October 11th: Surrender

When a situation seems unbearable or unchangeable I find that it is best to practice acceptance.

During my divorce, there came a time when I realized that it was inevitable that there would no longer be a chance of reconciliation with my husband.

I knew then… that I had given my all, fought hard to save my marriage, but now was the time to accept and surrender.

My surrender did not imply failure.

My surrender was just that: accepting what I could not change and embracing the outcome that my Higher Power had chosen for me.

I could no longer protest it.

I could no longer fix it.

I could no longer fight it.

I needed to submit to it.

I knew that I would find peace, strength, and serenity once I stopped resisting and accepted my Higher Power’s spiritual path for me.

“Dear God, help me to see that nothing in your world is a mistake. That you have chosen my path and I have chosen to walk it.”

  1. Wow – I can’t imagine a more clear, concise way to say that one can find the way, and the strength, to move on. I’m finally coming to this state of mind, although there are days (or maybe hours in a day) when I fall back. Thank you
