How do we trust God when we don’t know how or where to begin? We need to change our minds to how He thinks and what He wants for us. Setting our priorities is something else God will show us how to do.

Learning to say “No” to ourselves is something that we all strive to do all the time. Our spirit and our flesh get in the way. “A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls.” Proverbs 25:28 (NLT)

We need to be grateful and anchor our life in Jesus. It’s hard to be grateful to God in all circumstances we are in, good and bad.
