I love watching Joyce Meyer videos on YouTube. She has such great sermons on how to change your perspective to change your moods and how everything begins in your mind. Learning to be content despite your circumstance is the theme.

Does your circumstance steal your joy or your attitude toward your circumstance that steals your joy?

Our joy cannot be based on our circumstances. If you feel unhappy, ask yourself what have you been thinking about lately? One thing that doesn’t change are the gifts and callings God places on our lives. Ask yourself what you like and what you’re good at to determine your calling. I’ve found that sometimes our passions aren’t our job, but our purposes outside of work.

We have a God shaped hole in all of us that only God can fill.
