November 2016

Before You Have Your Turkey…

There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for!”

Can you believe it’s that time of the year again?

It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming 2016, and now, we’re getting ready for turkey, trimmings, and all the good tidings that come with the Holiday season.

But before you get ready to gather around the table today, why not spend a few moments reflecting on all God has done for you this year?

1 Thessalonians 5:18 reminds us to “be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

So while the year may not have gone exactly how you expected, I’m sure you still have many reasons to give thanks.

When You’re Afraid to Make A Decision

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.” Psalm 34: 23-24 

“Thank you for getting back to us. We will need your final answer by 10am EST on Monday. Have a great weekend.”

Have a great weekend?

With only 72 hours to figure out my next move, I knew my weekend would be anything but great. Faced with what would be a life altering decision, I immediately began to panic:

Should I take this opportunity?

Was this God answering my prayer? Maybe it’s the enemy trying to set me up for disaster?

What if I take this chance and things don’t work out, then what?

I knew I couldn’t move forward without praying. But every time I tried to pray, it felt like God was busy responding to someone else’s requests.
