You’re Not Too Messed Up

I love you no matter what. This might sound ridiculous to you, especially when measured against your secret thoughts of “how could anyone love me as I am? I’m too messed up.” This is just not true. You are never too messed up for Me. Let Me help smooth out the rough edges, brushing off the dirt and remains of times you’ve tripped up. I want you to see how capable you are of walking on a better path for you, bathed in My Light and Goodness. I believe in you, and I love you exactly as you are. Start fresh today in this truth, taking one step at a time, with My help.

It’s OK to Like Yourself

It’s A-OK to actually like yourself! So many weary and anxiety-ridden hours have been ill-spent on self-reproach. The life I long for you to experience is one where you confidently see yourself as endearing, capable, and worthy of positive attention as well as loving support. How I wish you would embrace this new lifestyle – entering each day with calm and ease because you can trust you are supposed to have good things happen in your life. Picture it, then hear Me affirming that this is the true life I’ve called you to live.

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.

You Are Loved, Well, and Needed

Oh, My tender-hearted one. I see and hear your hidden self-reproach. Even though others have no idea how hard you are on yourself, I see it and hear it. Sit with Me a while and feel My reassuring arm of protection and comfort around your shoulders. Let’s get back at it today, shaking the dust of yesterday from your feet. Brush off the discouragement and rid yourself of the mean things you’ve told yourself. You don’t need that negativity taking up space in your head, – nor do I want that for you. Replace it with My reassurance that you are loved, you are well, and you are needed. Repeat this mantra throughout the day, because it is My truth for you, and My truth is all that matters.

Calm Reassurance

My hand continues to be working in, before, and behind you, molding you to My design. Hear My voice offering calm reassurance. I AM WITH YOU…I am with you. Breathe in this truth, absorbing its healing power. You are never alone in anything you must face today and always. Today I ask you to not feel small. Instead of being anxious or worried, picture yourself as big, confident, and filled with My strength to accomplish all that is asked of you, one thing at a time. In a world of multi-tasking, doing one thing at a time is actually key to staying focused and calm. Remember that My hand is cupped around yours. Glance toward Me with each task we pick up to handle together. Celebrate our companionship as the day unfolds and eventually draws to completion. My joy is yours.

Susceptible to Anxious Ways of Thinking

You are susceptible to old, anxious ways of thinking: fearing that you’ve somehow ‘done something wrong’ or are ‘not measuring up to some yard stick of approval’ by Me or by others. When these thoughts come up, I want you to recognize them as false and throw them out of your head. Mentally, toss them out of the window and into the trash, because My love for you is unchanged and ever-steady. I am readily available and My love is unending. Any messages trying to tell you otherwise or steal your confidence and peace are not brought on by Me, your loving Creator. Listen to My truth: you are enough and you are beloved.

When You Feel Discouraged

It’s okay to not be happy all the time. On those days when you feel sad or discouraged, treat yourself extra gently, – just as I would. Attend to your needs like you would a sick child: encouraging rest, offering something cool to drink, tenderly stroking their head and praying for them to get better. Lean into hope that things are on the mend and lighter, easier days are ahead. In fact, cling to this hope as your lifeline of truth, because I am here.

Find Balance and Direction

Listen to the truths surfacing in your heart. I am calling you to pay attention to true self-care, which involves finding balance between activity and stillness. Already you are seeing the  benefits of this quiet time spent with Me. Simplify your life. Take time to reflect on what is most important to you vs. how you are spending your time. I speak to you on a gut-level like that. Honoring Me doesn’t mean overextending yourself, nor does it mean giving up what you enjoy. I designed you with likes and dislikes for a reason and a purpose. Ask Me to help you find balance and direction as you follow what gives you passion. That is My gift to you.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

When Dread Creeps In

When dread creeps into your thoughts, that’s usually a sign of unfounded worry. Once the real event actually unfolds, you’ll see how My Goodness comes through. Glimpses of Me can show up in just a glance: a view from a car window as you drive; the lilt of someone’s laughter; a call or text that you weren’t expecting but brings delight. My Goodness is the reality and hope you can cling to. Anticipate positive things and feel that burden of anxiety lifted from your chest. I am here, making all things new.
