“Being a mumbler, a grumbler, a whiner or a complainer does not seem to show that you are ACTIVE. In fact, you are yet as PASSIVE as those who don’t do anything but keep silent, UNLESS you SUGGEST or RESOLVE your situation/ circumstance.”
Many instances like, #the Israelites’ wandering for 40 years in the dessert and were not able to enter in God’s rest (promise land) because they are grumbler, complainer, mumbler, whiner…
We don’t realize that God uses our situations to test our hearts. On how are we to react. Are we thankful enough in every situation, whether good or bad? Or are we faithful to Him knowing that tomorrow won’t be the same as today?
Everywhere we go if we keep the same old attitude of being grumbler/ complainer and ungrateful, our situation won’t change.
It’s like, new level, new devil. If you can’t pass stage 1, why would you jump into higher level when you know you’ll just fail as you did in stage 1? Kung di na nimo mapasahan na stage, hantud dra ra jud ka….grade 1 section 12 hantud next year mao lng gihapon repeater, and so on and on…
Dr Cindy Trimms says, “It’s not the people around you who’s got wrong or have some problem, but it’s you because you let them in to your cycle, you let them part into a relationship with you….and you let them hurt you…and you never even pray for it before it comes. But if you start changing your perspective, if you renew your mind, everything else around you will also starts changing including how you’ll react on certain situations.”
Yes, totally agree. We must realize that God sends people to test our characters.
You must thank your enemy’s role in your life! Without them, you can’t learn the true act of LOVE.
Last week lng, I was reminded about the true value of freedom and what real freedom really is after I watched this movie “IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE (1996)” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlpNI7cDEMk) —This true to life movie about injustice’ main character was imprisoned for 15 years for the crime she didn’t committed and when locked inside the “high intensive cell” for 6 months without light, window, a person to talked to and was tortured, she was almost gone mad. To ease her uneasiness, she kept walking back and forth (for the first week) inside a very small prison (bartolina) screaming, “At least, please… I need someone to talk to…!!!”
When asked, “How did you survive?” She simply smiled and said, “Well I realize I can’t change my situation, so instead, I need to change my PERSPECTIVE. So I started to do meditation and was able to have PEACE. They might have my body but not my SOUL.”
It must first begin with what you think.
LAST NIGHT’S MEMORY VERSE:
Psalms 55:22 “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.”
To God be the glory!
