Get Out of Your Chair

It’s just too hard.  There is no way I’m ever going to get this done.

I hear that a lot. I hear it in my own head especially but I hear it from others too.  It’s that sense of finality… that idea that what lies ahead is just too great for me to handle; that it’s not even worth my effort to fix; it’s just too hard.

You aren’t the only ones who have felt that way.

At the beginning of the year my church, Restoration Church, does a three week fast.  I participated this year and one thing I heard God saying was, “Deeper. Give me all of your heart. I want you totally devoted to me.  I want to be your first love, your passion.” That is a tough one. I still ponder exactly what He means.

Good News!

That phrase typically is followed by announcements of some kind. Good News…… job promotion, bought a house, new car, baby on the way, engagement, debt free, college acceptance letter, free coffee in the drive thru, clean bill of health, summer vacation, the list can go on and on. Everyone has their own versions of good news. Good news is cause for excitement, for celebration! I know I get excited over any kind of good news, even if it’s small. But what about THE GOOD NEWS? How do we respond to that? What kind of excitement does that generate?

Is God Really to Blame?

People often falsely assume everything that happens must be God’s will because He is God.  You’ve probably heard the phrases, “Everything happens for a reason,” or “God allowed it.” Or God is sovereign when talking about sickness, disease or evil on the earth.  I personally don’t like these sayings because to me it sounds like God is responsible for all the bad things that happen in this world. more “Is God Really to Blame?”
