Ready to Worship!
Christmas has arrived at Meadowood.
Wednesday night Bible Study starts like this 🙂
Sweet fellowship at our thanksgiving brunch today. I love my church family!
Next Tuesday, November 27, is Giving Tuesday. How can you impact your world?
Our Sunday message focused on Thanksgiving … as in having a life of thanksgiving. Do you remember the challenge? Go a month without complaining? How ya doing? I hope you haven’t fallen off the wagon yet. There are lots of things that bring an attitude of complaining into your life … my life too. What is your hot button? Your Job? Your friend? Your boss? Your spouse? Someone else in your family? The grocery clerk who can’t check out the Thanksgiving line fast enough? Your church? Your pastor 😊. Well, whatever that stressor is that prompts you to complain, I’d like to encourage you to think of ways you can turn your energies into making that thing you complain about a blessing. How can I adjust my thinking so that I see my problem in a different light? How can I bring a blessing to that checkout person? How can I help my kids have a better day? How can I be an encouragement to my friend? I am convinced that Paul’s reminder to be content in whatever state we are in (Phil. 4:11) is more spiritual than some self-help technique. “Rejoice evermore,” (1 Thessalonians 5:16) is really more about our relationship with our God than our relationship with who/whatever is causing our current stressful situation and prompting our complaints. Full disclosure … my bride caught me and reminded me of my sermon to me with a few simple words like … “Is that complaining?” Yep, I fell off the wagon too. But I am committed to making this “rejoicing” and “contentment” thing a life reaction based on my understanding of the power of Christ that works within me. I’m back on the wagon again! I hope you are working on it too. It is a great life choice and it is good theology! Happy Thanksgiving ... See more
