You will need to become so discouraged by trying to improve your peace/joy by trying to improve your circumstances that you just QUIT! You give up HOPE that you will ever have consistent peace/joy that way. Then your only hope is God. I can tell you that for me I KNOW WITH GREAT CERTAINTY that if I try to use my mundane circumstances to gain peace/joy I will fail every single time. I have no hope in that. I hope you’re a quitter, too.
