I am familiar with all the places you hurt and all the things that stir up your anxiety. Come to Me anyway, even though things don’t feel great all the time. Come to Me and find that just for a moment, perhaps, all feels well and manageable. Allow that glimmer of hope to squeak through the cracks of those hard, cold walls of pain or fear. Whisper this truth: I am with you in all things. Nothing will be too much to bear. Let Me comfort you with an attentive reassurance that you are never, ever alone in your suffering.

You are God’s beloved, – a child of God, – so, believe it. Knowing this and trusting Me in this truth are two different things, but both are equally important. To know is to comprehend deep within, ingesting the words and shedding light on negative thought habits that try to tell you otherwise. God shows favor and delight in you, with great affection. Trusting this truth is taking all of this to the next level by putting into action self-care, self-confidence, and self-acceptance. When you trust that you are loved, defensiveness and false pretenses go down and fade away so the real you can shine without feeling daunted. Show love to yourself and this will radiate out, helping you to love others with ease, insight, and patience. Grasp what it feels like to know and trust God’s love for you.

Relax your forehead, face, and jaw. You carry so much tension at times, unaware of how hard you are striving and concentrating. Remember, you can release the planning into My capable hands for a minute and actually find a sense of calm and peace descend. Just close your eyes for a moment and breathe deeply, perhaps telling yourself “It’s okay. I can trust God to help work it all out.” You CAN trust Me; this is an absolute truth. I do so love you and am caring for every detail and concern in your life.

You can rely on Me. No matter what you are facing today or in the days ahead, I am right there with you. Grasp My hand and hold tight to steady yourself instead of giving in to old habits of anxiety and worry. I want happiness for you, starting with calming reassurance. Anxiety stems from mistakenly thinking you won’t have whatever it takes to move through life’s experiences, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. I will equip and sustain you with more than enough for what you need. Trust Me in this truth and in My love for you, which is always there to steady you.

Every now and then I see your insecurities cropping up. In deep places, old scars and messages trick you back into thinking you aren’t good enough for love, attention, security, or good gifts. This couldn’t be further from the truth. You are loved and valued by many, and most importantly, by Me. It is My heart toward you that is good and kind, and I want to lavish you with love. Don’t let your “worthiness” be tainted wrongly by the broken world. Today, allow yourself to believe in your value not only through what you bring to the table, but also by the love you so deservingly are sent. Receive it in full, with no strings attached.

I know your innate truth and worth. Deep inside you are the epitome of compassion. It’s because you care so deeply about others that you also get so worked up at times. Let’s work on channeling this passion for helping others with their wellbeing into more constructive focus. You don’t have to be working harder than them. Work on recognizing when you are doing so, trying to control or channel other’s decision-making. Release those who are simply unable or not ready to make better choices on their own. I know how disappointing this is for you to watch, and how you agonize over others poor life management, but hand your disappointment and your wishes for them over to Me. Trust Me to work on it while you take a break to recuperate. You can trust My loving oversight of all things, releasing the pressure to fix it yourself.

All is well. Even in times that feel chaotic and busy, this can still be a foundational truth. The true bottom line is that I am in control, and I make all things work together unto Good. Sometimes you have to move over and let Me drive, though. Life could be easier for you if you allowed yourself to rest comfortably in My passenger seat. Don’t be mistaken by thinking you have to plan for and control everything all the time. Try the ride from the passenger seat today and see what I mean.

When you find yourself in a place where you are super worked up about something, it is probably time to step back. Remove yourself and check your thoughts to see if you are being tripped up by thinking “it’s all up to me” to handle or fix or address. That simply isn’t true. I am your God. I am sovereign over all things. Step back until you can see and be reminded of this deep truth: that as your God, I am with you and looking out for you. Maybe I only need you to show up and offer your presence, because I’ll handle the rest. Leave any “fixing” up to My capable hands. I want you to find peace again, not living agitatedly with anxious and stress-filled approaches. Step back, breathe, and be calmed by how I am at work in your life.

Let Me inspire you. If you linger at My table long enough, you’ll feel the nudges I am trying to send. You will hear, feel, and know when it is time to move vs. when you need to be still. When to reach out and connect vs. when to hole up and recover. How to be the helper vs. when to ask for help. For now, be the encourager I created you to be. This starts by knowing you are enough, just as you are. Love and affirm all the intricate truths and facets of yourself. You are beautiful to Me just as you are, and I have so much still in store for you. You can be excited about that!

Concentrate on being My Light today: My partner, – with light-hearted humor, a bright smile, and a warm, welcoming, engaging nature. That draws people in for more and improves interactions. Being authentically light-filled promotes healing and wellness. You are truly an encourager, so just relax and forget about worrying if you are making a good impression. I already know you’ll be great. Rely on My truthful estimation of who you are and what you are capable of.
