“Take heed and be careful, do not turn to wickedness, For you have chosen this [the vice of complaining against God] rather than [learning from] affliction. Job 36:21 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Have you ever been around a Whining Wendy? You know the type, they only cry baby about how hard their life is. They can suck the joy out of you faster than a vacuum cleaner.
If you think that is a terrible experience for you, think of how it feels to Jehovah when those who are supposed to be His children are always complaining to Him and never thanking Him.
Here is the thing though, when you are a whine puppy you have nothing but dark clouds around you and infect those around you. No one wants to be around you, do you think Jehovah does?
When you are grateful for even the smallest of blessings you have the sunshine of joy in your heart no matter what your circumstances are.
That sunshine will guide others to the source of the brightest sunshine of joy of all, Jehovah. Take time every morning and evening to thank Jehovah for every blessing you can think that He has shared with you. As you develop this habit you will find yourself thanking Jehovah more and more throughout the day. It takes practice and commitment but after a while it becomes as natural as breathing.
“Every generation of Christians has to learn that whining is an affront against God’s sovereignty and goodness.” D. A. Carson

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
