Jesus Calling 20141009

I am really enjoying the kid's version of this book.  So much easier to understand.  Great for people whose English is not their mother tongue.  The original version is also good.

Tell Me All About It Do everything without complaining or arguing. —Philippians 2:14 

You have been on a long, difficult journey. Sometimes your energy seems to be almost used up. You’ve found it hard just to keep going, but you have not let go of My hand. And I am really proud of you for that. 

But there is one thing I want you to work on: your complaining. You can talk with Me about anything—you can even complain. I understand you better than anyone, so I am the perfect One to vent to. Telling Me your stresses and your problems helps you get a grip on your thoughts. It also helps you see things from My point of view. 

But complaining to others is completely different. It can lead to the sins of gossip, anger, and self-pity. 

When you need to grouch and grumble, come to Me. Let’s talk it out. Spill out all the bad stuff, so I can fill your mind with My thoughts—and your heart with My song. 

Jeremiah 31:25; Philippians 2:15
