To fully and enthusiastically accept.
All that this year has to offer, all that God has to offer, and MORE.
Embracing calling, identity, challenges, celebrations, and the small moments.
Embracing love, joy, and peace in ALL things.
Embracing courage, fearlessness, and boldness.
Embracing who I am, imperfections and all,
BUT Not letting who I am go unchanged, instead embracing growth!
I choose to welcome others with open arms,
Grace, and a smile on my face.
A warm embrace.
Mark 11:23-25 The Message (MSG)
22-25 Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”
