Moment of Serenity

I'm grateful for the many moments in my life that my Heavenly Father takes away my grief, fear, and sorrow. When I humbly surrender myself to Him, He fills me with peace and blesses me beyond measure.

I think that this Serenity Prayer is simply beautiful.

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
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 hardship 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.
