We all have them – Broken things in our lives that can't be fixed. Like most men, I immediately look for ways to fix all things broken. This doesn't help the person who's looking for a shoulder to cry on. A little wisdom goes a long way in situations like this. Check this out:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
I have a feeling this prayer will take a lifetime to master. It's worth the investment to nurture serenity, courage and wisdom. Apply this prayer to the broken things in your life that can't be fixed. Let me know if it helps. I will do my best to keep my mouth shut and listen.
