  1. I have a co-worker who is a complainer & I’ve fallen into the pattern of complaining with him. I am not showing him Christ when I too complain. May I adopt Christ’s attitude of humility & servitude not join the bandwagon of what isn’t right or should be improved in our processes & others! Please forgive my disobedient, Lord! All to His glory not mine!!! Thank you for this much needed word this am! Blessings!

    • It’s so challenging not to get sucked into that trap. Good job recognizing the negative pattern and taking a step toward choosing the better path by God’s strength!

  2. Thank you, Becky! My kids are grown, but I’m often impatient with my husband (and he with me). I will continue to pray for humility and patience. And God will bring me His peace!

  3. Thank you Becky for such a beautiful prayer. I confess, my walk with my dog this morning was full of grumble and complain. He just wanted to go everywhere and sniff/pea everything!! And I wanted “the perfect peaceful cruise” However, even in my grumble God showed his sun rising, fish jumping in and out of the ocean stream. People walking, talking and laughing. Bike riders, runners and joy filled dog walkers. Soooo even though I continued to grumble, I grumbled in gratefulness…if that even is a thing…lol

    Have a blessed grumble free day \0/

  4. Becky,

    It is so easy for me to be a grumbler. Usually when I’m tired or stressed out & trying to get things done. When that happens I take time later in the day to pray & ask forgiveness. I then go on about my day trying my best to shine Jesus’ light. I take Philippians 2:3-4 to heart. When I’m at work or volunteering my thoughts are about others. How my tasks are helping them. Be it simply stocking rooms, assisting RNs with a task, putting meals together, giving out food baskets. nothing is beneath me when it comes to helping others.

    Blessings 🙂
