Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

Dear child, it’s easy to get so caught up in do­ing that you lose sight of be­ing. It’s easy to get so com­mit­ted to your pur­pose in life that you lose sight of the mean­ing in life. The cul­ture you’re im­mersed in el­e­vates worldly ac­com­plish­ments above all other things, so it’s no won­der that you’re too stressed to be kind.

The so­lu­tion:

Sim­ply stop and ground your­self in

Me, in the right now.

Even as you hold this book, lis­ten…what do you hear? Are the birds singing? Is your air con­di­tioner hum­ming? Look…what do you see? Is there sun­light play­ing on the floor? Can you catch a glimpse of blue sky? Feel what’s touch­ing your skin. Smell what’s float­ing in the air. Just soak in what’s all around you right now as though your Fa­ther’s cre­ation is a spa that ex­ists only to de­light your senses.

As you ground your­self in the right here, right now, draw up the love that you have in your heart for Me and en­vi­sion send­ing it to Me on a beam of light. Feel your spirit lift as the Holy Spirit brings you My ten­der feel­ings for you. Al­low your­self to bathe in this feel­ing: Let it wash over you, into you and around you, filling your heart to over­flow­ing. Rest here for as long as you can as of­ten as you can, and I prom­ise you, your ir­ri­ta­tion with oth­ers will fall away like an un­nec­es­sary cloak.

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gen­tle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My bur­den is light.” —Je­sus to the crowd,

Matthew 11:29–30 NKJV
