You are doing your best. I see that. I know how the words of others have wounded your pride, though. I need you to move on. Don’t let these slights and mishaps shape who you are. I can even help you muster up being humble and kind toward them. Your forgiving stance will speak to others in unseen ways. Don’t fall prey to thinking you have to punish others. Instead, be the kind of person who can make this hurt be healed. I will help you be stronger as a result.

I love you even when you are annoyed and angry and your face scrunches up with visible disdain or criticism toward others. This doesn’t make you a “bad person”. I still love you, even then. With that said, I also want you to bring those annoyances, judgements, and criticism of others and lay it all at My feet. Release your thoughts into My capable, problem-solving hands. Inhale forgiveness and fresh perspective. What if I tell you I need those people right where they are and I want you right there with them? I have My reasons, which you cannot always see. Inhale trust for My design at work; exhale a greater acceptance of others, because all belong to Me equally.

Offer Grace to others when they annoy or offend you. Many are just reacting out of their own insecurities. You can stop fretting about how you come across. You are YOU: bold, and with sound opinions. It’s OK to be strong. People may also despise you because of your confidence, but again, that’s likely because of their own insecurity. You don’t have to be subdued just to make others more comfortable. Don’t stop being you or thinking you have to stifle your voice. Be the person I made you to be. When I call you to speak, speak boldly. When I nudge you to listen, listen attentively. As you practice self-acceptance, you also become more accepting of others. Ask for pardon when you offend or when you’ve insisted on being “right” instead of being open to hearing other’s point of view. Acknowledge differences, offering dignity and respect at your core. That’s how My love and purpose is manifested in the world.

BE LOVING. It’s that simple! Although I get it, – it’s not always easy to do, – especially when your feelings have been hurt. Ask for My help to soften your heart toward those who have offended you or let you down. I can heal all sorts of wounds – both physical and emotional. Every day you look more radiant to Me as you practice learning to love deeply. Forgiving and moving on, offering grace to others, – these are all actions that stem from My heart of Love, which is embedded in you. Trust your gut on when to use boundaries or when to ease up and let down your guard. I will help you determine which thing to do so that glimpses of My kindness can be seen in the world. You are My vessel for love.

When you are worn out, sad, or fearful, I see it all. Today is a new day, though. I ask you to attend to self-care first before helping others. When you feel unsafe, fragile, or broken, I am here; at work in you and in your life. Your Goodness touches others in ways you don’t even realize. Instead of focusing on what you haven’t gotten done, replenish your spirit by knowing My renewing Grace is free. I am here to help you be self-forgiving and clean out those messy thoughts trying to put yourself down. Find rest and comfort with Me as we rebuild your strength and self-esteem.

I am a God of ABUNDANCE. Abundant supply, Grace, and capacity to forgive. Receive your fill without guilt or shame. By knowing you will have more than enough of what you need, you can use My supply to honor Me and give of yourself freely. Doing My work by faithfully walking with trust in My plans for you can bring great reward to you and to others. You don’t have to be afraid that what you offer isn’t enough. I love you, tenderly and affectionately.

Hear Me telling you I am delighted with you! Why do you question and second-guess your every thought and actions with such criticism? That is not how I see you. Your expectation bar may be set a little too high, not allowing room for error and Grace to fill in. Move that bar to a more reasonable, rational, and attainable level. Be kind to yourself in your head, especially as you start to recognize My overwhelmingly unconditional love for you. Bask in this truth, and push the critic far away today, for that voice has no place of belonging in you.

All is well as you travel with Me. Step by step we can walk hand-in-hand. You don’t have to worry about tracking the mileage or measuring your accomplishments. Only I know the impact your life and actions are having on My world. Continue to allow Me to work in and through you. Part of this process calls you to love yourself as I love you. Your constant worry or self-criticism is not helpful. If there is any attribute that requires refining, change, or forgiveness, I will enlighten you to that fact. Otherwise, proceed with abandon, allowing your true self to emerge. I love you just as you are: relatable, kind, and not flawless.

Why are you still carrying around that shame inside your head? When I say you are forgiven, it is a done deal. There’s no need to keep going back and rehashing scenes in your head, beating yourself up over words or actions you now regret. Glance at them if you must, but only to learn what you want to aim to do differently in the future. Other than that, I call you to love yourself and accept the forgiveness and grace that’s already been awarded by Me. I want you to live a life of peace and self-acceptance, knowing that you are loved by Me and that is enough.

Each day people will do small deeds that are inconsiderate or unkind. Sometimes big injustices happen. Even so, I want you to release these irritations and frustrations into My care. Don’t allow your thoughts and emotions to run wild with ideas about how to tell others off or bring about justice on your own. This wastes important energy and will distract you from the peace and joy available within. Don’t get pulled off track today or be derailed by small injustices. Releasing things to My care doesn’t make you a “doormat”. It takes great strength of character to choose to walk away or to treat others with dignity and respect despite their behavior. My way is better. My way will free you and allow you to rise above any circumstance with great calm and internal respect. Pray for your enemies, even if this does not come easily. I will give you the grace, strength and wisdom in how to handle the situation if your heart is intent upon following My way.
