God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the 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 this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
I have found myself saying this version of the Serenity Prayer over and over throuhout the last few months. I’m not going to dive into another self-induced “poor me” post so don’t worry. I just want to pass this along to any of you (the few of you) that keep up to date with my blog.
I try to remind myself that each of us individually are fighting our own internal battles and the more I remind myself of that, the more I have to recite this prayer. The obstacles that are constantly put in my way but must be happening for a reason are never going to stop and until I find that reason all I can really do I suppose is to…ohm.
1. The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
