Caring, not Worrying

There’s a difference between caring about things and worrying about them. I’ve designed you with personal preferences and abilities, with an intent for you to attend to things that matter to both of us. It’s okay to want good things and to value pieces of life that are precious to you, but stressing out about them and fretting over things that are not worth the investment of your energy or resources is not part of My plan. Excessive worry pulls you off track. Try releasing things that draw you away from the lifestyle of peace and joy I intended for you. Picture yourself living more at ease. Perhaps it is the things you think you most care about that you actually most need to let go of worrying about in order to find contentment.

Just Observe and Pay Attention

I am hard at work in your life. While it might be hard to see, I actually need you right where you are so I can accomplish what needs to be done in your life. Listen to how I beckon you to just observe and simply take notice of the workings going on around you. I may challenge you to see things differently based on what you observe or hear. Your only task for now is to merely pay attention, listening for My voice interpreting the message you most need to hear.

Perfection is a Misguided Aim

You are on the brink of falling into the old trap of beating yourself up inside your head. Today, choose life instead. Choose to love your flaws and imperfections, putting balance back into perspective as you see how much your Goodness outshines the rest. I love and behold you just as you are, with both sides included. Seeking perfection and expecting that of yourself is a misguided aim. Beloved, seek Me and My unconditional adoration of you as My creation. Certainly I want you to do your best, putting kindness, mindfulness, and intentionality behind all your actions, but I don’t want or expect perfection. Mistakes happen. Brush away the dark thoughts and find joy in the with-God life I intend for you.

Listen with an Intent to Understand

Be curious about all I have in store for you today. Instead of making judgements about those you encounter, listen with an intent to better understand and appreciate what they are sharing with you. Throw any hint of judgementalism to the wayside, including your own self-criticism inside your head. Allow yourself to be more at ease by accepting your own contribution as being worthy of attention and being enough for what is needed in the moment. All is well. You can trust that My hand is active in and all around your life.

Your Uniqueness Reaches Others

I wish you would stop being so critical of yourself. I created you just as you are so that your uniqueness reaches others. I do My best work in and through you when you stop judging yourself internally and follow your God-given instincts. Speak when you feel urged to; share when I nudge you; listen with ears that ear; notice and attend to others with eyes that see. You are good at all of this because of how I made you and because of your faith and trust in how I work within you. I will bless your encounters with others when you intentionally choose to trust your well-being.

Cling to Me

Cling to Me as we move through life today, like an infant latches on to its parent. I will nurture, teach, feed, protect, and instruct you. This kind of dependency may feel foreign in your adult world, but it is absolutely necessary if you are to live the with-God life intended for you. It is simpler than the complex lifestyle adopted by those striving to be so independent. Picture Me carrying and helping you as you address challenges, knowing you don’t have to brace yourself to handle it all alone. Your smallness and dependence on Me does not equate with insignificance. Cling to Me, child, the One who loves you completely.

Driven with Excessive Responsibility

I call you to attend to certain tasks today, but this is never meant to be heard as a hard task-master. I call out with cries of love for you! How much I desire for you to first and foremost hear My bid for your loving gaze in return. You are so hard on yourself, – so driven with excessive responsibility for many things. As you learn to rely on me, your Maker and the great artist designing your life, you begin to comprehend how My capacity is greater than your needs. Turn to Me and find me Present at all times, and lean on Me to discover the strength and sustenance you need to complete all that is on your plate. Come away with My peace and joy ignited in your spirit.

Bound for Greatness

You are bound for greatness. Do not take this message lightly. I have been preparing you through a lifetime of activities, experiences, and connections combined with the ways you’ve been personally shedding other layers to make you more in My likeness. I in you, you in Me. Don’t be frightened by this call. You already know how I equip you daily and you’ve seen doors open and paths made ready. You know it is coming. Yet, you also know to wait and be ready. Prepare the room with great joy and anticipation, for there will be much to be celebrated. Rest assured that I have great plans for you.

Addressing Habits of Negative Self-Talk

The pressures of life plus poor habits of negative self-talk have eroded the beautiful Light I placed in you. It’s time to address those habits and feed your mind My words instead: you are loved! Start from that basic, undeniable truth and work on softening all of the hard edges that have crusted over this core belief. My Light within you is not meant to be covered. Your innate ability to love and be loved is not meant to be stifled. Let’s scrape, sand, and strip off the corrosion so that when you hear My voice, firm and affirming, it resounds with hope and clarity. See how this change in perspective peels away stress, hurt feelings, and negative thoughts, simply by believing in yourself and in Me.

Your True Worth

Let’s talk about your value and worth. You tie it to so many unpredictable variables that are fragile, flawed, and ultimately unsupportive. The opinions of others are heavily tainted by their own experiences and opinions, which most of the time has nothing to do with you. The brief moments where you may be acknowledged by or shown appreciation from others will never sustain your inherent sense of being valued. It’s only by looking into My loving gaze that you can see and hold on to your true worth. Turn to Me often to see what “unconditional” means, and allow My tender Presence to heal your bruised ego. I love you just as you are, and you are truly precious cargo that I carry with Me. I deem to protect and treasure you always.
