My Beloved Child,
Today I have something very important on My heart and mind that I need to talk to you about.
I want you to experience more of My gentleness and kindness.
I want you to know that I never lose my temper or patience with you. I never use harsh words or get angry with you. My love is of the gentle sort. The motivation of My love is not to change you (that’s already finished). I love you because you are lovable.
My relationship with you isn’t remotely based upon how you perform.
I don’t base how I relate to you on whether you’ve been good or bad, or naughty or nice. I don’t have a list or check it twice. That’s Santa! I don’t withdraw, or punish you, or take back My blessing when you sin or miss the mark. That’s not the kind of Dad I am. I am always kind, always patient, always loving, always generous, always gentle. My love for you is unstoppable. It cannot be quenched. There’s absolutely nothing that can change who you are in My eyes.
You are My beloved, My precious child, the one in whom I delight.
You will never be more loved by Me than you are right at this moment. I won’t love you more when you’ve “cleaned up your act.” I won’t love you more when you figure things out. I won’t love you more once you fulfill your destiny or change the world around you.
My love isn’t based on your performance. It’s based on who I am as a person, as a Dad, as your Dad.
When Holy Spirit, Jesus, and I chose you in Christ before the worlds were formed, We never once considered your imperfections. We didn’t even notice them. We’ve never seen you as separate from Our perfection. We’ve always been able to separate who you are from what you do.
It’s you, My child, that needs to see yourself differently.
You’re the one who needs to learn how to separate who you are from what you do. It’s you who needs to choose to love you. It’s you who needs to be kind and patient and loving and generous and gentle with yourself. It’s you who needs to forgive yourself for not being perfect apart from Me. How about you just stop trying to be perfect all together and recognize that I’ve already perfected you?
Today, I want you to really think about how you talk to and treat yourself.
I also want you to spend a few moments, right here and now, forgiving yourself for not living up to your own expectations. Stop agreeing with the accuser, who is always pointing out your imperfections, hoping that you’ll condemn yourself and separate yourself from Me and My love. Instead, recognize that it’s impossible to be separated from Me.
Choose My mercy and make peace with yourself.
Accept yourself, imperfections and all, and give yourself permission to love what I love. Trust My opinion, child. Believe the Gospel. Believe that you are lovable because I made you that way. In Christ, there is nothing else for you to do except to simply be loved.
So, be loved, My child, Be the beloved!
