I was listening to a speaker the other night as I drifted off to sleep. However, before I went wherever it is I go when I sleep the speaker stated something that I awoke with the next morning: Embrace where you are now! Embrace what ever it is that you are being challenged with. Embrace it. Let it come into your soul and your heart and truly embrace it. What does that mean I asked myself?
What it means to me is "embrace this time in my life as it is. Not as I dream it to be." Right now. I mean right now. We all know that nothing remains the same and each and every day offers a new opportunity for something. However, the task is to embrace it and not allow it to overwhelm you. Take a realistic look and embrace the place where you are right now.
I know it can be challenging because we desire that it be different. It's not different and for this time it may not change for a moment, however, embrace it. Think about embracing your situation as it is. Just embrace it. And you know what..you will immediately feel different. I guarantee it. YOU WILL FEEL DIFFERENT. Something will occur to you on how to change the situation that is upon you. You will feel differently and quite possibly see and feel a new hope, a new joy and less burden. EMBRACE YOUR SPACE!! That is your task. Embrace!
Until the next time,
