A lot of people are unhappy where they are, with what they are doing, and with the way things are. The problem is they only spend their energy complaining or explaining their situation and never take action to do something about it. You talk about wanting friends, the way you are treated, having fun, getting out of debt, changing residence, buying a car or house, or losing weight. I know there are some situations that you don’t have the ability to change, but you can start today changing the things that are in your power to do so. (Acts 4:18-20 Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. 19. But Peter and John replied, Which is right in God’s eyes; to listen to you, or to him? 20. As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.) You are the only one who can do anything about where you are. Spend less time complaining, moaning, and groaning about it and start today doing something. Take responsibility for your life. We often pray and ask God to do something miraculous to change our lives, when God is saying for us to get us and start doing something about it ourselves. Don’t allow fear, or the things unknown about tomorrow keep you in the rut you are in. The effort of moving forward is so much more rewarding than the consequences of remaining where you are. Step up and take charge of your life. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
