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.

You are God’s beloved, – a child of God, – so, believe it. Knowing this and trusting Me in this truth are two different things, but both are equally important. To know is to comprehend deep within, ingesting the words and shedding light on negative thought habits that try to tell you otherwise. God shows favor and delight in you, with great affection. Trusting this truth is taking all of this to the next level by putting into action self-care, self-confidence, and self-acceptance. When you trust that you are loved, defensiveness and false pretenses go down and fade away so the real you can shine without feeling daunted. Show love to yourself and this will radiate out, helping you to love others with ease, insight, and patience. Grasp what it feels like to know and trust God’s love for you.

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.

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.

Let Me inspire you. If you linger at My table long enough, you’ll feel the nudges I am trying to send. You will hear, feel, and know when it is time to move vs. when you need to be still. When to reach out and connect vs. when to hole up and recover. How to be the helper vs. when to ask for help. For now, be the encourager I created you to be. This starts by knowing you are enough, just as you are. Love and affirm all the intricate truths and facets of yourself. You are beautiful to Me just as you are, and I have so much still in store for you. You can be excited about that!

What you give and share of yourself is important. You are enough. I need you present to others today, but first and foremost I want you present before Me. Let Me wash your face with Grace and cleanse your eyes with holy perspective. Start fresh by loving yourself with a clean slate of self-acceptance. Bring this whole self in for renewal. This divine makeover starts from the inside with your self-talk. Show love and kindness to yourself and this will emanate outwardly. Allow your true worth to be acknowledged and accepted, readying you for things ahead. You are lovely, just as you are.

You are not a mess. Even though there are parts of you that you wish were different, I love you exactly as you are. How much happier you would be if you stopped criticizing yourself all the time. Accept what is, and move on. Stop trying so hard to change. Allow yourself to be content within yourself here and now. So much of what you worry about doesn’t ever come true and doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. Be here now, and find peace in the present.

Why can’t you seem to see how beautiful you are, just as you are? Comparison to others skews perspective. You are loved and beloved by Me, so what more is needed? Be validated in these truths – that you are “enough” and your enjoyable light draws others in specifically because of who you are . Go with peace and confidence into today, relying on My belief in and love for you.

There’s nothing you have to prove today. Start from there, and then move through your day in complete trust that you are A-OK and just the right person for whatever is in front of you. You can take a back seat when others need the lead or the limelight. All is well and you can be at ease, trusting My love for you just as you are.

I am planning to be present in every aspect of your day. You can count on Me to be there with and for you. Take comfort in this and be confident that you are in the right place at the right time with the right talents and abilities to be who you are and to do what you do well. I will grace you with all the skills needed. As you work on accepting yourself, you show others the way to be at ease, too. Enjoy your day.
