Your will is more powerful than your feelings. You have to say to discouragement, “I will rejoice; I will be glad today.” Say to sadness, to the blahs, to no passion, “You’re not going to control my life. I may feel you, but you’re not telling me the truth. You don’t dictate my future. I will live this day in faith. I will rejoice. I will be glad in it.” When we’re controlled by how we feel, we let traffic, people, circumstances determine our mood. That’s a very surface way to live. You have to go deeper than that. You can’t stop negative feelings from coming, but you don’t have to get on board with them.
Claim your blessings, they are yours!
