Are you lonely? Are you isolated? Are you fear fearful? Are you worried? Are you tired? There is a father, there is a brother, and there is a spirit, and He is God, and He is as close to you as the unconscious breath you just took.
God is famous for opening doors that no man can open, for working miracles and provision out of nothing. Trust in that today!
God knows what you're going through. In the person of Jesus God experienced loneliness. He experienced anxiety. He had to face fear and trepidation as he was offering up his life as a sacrifice once and for all humanity and human history. God knows.
I think oftentimes when we overthink we overanalyze, we get fearful, worried, anxious, self-absorbed and very myopic. We forget that life is about serving others and setting others up for their own success and their own journey and their own path.
One of the purest forms of worship we have left on the planet is this act called rest.
If God has so freely forgiven you, my brothers and sisters, let us now freely forgive one another.
How do we heavenize the world? We stand in solidarity with those who are overlooked, with those who are dismissed, those who are seen as less valuable.
What if you knew that God was near? How would that change your wants? How would that change your fears? How would that change your goals?
Bitterness harms you. Bitterness makes your world smaller. Bitterness makes your opinions huge and your perspectives small.
YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL ❤️
you don't have to be famous to be valuable. You don't have to have a lot of money to be valuable. You don't have to score a lot of points in your respective sport to be valuable. You are valuable because you are you.
Who’s winning this thing?? 🏈
Can I give you a prescription today for your overthinking, for your fear, for your worry, for your anxiety? Here's my prescription. Cry out to God, take a nap and have a good meal.
YOU ARE SO LOVED & VALUABLE
You have eternal value. You have everlasting value. You have forever value, because of God's love and what Jesus has done for you.
The truth is you were made and I were made for eternity, and you will live forever. And I believe you will live forever in the immediate presence of Jesus.
Jesus is the point of life. Jesus is the focus. Not rules, commandments, conditions, even the over-emphasis of character and integrity, both of which are imperative and so important. But character and integrity should only be reflected as it's seen in the person of Jesus.
When's the last time you invited God to work with you in the embarrassing places of your life? He promises he'll finish it. He's not going to leave it undone.
We're striving and stressing to prove and perform our value and our worth. And I got good news. Jesus sets us free from these practices.
The church doesn’t belong to the preacher, It’s belongs to JESUS.
Your relationship with God is not based on your performance. Your relationship with God is based on Jesus performance. That performance is enough.
Rest is still one of the purest forms of worship we have left in the human experience. For when you rest, He does not. When you wake up, you're reminded, He didn't wake up. He's been awake.
Lean into the arms who will guide you and hold you and walk you and comfort you and keep you. He's enough.
Jesus is working from a fact. And the fact is, we are all by definition, blind in comparison to God and what he's doing on earth.
Rest is an opportunity for you to recall, rehearse, and remember.
I'm not saying that hard work and no days off can't build a wonderful career. I am just concerned, but by the time you realize you've built this beautiful brand and this wonderful career, you realize that you traded the buoyancy, health of your soul.
There is an understanding of Jesus that only comes with partnership and walking with Him and working with Him and following Him.
Take time to be still and pray today🤍
All of this, will NEVER be enough.
I GOT GOOD NEWS, HE LOVES YOU.
We exist as a community promoting a person. His name is Jesus. And he changes everything.
People are the plan of God.
The goal is to build a community where people don’t have to leave parts of themselves to get in the door.
Your best days are not behind you.
Let’s be people who include God in everything we do!
From now until forevermore, Jesus wants to be your best friend.
Jesus isn’t a coach, he’s a father.
I can’t see my future, but I know the one who holds my future.
Go, and never live another day without me. - Jesus
