Peace Treaty with Myself

Saturday, May 17, 2008

I can't attend every party. I can say thank you for the invitation;
I can't be everyone's best friend. I can love and be a great listener; I can't eat every dessert. I can make a decision to drink tea and engage in conversation;
I can't let the sun go down on my anger. I can turn it over to Jesus and take healthy steps towards resolution;
I can't have a spotless house at all times. I can creat shortcuts for myself;
I can't have unreal expectations for people. I can give my best to have the best relationship the both of us are willing to cultivate;
I can't expect the world to dictate when I am to rest. I can rest during the times I think I should; I can't know what's gonna happen in the future. I can laugh at it;
I can't have all the money in the world. I can manage my portion well;
I can't supply every need my family has. I can show them a God who can;
I can't have all the success in the world. I can have successful relationships;
I can't do everything in my own strength. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
