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;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
This is a very beautiful prayer that we should live by. We should strive to gain wisdom as wisdom would make our journey through life much more joyful. With wisdom, difficulties will be easier to overcome.
Let us allow God to direct our paths by accepting whatever comes our way, acting on it positively believing that it’s His gift for us, wrapped in disguise.
