3 Days – 3 Quotes: Day 3

Today is my final day for the 3 day 3 quote challenge. Thank you once again Wendi for thinking of me ๐Ÿ™‚ Guys, stop by, tell her hey and show some love and encouragement ๐Ÿ™‚

These things are so cool! They make us think outside our norm.

So, with this being the last day and all, I figured I had better put some scripture in here. And not just any scripture mind you…I mean you are supposed to end things with a bang, right? Well, I don’t know about that bang theory but this one is a doosy.

Ready….set…go!

Ummm…how is that supposed to happen?

I live in Louisiana in a town called Rayville and I can’t even drive a quarter of a mile without mumbling under my breath because I hit another pot hole.

I’m also divorced, which means I have an ex-everything and well…yeah disputes and a lot of things I keep to myself for the sake of my kids. I try hard not to let them see me mad.

Even at work I hear people mumbling about a new task that they must do. I see fellow employees disputing the way the new task must be done.

But how in the world can we, as followers of Christ, do ALL things without murmurings and disputes?

I’m 50 and haven’t figured this one out yet. Not even with the whole love your neighbor as yourself attitude.

So dear friends, I am asking for your input. Share your thoughts in the comments and let us work together and figure this out.

  1. Thank you so much for taking on this challenge……..I so enjoyed reading your quotes. As for how to do all things without……..I have no Earthly idea! I guess a lot of prayer.

  2. As for work we all seemed to be conditioned to murmur or complain, all employees do it. Bad roads lack of repair, I was murmuring this morning the transport’s suspension was not good nor the roads so ouch as we were shook and bounced along the road. Can undersand the divorced part, you go from being an acceptable friend to an outsider overnight, how did my personality change so quickly this was my dispute. Much prayer needed on this I think.

  3. This relates to what James has to say about the tongue in his book, chapter 3. It’s hard, he says. The latter verses point to resolution, of God’s wisdom that bring righteousness and peace. And he tells us in chapter 1 to ask for wisdom! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, and then there’s all those verses about asking forgiveness.

  4. It is hard, I tell you. But I don’t think it was meant to be easy, if not it probably won’t have been anywhere in the Bible. I’m a complainer, I cannot even deny it in public, I do pray that the Holy Spirit will stir my words towards more thanksgiving, this has always and will always be my prayer.

    For the surprise I told you the last time: I’m in Louisiana just now, visiting. Baton Rouge though. I don’t know how close that is to you . . . but I thought you should know.

  5. I love that verse! One of my favorites… of many, of course. But it is a tough one. Another one of those verses to remind us we need Jesus! While we do have this command, He knows we will fail at times. But He also knows what it is like for us. He died to save us from ourselves! Don’t give up on trying. Don’t beat yourself up. (Satan will do that for you!) Ask for the forgiveness that Jesus died to give us. Even when we cannot trust ourselves, we can always trust in His unfailing love! He is loving to give us that other verse we need…
    “I can do ALL things through Christ Jesus which strengtheneth me.”
    – Philippians 4:13
    God loves you, Stu! At ALL times! โค

    1. The only way I can see pulling that verse off is being in mindset of praying without ceasing. But when we do fall, which happens frequently, yes we do have the forgiveness of Christ.

      Thanks for commenting in this sis ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. amen, brother! Sometimes it’s not so much about accomplishing as it to strive… to think He is worth trying. Keeping our eyes on Him instead of our progress. My son introduced me a song year ago that the Lord gives me when I stumbled…
        “Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face.
        Then things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.”
        – Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, a classic hymn
