I see, Lord, that there is a little one deep inside of me who is afraid, lonely, hurting and hungry. He or she needs to be held in arms, which are secure and strong.
Thank you, Father God, that your arms are like that, and right now you are reaching down inside me to enfold that baby with the warmth and strength of your own being.
I know that you, God the Father, are delighted with the little one whom you fashioned out of your own heart of love.
This one, Lord, is chosen and precious, a treasure to you. You are pouring your sweet light into your child till all hunger is satisfied; all anxiety is settled out, all fears calmed.
Hold this one, Lord until the love that you are permeates every cell of my being and enables me to melt into you, trusting.
Thank you, Father that you are light pushing back darkness; you are music displacing noise; you are a perfectly safe place to lie down to rest. You will never leave; nor will your love fail.
Lord, please lift off of my little child the oppressive burden of performing and set me free inside to be myself.
“Lord, set me free from all bondages—even anxiety for them- and give me the root-level courage to make good choices and to become who I am in you, not just what I want to be.” (Eph. 3:16)
“Lord, take away the dread seriousness of life and give my little inner self the freedom to goof and laugh at myself – to stomp my foot, say a nasty word, get dirt all over my clothes, make mistakes and know that you are still there with open arms and an understanding heart.
God, you are the only one who can reach to the child inside to enable my little one to forgive and be forgiven. Help me to realize that I am loved the same whether I do it right or whether I do it wrong.
Together we can forgive and be forgiven.
This is one of my favorite prayers. I needed to keep verbalizing again and again, giving power to the words that I was worthy of God’s love.
I somehow developed over the years a belief system that I needed to be perfect for a perfect God.
Take action: First comes awareness, then acceptance and then take action to change a destructive belief system to a belief that is healthy and positive.
I needed to repeat over and over statements like these: I am worthy, I am lovable, I am ok just the way I am, God doesn’t make junk.
Just because some people are not capable of loving me the way I think they should, does not mean that I am unlovable.
I have learned that I am worthy of God’s love and forgiveness and so are each of you.
If you are asking God for forgiveness when I walk through the Holy Door, then you will need to develop a belief that you are worthy of receiving love and forgiveness from God and then open up your heart and soul to receive.
Do not miss out on this blessing. Keep working on this. It will take approximately 35 days to get to Santiago. After 35 days, hopefully your spirit will be able to receive the divine love and forgiveness that will be available for you to receive.
Just took off from Newark, 9:05 pm
That is all for today!!! Seven to eight hour flight ahead.
Prayer for today
God help me accept your love and forgiveness today and every day until I believe it deep down in my heart and spirit and soul.
We are delayed at Newark airport. The plane is starting to slowly creep down to the runway. We were to leave at 7:30 and it is 8:46 and we still have not taken off.
You are not going to believe this. We were ready to take off and we had to turn around because the baggage load was out of balance.
How many times is the heavy load we carry out of balance. We not only carry our own baggage but we offer to carry many other people’s baggage.
Get honest with your own situation and starting giving back the baggage that is not yours.
Take your own baggage and unpack it and don’t carry it around anymore.
Lots of love, Esther Mae
