Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Be kind to yourself today. Actually, do that EVERY day. It will be easier to treat others kindly when you practice this on yourself. Don’t beat yourself up over everything you eat, say, and do. Rehashing everything in your head isn’t serving you well, either. The truth is, I love you unconditionally! I want you to enjoy your food, cut yourself some slack, and be more playful today.  Your kindness, like your compassion, will shine through. You are helping others in ways you may not even recognize.

Ushering You Away From Harm

You can trust Me. I never have back-handed motives or actions. I am a loving God who only operates in safe, kind, and caring ways. No matter who has treated you poorly in the past or how you’ve been hurt, I’m not like that. Picture Me standing by your side if memories of those encounters are clouding your mind. Rewrite that scenario by envisioning Me shielding you with a protective arm, ushering you away from the harm. Turn to Me and cling to the folds of My garments, for I am with you. Ask for My help to heal old wounds and release their grip on you. I am by your side, wishing you wellness and peace.

Let Me Intervene

There are many people suffering in this world. I have given you a compassionate heart, which makes you willing to see and sense the pain of others. Be ready to validate their experience. It’s not yours to fix, though. Let Me intervene. I recognize what all is going on, and I send help. Allow Me to be the One to mend the broken-hearted. Consider, perhaps, that your kind and attentive listening assists with that healing. No more than that is required.

Your Presence is an Extension of Me

You’ll have what it takes to address the needs of the day. I place you among My people with a directive to show love, hope, and encouragement by sitting attentively with others, validating their experiences, pain, or discouragement. It won’t necessarily be up to you to fix with the right words, though. Just be comfortable pausing to listen without responding at times. Your calm, loving presence will be enough and can be an extension of Me, showing how much you care in a way that words aren’t always needed. I’ll help you figure out what to say and when to say it when you pause to acknowledge My healing ways and ask for guidance. I am with you all, always.

Reflection of Me

Be your best reflection of Me today. I don’t ask that to pile on pressure to perform. Rather, to reflect Me means to show and share Light in any given situation. Be of good intention in your walk today. A smile and nod to the stranger; a kind word to a colleague; an utterance of self-compassion offered when mistakes happen. Recognize that I am both at your side as well as beaming from within when you do things such as this.

Roll With the Circumstances

You have what it takes. Speak boldly, as I have prepared you to do. Also speak kindly, with nurturing words toward yourself and others. Nothing needs to rile you. You can easily choose to roll with the circumstances that come upon you today, knowing I am with you no matter what happens next. I am present even in the unexpected, so don’t allow anxiety to cast a shadow over the bright things about to happen. You can handle everything when opting to do it in partnership with Me and under My Good plans for you.

Stumbling Blocks

Steer clear of stumbling blocks today. Avoid the blame game, and shrug off any tendency to speak negatively of others. This is hard and may challenge ingrained habits that aren’t serving you well. Lean into Me for strength if and when I call you to curb your tongue like this. I will help you avoid those pitfalls that could trip up My Good plan for you today. My way is one of truth, Light, and kindness. Choose the high road with Me today.

Soften Up

Take time to relax and remember that I have you in the palm of My hands. Cling to Me as I work on washing away old hurts, making you impervious to them over time. I’m not One to ask you to “toughen up”. Rather, I want you to soften up on yourself. As you learn to cut yourself some slack, you will find it easier to accept others are they are, as well. You won’t be as susceptible to the sting of off-handed remarks that tend to hurt or offend you. There’s no need to feel defensive when your confidence and assurance lies with Me.

Don’t Get Pulled Off Track Today

Each day people will do small deeds that are inconsiderate or unkind. Sometimes big injustices happen. Even so, I want you to release these irritations and frustrations into My care. Don’t allow your thoughts and emotions to run wild with ideas about how to tell others off or bring about justice on your own. This wastes important energy and will distract you from the peace and joy available within. Don’t get pulled off track today or be derailed by small injustices. Releasing things to My care doesn’t make you a “doormat”. It takes great strength of character to choose to walk away or to treat others with dignity and respect despite their behavior. My way is better. My way will free you and allow you to rise above any circumstance with great calm and internal respect. Pray for your enemies, even if this does not come easily. I will give you the grace, strength and wisdom in how to handle the situation if your heart is intent upon following My way.

Seek First to Understand

Let My Goodness rule in all of your interactions today. Silently make note of times when you recognize My Presence, kindness, and love. Strive for peace with all you encounter. You get there by listening well and responding respectfully. I’ll give you the words to say when it is time to speak. Seek first to understand, though. Don’t skip this important step. Remember that I place you and others on a path with a purpose which you may not see or realize. Entrust Me with whatever you face today, and leave the outcomes up to Me.
