I asked that question last week in one of my classes. It seems we can get bogged down with all the things we can’t change, that we forget to address the things we can change. We get acceptance and passivity all mixed up.
Then today as I was reflecting on what things I can control, I was reminded that we have Your Spirit inside of us Father. Seriously, can this get any better?
Colossians 3 1-2 So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective. (MSG)
