I Just Want to be Happy —message from 2019 Feb 17

We are enlightened to expect God to meet my needs, or our needs. We are not to expect our spouse or our boyfriend or our girlfriend or work or a hobby or a sport to meet all of our needs. If we expect somebody or something to meet all of our needs, we are going to be disappointed. God said, “Expect Me to meet all of your needs. Trust Me.”

What’s the Point? —2019 Feb 10

King Solomon who wrote Ecclesiastes was a seeker on a quest for the meaning and purpose of life. Have you tried to straighten out something that is crooked? Have you tried to straighten out a relationship that just refuses to be straightened out? Have you tried to solve a problem that you just couldn’t figure out? Have you tried to change somebody or a circumstance but you just couldn’t do it?

A Wise Steward — 2019 Feb 3

‘Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life.’ . . . Worry does not distinguish between people. It works on the rich, the middle class, and the poor.  Jesus is basically saying there are two types of people. those who worry and those who don’t. And one of these days I want to be like the ones who don’t.”

Lordship Key to Faith (pt.1) — 2019 Jan 13

Jesus is not position conscious, of who’s the boss, who’s in charge. Where am I on the ladder, in the picking, on the team? We are empowered to: acknowledge that God is Lord of all, place God first in our life, understand that when we acknowledge the Lordship of God, we accept our own responsibility and accountability.

Who do You Say I Am? —2019 Jan 6

It is doing the will of the Father that matters, not the words we profess. Actions are louder than words. ‘I want to know what love is.’  And one may, with their lips, loudly profess their faith in God and even invoke Jesus as their Savior, yet deny him by thoughts, words and deeds.
