Offer Grace to others when they annoy or offend you. Many are just reacting out of their own insecurities. You can stop fretting about how you come across. You are YOU: bold, and with sound opinions. It’s OK to be strong. People may also despise you because of your confidence, but again, that’s likely because of their own insecurity. You don’t have to be subdued just to make others more comfortable. Don’t stop being you or thinking you have to stifle your voice. Be the person I made you to be. When I call you to speak, speak boldly. When I nudge you to listen, listen attentively. As you practice self-acceptance, you also become more accepting of others. Ask for pardon when you offend or when you’ve insisted on being “right” instead of being open to hearing other’s point of view. Acknowledge differences, offering dignity and respect at your core. That’s how My love and purpose is manifested in the world.

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.

You know Me. Live your day knowing that no matter what, I love you deeply and unequivocally. Your anxiety will lessen as you concentrate on this fact and stop beating yourself up. You have done well, confronting things and working to improve communication with those around you. Even though that’s been a hard job, it is Good. You are already loved and respected. Now, just know Me more. Include Me in your days so I can gently caress away the fears and hurts. Do not fear impressions, because you are on an equal plane with others. Let’s celebrate that today.
