Take a Break from Obsessing

Whatever is burdening you, I urge you to set it down. Take a break from obsessing about it or trying to fix it. Put it next to you on the table and come sit with Me for a bit, instead. Relax in My Presence, – experiencing a return of calm and peacefulness. Even if this is only momentary before you scramble to pick it all back up, remember that you can take a break from fretting as often as you need to. I will be waiting, each time. 

Facing Tasks and Others

Look at how comfortable you are when you take time to sit in My Presence. All the cares of the world seem to wash away, at least briefly. I see your anxiety start to rise as you picture moving into your day, facing a multitude of tasks and encounters with others. This is why I teach you to cling to Me. Like a scared or overwhelmed toddler entering a new place, I will pick you up, comfort you, and carry you in… setting you down and urging you to go interact with others when I deem you are ready. You can look back over your shoulder at any time and be reassured that I am still here, – watching, present, and safe within reach. Go forth with confidence, knowing we are always together. You are Mine. 

The Great Healer

I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest. 

Walk With Trust for My Timing

Enter this day with eyes wide open to behold My creation with wonder. Don’t jump too far ahead with planning & worry. All that stress and teeth-grinding is not good for you. I want what is best for you! You’ll be able to accept this more readily as you walk with trust for My timing of all events. Enjoy what I place in your day, engaging all of your senses.

Work at Being Peaceful

It’s okay if you have to work at being peaceful. Your active mind tugs at your efforts, and the world calls you to constant distraction. This is why I teach things like “being present in the moment” and the importance of slowing down. Being at peace requires an intentional choice to pause and meet Me in the present. One glance My way and you will be better able to recognize that all is well. Peace results from a deep will to trust in Me. My Goodness overrides all else in the world. My love for you is real. 

I’ll Help Sort Things Out

I am not a dismissive God. The things you think about are not considered too trivial for My listening ear. Let Me love your tender heart and anxious thoughts today. Please don’t view Me as a critical judge of you. Instead, see Me as a compassionate, attentive, and accepting God. Only then can you begin to release the things that bind you. Using skillful hands, I’ll help sort things out. Let Me take over your worries about the hard stuff so that you can concentrate with peace of mind. Focus only on that which is placed before you today, letting Me take care of the rest. 

I Know What I’m Doing

Things that you are not even aware of are moving in your life. You can walk the straight and narrow in My footsteps while I orchestrate the outcomes, changing things before, beside and behind you. Keep your eyes fixed on Me without worrying about everything else. I know what I’m doing. Let Me be the agent of change instead of you trying to plan for or fix everything on your own. Concentrate on simple tasks one step at a time today. I’ll be busy with the rest, taking careful charge. Go in peace, loving others well and attending to that which I place in front of you today. 

Make Room for the Quiet

There is so much chatter around you: noise from electronics, social media, and people in your life. It is essential to your well-being to make room for the quiet. Only then can you find My help and perspective. Seek Me above all else. I will meet you in the quiet spaces, reassuring you of My great Love for you and My concern for your heart. Remove distraction as best as you can so that I can restore your peace of mind. I don’t want you cluttered or weighed down by needless noise and worries. Come to Me. I am with you and I love you. 

Latch Onto My Plans

I have more in store for you! Don’t give in to panic or distressed thoughts. Most of what you imagine as trouble spots never actually occur. Continue looking to Me and latch onto the concept that My plans in store for you are Good and GRAND. My love for you is immense, and I know what is needed to both build up and nurture your soul. Take comfort in Me and all that is ahead. 

You Will Get Through This

Clouds in life come and go, but My Light is always present, shining through and beyond them. You don’t have to be so weighed down by the clouds when they are present. Remember that the clouds are always in motion, moving on. Eventually you will feel the Light again. You will get through this. Trust My constant warmth, accessible even under cloud cover. Know that I am with you always, and no darkened experiences can take away our bond.
