Grumbling And Complaining

Please, Lord, forgive me for the times when my response to your prefect will is complaining. Instead, instill in me a heart that sees your hand moving across everything that happens in my life.

There are days when I wake up bitter and with grumbling in my heart. Make those the days that I seek you from the very moment my eyes open. Help me cling to you when bitterness seems easier.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Philippians 2:14-16

It's easy to murmur, Lord, just as it was for the people of Israel in the desert. Please remind me of how toxic complaining is and how that must be removed far from me to ensure close fellowship with you.

Help me not to allow grumbling and complaining to ruin my testimony.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14

Strengthen me and give me wisdom, Lord, to turn my complaining nature into one of rejoicing and praise. There are more blessings in my life than I could ever list, simply because you delight in me.

Make the first thoughts I have each day be of you - how you have provided, blessed and worked in great and mighty ways once again. This is the moment that you have given me - I will rejoice in it.

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. Philippians 4:11

The desire of my heart, Lord, is to purge my heart of grumbling and complaining and replace them with joy and praise and laughter. You delight in me - I want to delight in you.

Your promises are new every morning, and I will rejoice in how you make them come to pass.
