Did You Have a Tough Day?

II Corinthians 2:7-10  “We are:

  • Hard pressed on every side, but not crushed;
  • Perplexed, but not in despair;
  • Persecuted, but not abandoned;
  • Struck down, but not destroyed.We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”

Worry is a Waste of Time

Psychologists call it Mindfulness. The ability to be present in this moment. Because the past is gone and tomorrow is not yet here, the only element of time that I really have is this moment. Unhealthy mental hygiene is consumed with focusing on the regrets of the past and worrying about tomorrow’s problems. Today will be lived one moment at a time.

Today will be filled with new experiences. Unexpected phone calls, unplanned interruptions, unscheduled meetings will fill this day. Is today simply chaos followed by confusion and without meaning? Or has God filled your appointment book with events that all have a purpose?

Is God is Always Wise?

Perhaps you have questioned some of the circumstances of your past. God why did this happen? Why this pain? Why this disappointment? You are not the first person to ask such questions of God.

Will God restore your past wasted years?

One of the great challenges of life is our past. We all have wasted time, wasted resources and wasted relationships. Think back over your life of the decisions you made that you regret. The words that blasted out of your mouth like a cannon ball and only now do you see how destructive those words were. We all have regrets. Regrets, mistakes and pain are why Jesus came. God uses your past to clear a path for change today. Consider these verses and how powerful the Gospel is to help us understand our past.

What does God want from you in 2016? (Part 2)

What is God’s will for your life? Does he want you to turn left or right at Elm Street? Over the years I have come to see that God always works with our decisions, ultimately he is more concerned about our character as we make those decisions. Many go through life angry, impatient and frightened this is not God’s will. He is more interested in the person we are becoming while we are making decisions. Consider these verses.

What does God want from you in 2016?

Often we want to know God’s will for our lives. Usually we mean we want God to tell us: Should I take this new job? Should we have another baby? Should I change roommates? I have found God’s will is not so much about what I should do but rather what kind of person should I become. Here are several verses that clearly inform us of God’s specific will for our lives.
