I have chanced upon Idz' facebook status this morning:
"there's no sense in getting upset on what we can't control, let's leave everything to God & patiently on His perfect time.. :')"

These were my exact thoughts six years ago when i found about the illegal settlers in my system. Admittedly, initially there was an outburst of anger, an outcry of pain, and an ocean of of tears. The why-me, how-do-i-go with-it, what-will-happen-to-me-tomorrow and legions of questions only God could answer.

Years of battle and i still do not know when this would end. I know i couldn't change the course of my life, but at least i have managed to look at my own life in a different perspective.

The Serenity Prayer

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.
