Unnatural reactions

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Rom. 12:12

Joy, patience, and faith may not always feel honest reactions to problems but we aren’t being fake by choosing to respond as if they are. As we decide to react to the little things that happen to us in our lives we build spiritual and emotional habits. If we practice joy, patience and faith every day then when some big crisis occurs we are equipped to respond with the character and nature of Christ.

Lord help joy, patience, and faith become more natural for me.
