Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 21’s Topic: Hope.
I don’t necessarily count myself as a Christian per se, but accepting God into my life about a year ago really meant a big deal to me.
Like, I was a lost soul. By the definition.
I didn’t know where my life was heading. Things felt grim. I thought I was going to end up somewhere completely awful at my rate.
A seemingly endless, ongoing series of self-inflicted bouts with doubt and a huge lack of confidence to make sense of it all … Well, it all hurt. Real bad.
But I got through it when I understood, finally, why it’s important to believe in God. This isn’t about whose religion is right or wrong. This isn’t about trying to shove religion down someone’s throat against their will.
It’s life. God’s greatest gift to you is life itself. It is your duty to find purpose with your existence and to live your life to the fullest as possible.
It’s not always easy. Heck, it’s not always pleasant.
But despite all the bad, I have managed to find some good around some corners on this complicated, and often confusing, personal journey I have been on for years now.
This is why I believe wholeheartedly in 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.
