Nothing to Prove

You have nothing to prove today. You are and can be a beacon of Light to every room you enter, so walk with confidence knowing you are truly loved and valued. Don’t worry about putting on a show for others. People find your presence comforting and enjoyable, so smile inwardly and outwardly at this truth. Embrace and love your whole self; no more awkward shyness is needed. It’s good to love and be at peace with yourself. Lead others by example, walking confidently in My truth.

Soften Up

Take time to relax and remember that I have you in the palm of My hands. Cling to Me as I work on washing away old hurts, making you impervious to them over time. I’m not One to ask you to “toughen up”. Rather, I want you to soften up on yourself. As you learn to cut yourself some slack, you will find it easier to accept others are they are, as well. You won’t be as susceptible to the sting of off-handed remarks that tend to hurt or offend you. There’s no need to feel defensive when your confidence and assurance lies with Me.

You Are a Big Deal

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.

Susceptible to Anxious Ways of Thinking

You are susceptible to old, anxious ways of thinking: fearing that you’ve somehow ‘done something wrong’ or are ‘not measuring up to some yard stick of approval’ by Me or by others. When these thoughts come up, I want you to recognize them as false and throw them out of your head. Mentally, toss them out of the window and into the trash, because My love for you is unchanged and ever-steady. I am readily available and My love is unending. Any messages trying to tell you otherwise or steal your confidence and peace are not brought on by Me, your loving Creator. Listen to My truth: you are enough and you are beloved.

Hush the Critical Voice

Be gentle on yourself today. Hush the critical voice, holding tight to the truth that you are loved and likeable. This life is not about being perfect. You are not ‘bad’ when you experience emotional reactions to circumstances or interactions. If you are triggered by something another says or does, step back and ask for My help with perspective. I’ll give you the words to say and the loving way to respond which validates you yet maintains the dignity of others. You are oh-so-valuable to Me. I desire for you to find and keep inner peace. The best way there is to hold My hand hourly.

Take a Break from Constant Pressure

I know you intimately, including your good intentions and efforts to do right in the world. Remember, though, that your value is not placed in works. Your worth comes from who you are innately, by My design. Your attributes, skills, interest, passions, and flaws all combine into a divinely beautiful package. Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself today, enjoying your crazy, silly side, too. My ways are serious business but include laughter and joy. Take a break from the constant pressure to plan, preside, and predict. Look for the lighter side of things today as you practice relaxing. You can lighten up with My help. 

Step Out With Confidence

You are My delight, yet you mostly do not recognize it. Why do you have such difficulty believing this? Come to Me. Step forward out of the dark corners you stay shadowed in. I want you to be fully seen. Let My tears of Grace wash any past shame or regret away. If there are talents and skills you are timid about, hear My encouragement to bring them forward. I need all of you, not just the pieces you assess as “good enough”. Hold nothing back from My tender gaze. Allow My Light to permeate, warming you at your core and highlighting the Goodness I have designed in you as your Creator. Step out today with confidence in your true worth. 

Let Me Help You With That

I am a God who loves you. The world has messed you up a bit. I don’t control that part because I allow you and others to make your own choices. Choosing to love and forgive is hard on your own. Let Me help you with that. I also ask you to love yourself, which may involve self-forgiveness and recognition of your true value and likability. I can’t control what you tell yourself daily, but it breaks My heart when you despise or chastise your inner self. Ask for My help to be kind, loving, and forgiving instead – especially to yourself first. This will spill onto your interactions with others.
