MOVING FORWARD —>>> 30 Day Fast From Negative Thinking

This past weekend I adapted a message from Pastor Rick Warren for the launch of our new series called, Moving Forward!  Below are 5 things that are true about your life whenever you make the decision to follow Jesus.  When you confess Jesus as Lord of your life, you move from being God's creation to God's child and all things become new.  Consider these thoughts and scriptures below...
