Do you ever notice that what God sometimes asks of his people seems illogical and/or impossible? The scriptures are full of examples - my own life seems full of examples. Mary, the mother of Jesus, gives us some of the best advice ever given. Take a listen to this 5ish minute audio for encouragement on your faithwalk with God this week.
P.S. - near the end, if you hear a little whining in the background - that's just Rocco. Apparently he was gently agreeing with me in prayer :)
Here is the serenity prayer often used to both open and close 12-step meetings. It really is one of the best prayers to help you learn how to live into "whatever."
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
