Quick Post

A month back, after a deep talk with a friend, my friend suggested I look up this prayer.

It is called The Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr.
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.

Sometimes, I find it hard to adjust to the world. By that I mean, the shifting in the cultural values. What is now accepted as normal from the media is not always right, and that scares me, because some things are very subliminal that are hard to catch. To that I say;

Trust in the Lord.
