There is time enough for everything – even self-care. The last thing I intend is for you to feel discouraged or defeated. Carve out alone time and quiet time today to meet with Me for restoration. Let Me remind you of your likeability and how much you are loved and valued, even if others don’t express appreciation for all that you do. You are living for Me, and My measuring stick is different than the world’s is. Find your purpose and meaning by trusting Me and how I use your life for Good things. You are needed and loved by Me, and that is what matters the most.

I have so many things I wish to create in and through you. I desire your JOY as much as you desire to be JOYFUL. You don’t have to “do” anything to earn it. I want you to try new things I place before you through My divine inspiration. Behold! I will restore you and provide more than enough to fill you with love, friendship, and joy.

It is in your nature to be joyful, so ask for My help to stop you from being so crabby and anxious. Take a nap, or find ways to rest. Put away the things that are stressing you out for an hour or a day so you can come back to the work I intend for you without dreading it. I never want you working from a place of dread and angst. Let Me help refresh you.

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.

Take care of yourself, including tending to your need for food, exercise, and rest. Build in time for conversations with Me daily as part of that self-care, too, because I want to build up your spiritual self, as well. I cannot implement the big plans I have in store for you until you can be strengthened to manage all that will be involved. There are many demands on your time. Gently I call you to be reminded that My well does not run dry. You can dip your ladle in these life-giving waters of Grace as many times as is needed to quench your parched body. As you extend yourself and thirst for more water, I will replenish and recharge your body and spirit. You will be ready for a multitude of tasks requiring your energy and concentration if you come to the well frequently.

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.

I know your longing for confidence and a sense of inner ease. I also see the frail moments where, in your head, you are susceptible to crumbling to pieces. It’s okay that this happens now and then. Be kind and forgiving to yourself when it does, showing gentle compassion and healthy self-care. I will mend every single piece of that brokenness. No crumb goes unnoticed by Me. Picture Me gazing lovingly at you as I reassuringly pick up piece after piece. I will wipe every tear away and breathe restoration into your deflated spirit. You are resilient and will come through it all well. Make this truth your focus to get you by today.

Lay those burdens aside. Come to Me in all your fragility, presenting those agonizing thoughts and experiences you keep re-hashing over and over again in your head. Allow Me to warm you from your core, like hands hovering near an open fire. Let the warmth of My reassuring love heal that hurtful self-talk, turning those lies to ashes. You are loved, purely and simply, just as you are. The past mistakes are already forgiven. There’s no benefit to clinging to them anymore. Let the flame of My healing Spirit take over, renewing you for Good. It’s time to let that past go.

I still have big plans in store for you and for the world. I know you’ve doubted that lately, feeling complacent, discouraged, and lacking in motivation toward your part in the change. Try viewing this down time as a platform for recuperating and gaining new perspective. Ready yourself for things unknown and full of exciting promise. You can be at peace in the present, but don’t forget about including hope for the future in what you picture ahead. I’ll light the way.
