Everyone eventually faces something they want to change – but sometimes we simply can’t. It could be the loss of a loved one or a decision made by someone close to you. It might even be a serious injustice. We all should speak our mind with wisdom and conviction. Still, we cannot control the world.
What happens when you finally hit a brick wall? You either accept the situation or get devoured by negative emotions which can lead to terrible actions.
Instead, seek the presence of Christ and be free.
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

PRAYER TO ACCEPT WHAT I CAN’T CHANGE
Dear heavenly Lord,
Is this what you want? Is it right? Is it fair? How can this be? My flesh and my fears rage against reality.
Help me, oh Lord, to hear your voice. Help me understand. Show me that you are in control of all things no matter how confusing or painful they may be.
I don’t have to like it, but help me accept it.
Show me how to wait. Close the doors that lead to resentment and anger. Let me see the big picture of you working in my heart and in the world.
Show me, oh Lord, that true peace can only come from the wounds of Christ.
You are my rest. You are my home. When I accept you, I accept all that is your will.
Let your truth calm my heart and soothe my soul.
In Jesus name,
