It’s easy to complain, but it’s wrong. Complaining
puts you in a position of rejecting God’s gracious
provision. We are to stay away from complaining
and arguing. Once we have received eternal life, we
don’t stop complaining overnight. Yet complaining has
no place in believers’ lives. Complaining is habit-forming
and can be self-destructive. We should stop grumbling
about our spouses, children, church, or friends. Life may
feel like a desert, and we may be hot, tired and anxious
for a new place to live and work, but beware of complaining
about anything or anyone…it’s like a poisonous snakebite!

Philippians 2: 14-15
Not every person can become number one.
Not every person can reside at the top of
any profession, company, or institution. Not
everybody can be “the star.” But every person
can be a hero, a person of value, a person who
plays a vital role in seeing a greater good accomplished.
Every person can make a significant contribution in
whatever they do. Try not to become a person of
success. Rather become a person of value.
Read Proverb 20:7
When you receive and know the Shepherd
You have everything you need. A God who
Hears you, the power of love behind you,
The Holy Spirit to guide you, His grace
For every sin, a candle that lights the
Darkness, strength to not fall
And an anchor for every storm
When you receive and know the
Shepherd you have all you need.
Read: John 10:14-15
We must pay more careful attention
To what we have heard. So often we
Run around looking for some new
Thing to hear when we really need
To remember the Word we have
Already heard and obey them. Rely on
Those time tested truths that have
Held their ground through the winds
Of change. Like I’ll never leave you
Or forsake you; your life is not futile,
Your failures are not fatal and your
Death is not final. We have eternity
With HIM. Just think about it.
Read Hebrews 2: l
Sometimes we need to go a step further.
Not just appreciate what others do but
affirm who they are. When we say thank
you to someone that’s a nice thing to do.
But when we acknowledge and express
Our gratitude for what others are in character,
In motive, in heart we are affirming them
personally. A mark of maturity is the ability
to affirm, not just appreciate. Let’s move
up to a high level of expressing our gratitude
building one another up.

I Corinthians 3:9
There is a saying if you don’t have something positive
To say about someone or something, don’t say anything.
Listen to what you are saying. Have you told that person
who matters most to you how you really feel? Your words
are Windows to your heart. Examine carefully what you
say and learn more about what’s inside of you. Then change
what you need too! Now, listen in on your window and hear
what’s in your heart. I hope it makes you smile.
Read: Proverb 13: 2-3
Keep a daily check on your character: Of all the abilities you
may possess, the one to develop is character. Ability will
enable you to go to the top, but it takes character to keep
you there. Character will always win the day. Someone
once said “Fame is a vapor, popularity and accident, riches
take wing and only character endures”. Good character
will not only bring you before kings it will cause you to
win in life, business and relationships.

You try to solve your problems by yourself. Hope returns
when you remember that GOD is still in charge. HE has
the power to change your life. When things
seem hopeless or impossible return to GOD, pray to
HIM, praise HIM and wait patiently and courageously
for HIM to act on your behalf. God is in charge! Oh
yes HE is!

that GOD is always present and always loving. During the
good times, he rejoices with us. During the bad times, he
weeps with us. Never never does HE leave us to rejoice or
weep alone. The best thing of all is GOD always delivers
us into His marvelous light.
