjoy this new phase of knowing I hand everything to you without expectations beyond your capacity. I only call you to what comes naturally.
Wait in quiet trust. I am a generous God with plans to give you all you need and even more in abundance. What is of most value is our time together. Life doesn’t always have to be full of “wow” experiences to be satisfying and joyful. Sometimes it is best lived in stillness and quiet. You can stop pushing so hard. Joy doesn’t necessarily accompany accomplishment. Learn to be in awe even in the undone, anticipating Goodness to come. You can also appreciate Goodness in the here and now.
You have a hard time giving yourself permission to take a break. Even when the break involves communication with Me, you still feel the urge to rush off and ‘be productive’ elsewhere. Cut yourself some slack. Get in tune with the essential nature of finding quiet time with Me. I can make your movement so much more efficient and effortless, but your striving must be for building My kingdom. Any other purpose will make you spin your wheels and burn out your engine. Be ignited for My plans, fueled by quiet thought and prayer time daily. Giving yourself room and permission to pause doesn’t make you a ‘slacker’. It’s essential to become grounded with Me first and foremost.
I know how you struggle with finding or maintaining a peaceful state of mind. It feels like there is so much to do and so little time some days. I want you to take off the pressure to perform. The best way to manage that is to intentionally pause and linger in moments. Stop long enough to whisper My name and recognize My calming Presence. Listen for small sounds and focus on the gentle Light I place around you. In this quiet, hushed place you can be refreshed- reminded that you never go it alone. I am with you, equipping you and taking care of the outcomes. You will have all you need.
I call you to do great works. My definition of “great” is different than the world’s, – sometimes done with small deeds in quiet simplicity. Be yourself as I designed you, using your genuine compassion for the Good of others. There is no need to put on airs or present yourself in distorted efforts to achieve status. You are already prominent in My eyes, and only My judgement matters. I equip all My children differently, providing an exquisite balance of needs and talents perfectly matched when you listen to My call and guidance. You cannot measure or manage another person’s gifts, but you can be responsible for your own and lead by example. Let kindness rule with forgiveness and compassion today. Many blessings occur and unfold in abundance with this practice.
