Inspiration for the Day
We know that we have grown through our sufferings. We know that we can understand and forgive other people because we have been there, too. We know that we are patient and considerate because of our sufferings. All this stops us from playing God, which is wonderful, joyous, loving, and impactful, but it also hurts. When we used to hide our sufferings and pretend they were not there, the result was loneliness and hypocrisy.
Meditation for the Day
God, refresh my spirit, help me let go of longing to become something I am not, and show me how to be the best of who I am.
