The Application of Acceptance

Acceptance is receiving without criticism or judgment; to embrace the fullness of a situation or experience; an inner realization that all is well, regardless of the outward expression.

 

*   *   *

You do not have to like what is going on in your life, but you must accept that it, whatever it is, is going on.  As long as you do not accept reality, you are powerless to define the role you will play.

 

*   *   *

Acceptance is knowing that no matter what, everything is and will be just fine.

*   *   *

Acceptance is simply recognition.  When you recognize a thing you see it for what it is.  All of our experiences, no mater how awful they appear to be, are temporary.  Acceptance of an experience as a temporary situation can make it a lot easier to handle.  It does not mean you will not be temporarily angry, frightened or senseless.  It means you can usually handle something in a calmer manner when you know it is a temporary situation.

*   *   *

Accepting a thing does not mean you approve of what is going on.  Nor does it mean you are not being impacted by what is going on.  Acceptance means you are able to withdraw the emotional attachment just long enough to really see what is happening . . . it is only from the emotionally detached posture of acceptance that you can make a wise choice.

*   *   *

By accepting what is, you become keenly aware of what isn’t.  When you know what isn’t, you can begin to determine what you must do.

Compassion

Compassion relates to the ability to see yourself in the position of another, to feel what they feel and to offer tender support, empathy, and understanding for what the individual may be experiencing without seeing them as weak.

 Compassion does not strip a person of their dignity, nor does it deny them the dignity of their  process.  

Compassion allows you to stand with a person, holding the vision of their wholeness regardless of the situation or circum-stances they may face.  

Compassion is the pre- cursor to forgiveness.  

 Without compassion there will always be judgments, which obstruct mental and emotional energy and faculties.

Running away… focus…

Instead of running from what you “don’t want” walk with commitment toward what you desire. Focus on where you are going rather than being obsessed with where you have been. The difference between the two is energy. Iyanla Vanzant

I’ve been doing this for a while now, and yet I have my heart willing to walk with commitment toward what I really desire with so much passion.

I’ve been told this so many times.. focus on what you want , on what you dream of, and fight for it, go for it. Leave pas, leave history to where it belongs, baggage will become to heavy for you to carry along the road. You need strength to walk into the new happenings, into the new chapters of your life. Let past and all that is holding you back, there back in the past. Look with positivity to your future and walk with your head up. You were somewhere yesterday, but today is a new day… you will be going some else new…  Enjoy!

Facing Life’s Storms (Creflo Dollar)

Have you ever been so consumed with your problems and personal concerns that it seemed there was no immediate relief in sight?

For example, Sandra is a faithful member of her local church who has a loving relationship with her family and friends and is successful in almost everything she does. Recently, however, things have taken a negative turn financially, and because the pressures of the challenge seem so great, the usually positive and proactive Sandra is struggling with bouts of depression and stress. She has tried to involve friends to help her resolve her issues, only to find that few have the time or desire to listen to her problems.

While it may be hard to believe that a person can go from being a ‘got it all together Christian’ to feeling down in the dumps, it does happen. All of us have experienced this at some point in our walk with God; but instead of worrying or tracking down someone to join what could easily become a “pity party,” use the Source you know will never fail—God.

Everyone should understand the value of being prepared mentally and spiritually for attacks on our lives because they will come. In John 16:33, Jesus said, “…In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” God has equipped you to handle the storms of life by trusting in Jesus.
Similar to Job in the Bible, there are times when challenges hit us on all sides and we don’t always feel like responding with the Word of God; but rest assured that God’s Word is the solution to any problem. When you allow your responses and decisions to be founded on God’s Word, you open the door for God to come in and turn your situation around.

Job was a man who faced some terrible situations. His children were killed, his livestock were destroyed and he was struck with painful boils on his entire body. Job had lost everything and I’m sure he was tempted to completely give up and turn his back on God. Even his wife told him to just curse God and die because he was in such a pitiful state. But Job didn’t do that. While he did go through a time of complaining and questioning, he never gave up on God. As a result, God restored everything he lost.

When the storms of life hit you, what will you do? Will you become overwhelmed and lose heart in the midst of worrying, obsessing and attempting to fix every problem yourself? Or will you pass the trust test and employ His help by calling on Him first? There is no challenge too great for Him to handle. He can cause all things to work out for your good when you pray and seek Him. What you find difficult to do, God can perform sweatlessly.
In the midst of trusting God, know that He may not use your preferred method to solve your issues. God has numerous ways to get things done and He will change situations in order to fulfill His purposes and promises.

You must be willing to get out of God’s way in order for Him to work. That means refraining from worrying, complaining and trying to fix things in your own natural ability. When you worry, you hinder God’s promises from being able to work in your life. Instead, meditate on the Scriptures, seek understanding and believe in what the Word will do for you. Everything you need to survive the storms of life is in your Bible; so put it to use during the times you need it most.

Don’t forget that God is a prayer away. No, there is no quick fix for every obstacle you will face in life, but if you are a Believer, you have the very thing that will bring peace in times of trouble (John 14:27). Pray to God and He will answer. He promised to never leave or abandon you.

Develop a closer relationship with God by finding out more about Him and His promises.

Marianne Williamson – A Return to Love

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson – A Return to Love

Quoted-ellipsis

Sunday Words – (quotes by Mel Wright)

It’s not hard to find someone who will tell you they love you, but it is hard to find someone who means it.

It’s scares me how easily everyone can move on so fast, how what once meant so much can be forgotten like it meant nothing.

You will never become who you want to be if you keep blaming everyone else for who you are.

It makes no sense to be second in someone’s life, when you know you’re good enough to be first in someone’s else’s.. Know your worth.

Imagination + Inspiration + Perspiration = Destination.

Occasionally you may fail with a positive, inspired attitude but, with negativity, failure is guaranteed.

Finding Love is like finding shoes. People go after the good looking ones, but they end up choosing the one they feel comfortable with.

Nobody can take away your pain, so dont let anyone take away your happiness.

The company that we keep is so important to how high we rise or how low we fall.

Don’t worry. You may think you’ll “never” get over it. But, you also thought it’d last “forever”.

Thanking always to you

Mel Wright
