“Stop Sharing Your Unhappiness”

 We often hear the saying, “Misery loves company!”  It’s a very catchy phrase but it needs to be challenged.  Many of us struggle with multiple issues.  We are trying to overcome tough challenges.  In such a state, it is not necessary to unload one’s unhappiness or misery onto others.  It is not fair, not healthy, and probably not the right attitudes that Christians should display.

 If you are unhappy with your life, earnestly pray for God’s direction, for the Holy Spirit to guide you to greener pastures and calmer waters.  David said that the steps of good men and women are ordered by the Lord (Psalm 37.23).  If we trust the Lord to guide our steps, we should allow the Lord to guide us.

 On this Father’s Day, many will not think well of their father.  Some will live in the misery that Dad was not present, was not active, did not do right by the family.  Some may even detest their biological father.  We can live in that misery or be transformed by it.

 Our commitment must be to be different from the negative experience we encountered.  If your father was not present, make sure you are present for your family.
