Clean the rugs, wash the windows, vacuum, dust... UGH! The list of chores to do goes on and on! And all this work is causing Timmy to wonder if it would be better to be off living with his buddy, Mr. Key.
Timmy's attitude about wanting to be an only child is starting to get on everyone's nerves. Until he receives the surprise of his life
HOW ABOUT YOU... Have you ever been so frustrated by your own family, you wondered what it would be like to be a part of someone else's?
CHECK THIS OUT... I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. (Phil.4:9) God understands that we aren't always going to be happy with our lives. Some of us may feel we have honest reasons to resent where God has placed us because of abusive situations or extreme poverty.
How then can we be feel blessed with our daily lives? God promises that all who leave their hope and trust with Him will receive a peace that is beyond understanding.
Think of Jesus. He had all the worldly reasons to wonder why He was being punished on the cross even though He was the only man who ever lived without committing a single sin. But before He was arrested, He prayed out loud to His Father, "May Your will be done!" And the ultimate sacrifice was committed for all of us.
A true measure of our faith in God is trusting Him not just to give us happiness, but to praise Him when we feel like we deserve more than what we have.
