I read my Life Application Bible every day. As I read it that day I found this scripture two times, I saw in the verse notes something I had always found hard to practice. “Paul’s attitude teaches us an important lesson: our inner attitudes do not have to reflect our outward circumstances. Paul was full of joy because he knew no matter what happened to him: Jesus Christ was with him.”
When we face unimaginable issues in life, it is difficult to keep a positive attitude. We have to rely upon the Lord Jesus to guide us through. He calms our hearts, shows us ways to handle certain aspects of the situation, and speaks gentle reminders as we proceed to the solution.
