From Surviving to Thriving: The Joy of Radical Acceptance (Psalm 139: 19-21)

“O that you would kill the wicked, O God,
and that the bloodthirsty would depart from me —
those who speak of you maliciously,
and lift themselves up against you for evil!
Psalm 139:19-21

Practice radical acceptance this week with a meditation prayer. 

While sitting with your palms facing upwards, breathe in slowly and then exhale completely.  As you breathe in, imagine breathing in God’s love and acceptance for you.  You are God’s beautiful creation. As you exhale imagine sending out that love and acceptance into the world.  Breathe in, breathe out. 

We hope this brings you some comfort and joy! You can spread the joy by liking, commenting and sharing this post with others. Be sure to subscribe and never miss a post.


Some Comfort and Joy was developed as a devotional resource that follows the rhythms and seasons of the liturgical year from an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective.

Stay-at-home-Jill-of-all-trades I am hoping to create connections with people and the world around me, while being creatively engaged in what is happening right in front of my nose!
