Embrace the Life You Have

Occasionally weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God. And embrace the life you have. – John Piper

Is there anyone living who cannot understand this quote? If you have seen the movie “La La Land”, I think the last 10 minutes of that show could be summed up in Piper’s statement. (La La Land is a good movie.) I like the hope at the end of the quote, because you don’t embrace something that you do not want or is not worth having. But the life we have is the live we have been given. And if you trust God, it is worth more than just living. It is worth an embrace!
