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.

Allow Your Playful Side

I am working behind the scenes so you can lighten up a bit on yourself. Let joy bubble up from beneath the surface by allowing your playful side to peek through. Go ahead – laugh a little at yourself and your circumstances. This will help ease any strain caused by them otherwise. Remind yourself that what matters most is to live with love. Being able to shrug off minor irritations will help shift the weight to a more balanced perspective. You don’t have to live under all that pressure. After all, -this, too, shall pass.

Let Me Soothe Away the Strain

Know that I am God. My desire isn’t to have you work yourself to the bone. I want you to treasure your spirit as I treasure you. Lay your weary head on My shoulder. Let Me soothe away the strain. I am indeed pleased with you. Work less hard in the sense of taking things one task at a time and not overwhelming yourself. Look for Me in the eyes of others who see you as kind, compassionate, and capable. They recognize your fatigue, too, so there’s no need to hide it. Close your eyes and rest on My shoulder as needed today. Let Me help comfort and rejuvenate you as you drink from My well.

Excited Observation

I call you to simplicity as a gift filled with My Peace. Find quiet contentment by taking a walk or just enjoying the birds.  Use excited observation with eyes open to My wonder. By enhancing your ability to be aware, you’ll find a vision for loveliness that allows healing. Stress will dissipate as you hone this skill of being present and fully aware in the moment.

Mountain of To-Do’s

When you look at the mountain of to-do’s, it can be overwhelming. Easy does it today. My advice to you is to take one thing at a time, picking away at the pile of tasks before you slowly and easily. As you study only one rock at a time, you may actually find it fascinating. Take one trail and aim to complete it, enjoying the sights along the way. I have a lot for you to see with clarity and focus when you receive My invitation to take each step with Me.

Wellness Comes From Slowing Down

Try simplifying today. Don’t take on too much. Take simple steps, slowly attending to one thing at a time. Hurrying all the time and carrying such heavy loads of pressure is not healthy for your mind or Spirit. Wellness comes when you learn to slow down. What most needs to be done will get done, and the rest can apparently wait. Ask for My guidance to help you sort out priorities, trusting Me to handle the rest. I am with you and for you this way.

Thy Kingdom Come

“Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” These are never meant to be ominous or foreboding words. When you ask to follow My will for you or seek My kingdom’s ways here on earth, you will find comfort and peace. Following My will is an act of trust, and in return I give you reassurance that Goodness will surface. While you won’t necessarily be free of strife or difficulties, you will definitely be able to handle them because I’ll equip you and send help. Seek My kingdom (My will) as top priority today and find the calmness you so desire within you to surface.

On Sound Footing

Even when you have a busy day ahead, I call you to pull back for a minute and hang with Me first. Sit as still as you can, releasing all the pressure of concerns, worries, planning, and insecurity into My hands. Focus on My pure, simple love for you. You are enough, just as you are. It’s not all up to you. Breathe in My calming words and regain focus. Let the plans and outcomes be 100% left for Me to work out. Stay with Me long enough to absorb this truth until it gives you sound footing for what will unfold as you step into the day.

Things Can, Do, and Will Work Out

You fret about a lot of unnecessary things, picturing the worst-case scenario and bracing anxiously for the unknown.  I call you to address this habit and intentionally change your thought process. When you catch yourself building worries, – STOP. Remind yourself that I am a loving God who is taking care of you and has Good plans in store. Remind yourself you are loved, loving, and capable, and then say, “I trust you Lord. Things will work out in the end. They have before and they will again, because you are caring for Me and my situation.” Things can, do, and will work out. Choose to believe, and allow yourself to live life with greater ease and happiness.

Remove Your Hyper-Responsibility

I want you to work on removing yourself from hyper-responsibility. The world and all of its happenings are not yours to take care of; they belong to Me. Even though I appreciate your good intentions, I want to help you step down from feeling overly responsible for planning, preparing, and outcomes beyond your control. The healthier way to live is to acknowledge My Sovereignty while doing your part to contribute under My direction. Let Me help take the weight off your shoulders. Relax a little more; you don’t have to lead all of the time.
