    First, I enjoyed being reminded of the full version of the Serenity Prayer. It is much more complete and far more than simple resignation or acceptance.

    I also find comfort in the depiction of bold surrender versus weak resignation. When we follow Jesus’s example of praying, “Father, glorify your name” in our times of impending darkness; we are not surrendering; we are not giving in or giving up; we are declaring victory! There is victory in Jesus not defeat or passive acceptance. Our faith is not timid, but bold, full of power, love and discipline (2 Timothy 1:7). I can face tomorrow because He lives!
