If God’s people project the mercy and acceptance they have received other people will be more likely to identify with them. Anonymous

Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” 1 Peter 2:10

Acceptance of one’s life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustice        Paul Tournier
 ...for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.  Phillipians 4:11
