All things Right

“. . .trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His will.”  The key to this line in the prayer is understanding the Kingdom of God.  It is one of the most popular topics of Jesus yet the least understood by his followers.  The kingdom takes time but also comes in a moment.  The Kingdom is like the wheat and the weeds that aren’t made right until the last day.  Yet the Kingdom is  like a man who sees the meaning of life and surrenders all of his plans and dreams to receive this great treasure.

As Jesus Did

“Taking, as Jesus did, 
this sinful world as it is,
 not as I would have it.”  This world is a messed up, broken, sinful place and a key part of receiving Serenity is to learn to follow Jesus in accepting life on life’s terms and quitting attempts to control things that are out of our control.  The good news is that Jesus made it through the struggle and suffering to offer redemption and relief in the midst of our sin.

Accepting Hardship as a Pathway to Peace

God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness, gold and silver are refined by fire, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.  The story of Joseph in Genesis 37-41 tells how he grew up believing that ease and comfort was the pathway to peace yet how his life of privilege led to slavery and prison.  It was only through accepting hardship that Joseph found the pathway to peace. . . and so can you.
