We just need to give up.

what to give up on

How often do we find ourselves complaining?

I know for me this happens sometimes.  I am going about my day and something happens I find myself complaining about the weather, politics, or life. I even must say I complain to myself at times but the problem is all the negativity hurts me.

How often are we pessimistic?

how about worry?

These questions are all above and I hope that we can all think about how these impact our lives and what we can do the change them.  I know we cannot be perfect but making small progress is greater than no progress.  Many times the small progress and steps we make have the largest impacts.

I believe most of these will have an impact on our lives so let us try to become the greatest person we can be with these tools of life.

    1. Sometimes people say the words surrender and let God do the rest. They often use surrender as a noun so they take no actions. I always try to remind people that surrendering to God is actually actions. The surrender of our own will to God’s is always a great step toward holiness. If we are trying to ride the fence we are lukewarm and God has some strong words for that. Just thought I would offer up that little bit. Anyone else?

      1. Absolutely requires action. James tells us faith without action is dead. Put that together with doing everything for His glory as if He asks us to do it, we can approach the surrender to His will and way. I was reminded of a great quote of our calling.
        ‘Not called!’ did you say? ‘Not heard the call,’ I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father’s house and bid their brothers and sisters, and servants and masters not to come there. And then look Christ in the face, whose mercy you have professed to obey, and tell him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish his mercy to the world. ~ William Booth
