I know you. I see you questioning your credibility and your ability to carry out My plan for you. I am your Creator, – the One who designed you to bring about good things in the world by My Grace. You don’t have to underestimate what you are capable of when you pair your willingness with My will. You can even face criticism without letting it slay you. I will strengthen you so that other’s negative comments don’t wear you down. Wish love upon the haters, and remember that love and Light dominate darkness, always. Don’t let others or self-doubt get you down. If God is for you, who can be against?
You can avoid preoccupation with future things. Don’t let yourself get tripped up with obsessive thoughts about situations and results that may never actually occur. Stay close to Me, your Shepherd. I know what is over the horizon. Let Me lead you on steady paths. Please, don’t try to race ahead in your thoughts or actions. You’ll only waste precious energy and create needless worry for yourself. Enjoy resting at My feet for a while. Allow Me to take over the planning for tomorrow, and the day after that. Enjoy the scenery of where I have brought you to today.
All around you change is happening. Don’t be afraid of this; I plan it for Good. Stop all of your own attempts at planning or controlling and release yourself fully into My care arrangements specifically designed for you. By allowing changes to unfold with acceptance on your part, the way will be easier and more clear to see. Find peace as you practice this level of trust in Me.
The world measures by temporal things: comforts, wants, and concerns, – things that fade or do not sustain you. Find contentment right where you are, with no more and no less than you need.

In your areas of weakness, I am strong. In your flaws, I am present to help guide you onto higher ground, with sure footing. The act of humbling yourself means that in areas where you do not have mastery or self-control, you can recognize the need for My help and choose to allow Me to work on your troubles with you. I help best if you posture yourself in such a way that submits to My will and My design for you, which is perfect. The with-God life requires a humble stance with daily acknowledgement of your need for Me. Being humble doesn’t mean beating yourself up or lacking in esteem. You can have confidence as you learn to lean on Me and live off of My Grace, given freely to you. I know you well and love you even with flaws and imperfections. Show your need for Me so that I can give you your daily bread, sufficient to meet all your needs.
You are more loved than you may realize. The tiniest slights and offenses that happen in daily life can skew your recognition of how likable you are. Don’t let these tiny, false claims get to you. Any thought that you are somehow unworthy of attention is a lie. I am the One who knows you and loves you. Ultimately, this is all that matters- but I know how you long to be close to others and not excluded or misjudged. For now, let Me in to soothe the hurt and provide reassurance. Confidence will return as you trust Me with your relationships. Ask Me to help remove any defensiveness from you so that others can draw closer. It’s OK to be vulnerable now and then.
The world is full of vain pursuits of perfection. It’s so easy to be distracted by appearances and things other than My design or purpose for you. What catches the eye is not always what is essential to truly living well. Beware of eye-catchers that seek to become idols swaying you from healthier living and true pursuits. Look for My Guidance as I send genuine opportunities to satisfy your hunger for passion, recognition, and acceptance. Seek to hear My call to you at all times and look for opportunities to do what comes naturally to you. You don’t have to manufacture ways to be noticed in order to be pleasing in My sight.
Many people struggle to accept their worthiness of My unconditional love. I will move mountains to show how much I desire to be with you and in you.

Push your mountains of worries, doubt, and distractions to one side and let’s meet in the middle of the ravine, basking in Light and Love for a while. Weep with Me. Release your cares fully to Me because I understand. You needn’t be ashamed of your tears. Know that I understand your sadness and humility as well as your awe, then allow My gentle touch on your whole life in praise and gratitude today.
