Not our First Choice

Rather than gripe or complain over a situation, accept it immediately!  God alone can see the whole picture.  Keep your focus on God and allow the impact of this world not affect you.  He tells us to rejoice in all things.  1Peter 5:6 reads, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”

The telephone just rang and the service man was on his way out to check our air conditioner unit but has to run to a near by city to get filters for it.  We were first on his list so we got up earlier than usual.  My first instinct was to complain when I reread the previous paragraph!  I think it means for me to practice what I write.  Thank you, Father!

  1. “God alone can see the whole picture.” Take the personal out of our lives completely. Love the accompanying verse from I Peter. Thank you for this most helpful reminder. And please tell Larry the photo is spectacular!! ❤
