Thank you for giving everything up to Me. I am ready to catch you and help you float, trusting in Me.  

Today is a new day. Face it with courage, optimism and joy: that word I always give you, JOY. Let it permeate your soul with the knowledge of My love and care for you.

Each step you take today I will be with you, to guide you. 

Please take time to think about Me. I am never more than a whisper away.  

Shhh. Listen to the sound of spring outside your window. Do you hear birds? They are calling out My name in praise. I love and care for them, too. I feed and clothe them, and they trust Me. Why can’t you be like them?  

Just KNOW, that I will always be there to face whatever challenges this life brings. And there are many things ahead of you I wish you wouldn’t have to go through, but I am there to catch you. I will never let you go alone.

Just grab My hand and walk with Me across the sand. It can be that real…..if you let it.

“This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing?”

Matthew 6:25 TPT

May 26

You are feeling My joy today. Bask in it. 

It is My greatest longing to be close to you and to give you My joy and peace.

Let it surround you today as you go about your daily activities. Let My presence permeate your very soul.  

I AM WITH YOU, now, always and forever.

Today, I want you to grow more in the knowledge of Me. Study My Word. Keep your favorite verses near you and check on them often. This is how I communicate and reassure you.

Study My Word in depth to unlock the deep horizons of My love. You know I love and care for you, but go deeper.  

Grow in Me, then our relationship will go to the next level.

There is no level to My love, just a stronger sense of My presence.

I am with you now and always. Breathe a deep breath and let it out slowly knowing I will always watch over you.  

Go to the next level with Me.

“Yes, cry out for comprehension and intercede for insight. For if you keep seeking it like a man would seek for sterling silver, searching in hidden places for cherished treasure, then you will discover the fear of the Lord and find the true knowledge of God.”

Proverbs 2:3-5 TPT

May 25

These problems you have are requiring your close presence with Me. Reach out your hand and I will take it and walk with you through them.

I am a God of love. Such love you will never understand until I hold you securely in My presence.

Every moment of the day think of Me, and I will guide you through all your decisions and problems. You have a ready helper in Me that you just need to call out for, because I am ALWAYS BY YOUR SIDE.

Face today with the challenges that it brings, with joy and love and anticipation of the future that I have planned for you. Encourage each other with words of praise. Never forget to take time to tell someone you love or care for them.  

Others can feel and sense My presence in you.

What joy we will share when you stand face to face with Me! This life, with all it’s problems will be over, and we can rejoice in a future together.                          

Slip your hand into Mine now and let’s walk through the day.

““Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;”

Deuteronomy 7:9 NKJV

May 24

You are scared and discouraged now. I can feel it.  

Don’t give up. I have an answer for you. Just wait, and trust in Me.  

I long to give you the answers for the future that you so desire, but it is not in My plan to have that happen. You have to trust Me in that. Knowing would ruin everything for you. You would trust in the knowledge of the future, not in Me.

Yesterday I told you to lean back and let go, like you are floating, and I will catch you. Do it today again. 

Close your eyes, think of Me. Imagine Me next to you, holding your hand. I will guide your every move today, if you accept it.  

Are you ready? Close your eyes. Imagine it. Reach out and touch Me. I am with My beloved child.  

You will only understand this love when you get to Heaven to see Me face to face. Until then, just float.

“Now may God, the fountain of hope, fill you to overflowing with uncontainable joy and perfect peace as you trust in Him. And may the power of the Holy Spirit continually surround your life with His super-abundance until you radiate with hope!”

Romans 15:13 TPT

May 23

I long to hold you and comfort you. Your need of Me is what I want to know and hear. 

I am with you today. I am with you tomorrow. I am with you always.  

But take one step at a time. You are worried about so much. Take today and deal with it today. Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Be assured that I will be there to guide and comfort you every step of the way.

Trust in Me. 

Lean into My arms and let go. Close your eyes and imagine yourself floating. I am holding you up. You are totally in My care. Just let go, and I will take care of you.

Face the day with joy: the joy of My salvation, the joy of My love, the joy of communion with Me.  

How beloved you are to Me!

Now, go and have joy. The day is Mine to worry about!

“Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”

Matthew 6:34 TPT

May 21

I will never leave you behind, My child. I have plans for you which I am revealing slowly. If I showed you the whole picture, you would not be willing to go the difficult learning route I need to send you on to get there.

It comes back to trust. Trust in Me as a total, fulfilling Being. Trust that I am everything and every One you need. You may think you want something different, but I know the best way for you.

My Son is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to Me except through Him.When you know Him you know the peace that passes all understanding. You know the love that knows no bounds and you feel the trust I have asked you to live your life with.

This walk of faith is easy, beloved one. Not easy in terms of this world, but easy because you already know the outcome. The overwhelming feeling of pain and hardship you are facing is just a drop of what Jesus went through for you.  

It was very personal to Him. He wanted you by His side.

So never fear that I will count you as a loss, or not important enough to move a mountain for!  

Reach out and take My hand. I will never leave you behind.

“In fact, you were called to live this way, because Christ also suffered in your place, leaving you His example for you to follow.”

1 Peter 2:21 TPT

May 20

Let today carry with it the joy of your salvation. In moments of thought, of conversation, come back to our relationship and the price that was paid for it. Never forget that it did not come free. 

There is nothing more precious to Me.

Come and lay your head on My shoulder and let Me tell you stories of long ago; stories that will inspire you to live strong with courage and fortitude; stories found in the scriptures of David, of Moses, of Rahab, of Mary. The Bible is full of real-life stories of pure, raw adventure.

Your salvation is not dependent on knowing those stories. Your salvation is dependent on one thing: Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection, but reading these stories will inspire you to walk similar lives of valor, all made possible because they had a relationship with Me. 

I guided and encouraged them, just as I do you, every moment of every day.

Take joy in that knowledge and join Me in the great adventure of being one with Me.

“Whatever was written beforehand is meant to instruct us in how to live. The Scriptures impart to us encouragement and inspiration so that we can live in hope and endure all things.”

Romans 15:4 TPT

May 19

There are times when I sense you doubting My existence, even when I have poured so much love into you. When bad things happen in the world, or you don’t understand the personal pain you are going through, you wonder if I am really real.

I AM real, My love. There is nothing more real.

The drop of dew on your cheek, is it real?  The rumbling of thunder, is it real? These are things that are part of your world yet you can’t hold them in your hands. I am like that. 

I live and move in another sense, one in which you can be more aware of the more you spend time with Me. When you are in My presence I can reveal who I am. I can imbue you with My attributes.

There is a world of pain out there that I am deep in the midst of. Come to Me with your pain, beloved one. Let Me show you My existence. Let Me wrap My arms around you and hold you until the pain is gone, until you are strong enough to stand on your own again.

One day you will know why, My love. One day. Until that time, come into My presence by spending time with Me.  

I will come as close as you let Me. Now and forever.

“Your glorious throne rests on a foundation of righteousness and just verdicts. Grace and truth are the attendants who go before You. O Lord, how blessed are the people who know the triumphant shout, for they walk in the radiance of Your presence.”

Psalms 89:14-15 TPT

May 18

Where do you start? You start with Me. Everything starts with Me.  

From the beginning of creation and before I am, I was, and I will continue to be forever. And I never waiver. I was the same then as I am now.

I am love so intense you cannot behold My real presence.What I am presenting to you is but a shadow of Who I am.

I am the north, the south, the east, the west. There is nowhere you can go that I will not be found.  Your world is finite and it is hard to understand that concept, but one day you will see all, and understand all. When you see Me face to face you will feel love so intense your whole body will be transformed into light.

So where do you start? With Me, now and always. I am your forever.

Just take one step towards Me…just a baby step of faith. I will do the rest.

“My deep need calls out to the deep kindness of Your love. Your waterfall of weeping sent waves of sorrow over my soul, carrying me away, cascading over me like a thundering cataract.”

Psalms 42:7 TPT

May 17

You do not have to be a worldly wise man to be a strong soldier for Me, to lead in the fight of good against evil. You just need a simple relationship with Me.  

I need you to have faith like a child, trusting Me at every turn even though you don’t understand much of the time why you have to be going through what you are.  

Come to Me with faith.With trust.

There are those who lash out in anger towards Me when difficulties arise. If they could only know how much it hurts Me when that happens. Don’t they know I will be with them? That all things will work out together for good?

Or they might be angry at Me that their loved one died. I cried with them when they hurt, when they grieved. I cried because of their pain, yet they were angry at Me because I allowed it to happen.

It is My desire that all should live everlasting lives filled with joy and peace. And one day that will be the case, but for now, while the saga in this evil world plays out, learn to place your childlike faith in Me. 

With your eyes fixed on Me, just trust. Lay back in the water and float with your eyes closed,  knowing, feeling, sensing, that I am with you, in you, all around you. And you are with Me.

Faith like a child is the greatest wisdom in the world.

Jesus overheard them and said, “I want little children to come to Me, so never interfere with them when they want to come, for heaven’s kingdom realm is composed of beloved ones like these! Listen to this truth: No one will enter the kingdom realm of heaven unless he becomes like one of these!”

Matthew 19:14 TPT
