It’s Okay to Back Off a Bit

Everyone is a little bit broken, – even you. I don’t say that to sound mean or critical. Rather, I want to reassure you that I see and hold your fragility. I “get” the fearful and anxious thoughts that come into play when you encounter people and circumstances that scare or upset you, or make you second-guess yourself. It’s okay to back off a bit when you feel a need for protection or time to regroup and regain your footing. Run to My safe arms, which are always nearby and open for you. I will help steady you and I always aim to protect you. As I comfort you, your nerves will be soothed. Today doesn’t have to rattle you; trust in My loving Presence.

Trying To Handle Everything On Your Own

Beware of trying to handle everything on your own. This trips you up and triggers anxious thoughts. The critical voice loves to sneak in at those times and make you feel you are somehow falling short. I know otherwise about you! I see the loving intentions, capable actions, and thoughtful approaches you exhibit. I know your true self, and I also know you can trust Me to help you every minute and every hour of the day. Don’t get tripped up thinking it’s all up to you. Relax and enjoy the day with Me leading the steps.

Push the Critic Far Away

Hear Me telling you I am delighted with you! Why do you question and second-guess your every thought and actions with such criticism? That is not how I see you. Your expectation bar may be set a little too high, not allowing room for error and Grace to fill in. Move that bar to a more reasonable, rational, and attainable level. Be kind to yourself in your head, especially as you start to recognize My overwhelmingly unconditional love for you. Bask in this truth, and push the critic far away today, for that voice has no place of belonging in you.

I Am Never Disappointed In You

First and foremost, I want you to comprehend that I am never disappointed in you. It is you who puts critical judgement on your emotions, actions, and thoughts, – deeming them as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and equating them with worthiness. I don’t operate that way, though. I want you to know you are worth loving and being attended to. Allow yourself to receive My unconditional love. See how it changes you to become a person at peace, just as you are called and designed to be.

Sweep Away the Critical Voice

Sweep Away the Critical Voice

You don’t have to be as susceptible to the critical voice as you used to be. You are “onto it” by now, – recognizing the deceit and inaccuracy it tries to convince you is true. The only truth is that you already belong to Me, and My love for you is strong, invincible, and unconditional. No trickery of thought can take that away. Push those old self-critical ways out the door and sweep the porch off, removing any remaining dusty negativity or doubt. Re-enter your home with Me protecting you as you live with ease and peaceful confidence intact.

The Loving Response

The world wants to fill the space in your head with accusations, criticisms, and complaints. These hurt your heart. I disdain evil, corruption, and hurtful things. Yet I always find a way to respond with love, forgiveness, and hope for a better future where my children also choose to love instead of cause or reciprocate hurt. If you are faced with a situation that wrestles with your head or heart, seek My voice guiding you to the most loving response. Even if you don’t agree with the person or situation, choose to treat them with dignity. You will find that peace reigns when you do this. I will bless you with that kind of distancing and peace. Rise above. Do good unto others. Seek My kingdom first, knowing that My Grace is sufficient to help you with all of these things.

Hush the Critical Voice

Be gentle on yourself today. Hush the critical voice, holding tight to the truth that you are loved and likeable. This life is not about being perfect. You are not ‘bad’ when you experience emotional reactions to circumstances or interactions. If you are triggered by something another says or does, step back and ask for My help with perspective. I’ll give you the words to say and the loving way to respond which validates you yet maintains the dignity of others. You are oh-so-valuable to Me. I desire for you to find and keep inner peace. The best way there is to hold My hand hourly.

Eliminate Shaming Ways

You are so hard on yourself sometimes. I don’t judge you harshly, My beloved child. That part you must own and work to change. I call you to face your world-damaged heart, recognizing the inaccurate criticism blown out of proportion, and eliminate those hurtful and shaming ways you speak to yourself. Ask Me to help you reach in to be reassured and consoled. Love of self does not mean being selfish or egotistical. Rather, love of self is a call to recognize your Divine beauty; your inherently unique traits and attributes I wish to be confidently utilized and cherished.  Choosing to love yourself honors Me. You are sacred and valued.

Questioning Your Ability

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?

Slights and Offenses

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.
