Would you like some cheese?

Do everything without complaining or arguing. Philippians 2:14

WHINE....Would you like some cheese? I am not talking about children in this post, I am talking about adults. "I don't want to do that job!" "It's not fair!" "He makes more money than I do!" Okay, enough!

Day in and day out, we hear adults whine. The next time you are complaining about your job (which by the way, you can change, just quit), think about this: Someone out there has it worse than you. Maybe someone doesn't have a job and is in danger of losing a (what they consider their dream) house. Maybe a person (who by no choice of their own) is paralyzed and can't walk. Maybe it's a mom out there who has stayed home for over 25 years with her children; she has no pension fund, no insurance fund, no holidays, no vacation days, she works 7 days/week on call 24 hours/day, no sick days, no social security available to collect, there isn't a gold watch celebrating her 20 years of service and she can't quit her job, but she knows that it could be worse. There might be a woman out there who is unable to have children. Maybe it's a woman who had to return to work due to certain circumstances and she would much rather be at home with her children. The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence.

Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect. ~Margaret Mitchell

If you are seriously that UNHAPPY maybe it's time to make a few changes. Are you walking on the path that God has chosen for your life? In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines the steps. Proverbs 16:9. Let's start there - Read your Bible. Take a few minutes every day to PRAY and LISTEN to God. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this. 2 Timothy 2:7.

In our Christian lives, we must focus first on God. Allow Him to direct your steps, rather than trying to take matters into your own hands. If you can't change your situation, find something GOOD in it!

Have a Happy Day :0)
