It's easy to complain and whinge about what's wrong with your life. School is hard, friends haven't been there for you when you needed them, you don't have enough money to buy those new shoes you just have to have, you've been fighting with your Mum, your grandma has cancer... No matter how bad your life seems at the moment, God is good. He still loves you, he still has good plans for your life, he is preparing an eternal home for you, his spirit lives within you, he provides for your needs of food and shelter... So instead of complaining all the time, set aside some time to thank God for all that he's done for you and given you.
Just in case you're not convinced, here's another verse - Nahum 1:7 The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.
