Hallelujah! Made it to another Friday night! There were times this week that I was not sure that was possible but here we are. Thank you for working everything out all week God. There were so many challenges and issues and problems and bad news; but you turned them in to opportunities, non-issues, solutions and good news. Only my God can do that!
Now, I sit here tonight and it seems like I have a lot of small decisions to make. There are a lot of small things that I don't really want to do but feel like I should. I feel like I might be missing out on a hidden opportunity or might be hurting people's feelings if I don't do it. All of the little things are weighing on me tonight God.
I pray and ask for your guidance and wisdom in all things God. I pray for guidance in even in the little things. You know everything so you know which of these things are things I need to do (either for someone else's sake or my own) and which are ok to say no to. Show me the difference please God.
What God Said Tonight:
'Shoulds' are really detrimental to you. There is a whole world of 'shoulds' and all they really do is make you feel rotten about yourself. I am not a God that wants you to feel rotten about yourself. I am a God who wants you to know who you are in me. I want you to know that you are a Royal Priesthood. I want you to know that you are a child of the most High God. I want you to know that your choices, your actions are all woven into the full tapestry and plan that I have for the Universe.
You are an integral part of what I am doing. Your triumphs and your failures. Your kindness and your errors.
I will guide you. I will help you. But I will do it with a sense of peace, not with guilt. I will not tell you about what you should do. I will show you the path that leads to your greatest reward in the end. I will show the opportunities I have created for you. I will give the peace to know that you are choosing those things that I want for you in your life.
I will not condemn you. I will not shame you. I will not saddle you with 'shoulds.'
Love you sweet child.
