See Yourself As I See You

Know that I am GOOD. Know that I also fill YOU with Good. Stop disdaining your human mistakes. It hurts Me when I hear you putting yourself down. Embrace yourself, flaws and all, seeing that the Good far outweighs the negative or any frailties. Try to see yourself as I see you. In My Light there is radiant love, appreciation, forgiveness, and complete acceptance. See My view of you, that you may be radiant with JOY. 

Always Choose Love

Choose the most loving reaction you can think of with whatever faces you today. A kind word, an embrace, a pause to react with forgiveness rather than admonition toward another. These are things “of Me”. Whisper to Me throughout the day. Stay connected, gripping tightly to My hand. Always choose love. This, in turn, will bring you Peace. Love heals and sustains like nothing else can. 

Stop Beating Yourself Up

Put away your ways of old. Stop beating yourself up, berating yourself for this or that. Close your eyes, breathe in My peace, and absorb My Light. I want to cover you in Grace and flow freely from you, but you must clear you mind of its clutter in order for Me to do that. Let Me help you. Take each item, one by one, that distracts you, and mindfully place it in My hands. Do it now and throughout the day ahead. You are forgiven for past actions; now it is time to forgive yourself. I can bless you with peaceful gifts and Grace beyond what you alone can imagine! 

Don’t Be Secretly Distressed

I know your thoughts, – every one of them. Don’t think you need to “screen out” what you bring to Me. Hand over your hard thoughts, too: the worries, lusts, fears, passions, and judgemental criticism. Allow Me to help you see them more clearly in the Light. I don’t want you to be secretly distressed by these things. I won’t hate you for your thoughts or struggles. I desire to be with you, guiding your steps and protecting you from cliffs and danger zones. Share it all with Me as the One you love, and be kinder to yourself. You are human, and I created you. I take you even with your mistakes and setbacks. Let Me fill you with My Grace to strengthen you against things that are harmful, providing internal and lasting Peace instead.

My Love is Easy

My love is easy: past wrongs forgiven; gentle kisses on your brow. Tender wishes for you to have a pleasant day. I watch you prepare for the tasks ahead of you and rush off into the flurry of activity. Stop long enough to feel My warmth: genuine and persistent. Unstoppable. Nothing you do can “earn” or “un-earn” My love. See My joy radiating all around you, and rest in My peace. Whatever you most need – joy, peace, or love – is available to you. Follow My ways, and simply offer up a heart of gratitude. 

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.
