Figure Out the Simple Stuff Ever had someone ruin a movie? It sucks. If you’re excited to go and see it, and you can’t wait to watch it, but someone else verbally vomits something along the lines of “they die in the end” and you kind of want to kill them. They killed the joy of the story. Sure, you knew something was going to happen. You knew where it was going to end up.…

Study Scripture When we want to know more about God and his plan for us, the best place to go is scripture. Often times, when we want to know what God has for us, we’ll read some books we bought online, listen to sermons online, ask friends, take surveys, read astrology, and do all kinds of other things. However, we often overlook the simplest and greatest answer to these…

We all want to know God’s plan for our life. Books are written about it. Sermons have been preached on it. People make it their career to help you find it. So what can we do to help ensure we’re moving towards God’s plans for our life? This week, we’ll be looking at some of the things that help us focus in on what God wants for our life.   Humility When it comes to…

Share Your Victory. When we win, it feels good! When we see something happen in our life and Jesus is making a difference, there is a sense of joy and accomplishment. I think we sometimes keep our victories (even our small ones) to ourselves. We make strides in life change and neglect to tell anyone about it. We see something awesome happen and don’t let anyone else…

Stick It Out. When things change, people quit. It just happens that way. Someone will notice something needs to be different. They’re honest about it and seek out advice. They make action towards doing something differently but at the end, when things get tough, they stop. Making real life change is hard. When habits are deep rooted, it’s not easy to move them back.…

We Go For It! I’ve learned on the days I want to go to the gym, I need to go immediately after work. If I go home, kick my shoes off and sit down, I’m not making it. I will find a million excuses for why I shouldn’t, when in reality it’s good for me and I need to go. When it comes to our faith, this is a number of people’s story. They know something should get…

What’s Your Next Step? Value Progress Some people are just happy where they are in their faith. You talk to them about church and they go. You ask them about prayer, and they pray. You ask them what they’re doing to get better, though, and they just don’t have any answer. It’s pretty common place in the church today for us to get complacent. We get to a point where we…

How do we get to our next steps? This week, let’s look at some things that hold us back when it comes to our next steps and what we can do to be better at them, no matter what next step it may be. Be Honest With Yourself. Sometimes we’re the biggest obstacle to our own growth. We don’t want to see, or we’re incapable of seeing the areas in which we need to get better, so…

Peace   When we believe God’s promises we find ourselves with less worry. Our plans become more purposeful and in line with what He has for us. Our hope is secure in His faithfulness. We stop wasting energy and emotion on backup plans and truly trust God. Finally, we find ourselves resting in a peace. One passage calls it a “peace beyond understanding.”   When…

No Backup Plans   When you believe God has promised you something, you don’t have a backup plan. When you know he will provide and he will be faithful, you do not need a plan B.   This is easy in some places. We don’t look for a backup plan when it comes to death and eternity cause we can’t do anything about that anyways. But what about God’s promise to provide…

Hope is Secure   I always come in and leave my keys in the same place. I put them on this hook thing right inside the door and they hang there until we leave. Our spare keys are there, a few key chains and a light/fan controller. I always know they are there. I don’t have to worry about it. I don’t have to think about it. It’s just there. And when I’m ready for my…
