Romans 12:2-8
2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is. 3 As God’s messenger, I. give each of you this warning: Be honest in your estimate of yourselves, measuring your value by how much faith God has given you. 4 Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, 5 so it is with Christ’s body. We are all parts his one body, and each of us has different work to do. And since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others. 6 God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out when you have faith that God is speaking through you. 7 If your gift is that of serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, do a good job of teaching. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money. share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.

Paul is laying the foundation for emotion health to the Romans in this letter. You will find no better place for instruction on emotional health than the Word of God. Dr. Gary Chapman has laid out 5 principles for what he calls reality living that applies to how we react to the world around us. These principles are based on the Word of God.
1. I am responsible for my own attitude.
Attitude has to do with the way you choose to think about things. If we focus on the negative, things will get worse. If we focus on the positive, things will be better. Your attitude can have a profound effect on your emotional well being for the good or for the worse depending on what you choose!
2. Attitude affects actions.
Attitudes affect our behavior and words. You may not be able to control your situation but you can control your actions and words. Your are responsible for what you do within your environment!
3. I cannot change others, but I can influence others.
Our attitudes and actions are contagious. Every word you say and every action you take will influence people around you for better or for worse. But the same is true for those around you. Don’t let others decide for you how you will respond. Go against the grain and respond to meanness with love and kindness.
4. My actions are not controlled by my emotions.
In our thoughts, we interpret what we experience around us. Our thoughts will become emotions or feelings. Eventually, we take actions, based on our thoughts and emotions, we do something. Our action will enhance or destroy our relationships. Our actions are far more important than our emotions. So think before you act.
5. Admitting my imperfections does not mean that I am a failure.
To admit your own past failures does not mean you are taking all the responsibility for the trouble in your relationships. It simple means you are taking responsibility for where you have failed.

Have a God Day!
