We may not be comfortable with and or in our circumstances, but we have a choice to either be in tune with them or in tune with God’s word. I choose God's word, if I am honest it isn't always easy to choose because quite frankly giving in to "the flesh" and what I think is right and what I think I should do is easier.

[John 7:17; 15:15.]” Psalm 25:12-14 Amplified Bible
