It’s more of a reminder to myself, but if it’s helpful to you, then that’ll work.
I remember someone saying once that no one can make you feel anything. Ultimately, they can’t make you happy or sad or angry or anything.
They can say hurtful things, but you still have a choice as to how you will respond. Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket (as I heard someone else say once). Let your joy come primarily through God and let others be conduits of that joy.
No matter what, you can choose gratitude and joy and thanksgiving because you know that God is still a promise keeper, no matter what the weather or the day.
