F: I understand. A lot has been changing! You are staying home and away from other people to protect others. You need to figure out new routines and find spaces of quiet and rest. Your mind is focused on being faithful to all the safety rules regulations, and you are doing a lot of life online despite power outages. Then there is the flurry of activity developing protocols, etc. So much! I do love it that you take this seriously and make every effort to love and protect the vulnerable around you. I delight in your love and compassion!
Father, wow! You DO understand what's going on in my life. And, you see more good in me than I do right now. Help me to see the good, too. The other day I went to the grocery store to get something really important for work, plus a few other items. Honestly, I came back with only the other things. I forgot the main thing I needed! So annoying and time consuming, and I do not have any time to spare right now. You know, I snapped at somebody after that, forgive me, please!
F: I can see that you are stretched to the limit. Remember, I am with you. You don't need to keep it all under control. I invite you to ask me for help. I LOVE to give you good things! Actually, in the moment, I have more understanding and grace for you than you for yourself.
Hmm! So good to know that you judge me much less than I do myself. Maybe, I put too much pressure on myself. Help me to know your grace for myself more, so I can feel it, too, like in my gut!
F: Remember, there are other people around you, who may love to help. I invite you to ask for help. You can love and honor people by allowing them to help you. It helps them, too! It draws your hearts closer together, which I love to see!
Interesting idea! Helping others by allowing them to help me....I need to ponder that. Not my normal way of thinking. I LOVE to help others. Asking for help is not my M.O. Father. Please, help me! And, I would love closer relationships!
