When You Fall Short

My voice tells you “I love you”: ALL of you. That is hard to hear and fully comprehend, isn’t it? You tend to self-criticize and agonize over mistakes and flaws. While I want you to always try your best, you must realize I’m not mad at you when you fall short of your own expectations. Come running to Me when you trip and fall so that I can bandage your scrapes. Show kindness, forgiveness, and acceptance toward ALL others, even when they fall short of expectations, too. If you’re having a hard time doing this, pray for them. Pray that they are surrounded by My Light and Love. Pray for their wounds and their need for My hand to hold. This simple act will help soften your own heart. BRING ALL TO ME, for I am a loving God abounding in kindness. 

I See Your Pain

I see your pain. I hear your fearful and occasionally agitated voice, and I recognize your wish for peace and love. Remind yourself that I long for you all the day long. Our connection is not “magical”, – it is REAL. My tender heart is yours. My strength is there for you. Seek My kingdom first in your decision-making, and discover that I am there with you all the way through even when life feels painful. Imagine my loving, supportive arms around you in these moments. Hear My tender voice speaking at times through others, too. Utilize thankfulness as a tool to draw closer to Me. 

Determine What’s Important

I am a gentle God. Do not mistake My gentleness for lacking in power, because I still am the Great I Am who can accomplish all things. I may be calling you to sort out your priorities, releasing things that aren’t worth your time in My eyes as I help you determine what’s important. In a quiet space, hear My forgiveness. Let go of hurt. I can help you find the peace you so desire. In the quiet you will find renewal, clarity, and strength to do what is right and good. 

When Others Fall Short

Do as I ask of you – LOVE. Love fully and completely, without judgement and with compassion and forgiveness even when others fall short of your expectations. This is no small task for your human heart, but I will equip you. I know it sounds hard, but I will help. Turn to Me with petty annoyances. Release them into My care and respond to others with love regardless of whether or not it is “earned”. Find Grace in this action today: love as you are loved. 

Guard Against Resentment

Guard your heart against resentment. Be set free by My Grace alone. You can release the hurt into My capable hands. I will address your need for healing as well as their need for more compassion. Make My world better today by walking with peaceful steps. Breath in My Nooma – My Spirit – trusting that I am capable and present. No good deed goes unnoticed by Me. 

Let Me Heal What is Broken

Let Me be your ALL. Let Me help heal that which is broken, and guide you to the green pastures of peace and contentment. Allow Me to help you love yourself as you are, and find the goodness that is present and perfect within My design. I never call you to hate or berate yourself. I ask you to receive and see My love for you, and once you can do that, to share this with others. Trust the truth of My Light within. You are where you are and WHO you are for a reason: My reasons, My purpose. 

I will still love you

Why do you question Me so? Why do you cling to the doubt that binds you unnecessarily in insecurity and self-sabotage? My love for you is more than real: it is unshakable. My love completely covers every aspect of your life. Nothing, – no thought, action, intention, or decision, – goes unnoticed or unattended to by Me. Why do you hold on to a distorted sense that you are “not enough” yet? Why do you  believe that your thoughts are not pure enough for My viewing? Bring EVERYTHING to Me: all that you long for or fret over; all you desire, or are ashamed of. I will help you sort it out, and I will still love you, – always. Be reassured by that. Turn to Me and open yourself to trusting our relationship. You are forgiven, fully. I love you! 

Released from Dread

You have been coming to Me daily and I am healing you. You don’t have to let others get you down. I don’t want you to play judge. My way is only of Love. Continue to work on your obedience to My ways, and in that you will find Peace. Know that by the gift of Grace, I have already forgiven you. I have gifted you with a completely different kind of power: the power to forgive others, too, and be released from dread and resentment.  Shake the dust from your feet as you leave any hurtful places you need to move away from. Enter new doors shining like the sun, with dignity preserved and a sincere heart.
