Simplicity is where it’s at. As you de-clutter your surroundings and your head, you make room for you and I to be together more. When thoughts are clouding your mind and decision-making feels super challenging, picture yourself getting rid of them one by one. Take out each worry and each plan, reviewing them before Me and examining what needs to be kept and what can be discarded. Try ridding yourself of at least one thing today, physically or spiritually. Put time with Me back in it’s place. As you make room for My Presence and stay awhile with Me, peace will fill the gaps.
“Timing is everything”. My timing is mystical. I’m not random with My purpose, though. Sometimes I nudge you boldly into action, and other times I hold you back from change until I know you are ready. The events in your life may also be created for the benefit of OTHERS, not necessarily your own. Take joy in trusting My divine crafting of your life events. Try not to disdain your circumstances. I know what I am doing, and there will be benefit for you in due time.
I place My holy hand upon you in this day. You are called, chosen, and ready because you are My child. Don’t be intimidated by anything I ask of you – in this day or the next. I wouldn’t call you to anything that I won’t equally equip you for. Don’t get preoccupied with tomorrow. Pull in the reigns of your mind for the tasks of this day only. The more you practice this skill, the better your capacity to trust Me will be refined. See that what I am providing is plenty, and be thankful.
Old presumptions and misguided worries do not have to drive you anymore. Don’t give in to those anxious habits, imagining things going wrong or assuming you are being judged critically. Everything is not going to fall apart. Instead, try cutting back on all the texting and social media that bombard you with messages. Live in a quieter space where you can regain awareness of Me again. You will find contentment and inner peace this way, derived from My guidance and Light within.
I know it feels like there is never enough time. Countless tasks, chores, activities. The days feel too short and the stress load too much to handle. Let Me be the Keeper of your time. Hold the lists before Me, trusting that I can give you the energy and resources to get things done, one at a time. Know that I nourish you when you build in time for rest and play. Trust My God-clock, doling things in right measure and pacing you through life until the work of My kingdom is complete. I promise to not burn you out because I desire your well-being. It’s OK to not finish everything on the list today. Work on not being so fearful of getting it all done. Release those worries to Me, your Time-Keeper.
You are so busy. There is a lot spinning around in that head of yours. I want you to put on the brakes and slow down, coming to a stop directly in front of Me. I call you to calmer ways. Once you yield to Me, you will see that all of your obsessive planning is unnecessary. I can and will take care of you, – ALWAYS. Use your ability to trust Me and hand over your worried frenzy. Take time at the stoplight to relax and re-focus. I’ve got this.
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.
Your mind is foggy and weighed down. Picture Me instead. Focus your thoughts on an image of Me standing lovingly in front of you, inviting you in to the day as I put my arm around your shoulder and guide you through each doorway. You have no idea what’s in store, but I do. Let’s head into the unknown together with peaceful and even joyful anticipation of all we will encounter.
Go ahead -imagine big things! Don’t forget to include Me in that vision, walking side by side with you and lighting the path with My glory. I create big things and have so much intended for you. Do you believe this? You must alter old habits of worry and leave anxiety in the past. The better you get at releasing your worries, concerns, and hurts to Me, the calmer and more receptive you will be to the Good I have prepared. Turn your whole life over to Me, allowing Me to guide the plan as I see fit. Be open to change, trusting Me to be lovingly in charge of it all.
This is the season of Peace. My way is meant to be gentle, kind, and considerate. So much energy is wasted on imagined conversations or encounters with others, anxiously preparing responses in advance. Let Me handle that for you. You don’t have to be on the defensive with Me in your thoughts. Trust Me to be present in all your interactions with others, allowing My calmness to supersede all else. You can brush off the remains of anger and hurt others caused you or may try to push onto you, knowing it isn’t yours to fix. Show compassion, and leave the rest up to Me to address.
