John 16:33 NIV
Good morning, sweet soul,
Life is precious. Each day is a gift. Scripture teaches us to number our days. Why? I believe God wants us to understand that our time on earth shouldn’t be wasted in futile wishes. I wish I had a better car. I wish my son would behave. I wish I . . .
Yesterday I met with a recently bereaved widow. She said she would like the Serenity Prayer included in her husband’s funeral service. She cannot change the fact that her husband of 49 years is deceased. Only acceptance will bring her peace.
Friends, you and I suffer when we want things to be different from what they are. Sometimes, we need to pray for courage to continue on a difficult path we did not choose. Wishing things were different only causes us pain. If your tribulation is within your power to change, by all means, take the first step and the next till you resolve your difficulty. On your journey, I wish you the peace of Christ.
