What effort?

Here's what I am thinking about this morning: when tempted to do something I shouldn't or to break a habit that I don't like in myself, how hard do I fight, really? Do I struggle and struggle and sweat and pace and, finally, am overcome? Or do I think about it, and give in without much of a fight?

When I make a list of the things that make me unhappy or that I would like to change about my life, and then divide that list between what I have control over and what I don't, there is actually a lot that is in my control. Focus on those, trust God with the rest.

Could it be that a happier existence is just a decision away?
