Thanks so much for posting this, Brown-eyed Girl. I've always loved the first part of the Serenity Prayer, especially:

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 applicable to so many different situations in our lives!

Thanks, Brown-eyed Girl!
Just the other day I was thinking about this prayer, and how appropriate it is to the challenges of CFS/ME - when there is so much that we can't control... or that feels way out of control.

Thanks danib, glenp, rebecca1995, and dancer,

Thanks for the affirmation that, yes, this little prayer when used, esp. over and over, packs a lot of power.

Thanks for posting that Brown Eyes, its always been one of my favorite prayers too.

This is another Bible verse that I have come to meditate on when feeling low.




The picture says it all for me, I can't physically run and my energy is depleted, but there is nothing to stop me soaring above it all, and sometimes I get a glimpse of heaven.

When that happens I come back down just that little bit stronger.

Maybe I should wait upon the Lord more often.:Retro smile:

Liverock,
I also love that verse. It's been a "theme song" for me in the recent years of having ME/CFS.

I also love
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day."
2 Cor. 4:16
Blessings!
