Just As Lovely With Flaws

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.

Push the Critic Far Away

Hear Me telling you I am delighted with you! Why do you question and second-guess your every thought and actions with such criticism? That is not how I see you. Your expectation bar may be set a little too high, not allowing room for error and Grace to fill in. Move that bar to a more reasonable, rational, and attainable level. Be kind to yourself in your head, especially as you start to recognize My overwhelmingly unconditional love for you. Bask in this truth, and push the critic far away today, for that voice has no place of belonging in you.

The Art of Being Hopeful

I have so much in store for you! But unlike a child whose anticipation makes them cry out, “I can’t wait!”, – I ask you to be a mature adult who has come to know the importance of waiting. You can still anticipate great outcomes. That is how hope works. Keep your eyes focused on the glorious horizon of all good things to come. Some may even occur in this day ahead! Yes, practice the art of being hopeful. Turn away from negative thinking. Patiently accept each task before you today, secretly knowing the ultimate truth: that I am yours and you are Mine for all times.

Smoother Paths

I am going to clear your thoughts. You can trust Me to help. I will guide you onto smoother paths when you trust Me enough to let Me lead. Nothing will be too hard for you. NOTHING, – because I am here to help and to uplift you with energy and support. I know you get scared and anxious. I see your fears and I hold every single one of them with compassion. All I can say right now is “Don’t worry today. I am helping behind the scenes, and I love you.” Remind yourself of this truth often and it will calm you. Stay grounded in My very real love for you.

I’m Glad You Showed Up

It’s been a while since you’ve listened for My voice, but that’s okay. I’m just glad you showed up today with interest in what I have to say. My message for you is simple: I love you fully and completely, exactly as you are without any disclaimers over things you think disappoint Me. Start fresh today with that truth. “Tabula Rosa” – a blank slate without any dings on your record. Walk with a lighter step and brighter affect knowing you can be at peace with all things reconciled until Me. It’s easier to live joyfully when you embrace this truth.

When You Berate Yourself

You are My beautiful creation. I pride Myself for who you are and ‘how you turned out’. It pains me whenever you try to be something other than yourself, or when you berate yourself. I made you with an engaging personality. It’s not healthy to constantly second-guess your words and actions that come instinctively out of you. Don’t fear being yourself, or even being the center of attention at times. I set up opportunities for you to be there so that My light can shine brightly through you. I in you, you in Me. Your task is to learn to allow for this to be so and walk in this truth.

How to Spend Your Time

Bask in the intimacy of our relationship today. Take joy and comfort in knowing I see you as you sleep, arise, and in your every move. Talk with Me often in your head, acknowledging things you notice, questions you face, and decisions you must make. I can help you choose how to spend your time and what to focus on wisely. Be inspired to do more knowing I place interests, goals, and perspective all as part of My great plan for you. Nothing you do or say goes unnoticed by Me. I don’t criticize your every move, either. I want you to see Me as your great encourager, motioning you to places, tasks, and conversations full of Goodness and meaning. I am powerfully present in it all. Know that you are loved first, then walk into your day engulfed in the grace of this truth.

Holy Things Occur

As you open yourself to My guidance, holy things occur. Lives are touched by your compassion. Your sensitivity allows you to connect to others with an innate sense of trustworthiness, which gives them the message it is safe to open up. Speak truth, show kindness, and act lovingly. All of this is embedded in Grace. Holy touch, holy eyes that see and ears that hear. Allow holiness to take over your life daily, hourly, and one task at a time. This doesn’t have to be a daunting or unreachable request. My message is simple: you are already holy in My likeness as you practice being present in these ways to others.

Be Unhurried

Go today amidst the noise and haste, walking a different pace. Be calm when confronted with any frazzled situations that arise, knowing that I AM. Be unhurried, – mindful and intentional in your decision making. I will put deliberate thoughts for you to consider and to guide you. People seek wisdom and justice. You can be a conduit for both of these as you listen for My still, small voice. I equip you not as an ego-booster but as a leader. I need your ears to hear Me so that your voice can speak truths, reassurances, and clarity. Feed those I put on your path, and watch miraculous work happening all around you.

Hopeful Plans For You

Whenever a new year arises, people tend to reflect on where they’ve been and possibilities for where they are going. Be cautious about getting caught up in old ruts where your tires spin in the mud of regret. Also watch out for fear-based projections about what is around the corner,  anticipating that things won’t turn out as you would like or will be too hard to manage. Neither of these things are true. I am a loving God with hopeful plans in store for you. I’ll carry you through hard times and open doors for Good things to arrive in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Choose to concentrate on living fully present in today, and hand Me your past and future. This is how you build new habits of peace of mind.
