Psalm 36:7 [ESV] How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36:7 [Message] How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings,
Psalm 36:7 [NLT] How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.
God’s love doesn’t keep us from storms, it keeps us safe in them.
Lots of people are familiar with the “Serenity Prayer” – but their familiarity is with the short version. I choose to pray and live the long version.
God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship 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.
