God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
This prayer fills my mind and heart as I sit here this morning.
I feel like some things are right, though know that there has been a lingering "there's something wrong" for quite some time ... there has been uncertainty and hurt ... there has been understanding and joy. On another note, I always strive for change for the better / improvement, but maybe too much? It is extremely difficult to have that serenity when it feels like something is not right ... that it may not be God's will, but you do not know for sure. I am praying for wisdom because I do trust that God will make all right. I hope that will be "it" when that time comes. If you are reading this, please keep me in your prayers.
Add your prayer requests and / or comments, too!
In Motherly Love,
