Adjusting To The Unchangeable

One of the most famous prayers ever pinned is by Reinhold Niebuhr when he said, “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.”

Boy, it’s hard to find a prayer that utters more truth then those words.

Well it’s true because we do like to change things and often things we can’t change like each other in a marriage relationship.

Yeah and I’m amazed at how ineffective it is. I thought on the influece of my love that you would just be transformed. Any fault you had would just disappear.

Amazing how that hasn’t worked, isn’t it? Friend, think about that prayer in your own life this week and how you can adjust to things you can’t change.
