I am near. The One who breathed life into you and loves you fully is right next to you, – even inside your head and heart. Take comfort in My utter closeness. I want to ease your painful anxiety. In fact, I ache to lift that burdensome way of thinking. Oh My child, if only you would latch onto the truth. Be aware of My Presence and plan, knowing that I strengthen, equip, and comfort you exactly as you need at any given moment. Therein lies your peace of mind, patiently awaiting you to trustingly breathe it in.
Look for the most vivid color that you can spot in your surroundings. Hone in on it, trying to notice every detail for a moment. See how it stands out, intricately woven. That’s how you are to Me: worthy of being noticed and even admired. Acknowledge My Presence within the design. Allow yourself to be astonished by this truth and take time to appreciate our Goodness together. You matter to Me. Practice this simple act of observance everywhere you go today, impressed by the clarity of how one thing can stand out so clearly as evidence and a reminder of My Presence and love in the world.
Yield to My beautiful design for you, full of love and tremendous purpose. You are a good person, so stop questioning that. Smart, thoughtful, capable, loving, – and oh-so-sensitive. I see you trying very hard to make life special and supportive to others. You care, deeply. You, My dear, make a positive difference in the world. Get back on track believing this. Don’t let self-doubt shake this foundational truth about you. Go, – be with others and picture yourself comfortable in these shoes of sociability. Be the personable you I created. Remember who formed you!
Let Me fill you with good words today, -self-talk that builds up rather than tears down. Stop berating yourself in such hurtful and demeaning ways. I want to lavish you with renewed self-confidence, fueled by My Light that is woven into your very being. I designed you with great love and attention to every detail. Let’s work on an inner song with loving lyrics, secretly celebrating who you are for a change. Ruminate on the things you like best about yourself. No more blame and shame or hurtful words. You are My beloved!
When utter truth comes at you, you may feel it choke in your throat or sting your eyes with tears. Facing the truth can be hard and scary. Admitting it and acknowledging it to others may seem too hard, making you “too vulnerable”, but remember I am with you in everything. I am the way, the truth, and the life. This means I’ll show you the way to live a truthful life. Together we can address whatever is holding you back. You don’t have to be so afraid or isolated in your thoughts and ways. I am a trustworthy God and companion in all things.
What will it take for you to love yourself more? You don’t have to wait for the next accomplishment or compliment to come your way. If you remain stuck in habits of constant self-criticism it will be hard for love to stick to you. Tell that ego-driven mind to settle down and not be fed by lies. Remind yourself that you are loved, lovable, and likable right now, -just as you are and just as I designed you to be. This doesn’t have to “earned”; it is the truth. Embrace your Light within. Let My love rule and heal your capacity for self-love.
It pains Me to hear you beating yourself up so much on the inside. Your unrelenting self-critical thoughts are doing damage to My beautiful creation. Those exaggerated images of your flaws are blown out of proportion. Oh My Child, come to Me to hear the truth and find the reassurance you need. Look up, My beloved, and recognize the Goodness I designed and see in you. I long to restore your self-image to its natural state of ease and radiance. Trust Me, believing that you are good, kind, and capable. You are a reflection of Me. Try being gentle and kind in your self-talk today.
I am with you in your brokenness. It is through the chips and cracks that I can seep in and become a part of you. Acknowledge My Presence in you. Stop feeling like you have to strive for some intangible goal of “worthiness”. See My unconditional love and acceptance reflected back to you when you look in the mirror. Learn to be tender with yourself so that you can mend from unpleasant experiences. Trust My love and acceptance, for this is truth.
Speaking truth can be a lonely place. You have eyes that see and a heart that longs for acceptance and belonging, but sometimes the ones you want to be close to cause hurt and disappointment when you speak truth. I will send supportive people to you along the way, giving you refuge for your soul in these encounters. Stay strong, facing bitter winds of rejection. Know that I will hold you upright even in the roughest challenges. I am always with you, hemming you in before, beside, and behind you.
Let people love you. Take in their kind words of acknowledgement, affection, or even admiration without your usual tendency to rip it all apart with internal self-criticism or outward deflection. I long for you to feel at peace and worthy of love. Reaching a place of self-acceptance requires releasing doubt and old traces of self-hatred. No one else is nearly as hard on you as you are of yourself. Allow My Love and Grace to enter in, deeply washing over your habit of self-rejection with compassion. Try seeing yourself through My eyes that love you unconditionally. I even love on you through others, too. Let us in; don’t close off or deflect genuine affection when it comes your way. Take it in, trusting in the truth of your worthiness.
