Day 14: It Is What It Is


You have said it.

You have heard others say it.

"IT IS WHAT IT IS"

meaning

"An expression used to characterize a frustrating or challenging situation that a person believes cannot be changed and must just be accepted"(dictionary.com).

You have said it.

You have heard others say it.

THE SERENITY PRAYER~

"GOD, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the 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 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" (Reinhold Niebuh)

And then you start to say it

because that is what HE said to say

when

"IT IS WHAT IT IS"

&

SERENITY is what you crave~

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GOD..."

And then serenity because reality~
