i know i am guilty of always wanting what i think is fair and right. if i have been wronged i will usually complain or go out of my way to see that i am not unjustly accused or done wrong. i pray to be more faithful and not to complain, i will complain when liberals get in office and when i am sick or when i am done wrong, if even a store short changes me i complain. i am spoiled and will sometimes whine over my psoriasis on my hands. i would like to be strong in faith and give glory to God for what i consider affliction, i really have no real affliction. Hbr 11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection: Hbr 11:36 And others had trial of [cruel] mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: Hbr 11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; Hbr 11:38 (Of whom the world was not worthy they wandered in deserts, and [in] mountains, and [in] dens and caves of the earth. Hbr 11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: Hbr 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
