OPENING TO ABUNDANCE
Beloved God, Creator of the Universe, Divine Indwelling Spirit,
I open my heart and my mind this day to remember that I am a living breathing expression of all that You are.
I open my heart and my mind this day to connect to this truth and to allow all to be expressed through me.
Creator God, I allow the abundance of this vast universe to come easily and effortlessly to me.
I open myself to be the vessel through which all blessings flow. I remember that abundance is the energy that flows through every aspect of my life.
Blessed Mother, Father God I know it is your pleasure for me to have abundant life.
God, my only source, I am so grateful for all that is in my life and for all that I know is yet to come.
Thank You for the reminder that I am worthy of all that I truly desire.
Thank you for allowing me to be the vessel of your abundance.
I AM YOUR LORD! Seek Me as Friend and Lover of your soul, but remember that I am also King of kings–sovereign over all. You can make some plans as you gaze into the day that stretches out before you. But you need to hold those plans tentatively, anticipating that I may have other ideas. The most important thing to determine is what to do right now. Instead of scanning the horizon of your life, looking for things that need to be done, concentrate on the task before you and the One who never leaves your side. Let everything else fade into the background. This will unclutter your mind, allowing Me to occupy more and more of your consciousness.
Trust Me to show you what to do when you have finished what you are doing now. I will guide you step by step, as you bend your will to Mine. Thus you stay close to Me on the path of Peace.
Proverbs 19:21 Many plans are in a man’s heart,
But the counsel of the Lord will stand.
Luke 1:79 To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.”
The Application Of Acceptance
Acceptance is receiving without criticism or judgment; to embrace the fullness of a situation or experience; an inner realization that all is well, regardless of the outward expression.

You do not have to like what is going on in your life, but you must accept that it, whatever it is, is going on. As long as you do not accept reality, you are powerless to define the role you will play.

Acceptance is knowing that no matter what, everything is and will be just fine.

Acceptance is simply recognition. When you recognize a thing you see it for what it is. All of our experiences, no mater how awful they appear to be, are temporary. Acceptance of an experience as a temporary situation can make it a lot easier to handle. It does not mean you will not be temporarily angry, frightened or senseless. It means you can usually handle something in a calmer manner when you know it is a temporary situation.

Accepting a thing does not mean you approve of what is going on. Nor does it mean you are not being impacted by what is going on. Acceptance means you are able to withdraw the emotional attachment just long enough to really see what is happening . . . it is only from the emotionally detached posture of acceptance that you can make a wise choice.

By accepting what is, you become keenly aware of what isn’t. When you know what isn’t, you can begin to determine what you must do.
