Dear Lord...

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.

Forgive me for picking back up what I’ve already laid down at Your feet.

If all of these trials bring me closer to You, then I will go through the fire if You want me to.

Anonymous asked: What will you do if god doesn't even exist?

peterdwebb:

That’s the cool part. If God doesn’t exist, then nothing happens. If He does, you definitely want to have believed in Him. Without faith it’s impossible to please God, and He’s the one that deals out judgement after death. 

He totally does though. There’s a humongous difference between the kingdom of this world and the kingdom of God. Worry, hatred, disease, bondage and guilt versus peace, love, healing, freedom and forgiveness? To have a God that is a shield and a support? Always present at a moment’s need?

Hands down I’ll take this God every time. I’ve experienced Him. I’ve seen Him at work. It’s totally worth it. 

I want God, in my weakness, in my pain, in my joy, in my strength, in my apathy, in my love, and in my life. I want God so completely; that every thing that I do is covered in His Spirit.

May I be ever curious, open, willing to ask and to learn. May I remember where to go with my questions and rest in God’s presence even when I don’t understand the answers.
