Finding our way through this life, we encounter many things, many people, and many adventures.

Some painful.
Some fun.
Some scary.
Some fulfilling.

Each molding us.
Changing us.
Transforming us into who we are, today.

Some of us embrace positives.
Some negatives.
Some don't embrace anything at all.

Some give us pleasure.
Some grieve us.

How can we use these things, good and bad?

Embracing who I am,

What a very timely word Andrea. Yes, I come in agreement with embracing who God has created me and only me to be. Blessings and hugs to you dear one.

I couldn't help but recall the Book of Ecclesiastes. Truly there is a time for everything!

From the vantage point of 63.2 years of age, I have concluded that everything does work together for my good; His glory. It's as if the good & noble conspire to claim the ignoble & harsh ... to make it all glorious in its time; His time.

Lovely thoughts,

All the things we go through, whether good or bad, make us into the person we are today. Bless you as you grow each day.


Andrea, we embrace, we endure, we encourage each other. We keep evolving until eternity becomes our home.

It's important we have the compassion to embrace ourselves, our full selves, everything we consist of, even the parts we'd never admit to ;) We are so apt to forgive others of their shortcomings or accept the ones we love unconditionally but then be critical on ourselves. I'm glad that you embrace yourself, may we all find the courage to do so :)

Trisha said...

Beautiful writing. So glad that God guides us through each of those things you have written about. Blessings.

It always causes me to pause when I see God at work in my life.
Yes, He moulds us to become what He wants us to be.
Blessings on you and yours.
