Quiet your heart and quiet your mind and let me speak to you what’s on my heart for you today. Let me share the things that offer a blessing to your life. What has control of your mind? What thoughts continually plague you? What keeps your mind up at night? Can it be you haven’t fully given everything over to me? What holds you back from passing these things over to me to carry for you? I am greater than your mind can imagine, yet you still do not trust me fully. What part of these issues do you think I cannot handle? You fall into a pattern of thinking created by the enemy to keep you in a loop of constant worry and fret. This is not how I designed you – carrying unnecessary burdens like that.
You were made in my image. Crafted and created by my will. I chose you to come to me and surrender everything to me. I want and desire for you to come to me and give me the things that weigh you down, yet you keep taking them back from me and choosing to worry and frown. You haven’t taken the time to get to fully know me just yet and understand my ability to handle each and every situation that comes at you. Know me, pursue me, and come to see me maybe for the first time. Let me open your eyes to things you’ve never realized before. I am for you and I love to reach out and take your hand and lead you into prosperous thinking.
Take your rest in me. Come to me on bended knee and let me carry each and every burden. This is key to becoming one with me and living a surrendered life to me. Taking things back into your own hands to handle shows your lack of faith and trust in me. If you’ve surrendered your whole life to me for all eternity, don’t you think I should be able to handle these things for you?
Lay these things at my feet and leave them here with me and see if I will not change these circumstances for you and for my glory. Let me cover your mind with my peace and with my clarity and I will show you the way to perfect serenity in me. Shut off the world and its way of thinking. Who told you, you were supposed to think like this in the first place? It didn’t come from me, but from your enemy. See things as I do and not as the world is teaching you. Let me shape your mind and heart and free you from this tangled thinking.
1 Peter 5:6-7 New Century Version
6 Be humble under God’s powerful hand so he will lift you up when the right time comes. 7 Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you.
Proverbs 12:25 New King James Version
25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
But a good word makes it glad.
Psalm 119:10 The Voice Translation
10 I have pursued You with my whole heart;
do not let me stray from Your commands.
Philippians 4:6-7 New Living Translation
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 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.
Colossians 3:15 New International Version
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
