Don’t Tear Yourself Apart

I want you to come bold-faced before Me, ready to hear all I have to say. Face Me and find that NOTHING can take away My love for you: no opinions from others, no little or big mistakes. So much of the tension and stress you live under is self-imposed and misguided. Allow My love for you to be ALL-ENCOMPASSING. Don’t give in to the temptation to tear yourself apart (again). You are just as worthy of My love and blessings as anyone else. Let Me attend to you, repairing your damaged spirit with My gentle attentiveness. I have already picked up the broken pieces; nothing has been left behind. Healing will come. 

Your Beauty and My Light

I love you just as you are. It is a love without judgement or condemnation. Can you work on accepting this truth, – receiving it without the tendency to let self-criticism drive it away or question its validity? Let My Light shine through your broken cracks. Others who hunger for Me will be attracted to the glorious combination of your beauty and My light.  See yourself as beautiful, charming, and delightful, because that’s how I see you. I long for you to be okay with this. 

Never Have to Earn My Love

Why do you see yourself as “undeserving” or disappointing to Me? Do you think I am counting up pluses and minuses with your every thought and action, tallying them, and only when you are “ahead” will you be worthy of My love and delight in you? I embrace you without accomplishments, – even when you are resting. I want you to practice doing LESS until you can solidly recognize My Love stays regardless of imperfections or outcomes. I love you, flawed and human as you are, -even when you are emotional or moody. Linger with Me in stillness and idleness, allowing your innermost self to realize the depth of My love for you. You never have to “do” or “be” a certain way to earn My love. 

Take a Break from Obsessing

Whatever is burdening you, I urge you to set it down. Take a break from obsessing about it or trying to fix it. Put it next to you on the table and come sit with Me for a bit, instead. Relax in My Presence, – experiencing a return of calm and peacefulness. Even if this is only momentary before you scramble to pick it all back up, remember that you can take a break from fretting as often as you need to. I will be waiting, each time. 

Lighten Up on Self-Criticism

Think of the word “softness” today. You can tread lightly wherever you walk, – not driven to impose on others but being gently present instead. I am not hard on you, but you often are on yourself. It hurts when Me when you do that and I ache for you to show more self-compassion, too. Try going softly today – especially lightening up on the self-criticism. You are loved fully by Me, exactly as you are.
