Somehow I always end up in this same place. Like the Israelites I tend to be on the play then repeat stage. AND just like them I wonder when will I learn to just let it go. Boy am I stubborn! Like. 3 year old who thinks that if I whine loud and long enough I will get what I want. This week I was confronted with the serenity prayer.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
I will surrender once more to the God who knows me more deeply than I can understand.
