I can run a 5K like it’s nothing, but having to park far away from an entrance is ungodly!
The reverse is also true. How we spend our time and what we focus on matters.
I can; I will; and, NO, obedience isn’t optional.
What a service this morning! I preached the final message in this month’s series on leadership—Columns and Cracks. I taught on the tests of leadership—the test of sacrifice, the test of faith, the test of honor, the test of time and the test of character. The worship though!!!!!! They should’ve just handed me a pillow and blanket because I was good on the floor. I love our church, @thegatheringoasischurch. Next month I’m teaching a series called LIFE CHECK-UPS. It’s important that we get routine check-ups from time to time. I’m dealing with the motives of our heart, our love towards our neighbors and enemies, our effectiveness in service and what we do with our treasure. Let’s go! cc: @thegatheringoasischurch
I’m excited about service this morning! I’m continuing my series on leadership. #columnsandcracks
Come join us today! Service is starting shortly!
While it’s never fun or easy to go through a pruning process, I’ve learned that it’s purposeful. So, I accept it for what it is and remain hopeful for what’s to come. When what’s old has left, there’s room for something new.
Being a father has changed my perspective on life. I have a responsibility to teach my children how to live according to the Word of God, but my greater responsibility is to live a life that’s honorable so they can emulate what they see. And, I want to give my kids the greatest gift I could give another person—believing in them so much that they develop the courage to jump when everyone else is standing still. To my firstborn, my leader, we’ll jump together. Then, you’ll lead the others.
The misconception is that God is absent in the presence of trouble. That simply isn’t true. Oftentimes, we perceive the trouble we’re in to be more of a reality than the presence of God. That’s because we’ve focused on the trouble. We become consumed with it. We talk about it constantly, which does nothing to fix it. We must keep our eyes fixed on the Lord realizing that He’s with us, and the trouble we find ourselves in can be used for His glory. We can mature because of it instead of caving and quitting in the midst of it. We must recommit ourselves to prayer, meditating in the Word of God, consistent church attendance at our local church and godly counsel. This helps us to refocus so what’s troubling us doesn’t trouble us!
