Acceptance to Grace
There are times in my life when circumstances arise that I want to be different, that I feel are unfair, that test my will and patience. What I am learning and living is that God's grace is always there if I ask for it. When I try to control my emotions, when I try to control circumstances, when I try to change others I make my self sick with worry and lose my connection to all that is good.
As I walk through this journey I am learning the peace that comes with acceptance, the comfort that comes from welcoming God and the knowing that something good can always arise. I am learning to let go and allow the flow of life to direct the right actions I should take.
So at this moment I know I am powerless by myself and know my power comes when I connect and align with God's grace. As I offer this prayer this morning may the highest good unfold for each of us.
In your infinite grace and love I welcome you into my heart.
Although there is much I do not understand and want to be different I know though art with me.
Thank you for the grace you bring to me.
Thank you for showing me in every moment that your hand and love is enfolding me.
Thank you for showing me how to move through each moment with ease and grace.
Thank you that your favor is upon my family and I.
Thank you for showing me how to effectively and lovingly parent with ease.
Thank you for the well being that you bring when I connect to your love.
Thank you for my emotions for they help to cleanse my soul.
Thank you for helping me let go with love to make room for you to bring the highest good.
Thank you that you walk beside me at every moment and our family is covered in your grace.
I feel your love so deeply, I allow your goodness to direct every thought, deed, action and word that the highest good will come to me and through me.
Thank you for the serenity to accept what I cannot change, change what I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
Thank you that the growth we are all experiencing is for good.
I love you and know your grace is ever present.
