I see you working so hard to try to do everything “right”, yet feeling afraid that you are missing the mark or falling short. This couldn’t be further from the truth! I never ask more of you than what you’ve already been equipped to give. When that inaccurately critical voice tries to overwhelm you with distorted self-evaluation, stop and face Me. Look to My gaze, so full of complete love, reassurance, forgiveness, and ultimate acceptance. That is the truth about you. You are loving, capable, and kind. Don’t let any little flaws or misperceptions try to convince you otherwise. I love you totally, and you are Mine for all of time.

A new day is dawning. I have things for you to do in it which you are uniquely designed to handle well. Take stock in how you are treating yourself during your self-talk. Be kind and encouraging to yourself, believing in My Good plans and your capacity to fulfill them. If you catch yourself using demeaning or anxiety-producing language, stop and return to Me for reassurance. I can help rewrite those scripts. Use a language of love when talking to yourself today and don’t settle for anything less. It will have a far reach when you do, because it spills over into loving conversation with others, as well.

Today is supposed to be about expressing love to others. I want to emphasize that it’s okay and essential to love yourself, too. Your body has been working well for you, so be kind to it today and deflect any tendency to criticize any part of yourself. Replace that habit with one of gratitude for all that you are still able to do in life. Embrace your age, and learn to listen and attend to your body and spirit just as much as you pay attention to others. Life is a gift encased in this “self”, so the more you treasure and nurture it, the more freely you can share love well with others.

You don’t have to be timid or self-conscious today. I bring you into every experience with Godly confidence that you are exactly who and what is needed in that space. Aware that you are no better and no worse than anyone else, you can feel comfortable being yourself. Be honest and light-hearted in your interactions. As you choose to trust Me and My great design for your day, let comfortable confidence arise from your core Spirit. My Light beams forth from that place within you, and others will be drawn in because of it.

I love you even when you are annoyed and angry and your face scrunches up with visible disdain or criticism toward others. This doesn’t make you a “bad person”. I still love you, even then. With that said, I also want you to bring those annoyances, judgements, and criticism of others and lay it all at My feet. Release your thoughts into My capable, problem-solving hands. Inhale forgiveness and fresh perspective. What if I tell you I need those people right where they are and I want you right there with them? I have My reasons, which you cannot always see. Inhale trust for My design at work; exhale a greater acceptance of others, because all belong to Me equally.

You are God’s beloved, – a child of God, – so, believe it. Knowing this and trusting Me in this truth are two different things, but both are equally important. To know is to comprehend deep within, ingesting the words and shedding light on negative thought habits that try to tell you otherwise. God shows favor and delight in you, with great affection. Trusting this truth is taking all of this to the next level by putting into action self-care, self-confidence, and self-acceptance. When you trust that you are loved, defensiveness and false pretenses go down and fade away so the real you can shine without feeling daunted. Show love to yourself and this will radiate out, helping you to love others with ease, insight, and patience. Grasp what it feels like to know and trust God’s love for you.

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.

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.

I am your God, – with you and for you, – always present at attention. This means you no longer have to worry about being ‘perfect’ or ‘worthy’. I notice all of your good intentions and thoughtful ways. I also see the screw-ups and mishaps, unintentional or humanly flawed as they are. The bottom line is that I want Good things for you, regardless of mistakes. I take messes and help repair them. Together we can ask for forgiveness as needed and deliver acceptance to others without holding back. Come to Me with the broken parts of life, in faithful hope that I will help things get better.

Let Me inspire you. If you linger at My table long enough, you’ll feel the nudges I am trying to send. You will hear, feel, and know when it is time to move vs. when you need to be still. When to reach out and connect vs. when to hole up and recover. How to be the helper vs. when to ask for help. For now, be the encourager I created you to be. This starts by knowing you are enough, just as you are. Love and affirm all the intricate truths and facets of yourself. You are beautiful to Me just as you are, and I have so much still in store for you. You can be excited about that!
