Let Me soothe your soul. Take in deep breaths, choosing to mentally inhale trust and exhale needless worry. No matter what happens, I’ll help see you through. Picture your current challenges as if they are packaged in a brown box, attended to by you for a little while. Deliver each one on to Me so I can ship them off labelled “handled with care”. I do care about you and your every concern. I’ll get you through safely and securely.
I can tell when you are wrestling with thoughts and emotions that consume more energy and attention than they deserve. Shrug those worries off as much as you can by focusing on My way of loving. Learn to leave the past in the past; don’t keep mulling it over. The more you can live conscious of My Presence in the present and My plan to work all things together for Good, the more relaxed and focused you will become. Ask Me what needs to happen today and trust Me to show you, minute by minute. Come to Me all you who are weary and find life full of burdens; I will give you rest from your worries.
Don’t get caught up in trying to imagine everything and work it all out in your head. I don’t work that way. Instead, let the worries of today fall away for a second as you face Me in your mind. Take a deep breath and continue to seek My face. You don’t have to fear what I’m going to say. My words are always of reassurance. You are okay – and loved. I’m right here beside you and am never going to leave your side. Let’s step into today together, trusting that I’ve made you ready and equipped you for any tasks or encounters that take place. I can and will help you focus, giving you right words to say when the time comes. You can be brave with Me at your side.
You are braver than you think or feel today. Rise up, throwing reservation to the wind. Step up to the plate to take your turn at bat. Despite nervousness, insecurity, and worry, you can take a full swing at whatever is thrown your way. I will orchestrate the connection between your effort and My outcomes; you just need to swing, then head to first base. One step at a time, one day at a time. Every day doesn’t have to be a home run. You will find life way more manageable if you just concentrate on one base at a time, knowing you are in My league and I’m cheering you on as a wise, trustworthy Coach.
See the calm; picture it in your mind. Feel the calm knocking ever so gently. Open the door and greet it, allowing calmness to come in and fill every space in your heart and home. Be the calm; breathe it in and choose to live with it ruling your pace, your mind, and your actions. It’s not ridiculous to try this and believe in My capacity to bring you My Peace. I make all things possible. With the help of My Grace, you can be peace-filled. I love you and I want this for you.
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.
