Transformation Life Resource: Acceptance

Posted on December 19, 2023 by Elizabeth Welte in Victory Call

FYI… If you are not aware, Keswick has numerous resource brochures on topics ranging from Abuse to Worry. They are available for download on our website or you can contact America’s Keswick to order them. Today I want to focus on the one entitled Acceptance. I have to say that it’s not normally the one on the literature rack that empties out the most. This is one of the reasons I’m choosing it.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not always as accepting as the Lord would like me to be. I’m not talking about acceptance of just any old thing that comes your way. But there are things that the Lord is doing in my life and in yours that, like it or not, He is doing them. HE IS. Should we not accept all that comes from and though His nail-scarred, loving hands? Job’s wife didn’t think so, but Job did.

Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!” But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all of this Job did not sin with his lips. Job 2:9-10 (NKJV)

This is a small excerpt from the resource Acceptance written by Diane Hunt:
“Discontentment, anger, frustration, distraction, worry, strife, depression, etc., can all be indicative of a person who has failed to accept God, his circumstances, or other people…

It highlights areas such as:
Accepting Our Circumstances,
Accepting Others and Five Hindrances to Accepting Others: Pride, Self-righteousness, Anger, Unforgiveness, and Disobedience

Take heart…it also covers:

How to Change: Repent, Pray, Check your second thought, Be thankful.
And it closes with a challenge:

“Change is possible. Not until the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of changing will we ever change. Start today.”

I hope you’ll consider looking into this further and all the other resources we have available.
