Accept the Things I Cannot Change

Today, I was reminded of the verse that theologian Reinhold Niebuhr composed:

"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."

These words are easier to recite than they are to live by.  But the more that we recite this verse, the more we will begin to understand that we can be comforted by our great Creator and that He understands His plans perfectly, even when we don't.
