“Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place or thing – unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place or situation being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.” (BB, 449)
As of late, many have asked me for prayers of encouragement and assistance walking through the difficulties that life can bring: relationships, health issues, family problems financial woes; the list is infinitum.
One main theme ran true in each situation, acceptance.
If I choose to embrace it, acceptance can be my key to peaceful living.
When I stop living in the problem and start seeking spiritual solutions, a change within happens.
Acceptance is the act of listening to the inner urgings of Spirit and not the chatter of another.
“This is a new day. There is no need to rush; just be and let everything flow. Let life go!”
When one accepts a situation being as it is, we can then make a path ready to receive the spiritual assistance, which is ours for the taking. The help we receive can come through many avenues. God works through others when we are not looking.
During a time of change, I received two different passages with the same numbers 29:11 via e-mail, from two wonderful friends, unknown to one another.
I saw this as a sign and confirmation that God is aware of what is happening in all of our lives and “Acceptance is the Key to Life”:
“My plans I have for you are good and not for disaster, to give you future and hope.” (Jer. 29:11) “God will bless us with peace.” (PS 29:11)
