I don’t want to be a grumbler.
But I am.
As a woman who looks for Divine intervention in her life, I read my Bible, study my Bible and journal from my Bible. And lately the word, grumble, has come up way too often for me to ignore any longer. Once, I hardly even saw it. Twice, I read back over the phrase. But after I saw it (and heard it) 4 or 5 times, I knew God was trying to get my attention.
When I grumble, I allow my circumstances to steal my joy. And my trust.
Psalm 106: 24-25 “Then they despised the pleasant land; They did not believe in His word, but grumbled in their tents; They did not listen to the voice of the Lord.”
When I complain and whine about anything (and everything) in my life, I am not listening to the voice of the Lord.
They are not Fruits of the Spirit.
They hamper the Holy Spirit’s work in my life.
I want to be a woman who trusts God when life is merry, and when life is tough. I don’t want my circumstances to define who I am.
I am a woman of God. I trust God. I believe God.
Hmm… does my grumbling attest to my trust?
Psalm 16:11 “You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
31 days! I’m taking the challenge!
Seems daunting — both for writing, and for…. well, trusting.
Here we go…. hope you join me!
Are you going to grumble? Or are you going to trust?
