Today was bad, I am having emotional breakdowns. I have been at home for the last three months due to my lupus. As, The world continued around me. I feel like I am standing still. Am I a victim of my circumstances? Quickly I would answer yes. If my job was not so demanding, if my husband would just listen to me, or if my children never misbehaved my life would be perfect.
Truthfully, our circumstances do not make us who we are. It just helps us reveal what we are. I am a tired, grumpy mother of two little boys that find a way to always fight with my husband and I. Oh, the differences we have with discipline. If you have children with disabilities life is never simple. Discipline is never the same. God has brought these circumstances into my life to change me and to show me what I am really like.
Satan tries to convince us the only way to change is to find a different circumstance. We feel we would be happier if our circumstances were different. Lie!
Truth is, if we are not happy in our current circumstances we won’t be happy in another place. By convincing use our circumstances are unnecessary satan can control our resentment and anger.
I need to be content in my life. Whether I have plenty or little. It seems so simple. But, it really is. We make life harder for ourselves. Believe God’s truth and show satan who controls your life.
