Words About Complaining

Lately I have been really tired and not feeling great. Well, a few days ago my husband informed me that I have been complaining...a lot....Oops :)

So, a little while later in the day I got out my bible to read, and like always, before I started I prayed that God would reveal what he wanted me to learn through my reading.  

I open up my bible and this is what the VERY FIRST verse I read said:

 "Now when the people complained, it displeased the Lord; for the Lord heard it, and His anger was aroused."  Exodus 11:1

Wow...how humbling and awesome is that?! I love when God clearly speaks to me through his word!

I don't think I ever told Derrick about this, but I've been trying my best not to complain so much since. 

Complaining not only displeases God, but it displeases those around us who have to hear it all the time. Next time I feel like complaining, instead I'm going to TRY to just keep it to myself and be thankful that I don't feel worse and that I have an amazing husband who takes care of me when I don't feel good. 

What has God been teaching YOU through His word lately?
