Don't Let Circumstances Dictate Your Mood

“When we make this world about us, we begin to worry about our health, finances and other earthly possessions. Our focus becomes on our wants, needs and desires. Whether our life is going well or we are struggling with pain, we must ultimately remember who we are…a spirit born in the image of Christ…here to fulfill a purpose before we go back home.

Think about that…doesn’t it completely change how you feel and see life?”
Laura/gitznjo

My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit. Then you won’t feed the compulsions of selfishness. For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness. These two ways of life are antithetical, so that you cannot live at times one way and at times another way according to how you feel on any given day. Why don’t you choose to be led by the Spirit and so escape the erratic compulsions of a law-dominated existence?
Galatians 5:16MSG
