Embrace the Moments


I’m joining the Five Minute Friday community with Kate Motaung…5 minutes, no rewriting, and a one word prompt…
Embrace

Life doesn’t always go the way we would like it to. There are unexpected twists and turns that move us in a different direction than we had planned.

That’s where we have a choice—to get stuck in the way we wish things were or embrace where God has us and what He’s blessed us with.

Maybe you don’t see your current circumstances as a blessing. I get that. Sometimes I don’t either.

But even in the midst of difficult situations, we can still experience joy, love, and happiness. And most especially, a close relationship with God.

If we focus on what we don’t have, we will miss these moments.

But, when we accept where we are, then we are able to watch for the moments that matter. {Tweet this} When we watch for them, we will experience them. And embrace them as memories.

In Christ,
Laura

  3. Lovely essay, Laura. The graces are there, flowers growing though the pavement, if we will just look at them.
