Confession

Monday morning I woke up to discover that my cold had come back. I tried all day not to let it affect me, but in the end it did. Monday evening at my class I learned about changing my circumstances. About not dwelling in them and accepting what the enemy has brought against me, or whispered into my ears, but to move forward and to change them. Anyway, this week, even though I have not felt good at all, I have not let that stop me with my house work. So today, I exploded! I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and it was going down hill fast. I began to grumble and complain about my circumstances, about not feeling good, and still having to do everything myself like there was nobody else here in my house. Well, my good friend directed me back to a note she sent me earlier this week. About how grumbling and complaining is against Him, God Himself, and we will take our families into the wilderness with the grumbling and complaining. I share this to say, I quickly changed my words and my attitude toward my day and circumstances. Shortly after talking with my friend, the atmosphere in my house was better because I took my focus off of me and my situation and focused on Him, the one who created me and won't give me anything I can't handle. So, thank you my friend, and thank you Jesus for loving me so much - I love you too!

Wonderfully said! I've tested this myself since complaining can often take hold of me...I hate it! And I've see the blessings we can recieve when we choose NOT to indulge ourselves the right to complain no matter what the circumstance. Thanks for reminding me...Merry Christmas! Terry
