'Whatever My Lot': Refusing to Complain, Even in the Storm

Recently I wrote about my tendency to complain, and how I have absolutely no reason to.

“I have a nice place to live, a great job, a husband who loves me, a child on the way, a family I love and see often, a free country in which to live and worship without fear,” I wrote then. “So I have nothing to complain about.”

This statement is true. Especially when I compare my circumstances to others’.

But even if God took away all those earthly blessings, I still wouldn’t have reason to complain. He’s already given me everything in himself. And he promises that “for those who love God all things work together for good.”
