Mile Markers: Reflecting on the Journey - Practicing and Accepting [Ryan Ashley]
John 21:18-19, Matthew 6:25-34, Romans 8:38-39
Two Dimensions to our Apprenticeship to Jesus: Active and Passive
“Without him we can’t, without us he won’t.”
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;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
1. Make Space
2. Move Toward the Pain
3. Accept the Invitations of Jesus in Your Life Right Now
“We mature by meeting life, just as God designed it, and accepting there the invitations that beckon us ever deeper into the heart of life itself.”
Rolheiser – The Sacred Fire
