Try being less critical of yourself and see how this impacts your ability to show Grace better to others. Everyone has flaws, but this does not make anyone less-than-perfect in My eyes. I design all with unique traits, and imperfections have their place in making the world more relatable. Instead of judging yourself and others so harshly, try viewing shortcomings with a different lens, knowing no one is better or less than anyone else from My perspective. Using this, you will be better able to love unconditionally, including how well you love yourself. See how this enables you to be more at peace deep inside, too.

You are hungry for wellness. In order to be made well, it is important that you recognize you’re already well-made by Me. Find this holy wholeness at your core, in spiritual realms of Goodness woven into every fiber of your being. I mean that! Instead of focusing on what is broken, out of shape, or “imperfect”, tap into seeing the truth of My perfect design. I love you exactly as you are. Find that place inside your soul that knows this to be true, and reintroduce yourself. Commit to taking care of yourself while also being kind to yourself at all costs. This is where true wellness comes into fruition.

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.

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.

I am with you every step of the way. I don’t call you to be perfect. You will have minor irritations in this world, which don’t make you a bad person. In these irritable moments, just pause and inhale deeply. Hear Me acknowledging, “I hear you. I know you. I get it.” Remember that this, too, shall pass. Perhaps through this internal dialogue with Me, the mere act of having Me validate your experience will be the calming effect you need to endure this short-term storm. Turn to Me to live with ease like that.

You are perfectly imperfect, and that’s exactly how I designed you. I want you to not only accept this truth, but to embrace and celebrate it with confidence and joy! Stop worrying about upholding pretenses of ‘having it all together’, ‘being on top of things,’ or being the one who’s ‘got it goin’ on’. Just walk humbly -yet confidently!- in the shoes I provide you with for today. No more, no less. You can trust that I like and love you just the way you are.

Truly, I urge you to take the pressure off. Subtly and pervasively, you have been ingrained to be constantly doing, ‘performing’, accomplishing, and ‘succeeding’. It must be exhausting, always trying to measure up to self-imposed standards of perfection. My expectations are radically different. Certainly I appreciate your effort, drive, and skills; but I also appreciate quiet time spent with Me, without agendas. Practice a spiritual aim of being present in the moment, and perhaps less time-oriented. Just “be”, and see the benefit of My peace descending as a result.

Go easy on yourself. Bit by bit, things will get done. You don’t have to give in to being frantic. I make things manageable when you realize it is My agenda you serve today. Give yourself some of My Grace, and offer it to others. Even if it looks on the outside like things aren’t coming together, you can rest assured that My design is Good and well-thought-out. I need you right where you are today and I’m working to bring Good out of suffering. I never expect perfection, – only a willing Spirit.
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.
Remember that your “best” is good enough. You don’t have to strive for perfection or aim to tie up all the loose ends today. One day, one piece at a time. Allow space for some things to be messy, cluttered, and piled up. You were never designed to take care of everything all at once. Find your joy again in sitting with Me next to your piles. It’s okay. We will make our way through.
