The Whine Flu- Part 2

Take your temperature today & determine if you are coming down with the whine flu! Are you...

1. THE "COMPLAINER": Favorite saying, "It's not fair."
(David) "Have I been wasting my time Why take all the trouble to be pure? All I get out of it is trouble and woe." Psalm 73:13 (LB)
These people wake up negative. They rise and whine. David whines all through the Psalms. Life is not fair. God never said it is going to be fair. In fact, fairness ended in the garden of Eden & will not return until Heaven. As long as you complain about the fact that life is not fair it only makes you more miserable. But it will never change the fact that life is not always fair. Complaining does not work.

2. THE "MARTYR": Favorite saying, "No one appreciates me."
"Moses said to the Lord, `Why pick on me, to give me the burden of a people like this? I can't carry this nation by myself! ... If you're going to treat me like this, please kill me right now -- it will be a kindness! Let me out of this impossible situation!" Numbers 11:11-15 (LB)
These people are pros at having pity parties. When they are sick or under pressure they want everybody to know about it. How do you react when you don't get your way? Do you mount a complaining campaign? If you aren't sure, check your facebook & twitter posts!

3. THE "CYNIC": Favorite saying, "Nothing will ever change."
(Solomon) "Life is useless ... you spend your life working and what do you have to show for it? ... the world stays just the same ... what has been done before will be done again." Eccl. 1:2-4,9 (GN)
This kind of attitude is the kiss of death and will destroy the possibility of hope and change. What's the use?

4. THE "PERFECTIONIST": Favorite saying, "Is that the best you can do?"
"A nagging wife is like water going drip, drip, drip on a rainy day." Prov. 27:15 (GN)
"Better to live out in the desert than with a nagging, complaining wife." Prov. 21:19 (GN)
Nothing is ever right for this person. It is never good enough. This refers to husbands, too! Are you a nagging perfectionist? Nothing is ever right. Always arguing. Nothing destroys the home faster than complaining. Nothing destroys the harmony of a marriage faster than complaining. Nagging doesn't work. It just makes everybody upset. If your kids are complaining continuously, ask yourself if you are setting the example.

My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
