Please read Philippians 4:2-7 first (or the whole book of Philippians for a clearer understanding).
Rejoice in what I say.....
In everything we do, we should be rejoicing. No matter how tough things get, we need to be happy and clear-minded. We all realize that things can get pretty hectic in the kitchen, with the stress building up by the second, especially when we get busy. Once we get frustrated, the next logical step is to gripe and complain.
That brings us to the question of why we complain and whether or not it's all that bad. How much pain was Christ willing to go through for His job on earth; that being dying on the cross for us? He ended up with nails in His hands and feet, as well as a crown of thorns on His head. He was willing and able to do that because it was His God-given job and He wanted to. My point here is that we shouldn't take for granted the gifts that God has given us. Use your job for God's glory and use it in a manner that others can see God's love in you. When things get rough, just remember to keep a good, clear mind, be happy, and let your faith be known so that others may be able to come into the light through seeing God's grace at work in YOU!!!
Just think about this the next time you find yourself in a jiffy with your attitude. Remember, ALWAYS take your problems to God first and don't forget to rejoice in all things. Just wait and see what a better and happier life you will live.
If God is speaking to your heart about these things, and you need
somebody to talk with, please don't hesitate to e-mail us about your need and
somebody from the Fellowship will contact you as soon as possible. If you
have a prayer request or would like to start a theological discussion on this or
any other topic please feel free to post it in our Message Boards.
