Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. “Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. - Philippians 2:14-15
Dear Jesus, you lived 33 years and never once did you grumble. I am not sure I can go 33 minutes without grumbling to myself. I am grateful that your life covers mine. But I see what you are saying. When I live out my days cheerfully, then I shine in front of a world darkened by selfish grumbling. I want the music of my life to match the words I hold out to them. Come by your Holy Spirit and exchange my poor pitiful grumbling with your cheerful, faith filled joy. Make my life a blessing to those who need to be cheered up today. AMEN
"Anyone can grumble in the face of adversity. Keeping a cheerful spirit is the real accomplishment."
