I know you. I see you questioning your credibility and your ability to carry out My plan for you. I am your Creator, – the One who designed you to bring about good things in the world by My Grace. You don’t have to underestimate what you are capable of when you pair your willingness with My will. You can even face criticism without letting it slay you. I will strengthen you so that other’s negative comments don’t wear you down. Wish love upon the haters, and remember that love and Light dominate darkness, always. Don’t let others or self-doubt get you down. If God is for you, who can be against?
I see the tears that sting your eyes in private. It’s okay to cry in front of Me. It would be unreasonable to expect your life to be devoid of hurt or sorrow because real pain happens. When tears stem from grief or worry, let Me help with that. I will sit with you as long as you need until your breathing slows and your guard lets down. Let Me be your protector, comforter, and guide. You’ll never have to face anything alone. Lean into My loving Presence and know with confidence that I’ll help get you through.
In your areas of weakness, I am strong. In your flaws, I am present to help guide you onto higher ground, with sure footing. The act of humbling yourself means that in areas where you do not have mastery or self-control, you can recognize the need for My help and choose to allow Me to work on your troubles with you. I help best if you posture yourself in such a way that submits to My will and My design for you, which is perfect. The with-God life requires a humble stance with daily acknowledgement of your need for Me. Being humble doesn’t mean beating yourself up or lacking in esteem. You can have confidence as you learn to lean on Me and live off of My Grace, given freely to you. I know you well and love you even with flaws and imperfections. Show your need for Me so that I can give you your daily bread, sufficient to meet all your needs.
Concentrate on My flow plan for today. As activities unfold, moment by moment, allow My lead to guide your steps. Recognize the pressure for “performance” that is ego-driven, and instead, perform for Me as an audience of One. Show your stuff in honor of Me. It’s okay to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and appealing to others – this is part of how I designed you. Share news and information that edifies. Be delightful! You are My bright child in whom My Light shines. Go with confidence, joyfully, into this day with the pressure off. In you I am already well-pleased.
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.
