I recently heard someone quote the following, and have since found myself thinking about it quite a lot…
If Christians spent as much time praying as grumbling, they would soon have nothing to grumble about.~ Unknown
What do you think?
Well the first thing I want to say is, yes, I know I moan about things just as much (if not more) than the next person. I could try and justify myself by saying that these last few years have been very tough ones for myself, my hubby and my Mum and Dad on the health front, but that would simply be me making excuses.
At the end of the day, what do I gain from moaning or grumbling? Not a lot other than a whole lot of negativity, which if you refer back to my blog post last Saturday (Negativity) you’ll find I spoke about how the negativity of those around us can bring us down – and that folks it not what I want to do today or any other day.
Imagine a world where instead of moaning or grumbling, we got down on our knees and prayed – Are you smiling now thinking of the folk who seem to moan constantly being on their knees all the time?! I am! Keep that smile going and keep those happy and positive thoughts going, it will make a difference to you and those around you.
Let’s all try and stop grumbling and moaning and try and have a positive impact on those around us instead of spreading our own negativity.
