Love this. So many people say "well I know God above all else wants me to be happy... Do what makes you happy" but the truth of the matter is LIFE IS TOO SHORT to do all the things that make you in the moment feel good. God is about holiness. Bringing things together for our good. Never says just so that we can feel good. Joy is a choice happiness... An emotion!
The trick is not to see yourself as one. It's never too late! I know I've felt like the victim in various situations in my life, but, it's never too late for me to realize that it's my responsibility to stand on victorious ground and know that whatever it is I'm experiencing or going through, those are just the clouds rolling by while I stand here on the top of this mountain! This mountain called Victory!
