Whether your happy or sad, busy or lazy, it doesn’t matter:

“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” – Colossians 3:17

Our circumstances are just that – simply conditions in which we live. They shouldn’t affect our attitudes, our actions, or our behavior in any manner. Instead of allowing your circumstances to affect you, remember that at all times, in all situations, we should be doing ____ for God.

Fill in the blank. If it’s working, then work for the Lord (by respecting others, and showing love). If it’s talking, talk up His praise (and don’t spread rumors or judge people). If it’s cooking, then cook to honor Him (through eating healthy and sharing in fellowship).

Now in case you’re wondering, this isn’t just for you. It’s for each of us, myself included. Thankfully, God knows we aren’t perfect, but He is willing to help us become better Christians. All we have to do is try.
