Pay attention to your body today. Notice the signals for when it needs a break or wants you to cut yourself some slack. Rest is just as important as exercise, good nutrition, and hydration. Everything in checks and balances. Take time to move, but also carve out time for slowing and mindfulness. You can have both in your routine, you know. Ask for My help when life feels hard or even before it becomes overwhelming. It doesn’t have to feel hectic all the time.

You strive so hard. That busy head has a hard time shutting off or slowing down. Constant planning and busy-ness can be signs of how uncomfortable you are in the waiting and with silence, but you need not be so afraid. I’m inviting you to enter this new year differently. Come, sit often with Me at the well and experience My waters of grace and fulfillment. Take a sip of contentment and reassurance. I have you in the palm of My hands at all times. Sit in silence regularly with Me, truly handing each day over and practicing the art of trusting faith. Soon, you will find yourself actually longing for silence because you’ll understand how much our time together like this helps. Even if you only have a moment, seek My peace-filled Presence in silent communion with Me.

There are many distractions tugging at you for your time and attention. Practice slowing and choosing one thing at a time to focus on. I can help you organize what to prioritize. Give Me all of your lists and the weight of your worry. I am here, always trying to make it more manageable for you. Problems arise when you look at the mounds and forget I am here, steadily taking care of the stacks, one by one. Look to Me for guidance and lean on Me for security. Peace is available when you remember I am in your midst and will never allow things to be too much to handle. Trust Me: we can get through anything together.

You can try to look beyond the horizon, but you won’t be able to see it. That’s because I don’t intend for you to worry about future things. The field and the forests right in front of you are plenty to take in for now. Picture Me clearing a path through the density of all this activity going on in your life. See how it unfolds, just a little bit at a time. You don’t have to cover more ground than what is right in front of you. Things can wait. Trust that I have it all laid out in doable increments, then concentrate on just taking one step at a time. There is no need to run down this path, either. Take your time, and it will all be covered eventually as you stay on track with Me.

Pushing the pause button to spend time with Me is the very best thing you can do when life feels worrisome or hectic. Truly, stop everything and talk to Me. Listen for My loving, reassuring voice reminding you, “I’ve got this”. Everything is not all up to you alone. I am here, and I have your destiny capably in My hands. Breathe a sigh of gratitude and relief, knowing you can trust Me and rely on Me for help.

Even on days when you are energized, still try to do just one thing at a time. Multi-tasking may trip you up, lending itself to frenetic behavior and added, undue anxiety. Slow and steady. Use that energy to focus on listening and pausing for clarity from Me. Let Me guide your steps today.

You can live calmly and grounded. It takes conscious effort, though, to push aside distractions and quiet the chatter inside your head. So much of what spins in there is just imagined scenarios that never come into fruition. Ground yourself in the here and now. Stop, take a breath, and look around you – observing color or sounds in this present moment. Appreciate the gift of time slowing down when you hone in on My Presence with you right here, right now. Be at ease as you trust in My Goodness. I am looking out for you, always.

Be slower to move in response to things today. Give yourself time to think things through and filter them from My perspective. I will help determine what needs a response now verses what can wait until later, helping to make things flow more effectively. The aim is to not be overwhelmed and to be less stressed by whatever comes at you. I will lead you on the path of ease and calm.

Pace yourself. One thing at a time; one foot in front of the other. Instead of being like a boulder perched at the top of a steep hill that gets pushed over the edge only to roll faster and faster as you gain momentum toward the bottom, pick a more leisurely route. It may take longer to get to the destination, but the slower pace will allow you to take in and impact so much more along the way. Don’t berate yourself for moving slower than you are accustomed to doing. Recognize that I join you on this journey, and My timing is perfect. What can stand against this plan if I am with you?

Take notice: I call to you subtly and softly when you slow your mind’s activity enough to be aware of My Presence. I am not just “near”, – I am within you, looking out through your eyes and surrounding you fully. There’s no need to spend so much time comparing, contrasting and rating yourself against others. This sadness Me, because all I ask is for you to love one another and yourself. Learn to recognize the built-in Goodness inherently pairing you and I. This will help you treat yourself and others with more compassion. I will protect you from harm when you encounter ridicule from others who don’t know or trust My Presence. Just continue the Good work I have started in you and spread the news of hope and love. Rejoice in the dawn of this day!
