Who Am I??

Paul's Hardships
3We put no stumbling block in anyone's path, so that our ministry will not be discredited. 4Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; 5in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; 6in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; 7in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; 8through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; 9known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; 10sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.

Wow, if that doesnt make me want to be a better person i dont know what will.
As I read this I was thinking, WHO AM I. I mean really, there are people in this world who have suffered soooo much pain and distruction, and here i am with an amazing husband two beautiful boys, my own home, two cars that run, running water, I even have 4 couches FOUR (im retarded i know) but seriously, WHO AM I?? What in the cotton pickin world do I have to complain about?

I want to be more like that. Someone who rejoices at the amazing blessings i have in my life, rather than someone who whines and complains all the time.

I want to be the kind of person who doesnt cause others to stumble in their walk.
Im done :)
