Preparing for Sunday

Last Week:

We started the process of recognizing when we live out of FEAR instead of FAVOR of the FATHER. Several of you have already shared with me how that reflection has been helpful. If you have a story, please click reply and tell me about it.

I hope you have been able to reflect some this week on what your own “orphan spirit” issues may be.

This Week:

Psalm 139:23 [widescreen]We will take a look at facing the failures in our lives. How many times have we wrestled with the same sin or pattern? How many times did we commit to choosing another way? And sometimes it feels like we're getting nowhere. I want to invite you to begin now praying for God's GRACE to become more real in your life. Perhaps too often, we have looked at the failure for too long and have neglected the truth when facing failure: GOD STILL LOVES ME!

Let's continue to pray! It is prayer that changes things. In Prayer we acknowledge our need of God. And, in prayer, we engage in the REAL work of "Your Kingdom Come" kind of living.
