Three Resourceful Questions






“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt

Three Resourceful Questions

The spirit of the serenity prayer is beautiful, simple and powerful.  But sometimes it is enormously difficult to apply it in our day-to-day struggles.

Here are three resourceful questions that may be helpful in sorting how best to add serenity to the challenges you face as you apply your Christopher Courage:

n  What CAN I control?  In other words, am I doing all I can?  If not, what else can I do?

n  What CAN I influence?  If I can’t do it alone, whom else do I know? Am I willing to ask others? (Leadership)

n  What must we accept? If you are really, totally satisfied with the answer to questions one and two…peace…serenity…acceptance, its in God’s hands.


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.

 Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardships 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

Forever in the next.
