Accept the things you can not change
the freezing cold that cuts through me as I race from home to car and back again
that relationship that seems stuck
that vacuum cleaner that broke down after only one year
and on and on and on
yes, so many things that we cannot change
and change the things that you can
blow off the dust from that book manuscript and begin to work on it again
call that friend I haven’t heard from in so long
exercise regularly to improve health
get the oil changed in my car regularly
spend more time in His Word
talk with Him about everything
Wisely discern if something can be changed or not.
All too often
we find ourselves banging our heads against walls that will not change.
I’ve been there and so have you.
Somehow we hope that maybe something we do or say will change the situation
but we are wrong.
For whatever reason, the decision has been made.
In acceptance lieth peace.
Acceptance is not giving yourself permission to avoid your own responsibility.
No, acceptance, is the awareness that you’ve done everything possible on your side
and it is time to move forward.
Peace comes from knowing what category each situation falls into.
But always reckon on God.
Yes, He was, is and always will be the God of the Impossible.
and calls us to trust Him
even if we haven’t seen any indication of change in a long, long time.
Have faith in God when your pathway is lonely
He sees and knows all the way you have trod;
Never alone is the least of His children
Have faith in God,
Have faith in God.
Faith opens the door that seems shut
Faith softens the hardest of hearts
Faith heals the hearts that are broken
Faith can do what nothing else can.
Listen to His Whispers today and reach out in faith.
There is nothing along the pathway of life that He is unable to handle.
Never give up!
