Whiney

I am going to admit that I have been whiney lately and it is just not right. I am just not ok with this. I am not sure how or why it started. Maybe it is because my family has been sick for 2 months off and on, or maybe it is because I am not sure what is going on with me physically( Just alot of tummy issues.) I think maybe because I am having a hard time with keeping up with things around the house> I have improved this week,but I feel like I just waste time. I am feeling gulity because I have thrown God to the waste side right now as far as my bible study and time with him. Extremely guilty and I really need to forget about some things and focus on the important thing> GOD comes before anything else and I need to remember that everyday. I work from home and it can sometimes just swallow me up and then by the end of the day I am too tired from the day to do the things I need to do around the house or even sit and cuddle, because I am afraid I will not stay awake. This has to get better right? I pray that god will give me strength to do these things and be patient with my children and my husband. It is not fair for me to take what I am feeling out on them.
  I should be living through Christ and make the right choices according to HIS will.
A attitude is somthing I can choose> I can choose to be Whiney and expect the worst,or I can choose to be happy and see all the blessings I have around me, and expect the best.
  I have a house, I have enough money for food and to clothe my children and so much more. I have a job that allows me to stay home with my kiddos and see every milestone they go through or when they are sick, I am home to snuggle and care for them. Even though my job can be beyond stressful and makes me just want to curl up in a ball sometimes, I am home with my kids and that is a blessing.
    I have just heard to much Whining from me and I need to see  all the greatful things God has bestow upon me and filter all the negitive thoughts that I am thinking out.  At this point in my life, I have so much more than I ever expected too at this point, and I need to so increadibly greatful for God for giving me these wonderful things.

                                   Give thanks in all circumstances;for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I hear that! It's so easy to get whiney. God is so good to us too because He knows what we're going through. I think a lot of the time we get stressed or discouraged and instead of bringing out cares to Him and resting in Him we feel like we need to get our act together first. It's such backward thinking but something we all do, especially women. I know there are so many times I am frustrated if I would just run to Him, his Holy Spirit would soften my heart and help me to understand that I am defined by Him, and what he's already done for me, and nothing else. Praise GOd! He doesn't care if my house is a mess, or my hair looks pretty, He just wants me to share my life with Him. Thanks for sharing Nicole!
