Sweep Away the Critical Voice
You don’t have to be as susceptible to the critical voice as you used to be. You are “onto it” by now, – recognizing the deceit and inaccuracy it tries to convince you is true. The only truth is that you already belong to Me, and My love for you is strong, invincible, and unconditional. No trickery of thought can take that away. Push those old self-critical ways out the door and sweep the porch off, removing any remaining dusty negativity or doubt. Re-enter your home with Me protecting you as you live with ease and peaceful confidence intact.

Remember to concentrate only on today, recalling My assurance that you are right where I need you to be for today’s plan and purposes. When self-doubt tries to creep in and take over your mind, brush it away with a firm stance. Let confidence rule the day, embracing your assets and virtues instead of over-emphasizing minor flaws. Be the encourager, giving off your radiant and positive Light that shines from within. Others are drawn to this Light, and I need and want you at your brightest today.

You are bright and beautiful. Your busy head spins with bright thoughts and dark ones intermingled, and hardly a quiet moment. Today, if you notice the cogs on that wheel working double-time, try shutting off the power and allow yourself to be still. Yes, – be still, and know that I am God. I love you just as you are. There’s no need to prove yourself through performance. Be still, and be reassured that all is well for everything beyond your control. I am working to relieve you and protect you from harm. I am trustworthy. Take heart in the stillness as you refocus and are revived.

Your calling and sense of purpose may be hard for you to recognize when what you are doing comes so naturally to you. It might not always stand out to you, but I need you right where you are, attending well to others in your circle of influence. No more than that is needed for now. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking what you do or who you are is ‘no big deal’. You, – your life, interests, and interactions, – matter to Me. Nothing goes unnoticed. Even your emotions are of great value. None of it is insignificant. Stand tall, owning up to the big deal I created you to be.

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! 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.

Oh, My tender-hearted one. I see and hear your hidden self-reproach. Even though others have no idea how hard you are on yourself, I see it and hear it. Sit with Me a while and feel My reassuring arm of protection and comfort around your shoulders. Let’s get back at it today, shaking the dust of yesterday from your feet. Brush off the discouragement and rid yourself of the mean things you’ve told yourself. You don’t need that negativity taking up space in your head, – nor do I want that for you. Replace it with My reassurance that you are loved, you are well, and you are needed. Repeat this mantra throughout the day, because it is My truth for you, and My truth is all that matters.

I am whispering to you. So often My lambs do not hear My voice but it is there, beckoning them to safer ground and providing affection, encouragement, and understanding. Sometimes that safer ground is higher ground, – one that calls you to make harder steps or pushes you further than you planned for, – but it is always worth the effort. The sights and peacefulness this higher ground brings is far more satisfying than the immediate, fleeting pleasures that tug at you and try to distract or misguide you along the way. My way is steady and sure. Take the high ground today at all costs. When the steps seem steep, challenging, or unsteady, I will take your elbow. I never let go of you. Join Me in the direction I prefer and have designed for you. Even when My lambs stray off the intended path, My hand is outstretched and waiting to guide them home.

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.

Daily I call you to re-examine what you are saying to yourself. When old tapes creep up and replay harmful or hurtful words of shame, turn immediately to Me for reassurance. I will help you defy those messages. I will even help erase and replace them. How beloved and great I think you are. It’s actually part of My will for you to see yourself as Good, talented, capable, loving and worthy of attention. Set boundaries against those who make you feel otherwise. I will send faithful companions your way as you make room in your life for a better support system. These companions will provide a 2-way street of healthy interactions. Ask for My help; seek and ye shall find.
