change only what you can

You can change
Only what you can change;
I have understood
That in life,
There are things
You can change
And things
You cannot change.
Things man can change,
And things only God
Can change;
Change what
You can change,
And leave to God
What He alone can change;
Don’t try to force change
When you know it’s not possible.
But, how do you know the difference?
That is the question
I have been asking myself;
How do we know the difference?
We have to ask God, don’t we?
He alone has the answer;
He alone can tell us.
