When Old Memories Plague You

I see when old memories of experiences that scared you or made you feel ashamed return to plague your mind. I watch as you turn them over and over in your head. How I ache to console you when that is happening! Turn to Me for safety. Run to My arms for loving reassurance. Let Me hold you tightly until the things that upset you feel far away. Leave what was in the past back there. Consciously choose to remind yourself that today is a new day. The past doesn’t need to be given power over who you are. Focus on the present – your surroundings, your senses, and My comforting Presence. Choose to believe that all is and can be well again for I love you and I  make all things new.

Aim for What is Doable

I am a reassuring God. I often see you pushing yourself, striving for that unattainable perfection and trying to be the most thoughtful, capable person who is always on top of everything. Allow Me to bless you with full acceptance of your efforts; I deem them to truly be enough. Yes, I want you to be kind, loving and thoughtful and to use your talents well, but not at the expense of beating yourself up with unrealistic expectations. My bar for you is no higher than what you can comfortably and reasonably accomplish today, – no more and no less. Aim for what is doable and leave the rest for Me to attend. Accept My fully pleased response to you, which never has to be earned. I give it freely.

I Am Your Protector & Healer

Oh, my anxious one! How I long to scoop you up into My arms like a little lamb, shaking in the dark and cold world. I am your protector and healer. The Light of day is coming soon and will shed new perspective for you. You can trust Me and My plans for Good things to come. I will not let you down. In fact, I’ll keep holding you tightly until you feel confident and reassure again. Stay with Me as long as it takes to settle you down before stepping into the day. I will be with you wherever you go, and continue carrying you as long as you need Me to.

When Others Let You Down

When others let you down or don’t give efforts to share the load the way you’d like, turn to Me. Ask for My help with shrugging off the offense. Consider that I will be your partner in getting things done, even if others aren’t helping the way you’d prefer. I can make any load more bearable. I may even introduce a new helper to involve. Release your anger and criticism, and open yourself to My change in plans. I love you and will always be there for you, reliably helping even when others disappoint.

Thy Kingdom Come

“Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” These are never meant to be ominous or foreboding words. When you ask to follow My will for you or seek My kingdom’s ways here on earth, you will find comfort and peace. Following My will is an act of trust, and in return I give you reassurance that Goodness will surface. While you won’t necessarily be free of strife or difficulties, you will definitely be able to handle them because I’ll equip you and send help. Seek My kingdom (My will) as top priority today and find the calmness you so desire within you to surface.

Abundance and Ease

Instead of frowning at your day ahead with its multitude of tasks or minor irritations, pause to focus on Me first. Absorb My Love-Light, beckoning you to recognize the abundance and ease I offer to you daily. You will have plenty of what is needed to accomplish those tasks. You are already equipped, and My supply is abundant today. As you breathe in My reassurance, everything ahead will feel lighter and more doable. I offer you peace with an ever-ready supply when you move with Me at My pace intended for you.

Soften Up

Take time to relax and remember that I have you in the palm of My hands. Cling to Me as I work on washing away old hurts, making you impervious to them over time. I’m not One to ask you to “toughen up”. Rather, I want you to soften up on yourself. As you learn to cut yourself some slack, you will find it easier to accept others are they are, as well. You won’t be as susceptible to the sting of off-handed remarks that tend to hurt or offend you. There’s no need to feel defensive when your confidence and assurance lies with Me.

Your True Value

You think I haven’t been speaking to you much lately, but this isn’t true. Every time you experience a nudge encouraging you to challenge your self-critical talk, it is my voice of loving reassurance telling you of your true value and worth. When you hear a gentle reminder of “do not fear”, it is Me saying, “I’ve got this”, “It’s not all up to you”, and “You aren’t in trouble”. When you are riddled with worry, turn to My face of love and concern for you. I have you cupped in the palm of My ever-capable hands. I delight in you! And I want only Good things for you, not dismay. Come to Me,- daily, hourly, – and see that all is and will be well; for I am yours and you are Mine.

Irritable Moments

I am with you every step of the way. I don’t call you to be perfect. You will have minor irritations in this world, which don’t make you a bad person. In these irritable moments, just pause and inhale deeply. Hear Me acknowledging, “I hear you. I know you. I get it.” Remember that this, too, shall pass. Perhaps through this internal dialogue with Me, the mere act of having Me validate your experience will be the calming effect you need to endure this short-term storm. Turn to Me to live with ease like that.

Your Busy Head

You are bright and beautiful. Your busy head spins with bright thoughts and dark ones intermingled, and hardly a quiet moment. Today, if you notice the cogs on that wheel working double-time, try shutting off the power and allow yourself to be still. Yes, – be still, and know that I am God. I love you just as you are. There’s no need to prove yourself through performance. Be still, and be reassured that all is well for everything beyond your control. I am working to relieve you and protect you from harm. I am trustworthy. Take heart in the stillness as you refocus and are revived.
