Moving from complaining to worship

Chaplain Yolanda Walker, M.Div.  Author, Life Coach, Counselor, Pastor, and Counselor

Exodus 17 1-7

Sisters sometimes in the busyness of life, we find ourselves complaining.  We may complain about our spouses, our children, our job.  Have you taken time to day, just to give God thanks for your family, job, career, etc.  Complaining uses negative energy and most people would prefer to be around someone who is not complaining but thankful.  Yes, there may be some things in life that we may have some legitimate concerns or at times feelings of hurt or sorrow.  This is normal.  However, as the songwriter said, My good days outweigh my bad days and I wont Complain.  Complaining will not change the situation.  Let’s look for the solution, in our worship we will hear from God concerning our present circumstances.  

There was a story told by a minister,

"Out West, a cowboy was driving down a dirt road, his dog riding in back of the pickup truck, his faithful horse in the trailer behind. He failed to negotiate a curve and had a terrible accident. 

Sometime later, a highway patrol officer came on the scene. An animal lover, he saw the horse first. Realizing the serious nature of its injuries, he drew his service revolver and put the animal out of his misery. He walked around the accident and found the dog, also hurt critically. He couldn't bear to hear it whine in pain, so he ended the dog's suffering as well. 

Finally he located the cowboy --who suffered multiple fractures--off in the weeds. "Hey, are you okay?" the cop asked. The cowboy took one look at the smoking revolver in the trooper's hand and quickly replied, "Never felt better!"
