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.

Further Than You Planned For

I am whispering to you. So often My lambs do not hear My voice but it is there, beckoning them to safer ground and providing affection, encouragement, and understanding. Sometimes that safer ground is higher ground, – one that calls you to make harder steps or pushes you further than you planned for, – but it is always worth the effort. The sights and peacefulness this higher ground brings is far more satisfying than the immediate, fleeting pleasures that tug at you and try to distract or misguide you along the way. My way is steady and sure. Take the high ground today at all costs. When the steps seem steep, challenging, or unsteady, I will take your elbow. I never let go of you. Join Me in the direction I prefer and have designed for you. Even when My lambs stray off the intended path, My hand is outstretched and waiting to guide them home.

Not In Harm’s Way

I know you and I long for your safety and protection. I am not sending you to the wolves and will not allow you to be put in harm’s way. I will be watching for potential danger, taking your hand and guiding you on the right path. You are a grown person, full of competence and the ability to use good judgment. I trust that in you, and have entrusted a set of gifts which are needed in this fractured world. Others look to you for the same comfort and guidance I provide to you. You can handle it, for I give you nothing greater than what I equip you to do. My yoke is easier than you worry about.

Follow My Safe Lead

I am reaching for you, – standing right here, – facing you. Open your eyes and heart to greet Me. Say yes to My invitation allowing Me to console you like no other can. I know you’ve been hurt. I can’t protect you from all pain caused by others in this world, but I can lift you out of it. It may require walking away from hurtful situations. When it is time, I will make the move and signal your way through. Follow My lead. Hold on to the fact that I will never leave your side. With Me,  you are safe again.
