No not birth control, life. If you have been paying attention you will notice that you life has ebbs and flows. It may be that certain times of the year are harder for you than others. There is a multiple part solution to that reality that I might suggest.
- Journal daily about your walk with God.
- Engage continually and consistently in ministry to other people.
- Write a daily blog.
This blog has turned out to be a leveling influence in my walk with God. This is not done so people will read it, it is done out of obedience to something that the Lord laid on my heart. This is written for Him. What I have discovered, I have to continually pursue Him, even when I do not feel like it, in order to be in any way faithful to write here daily. I have noticed in the past two years that this daily exercise has served to moderate the yearly mood swings. Sure there are times when I am more encouraged than others. But the amplitude of the variations has lessened.
The common denominator for the multiple part solution suggested above is simple. It is an outward focus on God and others and not so much on me.
