So I have a problem with complaining. When something goes a way differently than I think it should go I get upset about it, moan and groan, and probably go into the thoughts of my life sucks and nothing ever goes right.

In trying to Do the Word that I KNOW and take every thought captive (from motivation of Darla) instead of sitting here and continually mulling over the bad day I am experiencing I’m going to do the opposite and praise God for what I didn’t get.

So instead of complaining about the fact that my professor cancelled class with no notice to me causing me to ride the bus to school for 2 hours and waste my time and money…
I will rejoice and Praise God that I have the privilege to be in school, the ability to learn, time to spend with God and doing the things of God, and the money to pay for my transportation.

Instead of complaining about the fact that I lost my headphones and can’t listen to my music from my mp3 player…
I will rejoice and Praise God that I have my hearing and ability to praise and worship God freely.

Instead of complaining about the fact that I possibly lost $20 and can’t get lunch or anything to eat right now…
I will rejoice and Praise God that he supplies all my needs and that I am not currently starving but have food in my cabinets and refrigerator @ home

Psalm 9:1-2

I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart;
       I will tell of all your wonders.

I will be glad and rejoice in you;
       I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
