How To Deal With A Dark, Rainy, Cold & All Around Cruddy day.


Unfortunately, everyday isn't like the picture of my son & his buddy above. Fun, exciting, warm!!! How do you deal with a dark, rainy, cold & all around cruddy day. Today is one of those kind of days. You know, the kind where you call out of work sick and crawl up beside a warm fireplace with an endless flow of hot chocolate. Sounds good doesn't it. What do you do when you can't call off work, you have no fireplace and are out of hot chocolate. So many times we allow the weather, the news or our circumstances to dictate our feelings. We just have bad days because we feel a certain way. Today I was reading the Psalms during my devotional time. One particular portion stuck out to me that I think will help us deal with our emerging emotions on days or in times like these.

Psalm 5:11-12, "But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because you defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as a shield."

I challenge you, regardless of your current circumstances, to make a decision to be joyful in who God is and to be thankful for his incredible favor over your life. His favor surrounds you today and remember that He defends you! Put your trust in Him and rejoice today. Go ahead, take the leap& give a shout of praise to God and let His joy flood your soul. It's a lot better than hot chocolate and it will last you all day long!

Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick

The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is, "GREATER," based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12, "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."   2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called, "Decade Of Destiny."  Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a campus in Centr…
