From The Heart of Abba Today:
Beloved, laugh, cry, rejoice.
Embrace the moments,
Whatever they bring.
Don’t simply endure,
There is a vast difference in enduring and embracing.
When you embrace a moment, whatever it holds,
You are being fully alive,
You are being who I crafted and designed you to be.
Embracing the moments, the ability and desire to live fully alive,
Begins with embracing the truth that I AM is with you,
Caring for you, carrying, and sustaining you,
During all the moments of your life.
Verses to Ponder:
1 Thess. 5:16-18
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Isaiah 46:4 NLT I will be your God throughout your lifetime–until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.
