Less Critical of Yourself

Try being less critical of yourself and see how this impacts your ability to show Grace better to others. Everyone has flaws, but this does not make anyone less-than-perfect in My eyes. I design all with unique traits, and imperfections have their place in making the world more relatable. Instead of judging yourself and others so harshly, try viewing shortcomings with a different lens, knowing no one is better or less than anyone else from My perspective. Using this, you will be better able to love unconditionally, including how well you love yourself. See how this enables you to be more at peace deep inside, too.

Hungry for Wellness

You are hungry for wellness. In order to be made well, it is important that you recognize you’re already well-made by Me. Find this holy wholeness at your core, in spiritual realms of Goodness woven into every fiber of your being. I mean that! Instead of focusing on what is broken, out of shape, or “imperfect”, tap into seeing the truth of My perfect design. I love you exactly as you are. Find that place inside your soul that knows this to be true, and reintroduce yourself. Commit to taking care of yourself while also being kind to yourself at all costs. This is where true wellness comes into fruition.

When You Are Worn Out

When you are worn out, sad, or fearful, I see it all. Today is a new day, though. I ask you to attend to self-care first before helping others. When you feel unsafe, fragile, or broken, I am here; at work in you and in your life. Your Goodness touches others in ways you don’t even realize. Instead of focusing on what you haven’t gotten done, replenish your spirit by knowing My renewing Grace is free. I am here to help you be self-forgiving and clean out those messy thoughts trying to put yourself down. Find rest and comfort with Me as we rebuild your strength and self-esteem.

What Are You Thirsty For?

You don’t have to miss a thing. However, many of the things you are trying to juggle may be exactly what is throwing you off. What are you pursuing these days: Perfection? Notoriety? Worth? Possessions? Relief from discomfort? A problem-free life? It’s easy to be distracted by these things, which are often unrealistic and will not inherently satisfy. Sit with Me and be fully present to our relationship first. I am drawing you to a different well. Seek Me first, and find Me with you, attentive to all of your needs and wants. I may refine your desires, but I see them all and I love you enough to send My well of living water. I know what you are thirsty for.

Just As Lovely With Flaws

All of this striving for perfection is having a reverse effect on you. Unrealistic self-expectations make people more critical and less accommodating. I never ask for perfection from you. Instead, I suggest you come to Me as little children. What child do you know who has never made mistakes or gotten into messes? What child never weeps or gets mouthy or angry on occasion? And yet, their parent loves them. Let Me console you and encourage you, helping build you back up to recognize you are just as lovely with flaws than without any. Those “without flaws” are usually tightly wound, intimidating, and less approachable. Work on taking yourself a little more lightly, allowing truthful expression of emotions and a whole range of them. It’s what makes you alive. Live in the realm of My love without pretenses and a little more in love with yourself today.

Perfection is a Misguided Aim

You are on the brink of falling into the old trap of beating yourself up inside your head. Today, choose life instead. Choose to love your flaws and imperfections, putting balance back into perspective as you see how much your Goodness outshines the rest. I love and behold you just as you are, with both sides included. Seeking perfection and expecting that of yourself is a misguided aim. Beloved, seek Me and My unconditional adoration of you as My creation. Certainly I want you to do your best, putting kindness, mindfulness, and intentionality behind all your actions, but I don’t want or expect perfection. Mistakes happen. Brush away the dark thoughts and find joy in the with-God life I intend for you.

Rest for Your Body, Soul and Mind

You require more rest and balance. For some people this comes naturally and easily, but others like you have to work hard to establish boundaries and carve out time for rest. It may mean setting boundaries with others or boundaries against your relentless self that is so driven to accomplishment and perfection. Ask Me what is most needed today, and acknowledge the places you are vulnerable. I am not a harsh task-master driving you until you are weary in your bones. Don’t let exhaustion overcome you. Find rest for your body, soul and mind with My help. Remember that My first call invites you to peace.

Aim for What is Doable

I am a reassuring God. I often see you pushing yourself, striving for that unattainable perfection and trying to be the most thoughtful, capable person who is always on top of everything. Allow Me to bless you with full acceptance of your efforts; I deem them to truly be enough. Yes, I want you to be kind, loving and thoughtful and to use your talents well, but not at the expense of beating yourself up with unrealistic expectations. My bar for you is no higher than what you can comfortably and reasonably accomplish today, – no more and no less. Aim for what is doable and leave the rest for Me to attend. Accept My fully pleased response to you, which never has to be earned. I give it freely.

Irritable Moments

I am with you every step of the way. I don’t call you to be perfect. You will have minor irritations in this world, which don’t make you a bad person. In these irritable moments, just pause and inhale deeply. Hear Me acknowledging, “I hear you. I know you. I get it.” Remember that this, too, shall pass. Perhaps through this internal dialogue with Me, the mere act of having Me validate your experience will be the calming effect you need to endure this short-term storm. Turn to Me to live with ease like that.

Stop Pretense of ‘Having It All Together’

You are perfectly imperfect, and that’s exactly how I designed you. I want you to not only accept this truth, but to embrace and celebrate it with confidence and joy! Stop worrying about upholding pretenses of ‘having it all together’, ‘being on top of things,’ or being the one who’s ‘got it goin’ on’. Just walk humbly -yet confidently!- in the shoes I provide you with for today. No more, no less. You can trust that I like and love you just the way you are.
