Your life is a gift waiting to happen!
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

Understand this about you!
-You have been created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27)
- God breathed the breath His life into you (Genesis 2:7)
-God formed you from the beginning (Jer. 1:5) & you are fearfully & wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)

“God knew- what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the SAME lines - as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. - We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him.” Romans 8:29 (MSG)

We all struggle with...
The me I don’t want to be
The me I pretend to be
The me I think that I should be
The me that other people want me to be
The me that I’m afraid God wants me to be
The me that fails to be
The me that I am meant to be


1 Samuel 16 & 17- The Story of David & Goliath

1. Understand that you are called by God.
Instead of being ruled by the circumstances of your birth or the limitations of your background, you can move forward into God’s amazing plan for your life. 1 Samuel 16:1-13 God doesn't look at the outward appearance, He looks at our hearts.
2. Know that daily obedience is the path to your destiny.
The greatest concern in your life should be whether or not you’re becoming what God has called you to be each day!
1 Samuel 17:12-32- It is obedience to God in the seemingly mundane things of life that position us for God's purposes!
3. Remember the Holy Spirit has gifted & empowered you for the purposes of God.
Set aside other peoples expectations & simply be who God has already called you to be! 1 Samuel 17:32-51- Every Goliath that you won’t conquer in your life will live to terrorize you, your friends & future generations after you. Face your greatest fears with great faith!

“Spiritual greatness has nothing to do with being greater than others. It has everything to do with being as great as each of us can be.” Henry Nouwen

 “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Eph. 2:10
"For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers...” Acts 13:36 (NLT)

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
