Blaming their circumstances for what they are


"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don't believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up
and look for the circumstances they want, and,
if they can't find them, make them."
- George Bernard Shaw

"Be joyful always; pray continually;
give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

"I am not saying this because I am in need,
for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances."
Philippians 4:11

Lord God learn me to look up to the circumstances in the right way.
Keep the bad things away of me.
Make that I can be pleased with the things that surround me.
I thank you that I may be here on earth and hope to share in Your Kingdom.
In Jesus name, Amen.
