- 1. The call was from my wife, about a dead battery. It wasn't about an accident.
2. She couldn't start her car just as someone parked right next to her who as able to give her a jump.
3. We live close to places that carry batteries. In fact, the first store didn't have the right one, but the large store next to it did.
4. I was able to replace the battery without any problems and the car started up like a champ. That is a big deal since I'm not mechanically inclined. At all. Really.
I have a master's degree in whining, but in this case I looked at everything that was good or workable about the situation and thanked God for it.
Colossians 3:15 says, And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Griping is way too easy, but offers no reward. Being thankful takes more effort, but God gets the glory and we'll feel better for it. I'm convinced God pays attention to our attitude and blesses us if we have a grateful heart.
