When you are sad or anxious, I am fully present. I don’t wait for you to be struggling in order to come near, though. The truth is, I am always fully present and attentive to you. That may be hard to wrap your head around when you are caught up in worries or stress. Be gentler on yourself. I don’t mind attending to your needs. Take a break from sadness, worry, and fear, and rest in My safe arms for a while. Let Me nurture you back to confidence. Everything will work its way out in due time.

It’s okay to not be happy all the time. On those days when you feel sad or discouraged, treat yourself extra gently, – just as I would. Attend to your needs like you would a sick child: encouraging rest, offering something cool to drink, tenderly stroking their head and praying for them to get better. Lean into hope that things are on the mend and lighter, easier days are ahead. In fact, cling to this hope as your lifeline of truth, because I am here.

‘Do not let your heart be discouraged’. Your emotions are real, and allowable. Difficult times will swell up now and then, and it’s reasonable and normal to feel things like distress, anxiety, sadness, or annoyance. By the phrase ‘do not let your heart be discouraged’, I am not saying don’t feel discouragement. Instead, I am guiding you to still acknowledge the truth of how you feel, but to also place it before Me to help you handle. I’m asking you to not let it rule your day or consume your thoughts. Instead, ‘let your heart be reassured’: I’m here, and I’m with you and for you, always.
I delight in your vulnerable self, because it is in your vulnerability that I can be drawn ever so close to you. I offer Light-filled moments for you to rest your head upon as I fill the room around you with peace. Let Me cover you in soft blankets of comfort and compassion. I share in your sorrow, yet I want you to see My Joy ahead. I still have much Goodness in store for you. Allow others to care for you in your time of sorrow. Don’t be afraid to show your sadness. I need you to demonstrate how to grieve just as much as how to have strength in faith.
Envision Light all around. Protective Light. Light more powerful than any dark forces encroaching on you. My Light surrounds you from every angle. Surrounded by Me, you need not be afraid. Let your sadness be cradled in My arms…your fears be cupped in My hands. Hear Me whisper, “I am with you! I am here.” Not one speck or shard from the broken pieces goes unnoticed by Me. I pick each up delicately and will use it elsewhere. Eventually Light will come even from the reflection of those shards.
I desire to comfort you. Instead of wallowing in the worries and sadness that risk overwhelming you, look to Me. See My loving face aimed straight at you, pouring out compassion and understanding. Rest here within My gaze and realize things will work out. Let gentleness toward yourself and others rule in your heart and your outlook today. I am with you and for you, and I bring Good out of every hard or sad thing you go through.
I detect that note of sadness inside, – well-hidden from others’ observation. You can come to Me in that vulnerable space because I get it. I know exactly what you are missing, grieving, and disappointed by. It’s okay to be sad like that. I never see it as a sign of weakness. Allow Me to console you, just being near and sitting in that pool of grief together. Soon I will help you rise above it all. There is a season for everything, and joy will come in the morning.
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.
Many people struggle to accept their worthiness of My unconditional love. I will move mountains to show how much I desire to be with you and in you. You are lovely to Me, and worthy of My time and attention. is that so hard to believe? Today is a great day to praise Me and sit in grateful devotion. Push your mountains of worries, doubt, and distractions to one side and let’s meet in the middle of the ravine, basking in Light and Love for a while. Weep with Me. Release your cares fully to Me because I understand. You needn’t be ashamed of your tears. Know that I understand your sadness and humility as well as your awe, then allow My gentle touch on your whole life in praise and gratitude today.
I recognize your weariness and the emotion that accompanies it. Your anxiety and stress, – sometimes including sadness or irritability, – leave you feeling overwhelmed. Press on. Come to Me with all of it and rest a while by My side. Let the tears fall. Then, after you have been able to share the load with Me, rise up. Notice that I don’t stay seated, pushing you away while saying “Just get going”. No, – I rise with you. We’ll press on together. We can handle anything this way. Let’s take it slowly, – one day, one hour, one moment at a time.
