When we complain we fixate on negatives and wander down a path of self-pity, spreading seeds of dissatisfaction to anyone who will listen. Let’s spread joy instead.
Dear God, forgive my complaining.
I have so many gifts in my life,
but sometimes I fixate on my dissatisfaction instead.
I spread my criticism and annoyance to people around me
and before long they join in and start complaining too.
Help me bring my complaints to you alone and refocus my heart.
I want to spread positive thoughts instead of negative ones.
Guard your tongue today and keep your complaints to yourself and to God. You can talk to him about anything.
