Thought to share: I AM taking care of you. I know it’s hard to believe when life is difficult or painful. Instead of questioning ME, fall into MY arms and let ME hold you. Let ME lift the weight of the world from your shoulders and soothe your weary soul. As you rest with ME, you will be able to see how perfectly I AM caring for you. In MY arms, you’ll see with clarity how perfect MY timing is and how good MY plans are. Take the time to let ME hold you; it’s worth the investment.

Matthew 6:30 (NLT) And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

Matthew 11: 28-30 (Msg) Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with Me and work with Me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

1Peter 5:7 (TPT) Pour out all your worries and stress upon Him and leave them there, for He always tenderly cares for you.

Psalm 55:22 (NLT) Give your burdens to the LORDand He will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

Thought to share: Let go of the chaos swirling around in your mind and let ME be the center of your thoughts. I know it’s difficult when so many questions need answers and dozens of problems need solutions. But, if you’ll intentionally place ME in the center of your thoughts, the chaos will subside and you can hear MY voice in the stillness. You will hear ME whisper words of encouragement and comfort as I assure you I have everything you need.

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT) You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You,  all whose thoughts are fixed on You!

Philippians 4:6-7 (TPT) Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.

Thought to share: I know it seems “responsible” to tackle problem solving. That it’s the “right” thing to do to constantly look at your situation from every angle and determine how you should “fix” it. You feel like it’s your job to think through every scenario and calculate the risk before you can make a good decision. And, if you don’t – then who will? But the reality is, you overwhelm yourself when you do this. Because I AM the Alpha and Omega, I see the beginning from the end and have mapped out a plan that will lead you deeper into MY goodness. So give your mind a break. Look at ME and listen to MY heart. I’ll tell you exactly what you need to know every step of the way.

Revelation 22:13 (NLT) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Matthew 7:11 (TPT)  If you, imperfect as you are, know how to lovingly take care of your children and give them what’s best, how much more ready is your heavenly Father to give wonderful gifts to those who ask Him?

Thought to share: There is no equivalent to MY peace. Nothing can match it or stand against it. There isn’t a bottle that can take off the edge and calm your heart like MY peace can. No substance that can give you rest like MY peace does. No human who can silence anxiety like MY peace will. MY peace has the ability to cocoon you, sheltering you from the most violent of storms. It is not fragile or delicate, but is like an impenetrable fortress, keeping you secure. It runs deep and wide, swallowing your greatest fears and worries whole. And it is MY gift to you. You need only receive.

John 14:27 (NLT) I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. ~ Jesus

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)  Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)  Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Thought to share: I know you think it’s a mess. It can’t be fixed. It’s useless. No life left in it. It’s beyond restoration. But nothing is impossible with ME. I make all things new. I can revive your desert places and breath life to those dead things. Invite ME in. Let ME breath life into it. Let ME renew your hope. And soon you’ll find beauty rising from the ashes.

Matthew 19:26 (NLT) Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”

Psalm 107:35 (TPT) But He also can turn a barren wilderness into an oasis with water!
    He can make springs flow into desert lands

Isaiah 43:19 (Msg) Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,  rivers in the badlands.

Ezekiel 37:1-10 (NLT) The LORD took hold of me, and I was carried away by the Spirit of the LORD to a valley filled with bones. He led me all around among the bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground and were completely dried out.  Then He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?”

“O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.”

Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord!  This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!  I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”

So I spoke this message, just as He told me. Suddenly as I spoke, there was a rattling noise all across the valley. The bones of each body came together and attached themselves as complete skeletons. Then as I watched, muscles and flesh formed over the bones. Then skin formed to cover their bodies, but they still had no breath in them.

Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’”

So I spoke the message as He commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army.
