When Others Disappoint or Irritate You

You can treat others kindly, giving them respect and dignity even when they disappoint or irritate you. Take a deep breath before choosing your words in response to those you find personally challenging. Then, acknowledge what they have to say, even if you disagree. Do this first, and try to listen without judging. Ask Me for help when being kind and respectful is hard for you. Bring the offense you’ve experienced to Me and ask for My help to be understanding in response. You don’t have to hide your difficult emotions from Me. I get it. Let Me validate you when others cannot out of pride or ego. I will help you with perspective and with what to say in response. Remember, love always wins out in the end. Choose loving-kindness over being “right”.

I’ll Keep You Afloat

You are in My kind hands today. I can navigate the tricky waters ahead with you. Just sit back in My boat as together we face the direction you are headed in. Entrust Me with the oars, and hand over the choices to Me. I can handle the rapids and keep you afloat, even in stormy times. I may ask you to help paddle upstream a bit, but together we can navigate it all safely.

Being Around Others

Being around others can be challenging. You long for belonging and acceptance, but interactions with others can be fickle and unpredictable. I am your constant Companion, ever-present and adoring of you. Let this loving truth overpower any fear of being rejected, excluded, or misunderstood. Look for My kindness to appear in conversations and exchanged glances or smiles. Enter these spaces confidently, trusting My Presence in and around you. I will meet you and be with you wherever you go.

Your Longing for Confidence

I know your longing for confidence and a sense of inner ease. I also see the frail moments where, in your head, you are susceptible to crumbling to pieces. It’s okay that this happens now and then. Be kind and forgiving to yourself when it does, showing gentle compassion and healthy self-care. I will mend every single piece of that brokenness. No crumb goes unnoticed by Me. Picture Me gazing lovingly at you as I reassuringly pick up piece after piece. I will wipe every tear away and breathe restoration into your deflated spirit. You are resilient and will come through it all well. Make this truth your focus to get you by today.

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.
