Think of the word “softness” today. You can tread lightly wherever you walk, – not driven to impose on others but being gently present instead. I am not hard on you, but you often are on yourself. It hurts when Me when you do that and I ache for you to show more self-compassion, too. Try going softly today – especially lightening up on the self-criticism. You are loved fully by Me, exactly as you are.
Your heart is not made of stone. It’s made by Me, for love. Sure, it may have some rough edges which have become hardened over in attempts to be self-protective. I can help file those down, returning you to the soft nature of My original design. Ask Me to assist you. Give Me the power to help you release old hurts, getting rid of defensiveness that binds you. You don’t have to remain impaired by a heart locked up so tightly. Trust Me more. Let Love override all things, including your misguided desire to be in control. Put Me in charge of the outcomes, knowing that in your vulnerability others will be drawn closer to you and to My Spirit within you. I will keep you safe, always.
I will help soften your heart. It is so important for you to forgive others and release ALL of the hurt and frustration from past offenses over to Me. Don’t just give Me part of it while you cling to your own retaliatory ideas. Let Me be the Judge and the One who mends. It’s the only way to find true Peace. Hand it all over, finding the weight lifted from your heavy, hurting heart in new and freeing ways.
You are Mine for all times: in good and even in suffering. Even though no one knows your internal hurt and worries, I do. My intimate awareness of how you suffer deep inside is what makes Me God. I weep with you when you are grieving. I recognize the disappointment you keep silently to yourself. My holy heart aches with yours. Let My intense awareness and attentiveness be your source of comfort today. There is no need to “save face” around Me. Let Me help bear the wounded truth you carry deep within, and trust Me to be your Healing God. I make Goodness arise out of ashes, sadness, and disappointment.
People have hurt you. I know, and I ache for both sides. My design longs for unity, but you can only be in charge of yourself. Examine your ways, scrutinizing against any spitefulness and rooting for kindness to take its place. Forgiveness and love are at the heart of the lifestyle I choose for you. You can be bold in calling out the truth of bad behavior, but I caution you on how to do this. Use gentleness and loving intention, aiming for reconciliation. If the other side is not yet ready for this, leave it in My capable hands. You don’t have to address any of this on your own. Leave your hurt with Me. It is time to be released from its grip on your heart so that Peace can be with you, instead.
