English: Peace & serenity on the Llangollen Canal

Pastor Sheldon referenced the Serenity Prayer today in his message. If you’ve been having difficulty forgiving or loving someone, particularly in your family, let these words wash over you today. Ask God to work this into your heart today.

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.

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;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

-Reinhold Niebuhr
