I was talking with a co-worker about my impending tax doom and she was bringing me news I didn’t want to hear but deep down I knew that it was not going to be good. I recall that yesterday I was sitting in the Easter service and we were celebrating the ascension of Christ from the tomb, I felt good about yesterday, a new beginning was in the air and I felt a bit of relief come from my shoulders as I felt the Spirit of God move through my blood. I dislike very much ( a kinder version of hate) bad news, I despise its outcome, I am tired of learning from mistakes that I seem to make daily. How can I get out of this rut?,how can I make the change I need to turn this page corner and not have it tear? It is beyond me how God has come to my benefit for so many years, I am blessed that he has shown favor upon my family. I know that the prayer I say today and everyday from now on has helped so many people, I pray it helps me this year.
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.
