Your mind is racing. Your heart beating fast. There are so many things, people, wanting your full attention. You struggle, falling under the weight of it. You call out to Me, “Which way do I go?”
Your responsibilities seem overwhelming at times. And you cry out, “Lord, can I just please have a few more hours in my day?” I have ordained each day, from the rising of the sun to it’s setting, to hold the time allotted for you to accomplish all that I’ve called you to do. “But Lord, what is it that you want me to do?”.
I want you to Breathe, to inhale My presence. It’s okay to rest. I give you My permission to slow down and cease from your striving.
Don’t be worried by the silence. Just listen for the whisper of My voice. It will come through loud and clear as you come away and rest.

Over the last week I have struggled to finish this series. The words just would not come. My heart was swelling, but my ears could not hear the Lord. I am in a personal time of reflection and going deeper in God. I have also been heavily burdened with the needs of those around me. I am tired, weary and feeling empty. I have been pouring out without being refilled. Sometimes when God begins to speak, He will draw us away into a season of rest.
This last post was very personal for my own heart. I am going to head the voice of the Lord and take some time to rest. Will I write? I will if the words come. But I will not strive. This must continue to be a place where His voice is heard above my own. Will you please pray for me as I walk through this season? He has drawn me here before and He will bring me through.
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat. (Mark 6:31)
Beloved, I cannot promise you that your journey will always be an easy one. But I can promise you that I will never leave you alone. I promise to be with you every step of the way, and I will bring you through it.
On those days when you feel overwhelmed, lean into me and trust me. Surrender it all into my hands and allow me to carry you until you have the strength to walk again.
Until tomorrow, Love Jesus

Remember those times when you were afraid and you longed for your daddy’s strong arms to hold you? Sometimes he did, and perhaps maybe he didn’t ever hold you the way you desired to be held, but I want you to know that I was there.
When you were afraid,
I held you until My peace overwhelmed you.
When you felt alone,
I held you until you could feel My Holy Spirit within you.
When you were confused,
I held you until clarity took over your mind.
When you were angry,
I held you until the tears fell and you felt My love.
When you felt hopeless,
I held you until hope arose in your heart.
But I didn’t just hold you then. I hold you now. Can you feel my strong arms around you? Do you feel loved and at peace?
On those days were you long for your daddy’s arms, reach up! I will pick you up and hold you.
And I will never let you go!
Until tomorrow, Love Jesus

Do you remember as a little girl how you would dance and twirl, longing for someone to pay attention to you? You longed to be cherished, treasured in the eyes of those whom you loved. I know there were often times when you felt unloved, uncared for, uncherished. You worked so hard to be seen, to be forever imprinted in the eyes of those whom you loved.
Can I tell you something? I cherished you then, and I cherish you now.
I take great delight in you. You bring me so much joy, and you don’t have to do anything.
My delight is in you, simply for who you are.
You are My Child.
You are My Daughter.
You are My Princess.
You are My Beloved One.
You are My Bride.
You captivate me when you glance My way, if even for a moment. I cannot take my eyes off of you.
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)
I want you to know today how much joy you bring to My heart. I will forever cherish you, simply because you are worth being cherished.
Until tomorrow, Jesus
