Complain or Proclaim

Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

How easy it is to complain and murmur about what you think is wrong.
But what does that do?

One thing it does is make God small in your eyes.
If your circumstances are bigger than God in your mind,
you are in trouble.

Instead of complaining - proclaim the goodness of God.
Seek the scriptures for verses that speak to your heart 
and address the troubles you are in.

Complaining will focus your mind on the problem
Proclaiming the goodness of God and His victory
takes you mind off the problem and onto
the One who can solve it.

1 Corinthians 10:9-11

Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
