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.— Reinhold Niebuhr

Most of us are reflecting life and not affecting it.

Never pray to God to change your life, and to give you something better. This is wrong prayer. If you have to pray to God, pray to God to give you the strength and the wisdom and the courage that you need to be able to handle the situation that you're in. This is correct prayer.
We think of the Christian life as a ‘changed life’ but it is not that.
What God offers us is an ‘exchanged life,’ a ‘substituted life,’ and Christ is our Substitute within.
The Christian life is not about pleasing God the finger-shaker and judge.
It is not about believing now or being good now for the sake of heaven later. It is about entering a relationship in the present that begins to change everything now. Spirituality is about this process: the opening of the heart to the God who is already here.
