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].
We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. We are ready for anything that comes our way. Misery is an option. We don’t have to miserable in the middle of our negative circumstances. We have to be willing to let God to renew our mind in order for our mind to be renewed. We have to learn to think right on purpose – it is not going to just happen.
We can set ourselves up for bad behavior by rolling negative thoughts through our head. We can think about bad things long enough that it turns into dreading what we have to face in life. We can overcome that dread, but first we have to change the thought of dread that falls into our mind. Dreading your circumstances will not change them. Set your mind to enjoy your life regardless of your circumstances. We have a choice to think positive or negative. Why should we choose negative if we know it will make us unhappy and miserable?
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
