I have a confession to make, lately I’ve becoming more aware that I have a tendency to complain about dumb, insignificant things and I’ve got to nip it in the bud. I say to myself that, “this is such a first world problem”, which reminds me that I’m being ridiculous.
(Definition of first world problem: a usually minor or trivial problem or annoyance experienced by people in relatively affluent or privileged circumstances especially as contrasted with problems of greater social significance facing people in poor and underdeveloped parts of the world)
Maybe some of you are you wondering what I was complaining about. Well, I had the nerve to complain that the ice cream I wanted was in the freezer in the garage and I had to go outside to get it. Pathetic, right? I know !! Not a proud moment but none the less, it is a truth. I have come to realize that when I was keeping a daily gratitude journal my attitude was definitely better and I was less apt to complain but be more thankful. I went and found my journal.
So, today I start being more intentional with noting all the things I have to be thankful for.
Do you believe that prayer changes things? I do ! Do you want to see God move in our church and our community? I do. Then join me for prayer at 8am before our Sunday service begins. Please feel free to come in and join us, even if you are a little late, just enter quietly. All are welcome!
Ladies- mark your calendars for Oct 28th for Coffee with Helen
Helen Minerella will be joining us for a casual conversational time together from 9:30-12:00. Helen will be answering your questions over coffee. (Questions should be submitted to Pastor Beth ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org)
I pray that God has been using this current sermon series, Real Hope, to show you that whatever it is you might be struggling with, He is the answer. I hope to see you all in worship this Sunday.
