All too often I find this word to be avoided, to be considered negative, to be considered “here comes trouble!” My response to this truth was “here comes another positive word gone NEGATIVE, what a pity!”
I looked acceptance up in the dictionary and found that a primary defining word was “favor.” WOW!
The following blessing has been bestowed upon me many times, and I quote it from the BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER:
“The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord’s face shine on you with grace and mercy.
The Lord look upon you with favor
and give you peace. AMEN“
My friends, acceptance is a REALLY BIG DEAL and I am sorry to say we as a culture are not very good at it. We need to do better!

“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why… I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?” – Robert Kennedy
There have been so many times life has brought me “why” situations and admittedly they are often expressed in the tone of a whine. Sometimes, though, the Lord has led me in directions where I have felt surprised and unable and thought “but why?” in a fearful yet “could it really be?” sort of way. When I have moved ahead in faith, I have been enabled and blessed.
Of late there have been a lot of both going on. The former and the latter have both grown MUCH LARGER. Am I being tested in a new season? Am I being blessed in a wonderful way? The impossible challenges sure can be a “never were” and the fear can be staggering, but with faith and trust in Him, no matter how many tell me “you’re crazy!” I don’t have to listen. I can say “and why not?” knowing He’ll be there EVERY TIME.
