Misery is an option

Philippians 4:13 (AMP)13 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who [a]infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. 

You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!  When we renew our mind we can save ourselves from a lot of misery.  Misery is an option.  God has a good plan for our lives and as long as we know that we can go through whatever we need to go through with positive thoughts. 

We have to set our mind for success and refuse to give up no matter what.  We need to set our mind to not dread anything we need to do for the day, the week, or in life.  We have a right as a child of God to enjoy life and it is up to us to exercise that right.  Exercise takes effort – it is doing the same thing over and over until we see results.  It might take time to get our thinking straightened out but the more we exercise doing the right thing with our thoughts the more we will see results.  Eventually, thinking positive thoughts will go from purposeful exercise to habit. 

Once a positive outlook has become a habit for you, your life will change drastically.  Your situations may not change much, but you will be able to go through your situation with joy and peace and a positive mind.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
