What Have You Complained About Lately?

Soon the people began to complain about their hardship, and the Lord heard everything they said. Then the Lord's anger blazed against them, and he sent a fire to rage among them, and he destroyed some of the people in the outskirts of the camp. (Numbers 11:1) New Living Bible

Man, the Lord slapped me with this one today!! Today I had to have dental work done, and the total out of pocket for me was $250, and then I had to get Latrell's prescription filled, and that was $20. So needless to say, by the end of the day I was complaining about all this money I had to pay. And then I started to complain to one of my friends "every time I get some extra money I have to spend it on something". And then I called a family member and complained to them about it (because telling just one person wasn't enough for me). :-) Well, that family member got me in check real quick. And she said to me "did you know I don't have any medical insurance, and how much it would have cost me out of pocket to do what you had to do today with insurance?" That smacked me in the face really hard!!

Here I am complaining about my co-pay, and there are people in the world that don't have insurance, and can't afford to have procedures done! I had to repent to the Lord after I got off the phone with her, and I had to thank Him for even allowing me to be able to afford to PAY the out of pocket expense.

Can anyone relate to this? It may have nothing to do with money, maybe there's something else you are complaining about, you might be complaining about the job, when there are thousands and thousands of people without work today. Maybe you are complaining about your spouse or children, and there are thousands of people praying for spouses and or children.

If this is you, please repent now, ask God to forgive you for your grumbling and complaining. And then thank Him, and be grateful for His gifts of life, family, food, health, work and friends.

I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We'll do it together!!

  1. Kellee,

    I have also had to repent and speak against my complaining spirit. It seems like it so easy to complain but then I have to stop and think and tell myself to say "God I thank you". The flesh will never be satisfied and will always find something to complain about. I used to complain about silly stuff such as whem I was doing laundrdy and the clothes had piled up. I would catch myself saying, "man, this don't make no sense having all these clothes to wash." The Holy Spirit quickly put me in check and said "Oh, you must have forgotten about the times when you were washing the same items of clothing every few days because that was all you had. Now you can go a few weeks without doing laundry and still have plenty of clothing." I thank God for being a God more than enough. Thanks Kellee!! Love ya!!

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Start Where You Find Yourself

"When he came to his senses, he said, 'how many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death"! (Luke 15:17)

How many of us need to do as the prodigal son did, and come to our senses? How many of us are going day by day, living "prodigal lives"? Here is some definitions of a Prodigal Life:
Living excessivelyWastefulCostly RecklessLacking cautionThoughtless You may ask, what does a prodigal life have to with the title of today's blog. EVERYTHING!! You have to know where you are, before you can start where you find yourself. Just as this son began to realize where he was, we have to do the same thing. He realized that he was in a pig pen starving to death, because of his prodigal living, and he came to his senses, and started where he found himself.
He had to hit the reset button on his life, but, he had to come to his senses first. And that's what we have to do, when we find ourselves in prodigal living. We …
