Wednesday in the Word-Recipe for Misery

Some people in life cannot figure out why life has dealt them a miserable hand.  They see others around them enjoying life and it seems to add to their misery. Such people even feel at times that others are out to "get them" and that is why their life is miserable. 

Can I be totally honest? Well of course I can this is my blog right? 

I have found that most of us bring misery on ourselves. Here is just a few reasons that I know this. The person that lives this way of life usually....

...Thinks about themselves and no one else
...Uses the word "I" as much as possible
...Constantly is looking to the opinion of others
...Always suspicious
...Expects to be appreciated
...Jealous and envious of others
...Never forgets a criticism
...Trust nobody 
...Thinks their way is the ONLY way
...Thinks everyone owes them something
...Selfish

If you want to live a miserable life then I've just given you the recipe for it.

The Word of God says;

...And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. Luke 6:31 (KJV)
...Do everything in love. 1st Corinthians 16:14 (NIV)
...He must become greater; I must become less.  John 3:30 (NIV) 
...And whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:44-45 (ESV) 

May I ever be mindful that even on a (bad day) that the Lord is my ONLY true source of Joy! Only He can deliver me from misery and He will when we put Him and others first.

Life isn't about us...but it's all about HIM! 


Hugs and blessings, Cindy
