A wise man once told me:A successful life does not consist of the ability to do what you want to do, when you want to do it. It does not consist of having what you want whenever you want it. A successful life is enjoying doing what you ought to do. When you learn to enjoy doing what you ought to do, you will have a successful life.
In 2 Corinthians, God is the focus of the triumphal procession, via Christ in us. By way of the disciples of Jesus Christ, living as His agents acting upon His will, the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Christ is manifested in every place.

Once there is greater clearity regarding the decline of America and liberty, it is appropriate to peacfully pursue a thoughtful, spiritual response. Those who live by the faith of Jesus Christ have a responsibility to endure these challenging times to perform God's will, not our own will. Start by praying for our country, and our local communities; seek the welfare of your local community. As you walk by the spirit, do whatever God inspires in you.
"Such as these depend absolutely on the good will and fortune of those who have raised them, both of which are extremely inconstant and unstable. They neither know how to, nor are in a position to maintain their rank, for unless he be a man of great genius it is not likely that one who has always lived in a private position should know how to command, and they are unable to command because they possess no forces which will be friendly and faithful to them."
