ANTHEM “‘Give Me Jesus”- Jeanine Wheeler, Piano & Dustin Tatro, Organ
SCRIPTURE AND SERMON Rev. Steve
Staying Positive: Cure for Complaining
Optimism is the unwavering expectation that our loving God is working every situation, for our future good.
Complain means: to remain or stay overnight.
A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart, the spirit is crushed.
Proverbs 15:13 ESV
Gratitude is simply being aware of and being thankful for the good things that are happening in your life.
1) Gratitude eliminates toxic emotions (fear, anger, shame, envy)
2) Gratitude reduces pain
3) Gratitude improves sleep quality
4) Gratitude aids in reducing stress
5) Gratitude reduces anxiety and depression
Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7 ESV
