You are so hard on yourself sometimes. I don’t judge you harshly, My beloved child. That part you must own and work to change. I call you to face your world-damaged heart, recognizing the inaccurate criticism blown out of proportion, and eliminate those hurtful and shaming ways you speak to yourself. Ask Me to help you reach in to be reassured and consoled. Love of self does not mean being selfish or egotistical. Rather, love of self is a call to recognize your Divine beauty; your inherently unique traits and attributes I wish to be confidently utilized and cherished. Choosing to love yourself honors Me. You are sacred and valued.
Rely on Me for help when you feel weary. This yoke is meant to be shared between the two of us. Look for Me in the tiniest details and consider it evidence of My great Love for you. A warm beverage or blanket on a cold, rainy day; the splash of fall color on a leaf; a moment of calming quiet in the middle of a chaotic day. The number of ways I choose to surround you in abundant Love can easily be overlooked or imperceptible to you, yet I am with you always, – making the load manageable.
Like water rolling off a duck’s back, let those petty annoyances drip off. Shake your feathers and watch those insensitive and unkind words flick off easily. You are deserving of love and don’t need those negative memories gnawing at you. Look for the Good and presume positive intentions even if other’s actions were offensive, condescending, or hurtful. You can be bigger than that and walk away from the negativity. Nothing needs to erode your Peace, which you’ll find in looking to Me and living in My ways. Ask Me for help to clear your mind and find Me readily with you, refreshing your perspective and outlook.
You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.
You don’t have to put on a show for others to appreciate you. My Light is prominent in you already, and others are drawn to who you are. Be at ease within, trusting Me on this. Whether quiet or boisterous, listening or informing, soaking in other’s perspective or sharing your own opinions, I am Present in your personality. You are worthy of every bit of attention you get, as are those you give attention to. Make today a Love-Light fest between you and others, tossing aside any shred of worry over how you are coming across. I call you to be yourself and trust that this is, indeed, not just “good enough” but MORE than enough.
You think you have many tasks on your calendar today, but look at it from this perspective: your only job is to love. In every call you receive and every interaction you have, your business is simply to show love. That may require you to listen a little longer to those who appear annoying or trivial initially. Lend an attentive ear with kindness. It may require reaching out when you know it will cause an investment of time that you’d rather be spending elsewhere. If you take My business of loving to the streets of your city, My kingdom can be built one encounter at a time. Take the excess worry, anxiety, and frustration off your plate and pile it at My feet. I’ll make room for what is most needed today.
You are living a full life, rounded out by trials and triumphs. These experiences make you rich in understanding, and it is this gift that you share so widely with others. Compassion is essential, and as you provide understanding to others you can ask for the same from them. I will be Present in this exchange. Goodness can abound and love always triumphs over darkness.
Do you trust Me to be caring for you? Because I AM, quietly and gently – sometimes imperceptibly by you, but ever-so-present, always. Close your eyes for a moment and let Me remind you of My great Love for you. I send forgiveness, strength, courage, love, and ways for you to find peace. Go gently into this day with less anxiety as you heighten awareness of My support to you. Pay attention to My call asking you to be My Presence in the world. You are capable of this; I will equip you with whatever you need. Above, underneath, and through it all is My love and caring for you. You will see and sense that today. Look for it.
Come along for the ride with Me today. You don’t have to have it all mapped out on your own. I may take you new places or I may opt for a few stops along the way. Just try resting and breathing, allowing the experiences that come before you to unfold. You don’t have to feel flustered or overwhelmed because I’m the Driver and I know where we are going, – together. Breathe, My loved one. Trust in My ultimate care for you.
Your ability to connect to others comes from within, so use genuine conversation and reflect My Light of Love and Hope through your eyes and warm words. This comes naturally to you when you allow yourself to invest faith in My design. Believe in your inherent Goodness and trust your capacity to influence the world in positive ways today. No vision of that is too big or too small. Take full advantage of the opportunities I place before you to lovingly and brightly impact the world around you.
