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!

A Person Of Value

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.

Knowing The Shepherd

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In Charge

Do not loose hope! Do not despair! This will happen when 

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!

Always Present

Through both good times and bad, it is important to remember 

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.
