November 3

Humbly Grateful, Not Grumbly Hateful

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations.” James 1:2

Sometimes we have to admit that it’s hard to “count it all joy.” Sometimes we complain and rather than being humbly grateful, we become grumbly hateful.

Oh, how I wish that, beginning today, we would emulate the faith of the saints that have gone before us — saints like Fannie Crosby, the great hymn writer.

For most of her life Fannie Crosby was blind, and yet, at the tender age of eight, Fannie wrote:

Oh! What a happy soul am I, although I cannot see, 
I am resolved that, in this world, contented I will be.
ow many blessings I enjoy, that other people don’t.
To weep and sigh because I’m blind, I cannot and I won’t.

And do you know what? .... She didn’t.

  • How can you apply this truth to your life today? 
  • How can you share this truth with someone else?
