My Acceptance Letter (from a friend)

A Friend was one of the BEST modes of transportation used by God to reach out and help me. Friends don’t always do that. Look how Job’s Friends helped him, hurt him i should say…

Accepting that I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God’s world by mistake. ( a.a. big book pg.417) is so valuable to me right now.

No matter how much i pray in my heart or with my lips with tears coming down my face in sincerity,

“Lord grant me the serenity….”

i’m not going to get it UNTIL i do my part. The serenity from God comes when i bend my will to accept HIS will…that is when the supernatural things happen.

Think about it, i am asking God to grant me serenity to accept things i can not change. He is changing my heart because an all mighty powerful God allows us to have free will. He wants a “relationship” with us not a forced religious minion that just blindly follows a list of commands but allows Him to come into our heart, take over.

THEN we constantly, daily, moment by moment make a conscience effort to keep on asking Him and letting Him be our master. Renew our nature. That is what that whole born again thing is all about.

i know it is freaky to think about being possessed and perhaps we can identify with demon possession better than The Holy Spirit possessing someone but maybe only because we just haven’t see it or recognized HIM (Christ living in someone’s life)
or
we’ve seen Him in someone’s life, pretty sure we saw Him and His characteristics and then that same person fell out of love with Him and kicked Him out of their life by allowing sin, distractions, religion, other people and other things to take HIS place.

THIS post i just had to re-blog because it is a great mode of transportation and helps the baby Christian grow up and the mature christian (Christ-like person) continue to grow.

When expressing my concerns for situations i find myself in and general frustration a very dear friend told me he was going to send me something that helped him develop a more Christ like focus.

I expected a book in the mail that explained 21 steps that we can take to a better future. I expected 40 memory verses that you must know chapter and verse in order to have a better work environment. I expected a long document that i’d tried to wrap my head around to formulate a better living place for me in this big strange world. I thought for sure it was going to require me developing some new formula, plan, structure  i had never heard.

THIS IS WHAT HE SENT ME:

And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place…
