“Let us be joyful always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for us”
Over the past few weeks many areas have been receiving extreme record blowing cold temperatures and at work, social media, even in the morning while I wait for the shuttle all I hear people saying is “It’s COLD”.
Tuesday as I was leaving work the shuttle drove pass union station and on the corner stood SEVERAL young/older men, woman and a few teens. I shared with my son how grateful he should be that he actually has a “WARM” place to GO TO and that I didn’t want to hear him tell me how “COLD” he was or is outside (while walking about a minute from the parking garage to the shuttle). I asked him to look over at the crowd that has NOWHERE TO GO and actually have to STAY OUTDOORS ALL DAY & NIGHT.
That thing stayed on my heart and throughout the week I began to see different stories on social media about being grateful to have a warm place to be ex. home, work, church, ect. We complain about EVERYTHING and the mere fact that there are people dying in this cold weather EVERY NIGHT should be a wake up call as to how FORTUNATE and BLESSED we are.
Today I want to ENCOURAGE at least ONE to enter your home and say THANK YOU FATHER FOR YOU HAVE TRULY BLESSED ME & MY FAMILY. I also want to CHALLENGE you….YES YOU!!! The next time you even think about saying “I’m COLD” or “it’s COLD in here” think about the people who have absolutely NO HEAT for DAY/WEEKS at time and in that moment THANK GOD AGAIN!!!
Be Praising God for the WARMTH He and He ALONE gives you
Be Not Complaining
