The Freedom of a Calm, Cool and Steady Life
People are born to be free; it's a gift from God. The question is, are you willing to go through whatever it takes to be free, or do you want to stay in the mess you're in for the rest of your life? If you want to be free, the key is to start doing what God wants you to do, one step at a time, and you'll eventually walk out of your messes.
In 2 Timothy 4:5, Paul told Timothy to be calm, cool and steady and to keep performing the duties of his ministry. That's good advice for all of us.
Instead of being ruled by our emotions when we're confronted with problems, we should calm down and focus on doing what God has called us to do. If you're upset about something, instead of letting it ruin your life, turn it into something good.
Overcome evil and anger by praying for those who hurt and abuse you. Counter feelings of selfishness by doing something good for someone else.
Whenever the enemy tries to stir up your emotions, calm down and do what God has called you to do!
Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, help me to be calm, cool and steady, so that I can be free to do the work that You are calling me to do.
