Your EQ is 153 Two possibilities – you’ve either out “Dr. Phil-ed” Dr. Phil… or you’re a dirty liar. Seriously though, your whole “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” philosophy is really what defines emotional intelligence. You’re warm, open, and very optimistic.

Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

Whenever I pray, I really do believe my prayer will be answered, but what does that mean in everyday life? Does my thinking and do my reactions change? I know a lot has been written about believing prayer in the area of finances. When I pray about financial difficulties, I am to stop thinking thoughts of scarcity, poverty, penny pinching, and the like. I am to be reasonable, asking God for help in how to use my money, making wise and prayerful decisions, but not any longer thinking anxious thoughts of not being able to make ends meet.
