“I hate my life. I will freely express my complaint. I will speak as bitterly as I feel.
But here is what it does – it increases frustration and vexes the soul.
Matthew Henry wrote:
“But when, like Job, we speak in the bitterness of our souls, we increase guilt and vexation. Let us harbor no hard thoughts of God; we shall hereafter see there was no cause for them”
Often when we are in the pits, we become upset and frustrated. It’s only natural.
However the more we speak of our frustration, the more the obstacle grows.
Speak often about how the opponents’ team which is filled with Hall of Famers- is able to jump higher, dunk harder, shoot more accurately and see if it actually helps your team’s players to grow.
Rather speak about what your team does well … such as how your players have gifts such as speed, the ability to predict each other’s positioning and faster reaction timing and see how they rise to the challenge of taking on the Hall of Famers.
Focus on the positive.
Focus on God and speak faith not negativity.
