Want vs.need.

I'm learning how to fight correctly. I'm almost exhausted enough to seriously consider total surrender. I'm learning that I want Christ, as opposed to just needing Him. I will always need Him,but will I always want Him?  Being me means I will always fight my pride. This is something I will fight. Being me means I will encounter injustice.  It's a fact of life. One I can acknowledge.  It shouldn't be. Sometimes I must accept that I can't change people, and move forward with the calling Christ has set before me. Acceptance of others leads to acceptance of self. A friend once told me I would come to a point where I would finally reach my point of exhaustion. I would get so tired, I would stop fighting the monkey. I had doubts this day would come. I no longer doubt.

  2. I love the first words of the Serenity Prayer, probably familiar but always worth remembering: God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    It's a struggle. Don't fight. Just be. You'll find it.

  3. Dearest Regine,
    Yes, we all have fought many battles and had high hopes for changing things or others. NOPE!
    So indeed, for our own BEST it is good to let them be and turn them over to the Lord who in fact is ALL human's final judge. No one can escape that!
    This gives us peace of mind and we can focus on the little circle that we can influence.
    Sending you hugs,
    Mariette

  4. Live your beliefs and enjoy the comfort they bring to you. Those who wish to embrace them...will. The world is a melting pot of beliefs. Religion is not "one size fits all." It never can be. Relax and live your life and be happy. You are a kind person. Please do not let living your life beat you down. Be happy and enjoy each day 💕

  6. Sometimes I get exhausted with the people in my real life too, Regine. Let us try to accept them together. : )
