Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. -- Phil 2:14-15
I always know I'm in trouble when the vein sticks out on my forehead.
Yesterday, my brows knit together and that bump on my forehead was evident.
I was mad.
No one in my family was noticing my "unfailing sacrifice." I swiped dishes off the kitchen table like a disgruntled busboy. I huffed at any family member who happened by...clueless to my need of assistance.
-Will anyone EVER understand my worth in this family? -Will anyone EVER help?
I grumbled and scrubbed each dish with angry fervor. My family breezed by in contented bliss.
That's when I spied my open Bible on the table. It was time for an attitude adjustment.
I slopped the soap from my hands and glanced at my Philippians Bible Study.
Enter: Philippians 2:14-15. Leave it up to God to give me what I need...when I need it.
I slumped into the chair, feeling a wave of peace. I think the vein was subsiding.
God's got some great ideas. They really help my face.
