"Don't you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey?" - Romans 6:16a
You don't have to let your situation choose how you feel about life. People have suffered through countless problems and remained unshaken. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, torture survivor of the Holocaust, wrote, "the life of faith is nothing if not an unending stuggle of the spirit." It's true. life is a struggle, but we get to choose how to respond to life.
