“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
It is easy to say… “I’m not going to let anyone or anything take my serenity away today” but the reality is… without daily spiritual connection… serenity becomes easy to lose.
Without quiet moments each day where I make the time to reflect on what I am grateful for, pray to my Higher Power for guidance, or calm my mind before reacting, I can find myself straying away from my spiritual path, and inviting chaos to take hold of my life.
Whatever spiritual routine I choose to follow, I must practice it each day.
In this way, I will learn not to allow serenity to be stolen from me by letting my mind become overwhelmed with life’s daily highs and lows.
“Dear God, help me to stay in gratitude, walk in faith, and trust your path for me.”
