There will be time enough for everything. You get so tangled up in worries that you’ll forget an important detail, trying to be so on top of things all the time. Its exhausting watching you strive this way, often mistaking your regimens as being what I ask of you. I call for BALANCE. Rest is part of that balance. You don’t have to fear not being ‘productive’ all the time. Come play with Me and take time to attend to all the facets of yourself. It all fits into My grand plan for you. Find me as you rediscover what you love and unearth treasures you forgot you had all along.

Why do you berate yourself so much? Nothing you have done will make Me turn My back on you. Breathe in My light by closing your eyes and becoming aware of My constant, loving companionship. I cherish you! Your weariness needs to be attended to. Find rest and store up trust for the days ahead. As you become more practiced in the art of releasing concerns and worries to Me, you will find I attend to each item and this allows you to rest even more deeply and thoroughly. Both rest and action must be honored for your spiritual growth.

You require more rest and balance. For some people this comes naturally and easily, but others like you have to work hard to establish boundaries and carve out time for rest. It may mean setting boundaries with others or boundaries against your relentless self that is so driven to accomplishment and perfection. Ask Me what is most needed today, and acknowledge the places you are vulnerable. I am not a harsh task-master driving you until you are weary in your bones. Don’t let exhaustion overcome you. Find rest for your body, soul and mind with My help. Remember that My first call invites you to peace.

I am a God of leisure, just as I am a God of work. Take time to notice things around you as you move at a relaxed pace. When you are too busy and hurried, you may miss all the tender gifts I have placed within your sight and reach. Work on silencing your thoughts and listening with all of your senses from time to time. Why do you push yourself so hard? Find the balance I intended for your life and nourish your soul.

It is so important, yet rare, that you take the time for quieting. Listen to the stillness of this moment. Absorb it, opening your mind to this simplicity, – then you can hear My great voice. Today, be freed just to listen with no expectations placed on you. I call you to truly rest and bask in the quiet. You don’t have to always be productive in order to be loved by Me. Practice the art of meditation today. Be still and know that I am God. Know Me. Know I Am. Just be still.

When the world gets busy around you, stop to concentrate on being Light-filled. Rest your weary head as I lift the weight of the world off your shoulders, knowing I hold you in the palm of My hand. Allow Me to ease tension as you focus on clearing out your mind. See My Light filling you. These blissful moments with Me are very real, and meant to build and restore you as you take time to just BE.

Today I ask you to concentrate on doing good things for others. It takes effort to listen well, being focused and attentive to needs beyond your own. If you take one interaction at a time, by the end of the day you will be able to see that what was accomplished was enough. Take periods of rest, too. It’s okay to not overextend yourself. I am teaching you dependence upon Me, and learning to pace yourself is part of that education. I desire for you to live in peace, and not to be taking on too much that will overwhelm you. All is and can be well.

I know your heart and its ways – how you long for time alone and rest. I see how you push yourself to accomplish many things as you interact with others daily. I have plans in store that account for your abilities as well as for your needs. Seek balance between giving of your time and finding rest. The ebb and tide of life’s demands requires that you take time to replenish. It’s important to make time to observe and gear up as well as to extend yourself. Like tidal waves that reach the shore then retreat for a while, only to roll back again later, I will give you enough energy to accomplish each task for My purposes. I will shed light on what to pursue in your heart, and will also supply rest and refreshment. Step slowly, watching for My hand in your day’s plans. Feel the Spirit’s flow of extending, reaching, and then retreating. Rest in My perpetual call to love and to rest.

Know that I am God. My desire isn’t to have you work yourself to the bone. I want you to treasure your spirit as I treasure you. Lay your weary head on My shoulder. Let Me soothe away the strain. I am indeed pleased with you. Work less hard in the sense of taking things one task at a time and not overwhelming yourself. Look for Me in the eyes of others who see you as kind, compassionate, and capable. They recognize your fatigue, too, so there’s no need to hide it. Close your eyes and rest on My shoulder as needed today. Let Me help comfort and rejuvenate you as you drink from My well.

Take it all in! I freely give you the sights, sounds, colors, and scents in this garden of delight. Practice slowing down and noticing things. Most importantly, take in the sense of peace and ease I offer if you stop long enough to receive. Learn to take rest breaks more often, acknowledging My call for you to be present in the moment with Me like this. Things will get done in due time. Time with Me is always time well-spent.
