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. Amen
The Serenity Prayer has been an important part of me keeping me sober, serene, and sane. I spent a lot of years trying to change other people, and when I could not, I got really pissed off!
I can apply the prayer to everything and everybody in my life, including myself. I never lived up to others expectations of me, and they never lived up to my expectations of them.
Lately, I have really had to remind myself that I am powerless over people, places, and things. God does not want me to just sit back and do nothing. He wants for me to do the best that I can with what He has given me. If He did not want me to have the things that I have, He would not have given them to me.
America is under attack from “inside” and from “outside” evil forces. I get so discouraged because I am unemployed and broke as hell. I have always had a job. I was not too good to take less pay or part time work. I always had a job, even if it was as someone’s maid. I worked my ass off and graduated with a bachelor degree, so that I could get good employment to take care of me and my family. I was so full of hope in 2008 (before obama). I never asked to be rich, just to have enough to pay for housing, food–the necessities of life, but because of the socialists and communists sucking our resources dry and obama killing jobs–I pretty much have given up hope on finding employment now.
So, pretty much I live my life, “Day by Day”, and praying for God to help me afford to care for myself and my disabled husband (who by the way worked all his life and paid into our system). We have always worked for what we “needed”, and never expected others to support us. If not for family, we would be homeless and hungry!
It pissed the hell out of me that the communist/demon-rats are bringing in Illegals and Terrorists to intentionally overwhelm our system.
If they would stop funding the Terrorists and Illegals with our taxpayers money, then they could afford to take care of our Legal Americans who paid into the system all their life’s. Social Security is NOT an Entitlement, we paid for it!
I pray to God that America can survive the socialist,communist, islamic, illegal INVASION of our country!!! I know that I am doing everything in my power to help save her, and I will continue to. It all goes back to the serenity prayer.
