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 True Worth

Let’s talk about your value and worth. You tie it to so many unpredictable variables that are fragile, flawed, and ultimately unsupportive. The opinions of others are heavily tainted by their own experiences and opinions, which most of the time has nothing to do with you. The brief moments where you may be acknowledged by or shown appreciation from others will never sustain your inherent sense of being valued. It’s only by looking into My loving gaze that you can see and hold on to your true worth. Turn to Me often to see what “unconditional” means, and allow My tender Presence to heal your bruised ego. I love you just as you are, and you are truly precious cargo that I carry with Me. I deem to protect and treasure you always.

No Need to be Carrying Shame

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.

Capable of Being at Peace

You are full of valid feelings and emotions, yet you are so hard on yourself, judging yourself too critically. I made you capable of being at peace. You are loving and loved! As you treat yourself with tenderness, the emotions that surface will be freed. With practice you can learn to offer yourself better self-acceptance. Once you do that, laughter will well up more freely. Let Me pour out My Grace on you, soothing the anxiety and washing away tension. Allow yourself to picture and live a life of happiness and ease. You can trust and believe that this is actually what I want for you.

Embracing All the Sides of You

You are getting it, and starting to see that My view of you and My plans for you include loving and appreciating yourself more exactly as you are. I’ve instilled a bold drive in you just as much as a soft, sensitive side. I created you to shout as much as to whisper, to laugh as well as to weep. You are not only worthy of attending to others, but also of being attended to by Me and others. I want you to work at uncovering and tenderly embracing all the sides of you that you’ve tried to hide internally instead of selecting only what you think is appropriate or acceptable outwardly. Reveal it all to Me, because I like you just the way you are and I want you to like yourself, too.

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.

Chip Away at that Self-Critical Veneer

Keep listening. Listen harder, – deeper, – until the truth comes piercing through. My love for you craves to break down the walls your inner critic has built up, breaking through the shame, guilt, and regrets. The past is in the past. Let’s chip away at that self-critical veneer until you find yourself at peace within. Once you can accept and embrace yourself as someone worthy of attention, kindness, and love, you will be more at ease around and accepting toward others. Anxiety will melt away. You can make amends as needed, but you also don’t have to spend your life being so apologetic all the time. Seek peace and follow after it by assuming a posture of self-acceptance.

Allow Yourself to Like Yourself

You know Me. I can take the pressure off a little as you sit with Me, allowing Me to care for you. You are endearing to Me with the ways you love and care, – always trying so hard. Allow yourself to like yourself today. Stop picking every little thing apart and choose to be accepting and kind toward yourself. See how life-changing this can be!

Stop Using Guilt & Worry As Motivators

My love for you is not dispensed only by your good works or positive intentions. My love is totally free and ever-available. This is hard to wrap your head around because you are always trying so hard to “do what’s right” and be “good/kind/considerate enough”. Let Me tell you again that you are already “good enough” for Me and I love you completely as you are. Think about how knowing and trusting the truth of these words may change how you act and think today. Stop using guilt and worry as your motivators. Simply be compelled to be lovingly accepting of yourself and others, relaxing into this God-fueled mindset. As you learn to show compassion for yourself this will ease your distress.

Feeling Bad About Yourself

I see you feeling bad about yourself. I’m sorry that you struggle like this, and I compassionately hear every word of self-talk. When your spirit has been damaged or dejected, it’s easy to feel down. Try recognizing that this same spirit in you is part of Me, – resilient, kind, capable, and beautiful. That Spirit is bigger than any hurt. You can overcome any trial with Me as part of you. Be brave enough to love yourself even when misleading thoughts try to tell  you otherwise. You, My Child, are lovely through and through. You are wonderful just as you are. Repeat that until it seeps into every corner and takes hold.
