“Your Choices Determine Your Destiny”.
A miserable individual once declared, "Don't expect anything good to happen, and then you won't be disappointed when it doesn't." Perhaps that describes you. You avoid hope to protect yourself against failure. You set up a negative lifestyle where everything seems to go wrong. If you create for yourself a positive lifestyle by making good choices you can endure the most difficult of circumstances. It isn't about bad luck or good fortune. Your situation is shaped by the choices you make and the work you do to have them become your reality. You have the mind of Christ, so begin to use it. If He wouldn't think it, you shouldn't either.
