I have a problem. I often catch myself drifting off into complaint mode.
Do you have that mode?
It’s when I look past all of my blessing, and choose to make what didn’t work, what didn’t go the way I hoped, the most important thing.
In complaint mode, I fail to see all the good gifts that God has so graciously given me.
This week, so far, I have been in complaint mode.
A few things haven’t been what I had hoped they would be.
There are things that I would like to change.
And so far, that’s all I’ve been able to see.
The only way to defeat the complaint is to focus on the blessing.
So, I thought that I would share something I am thankful for, just to help me leave behind my complaint mode.
I am thankful for…
my wife and our family.
more than enough food to eat.
my needs are met.
hope that tomorrow will be better than today.
grace to meet my failures.
the promise that Christ never leaves me.
…I am so blessed.
Ok, it’s your turn now.
What are you thankful for?
