How to have a good day

…WITHOUT ME YOU CAN DO NOTHING. ‘JOHN 15:5 NKJV You can change the course of a day satan has negative plans for, by spending time with the Lord, especially when you sense any attitude or behaviour in yourself that’s not Christ-like. Jesus said,’… without Me you can do nothing.’ (John 15:5 NKJV). On the other hand, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ (Philippians 4:13 NKJV). Negative feelings are like unwelcome house guests: the worst thing you can do is to invite them in. You may not be able to override them in your own strength, but if you seek God’s help He will enable you to walk according to His ways, not by your negative emotions and perspective.  ‘But what if someone offends me?’ The Bible says we’re not to be oversensitive or easily offended. Actually we are commanded to forgive those who hurt us, not letting things fester. Sometimes we want to forgive and do what’s right, but we find doing it difficult. More often than not, the right thing is the hard thing…
