Fruit of the Spirit: For others to know you are a child of God people must see God in/through you. You must live in a way that is holy [from 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 (4)]. That does not mean you must/should wear a cross, carry Bibles, speak in tongues, or use religious words. In other words, let your fruit-bearing life show that you are a child of God. You are the light of the world, let your light [fruit-bearing life] shine! – Bishop Tim
As we mature naturally and spiritually we learn to not let the small things cause us to fall apart. I find it may take a moment to collect my thoughts and pull it together but the Spirit helps to bring that joyful laughter at the thought that something tried to take my joy. Yes, I have learned to laugh and rejoice when faced with the cares of this world that before would have caused a negative response.
