How many times has this happened to you? You just start thinking about all the things wrong and how many things need to get done…so on and so forth. It’s amazing how busy our minds can get while lying in bed…so much so that we can not rest our body. Then we get hit with the realization “Dude, you’re lying in bed about to go to sleep, what in the world are you going to do about it right now? Are you going to jump out of bed and get back to work on everyday issues that can wait until tomorrow?” Although i have never been an alcoholic I like the AA’s Serenity Prayer:
God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time,
accepting hardship as the
pathway to Peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things
right if I surrender to His will;
That I may be reasonably happy
in this life, and supremely happy
with Him in the next.
