Serenity Now, A Duet

Standard

God grant me the serenity serenityprayer

There are moments in life that will often test your resolve

to accept the things I cannot change;

Coming out of thin air, anything can be placed at your feet

courage to change the things I can;

You have a choice, however,

and wisdom to know the difference.

To either step across it or try to maneuver around it

Living one day at a time;

Possibly stumbling or falling to your knees.

Enjoying one moment at a time;

If you manage to avoid the trying moment, consider yourself lucky

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

But if you’re like most of us and you find that you stumble or fall to your knees

Taking, as He did, this sinful world

While you’re there, remember who is in control

as it is, not as I would have it;

It is not you

Trusting that He will make all things right

It is not the situation

if I surrender to His Will;

It is our Father in Heaven

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

And He wants us to remember that…. always

and supremely happy with Him

It is in these moments, where weakness becomes our greatest attribute

Forever in the next.

Because we must learn to surrender to His will and not our own.

Amen.

Amen.

Please note the text in blue, “The Serenity Prayer” dates back to 1936 to a theologian named Reinhold Niebuhr.
