Serenity Prayer – Full Length

Many people have heard of the serenity prayer:

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

But did you know that is only part of it? The full version is:

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships 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;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.

Amen.

The reality is that life is not about us and our circumstances.  It is all about Jesus; who he is and what he did!  The world is not what we want it to be because of our sinful nature.  We have to accept that nothing will change the heart other than Jesus.
