Title of this quote is: "I Choose Self-Control"
"I am a spiritual being...
After this body is dead, my spirit will soar.
I refuse to let what will rot, rule the eternal.
I choose self-control. I will be drunk only by joy.
I will be impassioned only by my faith.
I will be influenced only by God.
I will be taught only by Christ.
I choose self-control.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
To these I commit my day.
If I succeed, I will give thanks.
If I fail, I will seek his grace.
And then, when this day is done,
I will place my head on my pillow,

May your week be filled with God and I pray that you keep your focus on God and not what the enemy is doing - ignore him- don't turn to the right or left but keep your eyes, heart, mind, will, everything within you on God. Remember, the things you see around you are temporary but the things you cannot see are eternal.
