Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. ~Psalm 62:5
There is a deep inner peace that comes with learning to accept things as they are today. Yes I have hopes and dreams and desires to fulfill but today I am learning to accept where I am.
There is no sense in fighting it. Worrying about tomorrow won't change it.
Today I am healing. I am not lost to the One Who Heals. I am resting in the palm of His hand.
Acceptance has not come instantly. There are feelings that are valid and real and necessary to work through and acknowledge. Grief. Anger. Frustration. Tears were cleansing. But the stage of acceptance is necessary for change to occur.
I not only accept myself and my circumstances, but I see that I am accepted. Cared for. Loved.
And I am grateful.
