How do you smile again?

This has been a full & just plain hard week. So many people suffering & exhaustion settling in for all. What to do? How do you find strength? How do you smile again? I think it’s two-fold: Hope in God & celebrate the people He’s given you. In the midst of the downpour, lean in to Him. When surrounded by chaos, hold your people close. Tragedies-personal & corporate -always refine us to remember what’s most important. Strangely, we can sense a new peace. Ironically, pain brings perspective. We remember what we were made for: God & people. #lovegod #lovepeople #hurricane#hurricaneharvey #tragedy #pain #perspective #truth

Talking to Yourself

What if we actively believed this? What if we lived each day knowing His completed work has been poured into us by faith? Many believers strictly identify themselves as “broken” “depressed” “anxious” “no good” or “unloveable”. It’s human nature to call to mind our wounds instead of meditating on His wounds. He exchanges His complete victory for our incomplete faith. Colossians 1 & 2 is saturated with the identity of Christ. Today, we can end critical self-talk with one little phrase “I am complete in Him!” #jesus #complete #speaktruth #colossians

The Book of Hebrews Bible Study!

I know-your life is getting crazy again. Overwhelmed yet? Step back, breathe & ask yourself,”What is MOST important for me right now?” Personally, I have to lock in on the unchanging person of Christ. His worth gives me perspective, strength, & purpose. STEP ONE IN LIFE IS ALWAYS JESUS. When we grow in Him, His love naturally impacts people. Join us as we jump into our 9 week disciple-making study into the centrality of Jesus!
