    I Quit Complaining

    I Quit Complaining

    Job 10:1 (NLT)
    I am disgusted with my life. Let me complain freely. My bitter soul must complain.

    Exodus 16:2-4 (NLT)
    2 There, too, the whole community of Israel complained about Moses and Aaron.

    3 “If only the Lord had killed us back in Egypt,” they moaned. “There we sat around pots filled with meat and ate all the bread we wanted. But now you have brought us into this wilderness to starve us all to death.”

    4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Look, I’m going to rain down food from heaven for you. Each day the people can go out and pick up as much food as they need for that day. I will test them in this to see whether or not they will follow my instructions.

    Numbers 14:27–30 (NLT)
    27 “How long must I put up with this wicked community and its complaints about me? Yes, I have heard the complaints the Israelites are making against me. 28 Now tell them this: ‘As surely as I live, declares the Lord, I will do to you the very things I heard you say. 29 You will all drop dead in this wilderness! Because you complained against me, every one of you who is twenty years old or older and was included in the registration will die. 30 You will not enter and occupy the land I swore to give you. The only exceptions will be Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.

    Philippians 2:14–15 (NLT)
    Do everything without complaining and arguing, 15 so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.

    1 Peter 3:15-16 (NLT)
    Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. 16 But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.

    I Quit Making Excuses

    I Quit Making Excuses

    Luke 14:15–20 (NLT)
    Hearing this, a man sitting at the table with Jesus exclaimed, “What a blessing it will be to attend a banquet in the Kingdom of God!”
    16 Jesus replied with this story: “A man prepared a great feast and sent out many invitations. 17 When the banquet was ready, he sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come, the banquet is ready.’ 18 But they all began making excuses. One said, ‘I have just bought a field and must inspect it. Please excuse me.’ 19 Another said, ‘I have just bought five pairs of oxen, and I want to try them out. Please excuse me.’ 20 Another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’

    Exodus 4:10–11, 13 (NLT)
    10 But Moses pleaded with the Lord, “O Lord, I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now, even though you have spoken to me. I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.”
    11 Then the Lord asked Moses, “Who makes a person’s mouth? Who decides whether people speak or do not speak, hear or do not hear, see or do not see? Is it not I, the Lord?
    13 But Moses again pleaded, “Lord, please! Send anyone else.”

    and brought Israel through the midst of it,
    His love endures forever.
    to him who led his people through the wilderness;
    His love endures forever.
    and gave their land as an inheritance,
    His love endures forever.
    He remembered us in our low estate
    His love endures forever.
    and freed us from our enemies.
    His love endures forever.
    Give thanks to the God of heaven.
    His love endures forever.

    A Weary World Rejoices

    A Weary World Rejoices

    Luke 1:26-38 (NLT)

    26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, 27 to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. 28 Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!”

    29 Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. 30 “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. 33 And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!”

    34 Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”

    35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God. 36 What’s more, your relative Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age! People used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and is now in her sixth month. 37 For the word of God will never fail.”

    38 Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.

    The God Who Shows Up

    The God Who Shows Up

    Isaiah 64:1–9 (NLT)

    1 Oh, that you would burst from the heavens and come down!
    How the mountains would quake in your presence!
    2 As fire causes wood to burn
    and water to boil,
    your coming would make the nations tremble.
    Then your enemies would learn the reason for your fame!
    3 When you came down long ago,
    you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations.
    And oh, how the mountains quaked!
    4 For since the world began,
    no ear has heard
    and no eye has seen a God like you,
    who works for those who wait for him!
    5 You welcome those who gladly do good,
    who follow godly ways.
    But you have been very angry with us,
    for we are not godly.
    We are constant sinners;
    how can people like us be saved?
    6 We are all infected and impure with sin.
    When we display our righteous deeds,
    they are nothing but filthy rags.
    Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall,
    and our sins sweep us away like the wind.
    7 Yet no one calls on your name
    or pleads with you for mercy.
    Therefore, you have turned away from us
    and turned us over to our sins.

    8 And yet, O Lord, you are our Father.
    We are the clay, and you are the potter.
    We all are formed by your hand.
    9 Don’t be so angry with us, Lord.
    Please don’t remember our sins forever.
    Look at us, we pray,
    and see that we are all your people.

    The Light Shines in the Darkness

    The Light Shines in the Darkness

    Isaiah 9:2–7 (NLT)

    2 The people who walk in darkness
    will see a great light.
    For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
    a light will shine.
    3 You will enlarge the nation of Israel,
    and its people will rejoice.
    They will rejoice before you
    as people rejoice at the harvest
    and like warriors dividing the plunder.
    4 For you will break the yoke of their slavery
    and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders.
    You will break the oppressor’s rod,
    just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian.
    5 The boots of the warrior
    and the uniforms bloodstained by war
    will all be burned.
    They will be fuel for the fire.
    6 For a child is born to us,
    a son is given to us.
    The government will rest on his shoulders.
    And he will be called:
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
    7 His government and its peace
    will never end.
    He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
    for all eternity.
    The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies
    will make this happen!
