Handling Disagreements

In this world there will always be disagreements. Sometimes the wayfinding isn’t clear-cut. It’s okay to have your own opinions, but it’s also important to seek to understand others. Hear them out, and if necessary, agree to disagree. You can share your views diplomatically when they are tempered by My Grace. Ask for My help to ‘keep your cool’, and start every comment by considering the most loving and compassionate intention you can back it up with. I will give you the words to say and equip you with the way to phrase it. Aim to treat all with dignity and respect. Trust Me to help.

You Are My Masterpiece

You are My masterpiece! How I’ve loved painting, sculpting, and rearranging you into a beautiful image. Do you recognize the beauty in you? How I would love to see you walking confidently today. Can you imagine the possibilities if you saw yourself as fully acceptable, accepted, richly blessed, and basking in grace? If only you would allow yourself to trust this truth using a simple act of breathing, “I choose to believe”. You can do this! It’s not egotistical to choose self-acceptance when viewing through the lens of My eye. I want goodness to surround you, and I desire for you to receive My love for you. Say yes! Say thank you. Choose to believe; that’s all I ask.

Don’t Get Pulled Off Track Today

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.

Practice Love and Acceptance

So much of the world is presented in extremes: “right” vs. “wrong”; “my way” vs. “your way”. I am much more tolerant of frailties and misgivings. My will is for what is full of Goodness and Love, – the extreme Light of the world. I desire for you to practice that kind of love and acceptance of others even in their places of darkness. People get overshadowed by pride, ego, fear, and defensiveness. These get cloaked in anger, retaliation, gossip, and vengefulness. The best way to combat darkness is with LIGHT, – My Light. Picture yourself cloaked in shining garments, radiant with peace. You can be an element of Grace and Light in the world. Even if it’s only in one corner today, you can light up a room. I will equip you as you ask for help. Let Goodness triumph over darkness today; do not fear, for I will give you safety and reassurance.

Saving Grace

Saving Grace: these are words to meditate on. My Grace saves. My Grace has enough supply to rescue you and those you care about from any of their troubles. Your job is not always to fix  problems. Consider this: your job may be to call upon My Grace, or to direct others to do so. In My Grace there is enough wisdom, stamina, and peace for all. Do you know My Grace? Have you sought it out lately? I love to give it freely; you merely have to step up to the plate and ask for it to be served. I am a generous God. People mistakenly think I am stingy when it comes to helping when they are in the middle of their troubles, but this is completely wrong. It is in times of trouble that My Grace pours out in gallons, washing over the whole scene and bathing those in need.

The Loving Response

The world wants to fill the space in your head with accusations, criticisms, and complaints. These hurt your heart. I disdain evil, corruption, and hurtful things. Yet I always find a way to respond with love, forgiveness, and hope for a better future where my children also choose to love instead of cause or reciprocate hurt. If you are faced with a situation that wrestles with your head or heart, seek My voice guiding you to the most loving response. Even if you don’t agree with the person or situation, choose to treat them with dignity. You will find that peace reigns when you do this. I will bless you with that kind of distancing and peace. Rise above. Do good unto others. Seek My kingdom first, knowing that My Grace is sufficient to help you with all of these things.

Holding On To Offenses

I want you to continue to soften your heart. Holding on to offenses will not serve you well. If you’re stuck with lasting bitterness and distrust, come to Me. Ask for My help to find and share Grace with those who have hurt you. I want to free you of that burden and help you access peace again. As you practice forgiveness and show mercy, it is you who will receive the most benefit.

Slowing

I am aiming you toward a slower pace. When you have less activity going on you can be more observant. My Love arrives not because of your performance or accomplishments. Rather, it arrives by Grace in moments of time glimpsed here and there. You’ll miss its impact when you are too busy or frantic to take notice. Be grateful for less mobility right now. Come, hang out with Me in the stillness, observing what begins to stand out and make sense to you. My gifts will arrive most clearly in your slowing.

I Make Things Fall Into Place

Ask Me to help quiet your busy mind. Breathe in the peace and calm I surround you with. Picture that My intentions for you are Good. When you release your futile attempts to control things around you, you can then realize I help make things fall into place. Much of your stress can be whisked away. Yes, you will have daily challenges, struggles, and limitations, but elect to rise above them on the rock I provide. Step up with My perspective and take view of My Grace, which will always aid you in resolving the matter of the moment. When you feel most flustered by all that is coming at you, stand still and recognize I am at your side. Nothing can stand against us. 

Relax Your Judgmental Standards

Try being gentle on yourself. See how this influences your ability to give others Grace, too. There is wiggle room for more kindness to be shared when you relax your judgmental standards and let down your guard. Whenever you hold tight to offenses, I don’t have much space to work in you. The same is true for when you hang on to self-criticism. As you recognize these as barriers to love, bring them before Me as your ultimate Judge. See how I pardon offenses and erase criticism. Watch Me soften your heart and bring you Peace.
