Without a doubt the WORSTE predicament I have ever found myself in is SELF PITty. It is that place where everything in life is happening to me, I am simply coping with what has come instead of actively using my ability and gift to chose to create things in my life. It is that place where I am such a "good sport". I can really "make due". I am "doing my best with the hand I've been given". There is a big difference between "I am using all the resources I posses to create the resources I lack and to further create what I want." and "Well, I just have to do the best with what I've got." as if what I've got has nothing to do with my own choices, as if I have not choice or power to do something else.
The idea of making the best of what I have is a GREAT place to start, it's WAY better than the idea that since I believe all my issues were thrust upon me I will do nothing to create a solution. Yet, it is a serious trap. Isn't that what it really means to believe we are prewired genetically, and there is no epigenetic solution?
If I were only a body, that could be true, but since I am a spirit within a body, I have epigenetic control. I don't have to be a slave to my biology. That's why it matters that I am a daughter of God. It means I have choices and I'm not stuck with all the hands I've been dealt. Obviously, I do not know how to grow new limbs, etc. But when it comes to many physical issues, I have a lot more control, just my making better choices for myself.
God has the keys that unlock the power to change my life. He uses them in my behalf, I have to ask, seek them out, and walk through the doors when He opens them.
