I have so much affection and love for you! You shine in ways that bring Me delight. I wish you could see yourself as I see you; how differently you would walk, carrying yourself with ease, lightness, and confidence in each step. Oh how it would change you to not be so worried about what others are thinking about you. They are drawn in with joy and an eagerness to be in your presence when you emanate Our united Love-Light. This is attainable just by choosing to accept My love for you and living by it with integrity and belief.
Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
You are My rock…at least, you can be when you decide to trust that this is how I made you to be. I can empower you to do so much more than you limit yourself in imagining. I gave you My Paraclete, who is in you and with you and ready to accomplish giant things in My name. Are you ready? Are you willing to open yourself to the possibilities of all I have in store for your life? Remember, you do not do any of this alone or on your own might. I equip you, daily, for mighty and for small things. All you need to do is say, “Yes, Lord”, and My kingdom can be built upon your rock of faith.
You don’t have to worry so much about agendas, impressions, and accomplishments. Today is a day of connection. I call you to listen well, smile, laugh, and be yourself without agonizing about it afterward. I am in you and all around. You may even find yourself enjoying the interactions today. I love you just as you are, and there is freedom in allowing this to sink in. You can trust that I will bring you peace, because I am the Prince of Peace, after all.
I made you a smart person who is capable of clear thinking, sound judgment, and good decision-making. Even with all that ability, though, sometimes life hands out situations that are hard to sort out. I can tell you this much: as you make your choices, I will never leave your side. When you ask for My guidance, I will lead the way. You have to work on trusting the decisions and not looking back or second-guessing the choices that are made. Move on, facing forward with determination, faith, confidence, and peace of mind. Knowing I am with you always will help you rest. You can’t go wrong with Me.
It’s OK to not be perfect. Repeat this to yourself often today. You are exactly the right fit for each task and situation I impose upon you. Take your whole self, – flaws and all, -with an inner confidence in My plan and your capacity to fulfill it. If any mistakes occur, acknowledge them without added guilt or shame and then move on. Even mistakes can be part of My design. You need to go easier on yourself, and this will help you go easier on others with enhanced capacity to forgive and love naturally. As you practice releasing unreachable standards and owning the fact that imperfection is okay with Me, you can laugh at yourself a little more and trust that I love ALL of you, even with quirks and flaws.
I am preparing you for bigger things to come. Sit with that thought for a moment. It’s not you who must prepare for My plans; your job is simply to be ready to receive. Be open to learning, trying new things, and receiving My work within you. Anxiety will try to creep in and take over, but you can resist that old habit by recognizing this is not all up to you. I am a trustworthy God. Be child-like with curiosity and enthusiasm for the new things I want you to experience. You will be equipped to step boldly onto the path I draw you to, – confident and assured that My will is doable and sure.
Grasp My message that you are LOVED. Take hold of this concept and step bravely into the world knowing that NOTHING can stand in the way of My love for you! Nothing. No character flaws, criticisms, or mistakes. I call you to love generously, treat others kindly, uphold justice, and show mercy and respect for all. In other words, do your best to show unconditional love for others just as I do for you. But even if you don’t do that 100% of the time, My love for you is still unconditional. Walk confidently knowing this is true. If you cannot see or receive such a gift of total acceptance from Me, ask for My help to open your perspective. Your life is sacred and has a holy purpose. I have selected you for a reason, and you are My beloved.
Show love through your face and you can’t go wrong. Demonstrate genuine interest in others. Try to set aside your own agendas, trusting Me to guide both the path and the outcomes today. You’ll move easier this way, anticipating that we’ll meet in every encounter. Operating with this mindset, you won’t have to be so scared of people. Remember, “If God is for us, who can be against?” I have led you to each situation today. You can choose to trust My design and bank on the idea that it’s meant for Good purposes. You don’t have to see the full picture to know I’ve got it covered. Just be yourself, – transparent and personable, – the way I created you.
You are My delight, yet you mostly do not recognize it. Why do you have such difficulty believing this? Come to Me. Step forward out of the dark corners you stay shadowed in. I want you to be fully seen. Let My tears of Grace wash any past shame or regret away. If there are talents and skills you are timid about, hear My encouragement to bring them forward. I need all of you, not just the pieces you assess as “good enough”. Hold nothing back from My tender gaze. Allow My Light to permeate, warming you at your core and highlighting the Goodness I have designed in you as your Creator. Step out today with confidence in your true worth.
