When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

To Complain in Low Mumbling Tones

Ouch! A term that I can most defiantly identify with, as well as everyone who has ever lived can too! MURMURING!
Philippians 2:14 "Do all things without murmurings and disputings:" [KJ] The American Standard even said; "Do all things without murmurings and questionings:" still yet another says; "without protests and arguments:"
Today, when I asked my young daughter to do an unpopular chore, I heard the quiet murmur. I will have to tell you that it actually hurt me. It deeply affected my spirit, then my mood. I had to ask God to give me His grace for the moment. Then He graciously prompted me how familiar He is with this emotion as well. The emotion of being hurt and grieved how His own children complain constantly about almost everything.
Major conviction there! My mind did a quick re-play on  just a few of the moments I have murmured to myelf (and others). If God would play the dvd of my life just on my murmuring moments it would fill up my computers capacity! Sad too...cause each time never helped me, but hurt HIM.
This is of course is beside the fact how our protests and questionings hurt others and the Kingdom of God as a whole.
Ask God to prompt you when the murmurs and disputings seem to gush out of your spirit through your mouth. "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" [Luke 6:45]. We don't want this anger, distrust and selfishness to be in our heart anyways.
I know I could and maybe should go deeper. Presently, I ask you to pray with me--"Lord Jesus, I ask for Your forgiveness right now...I am sorry for my selfish heart, for not trusting you and allowing anger to rule my life. I am so sorry for complaining about doing all you have told me to do. In Your Name I pray-Amen."
