Gripe or Go

Life can sometimes be just plain frustrating. Things happen to us that we don’t like. We get put into situations that we don’t enjoy. We have to do things that we don’t want to do.

Truth is, there isn’t a question of if things are going to go wrong, but when they are going to go wrong. When in these situations, we have two choices: gripe or go!

We can gripe about how life has thrown us another curve and get mad, or we can keep going. Things happen to us constantly that we don’t welcome, but we have to allow them to make us better. If we decide to choose griping, the problem will not go away, and we will be miserable until it’s taken care of. If we decide to go, we take the opportunity to fight through and make the best out of it that we can. When life throws us curves, we have to suck it up, deal with it, and allow it to make a positive impact on us!

What will you choose when things go wrong today…Gripe or Go?

Don’t let one of life’s curves get you frustrated today. Ask yourself…

1. Will worrying about this make it go away?

2. What must I do to work through this?

3. How would God have me respond to this situation?

4. How long will this last if I decide to “go”?

5. What can I learn from this experience?
