Working early

Well, It is a little after 1 AM here where I live while I write this. This is my second time in the last 7 days that I am working an hour I am normally not accustomed to. It is to continue to perform work for the IOS issues I may have mentioned in an earlier Blog. No matter. I was thinking on the way into work this morning that I am prone to complaining about my work. Maybe having to work late. Perhaps having to do something I don't agree with, but the boss seems to find important for some reason known only to him and to God. But then I remembered that this is a part of the fall. And that I am to work as unto the Lord - with joy. And that all my labors for the Lord will not always be as they are today. Since I will be too tired to post a blog entry tomorrow, my verse for today is: Genesis 3:17-19 esv And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wifeand have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Revelations 14:12-13 esv Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”

I find when I am drained and tired and weary that I complain more than normal. Not that it makes it an okay thing to do but I do find that is when I do it most.

God knows and knew you would complain. We don't know why these things are in our lives but we really need to learn to rejoyce even when we would rather complain!
