Just As Lovely With Flaws

All of this striving for perfection is having a reverse effect on you. Unrealistic self-expectations make people more critical and less accommodating. I never ask for perfection from you. Instead, I suggest you come to Me as little children. What child do you know who has never made mistakes or gotten into messes? What child never weeps or gets mouthy or angry on occasion? And yet, their parent loves them. Let Me console you and encourage you, helping build you back up to recognize you are just as lovely with flaws than without any. Those “without flaws” are usually tightly wound, intimidating, and less approachable. Work on taking yourself a little more lightly, allowing truthful expression of emotions and a whole range of them. It’s what makes you alive. Live in the realm of My love without pretenses and a little more in love with yourself today.

Perfection is a Misguided Aim

You are on the brink of falling into the old trap of beating yourself up inside your head. Today, choose life instead. Choose to love your flaws and imperfections, putting balance back into perspective as you see how much your Goodness outshines the rest. I love and behold you just as you are, with both sides included. Seeking perfection and expecting that of yourself is a misguided aim. Beloved, seek Me and My unconditional adoration of you as My creation. Certainly I want you to do your best, putting kindness, mindfulness, and intentionality behind all your actions, but I don’t want or expect perfection. Mistakes happen. Brush away the dark thoughts and find joy in the with-God life I intend for you.

Your Uniqueness Reaches Others

I wish you would stop being so critical of yourself. I created you just as you are so that your uniqueness reaches others. I do My best work in and through you when you stop judging yourself internally and follow your God-given instincts. Speak when you feel urged to; share when I nudge you; listen with ears that ear; notice and attend to others with eyes that see. You are good at all of this because of how I made you and because of your faith and trust in how I work within you. I will bless your encounters with others when you intentionally choose to trust your well-being.

Freed and Transparent

I call you to walk boldly, not sheepishly. I encourage you to write, speak and be observed by others as you walk uprightly. Using all of your wit, humility, and confidence interwoven is My design for you. Be freed from the chaos and shackles of constant self-remorse, – always replaying conversations in your head and worrying about how you were perceived. I will take care of those perceptions; you just concentrate on being transparent. You no longer have to hide your thoughts and emotions. Give voice to the things you haven’t yet been able to name or say out loud. There is great purpose in using this gift at places and times of My design.

When You Berate Yourself

You are My beautiful creation. I pride Myself for who you are and ‘how you turned out’. It pains me whenever you try to be something other than yourself, or when you berate yourself. I made you with an engaging personality. It’s not healthy to constantly second-guess your words and actions that come instinctively out of you. Don’t fear being yourself, or even being the center of attention at times. I set up opportunities for you to be there so that My light can shine brightly through you. I in you, you in Me. Your task is to learn to allow for this to be so and walk in this truth.

Concentrate Only on What is Needed

Let Me help you quiet yourself. Listen for My still, small voice saying “I am with you”. When you sense anxiety encroaching upon your thoughts and body, ward it off by grasping My hand in confidence that I am equipping you. I protect you, and you are Mine. No amount of work, tasks, or unanticipated events will take you away from My loving and all-powerful Presence. Sense My nearness, and remember to concentrate only on what is needed today in the present, – especially if your head is filled with other concerns. Breathe. Slow down. I will give you all that you need so you can go with confidence.

My Voice Amidst the Clammer

I designed you to be capable of many thoughts. Your head is often so full that it gets difficult to find Me in there, too, but I am there…whispering reassurance and providing moments of clarity. I give you suggestions and things to consider. Listen for My voice amidst the clammer, telling you that you are loved, wanted, appreciated, and MINE. I am never going to reject you. Never ever. Stop worrying about pleasing or impressing others. It is inherently part of your nature to attend to many people. In fact, this is so ingrained that you rarely notice the number of lives you impact in a day. Your walk with Me is true and pure in its intent, so you needn’t be so critical of yourself. I am well pleased with you. Start your day allowing yourself to fully receive this message.

I Am Your Protector & Healer

Oh, my anxious one! How I long to scoop you up into My arms like a little lamb, shaking in the dark and cold world. I am your protector and healer. The Light of day is coming soon and will shed new perspective for you. You can trust Me and My plans for Good things to come. I will not let you down. In fact, I’ll keep holding you tightly until you feel confident and reassure again. Stay with Me as long as it takes to settle you down before stepping into the day. I will be with you wherever you go, and continue carrying you as long as you need Me to.

Stop With All the Self-Doubt

You are good enough and likeable. You ARE. Stop with all the self-doubt. Yell at the ridiculing voice inside your head trying to make you question your likeability. Don’t succumb to believing the lies of the deceiver. Laugh at him, and scoff at his attempts to make you believe such polar opposites to My truth about you. The truth is, you are a loving and positive light in the world, and others are drawn to you because of how I live in your heart. Nothing can overpower the brightness in your soul so go live mightily and joyfully basking in the truth about you today.

Resist the Urge to Relive Yesterday’s Worries

I am sovereign over all things. When worries of yesterday crop up, resist the urge to relive the experience or to criticize your every move. Quickly push the anxiety aside by saying, “Lord, You placed me where I was and I can trust You with the impact and outcomes.” You need not worry about others impressions of you. My love for you is all-encompassing, and I want you to rest assured that all is well with you in My eyes. Take this to heart: you are loveable, likeable, and accepted.
