“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped in crooked generation.” Then you will shine like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the work of life.”
I read this today after wresting with a tooth ache all night. Do everything without grumbling or arguing! Really God, I would love to give you a piece of my mind. So many times I have argued with God and told him he just doesn’t understand my circumstances.
Jesus you have never felt alone. He was totally abandoned by his friends when he was in the Garden of Gethsemane. First, they fell asleep and then they ran.
I thought I had Jesus one time. Lord, you have never felt guilt because you never did anything wrong. I was reminded that he felt my guilt while dying on the cross.
Grumble, Grumble, Grumble … Lord, I sure wish I could sparkle like a star without all the hard work.
