A colleague was recently upset when another coworker said he was cranky. While admitting to having complaints, he didn't understand how he could be perceived as cranky or difficult. There may be times when all of us view ourselves differently than how others may see us, but we can reflect and recenter our lives on God to be sure we are approved!
God wants each of us to be part of His family, but He expects that as a member of His family, we will commit our lives to Him. As followers of God, we are to learn and grow in our knowledge of and love for Him. We are to know His truth and to do His work with that truth. We may have bad days, but we should take the time to reflect and call on God in order to draw closer to Him and follow His path for our lives. When we are following Him, we know that we will not be ashamed or cranky complainers. Our lives will be filled with His purpose and praise for the blessings we experience!
Don't be cranky or complain, but choose to follow God so you can be approved and filled with praise for Him!
Thank You for the blessings in my life. Help me to work for You and Your glory so I can be approved. All praise and glory to You! Through Jesus I pray, amen.
