Complain or Praise God?

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Thought for the Day:  Complain or Praise God; I choose to Praise God.

God has been so good to me so why am I complaining? In the midst of change taking place in the life of my family, I have had the assurance from God that He is in the very midst of the situation. He has led my husband to a wonderful position in a great church where God is leading that family of faith in amazing ways. He has opened a door for me that I never imagined and I never saw coming. In the transition, God has sent special people to assure us along the way that God has not done these wonderful things only to let us have roadblocks that keep us from fulfilling His plan. I had a special person in my life call me just to give me that message last night. God will fulfill His plan for our family in this transition. As I prepare for the coming time, I want to go through it without complaining about the little things. I want to go through it praising God in the obvious things he is doing on a day-to-day basis. Is my complaining keeping me from seeing His plan?

What will I do differently today to show others that I recognize that God is doing special things for my family in this transition. Will I complain about the little things I need to do to make the transition happen, or will I praise God in the way He has obviously placed events in our lives to show He is with us in the transition. I choose to Praise God!

Prayer:   God, thank you for friends and the way they show Your love to us everyday. Thank you for going ahead of us making Your plan, which is bigger that ours, take place in our lives. Forgive us for our human complaining in the little things. Amen.
