Picture the Best-Case Scenario

Sometimes you are uneasy inside, even without a reason. That general sense of anxiety and worry merely stems from old habits. In the past, you had to feel prepared for many unknowns on high alert because the people you were with or experiences you were in felt unsafe. I am and have always been your rock of safety and your shelter from the storm. Even now, I pull you out of anxious places and show you people and places with healthy support. Look to Me as you develop new habits of calm and ease. You needn’t worry about things that most likely will never happen. Picture the best-case scenario today and watch as I help make it unfold.

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.

I’ll Keep You Afloat

You are in My kind hands today. I can navigate the tricky waters ahead with you. Just sit back in My boat as together we face the direction you are headed in. Entrust Me with the oars, and hand over the choices to Me. I can handle the rapids and keep you afloat, even in stormy times. I may ask you to help paddle upstream a bit, but together we can navigate it all safely.

Present and Attentive to You

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.

The Worries You Carry

You can trust Me. My love for you is far-reaching, and I am tenderly caring for your every concern. I know the worries you carry quietly in your head. Nothing goes unnoticed, and I am attending to them all. Release any fears you may have, knowing you are in the protective palms of My hands.

Ushering You Away From Harm

You can trust Me. I never have back-handed motives or actions. I am a loving God who only operates in safe, kind, and caring ways. No matter who has treated you poorly in the past or how you’ve been hurt, I’m not like that. Picture Me standing by your side if memories of those encounters are clouding your mind. Rewrite that scenario by envisioning Me shielding you with a protective arm, ushering you away from the harm. Turn to Me and cling to the folds of My garments, for I am with you. Ask for My help to heal old wounds and release their grip on you. I am by your side, wishing you wellness and peace.

Give Others the Chance to Step Up

I have good plans in store. I am a trustworthy God with a greater design at work than what might be visible to your mind’s eye. I’ll help you step back when it’s time to listen and not respond. Watch as I orchestrate giving others the chance to step up to the plate. See how it’s not all up to you. I can take care of you in ways such as this when you relinquish your frantic attempts to be in control. Things don’t always have to go your way to be good. Sometimes a change in plans works out better. You are safe in My arms; trust Me to be there at all times.

In the Unknown

I give you this day. Instead of begrudgingly or warily getting started, try to see it as a gift,-  full of unanticipated surprises placed by Me for you and interspersed ahead. Recognize that I am already there in the unknown. Picture Me beckoning you from around the corner to accompany Me. Be curious alongside Me. I am a safe and even playful companion. I will help lessen the fear and anxiety.

Waves of Anxiety or Hurt

Despite the ebbs and tides of your emotions, I am the Constant in your life. Look to Me for safety, shelter, and calming. If a wave of anxiety or hurt comes over you, remember that the tide will surely pull it back out to sea again, – away from you. It will not stay in place for long. Look for what is left for you to appreciate and observe in the tide pools. See new discoveries about yourself that hold true even after the worries of life recede. You’ll find playfulness, color, and new life darting about with joyful surprises in store.

Practice Love and Acceptance

So much of the world is presented in extremes: “right” vs. “wrong”; “my way” vs. “your way”. I am much more tolerant of frailties and misgivings. My will is for what is full of Goodness and Love, – the extreme Light of the world. I desire for you to practice that kind of love and acceptance of others even in their places of darkness. People get overshadowed by pride, ego, fear, and defensiveness. These get cloaked in anger, retaliation, gossip, and vengefulness. The best way to combat darkness is with LIGHT, – My Light. Picture yourself cloaked in shining garments, radiant with peace. You can be an element of Grace and Light in the world. Even if it’s only in one corner today, you can light up a room. I will equip you as you ask for help. Let Goodness triumph over darkness today; do not fear, for I will give you safety and reassurance.
