Scripture Memory

For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.

And He watches all his paths.

Proverbs 5.21

Reflection

Millions of people pray the Serenity Prayer, which is based on the Lord’s Prayer, but most have never read the last eight lines to the prayer: “Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that You will make all things right if I surrender to Your will; so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.” That’s where the power is! Power comes when you surrender to God anything you’ve been trying to control. And that will lead you to living a life of serenity.
