What I learned today

Selfishness leads to despair.

Problem: Always thinking about what your life could be, what you think it should be, or what you so desperately hope it will be, instead of thinking about the goodness that’s in your life today because of the mercy and favor of God.

Solution: Once you stop thinking about only your wants and only your needs and start thinking about how the Lord wants you to live your life according to His Word, selfishness seems to disappear. And when the thoughts of selfishness once again reappear and you start to become discouraged and you start to despair, recycle your thoughts back to God and he will once again restore your joy.
