Yesterday I talked about how fatigue is the best friend of discouragement. There are some other elements to the story found in Nehemiah chapter 4 and to our lives that can contribute to discouragement. Verse 10 says, "Meanwhile, the people in Judah said, "The strength of the laborers is giving out, and there is so much rubble that we cannot rebuild the wall." I guess you could say that they were in some rubble trouble. They were frustrated! They looked at what they were trying to accomplish and all that they could see was the rubble that was keeping them from fulfilling their dream. Many times we look at our lives all we see are mountains of rubble. We see mountains of unfinished tasks and misplaced priorities that cause intense frustration! These things ultimately steal our courage to live out God's purposes through our lives. Maybe it is time to take out the trash today? Every thursday morning I take out the trash. It only takes a few moments & it causes everything to smell so much better! Get rid of the waste that is in your life today. Stop doing everything. Stop going out every night. Stop saying yes to everything. Stop trying to please everyone! Take the unnecessary things out of your life & get out of rubble trouble today! Put God first in your life and daily agenda by allowing His Spirit to guide you in your choices and commitments. Take out the trash today & let the aroma of your life change today!

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
