Need to hear this

I decided to change my attitude today.
I really feel like most of the issues around here are ME.
I always have a horrible attitude, I need to lighten up, I need to be a mother and a wife and do all my "jobs" as praise to Him. I serve God in all of these things.

There is a book I want to read, but I am scared.
I guess I am know I need to change, but am scared to, scared it will be hard.
But really, it will make things much better, I can feel it.
Passionate Woman Desperate for God

And then this was the devotional I got in my inbox today.

Overcome!

1 JOHN 5:4 NKJ
4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is
the victory that has overcome the world--our faith.
5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that
Jesus is the Son of God?

All of us have a choice: we can either make excuses, or make
progress in life.

Most people have an excuse. They are too young or old, short or
tall, educated or uneducated -- whatever. We all have some
reason to justify our failure.

But when we focus on God and His ability and willingness to
help us in every way -- all our excuses beome insignificant.

God's intention is not for His children to be defeated by the
problems of life. No! The problems of life are opportunities
for us to experience God's help and provision.

God plans for His children to overcome.

How?

By faith!

And faith is available to anyone who will feed on the Bible.
Faith comes from God's Word like physical energy comes from
eating physical food.

So, if your faith is weak, take in more of God's Word.

Then your faith will grow strong. Then you can overcome the
problems you face. Then God will be glorified in you.

SAY THIS: With the help of God, I will overcome!
