Day 2: Weight of Complaint


Think about it~

Don't do

Anything

that you are going to

Complain

about later.

Is it eating that extra piece of cake?

Is it staying up too late at night?

Is it doing something that you know you shouldn't have done, but you did it anyway?

Or

Is it something that has happened to you beyond your control?

Is it _____________?

What is your Anything?

No matter how it came about

it is real.

Did you know that the first complainer was Adam?

He said yes to eat the apple that he knew that he wasn't supposed to eat!

He complained to God that

“the woman you put here with me –

she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it” .Genesis 3:12

Adam blamed God.

Complaining leads to blame

because it has to go somewhere.

Who do you Blame for what you are Complaining about?

Is it you? Are you the initiator?

Is it someone else

Or

Something that is out of your control?

Complaining

has no power to take away what you just did,

what happened to you, or what you may have to do.

It just adds more weight.

So how do we lose this pound of complaining,

no matter what is causing the complaint?

Complain

to

God

Yup.

Send your complaint to Him.

Complaint Defined: babbling, communication, meditation, prayer, talk.

I cry aloud to the Lord; I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy. I pour out before him my complaint; before him I tell my trouble. Psalm 142:1-2

Because

He is all ears.

He listens.

He will take your pound of

Complaint

and release you from carrying its burden of

Blame.

Therefore,

let's fast from

Complaining

today.

Every time you want to

Complain

Immediately take

Jesus' Hand

&

tell Him

so that

He will carry it.

But most importantly

you will actually

Lose 2 pounds today

because

if you fast from

Complaining

there will be no

Blame.
