“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
An older friend shared the Serenity Prayer with me when I was in my mid-20s. She shared it at a time in my life when experiences became more complex and unfamiliar. Reading and meditating on the prayer calmed me with a sense of assurance.
Life is full of change and few things remain consistent. The staple I can depend on is the presence of God moving in every circumstance. I have to consciously tap into a space where I stop giving life into the complex and/or unfamiliar challenges and speak the promise.
2 Corinthians 1:20, clearly states, “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the Glory of God by us.” There is no duplicity in God- His promises will be fulfilled.
Opposition positions us for increase, new beginnings, restoration, and expectation. My spiritual leader, Dr. C.L. Spells Sr., once said “God will allow you to walk in what others drown in.”
Take a moment and simply reflect on the faithfulness of God. Trust in His plans for your life.
Until we meet again, remember the possibilities are endless.
