Chip Away at that Self-Critical Veneer

Keep listening. Listen harder, – deeper, – until the truth comes piercing through. My love for you craves to break down the walls your inner critic has built up, breaking through the shame, guilt, and regrets. The past is in the past. Let’s chip away at that self-critical veneer until you find yourself at peace within. Once you can accept and embrace yourself as someone worthy of attention, kindness, and love, you will be more at ease around and accepting toward others. Anxiety will melt away. You can make amends as needed, but you also don’t have to spend your life being so apologetic all the time. Seek peace and follow after it by assuming a posture of self-acceptance.

I Will Care for You Forever

Listen to Me: while not every day and moment may feel inspired, I have an important message for you. You can trust Me because I love you and I will care for you forever! There are no gaps in time when I’m not attending to you, or lapses as if I’ve gone away. Though you may mistakenly feel alone and floundering occasionally, I am fully present even then. Imagine how much more calm and confidently you would handle difficulties if you were only aware of My loving Presence supporting and guiding you at all times. It is difficult to keep that kind of awareness up 100% of the time, so do what you can to remind yourself to look up, child. I am with you and for you, ALWAYS.

Be Still and Small

Be still and small today. It’s okay to not be “big” and grown-up all the time. Dependence on Me is a good thing! Today, try seeing life through the eyes of a child – open with wonder and amazement at all things around you. Anticipate joy. Picture good things about to happen as you spend your day with Me. You have no idea what I have in store for you; let Me surprise you! Throw cynicism out the door and be open to new things.

I Will Not Drop You

I know your residual fears and I see those worries cropping up in your head. What I desire most is for you to trust that I am reliable, and I am here for you. I will not drop you. I never leave your side. I also don’t inflict these challenges on you. Look for My loving face again, reminded of the love and joy we once had when you recognized and relied upon My attentive care. Take your anxiety and cast it upon Me. Walk just one step at a time, reassured I will take care of everything in due time. Choose belief.

Seek First to Understand

Let My Goodness rule in all of your interactions today. Silently make note of times when you recognize My Presence, kindness, and love. Strive for peace with all you encounter. You get there by listening well and responding respectfully. I’ll give you the words to say when it is time to speak. Seek first to understand, though. Don’t skip this important step. Remember that I place you and others on a path with a purpose which you may not see or realize. Entrust Me with whatever you face today, and leave the outcomes up to Me.

My Designs Are Enjoyable

Enjoy! Live a little! Bask in My Presence and take your own agendas lightly, allowing Me to do and accomplish Good work in you. Keep your mind open and attentive to those around you. I speak in many ways- sometimes in those who are seemingly insignificant. You are good at what I designed for you, so take confidence and comfort in knowing and trusting that whatever I place before you is something you will be equipped to handle. My designs are perfect, and even enjoyable. Use your compassionate heart to attend to everyone I place in your path today. Live in My Light.

Questioning Your Purpose & Value

I know you sometimes question your purpose and value. It’s there, though – woven inside your heart by My Spirit, which is living in you. It might be even harder for you to see in yourself, but others recognize and are comforted by you. Today, try trusting that what you contribute is enough. You don’t have to demonstrate exceptional things in order to be valued. What if I told you just sitting there, being present to Me, is enough? Follow My lead on this today, practicing being comfortable in your own skin without “works”. Be My tangible light in the world, brightening the experience of others you encounter. Take joy in this simple kind of loving attentiveness.

You Will Find Me Here

Your head is full but with empty direction. How I long to meet you in both your empty and overly anxious places, providing fulfillment and connection in a way that restores and calms you. I am here, seeking your attention and pursuing you with love. If only you would turn your face to Me – how I delight when you choose to do so! Let Me lavish you with total acceptance and deep love. Return to Me and give me your full attention. You will find Me here, waiting patiently all along. I will show you the way to go.

Called to Necessary Work

There is work to do today. Approach it lightheartedly, trusting that you’ll have the insight, skill, and stamina to do what needs to be done. Think of yourself as a partner on a mission with Me: your aim is to help modify the world into a place of care and compassion. Show it in small ways like messaging anyone who may be hurting and needs an attentive friend. Even your other tasks like organizing and responding to details are important to Me as part of My plan. It’s all necessary work which I have called you to do. View your work with delight and eagerness, knowing and trusting that this is My special assignment designed just for you. I love you and need you, and am with you in it all.

Living For Me

Living for Me is what matters. Examine your day ahead, considering what I’ve asked you to do in it. Be present to others, giving them your full attention. Use loving eyes and heart-felt responses. In doing so, you live like Me. That is always ‘enough’. You are enough, and fully loved by Me.
