"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."- Reinhold Niebuhr
I've always loved the simplicity of the serenity prayer. I've struggled with accepting the things I cannot change. I've struggled with not being in control. I've struggled with my will versus God's will. Sometimes, what I've wanted has superseded what I needed and resulted in very difficult lessons. My prayer is that I accept that which I cannot control and that which I cannot change. I trust God. My peace comes from God. It is the peace of God that allows me to accept and rest in his promises. It is the peace of God that allows me to accept.
