Can You Accept What Is?

Radio Spot as aired on KLBT 88.1

This message is to me. I need it as much as anyone. I know how I want things to go. I know how I like life to be. And yet. . . well, it doesn’t always go the way I’d like. What about you? Has your life progressed just according to your plans? As the years have gone (or flown) by I’ve learned a few lessons. The main one is I’m not the one in charge. It is only when I release that I am able to embrace life.

    This is so true, and this is what I’m having to deal with now. No family support, no husband, children estranged from me, not even a pet…..But yet it’s part of God’s plan. I’m not liking it but He keeps telling me the sunshine is on the way.
