1 Nephi 18:16
Praise and no whining
16 Nevertheless, I did look unto my God, and I did apraise him all the day long; and I did not murmur against the Lord because of mine afflictions.
[Even though he was bound and his wrists and ankles were swollen and there was a tempest going on he never lost faith.]
Nephi praised God because he could see the bigger picture and he could see the hand of the Lord in all things. He trusted God and knew that His purposes would be fulfilled.
Job Chapter 5
7 Yet man is born unto atrouble, as the sparks fly upward.

Even with all of Jesus' trials and being nailed on a cross,He understood and forgave.
Don’t mess with Mr. In-between.1
This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth. Our opportunities are limitless. While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help.
Well could we reflect upon our lives as individuals. We will soon discover much to prompt our personal gratitude.
