i accept the reality of what is, even when the moment is painful
Tears can come bearing important gifts. Often it is our saddest moments that lead to our greatest growth. One of the most powerful lines in the Bible is one of its simplest: "Jesus wept."
My task is not to avoid painful emotions, but rather to transform t at its roots. I cannot do this if I don't move through my emotions authentically, truly asking myself what lessons they hold for me. If I transcend my sadness, I must experience it first; I am ready to do both,
Today I allow myself permission to truly feel what is in my heart, both the happiness and the sadness there. I don't resist the emotional wave that rise up in me, but rather witness and accept them and surrender them to God. That way they are alchemized and turned into the bridge to my deliverance. Amen.
