Today’s Scattered Seeds
We’ve all heard, and we’ve probably even said at one time or another, “He made me so angry!” But, is it possible? Or could it be that no one has the power to choose the way that we feel and the way we react?
This mindset has been around since the beginning of time when Adam blamed Eve for his sin, and she in turn blamed the serpent.
As popular as this idea might be, the fact is that no one has the power to control our emotions or cause us to sin. That’s on ourselves.
Sure, we’ll be tempted and tried. We’ll be tested, frustrated, let-down and betrayed, but the way we react to these things has nothing to do with the behavior of others. It’s all dependant on what’s taking place from within.
Whether it’s instantaneous or we have several days to choose our reaction it always comes down to whether we’ll follow God’s will or follow our heart.
If we’re walking with God and we’re immersed in His Word, the Spirit will lead us. It will remind us of those things we have read, and help us to make the right choice. Our job is to choose well and to keep choosing well as we follow His lead.

Read John 14:15-31 where Jesus talks about The Holy Spirit, our advocate, comforter, and Spirit of truth.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26, NIV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
