“But godliness with contentment is great gain” 1 Timothy 6:6, KJV.
Complaining about the pay on your job. Complaining about how you aren’t recognized. Complaining the house is too small. Seeing someone else get a new car, makes you complain about the car you have. Secretly complaining within that your husband isn’t attractive with that additional weight. You don’t have anything good to say about anything. Everything is falling short of your expectations, even God.
Go to the hospital and see the sick fighting for their lives. Go to the wife that just lost her husband to cancer. Go the father that lost his son to violence. Go to the 25 year-old in jail for life. Look under the bridge and see where the homeless sleep. Talk to the countless of women that don’t have job, yet you do.
Quit being a complaining woman. Be a grateful woman. You are where you are and you have what you have. Be thankful for what God has done, and be confident that He will provide what you need. A loving and all-wise God will bless you when He blesses you. Let your contentment stand on the truth that God always rewards godliness. Serving Him and having a grateful heart is being godly. Considering those and being a blessing to those that have less than you is being godly. Praying for those that have suffered loss in the storm is being godly. If He didn’t do anything else, be thankful and godly. This will bring great gain in your life.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your truth. Forgive me Lord for complaining. Teach me Lord to always count my blessings and be thankful! Help me to walk in godliness with contentment which is great gain. I will serve you with a grateful heart and thank You for what You have done. Thank You for helping me to love my husband and others. Help me to pray and do something for those suffering loss. I will no longer be a complaining woman. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
