“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want”.

Philippians 4:12

We all have things in our lives that we can't change. They run a broad spectrum between minor annoyances, like a family member's persistent, annoying behavior, and real tragedies, like the loss of someone close to us.

But even in situations that are beyond our control, we can choose how we respond. The wisdom of St. Francis's "Serenity Prayer" reminds us that we can't change some situations and we can't change other people, but we can change ourselves.

We can modify our own response to that annoying family member. We can adopt a positive attitude in sticky circumstances. In other words, we can choose joy.

And even during those moments when we can't change our emotions, when grief overwhelms us, we can still choose God. When we do, we are accepting His promise to bring joy into our lives.

Final Thought

There may be situations in our lives we cannot change; however we need to

Seek courage to truly believe God can do All things!

Prayer

Father, I want to choose joy today. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and give me wisdom to respond rightly to everything in my life. In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen.
