What's Your Problem?

“I wish we didn’t have to live next door to the church; sometimes I feel like we have no privacy.”

“I’m about to go nuts revising this book—every time I fix something, a new problem crops up.”

“I’m not jealous of people, whose grand kids live near them, but I sure would love to be closer to mine—they are seven hours away, and we only see them three or four times a year.”

I’ve said all of the above. More than once. 

It occurred to me recently that all of them are high-class problems. 

Compared to most of the people in the world, I have it easy.

I have a home (the above photo is not mine, but we live in a lovely one provided by our church family). 

God gave me the talent to write books. And revise them. 

I have three terrific, talented grands and enough money to travel and see them. 

So—what am I complaining about? Lord, forgive me. 

Ever find yourself whining about your problems, then find someone worse off than you?

  1. Jeanette: In answer to your question, Yes. There are people who don't have a home with a solid roof. Others don't have the luxury of having two cars. All these things take upkeep. Yesterday, I had to pay our property insurance for the year. Also, property taxes will be due early next month. These things take funds. I know people who aren't able to own their homes. I worship with some people who live in rental houses that are subsidized because they are unable to work.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
