Fixing Faults

God wants us to keep growing as Christians. I believe that one way to do this is by admitting our faults to oursleves so that we can face and work on improving them.

My biggest fault is complaining. I do it different ways; I utter under my breathe and  I even share my complaints with others. Complaining places me in worse moods than I could be in if I were to drop the poor act. It has also caused uncomfortable situations for others around me.

                  After reading this I see that I have work to do. Although I catch myself more now than I did before, I still need to complain less. I am great at being thankful but then I spoil it when I complain. I pray about this often and today God directed me to this message from Joyce Meyer. I was touched by this so I wanted to share it with you all. 

 

 

 

 

I pray that my thankfulness overpowers my complaining even more in the future. I hope to stay focused on this so that I can eliminate this harful sin in my life. I also pray for any of you having this same issue. I pray that you fight is off too.

I hope that you all are having a great rest of your Sunday and I wish you an amazing week ahead!

Christy 🙂

    I’m not sure if you follow Steven Furtick but he said something so profound.. what we choose to magnify will only get larger. For eg. I have some pet peeves at home lol… but if I think about things all the time and complain about them they will only become more noticeable to me. However, if we choose to overlook and find a positive to magnify we will see more of the positive. Every problem we experience stems from our thought life – we need to as Joyce Meyer says constantly check in and think about what we’re thinking about.
    Thanks for sharing -I’m also a big complainer – trying to work on it.

    “For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one is like a man looking at his own face in a mirror. For he looks at himself, and he goes away and immediately forgets what sort of person he is.” (James 1:23,24) It always beneficial to “look in the mirror” by examining areas in need of improvement. I think we all have succumb to a complaining spirit at times. I too can follow this advice in striving to be more thankful. (Colossians 3:15).
