How do you know when something is worth fighting through? Is it within my control to change this? Should I leave it altogether, escape, remove myself from the situation? Can this be overcome? Will things get better or is this destined for failure? How do I navigate through the possibilities, the thicket, the sinking sand and make the right choice? I don’t know any better so I surrender.
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.
