I just started this blog this past week and it has helped me. It has made me realize how negative I am. I complain a lot and feel sorry for myself. When I think about what I would like to say to anyone who is listening I don’t want to complain about everything I can’t do. I am done.
Instead of complaining I am going to look to God’s word for encouragement. First I will find what the bible says about complaining.
Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
Philippians 2:14-15 ESV
So, if I grumble or complain I am not blameless and innocent. Yes, I am saved by Jesus Christ dying on the cross for my sins, so in that way I am forgiven. But, I am supposed to shine as a light in the world as I live among others. When I am grumbling and complaining I am not shining as a light.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
Colossians 3:23-24 ESV
I need to remember that I am serving God in everything I do. I know that if I was doing something and I could see God watching I would do my best. I would not complain. We have probably all done it when our boss was watching. You try to do your best. God is always watching. He knows our thoughts. He knows how many hairs you have on your head. God is almighty, all powerful.
I just need to remember these verses. I know that with God’s help I will change to be the person He wants me to be.
