Spiritual Sunday – 1/30/11
Wow church was amazing again. I can’t say enough to explain how thankful we have found Faith Church. As I mentioned last week we started a series called A Radical Life Rooted in God’s Love. Last week we heard about “Radical Gratitude” this week it was “Ever Believer is a Minister”. It really hit home there is so many times we can minister to people by just being truly grateful for things in your life, even when you are not grateful for the situation or the problem in your life. This really spoke to me since lately both Mike and I have situations where we haven’t been very grateful. Well we decided to change our attitude about those things. We can minister to others and show that no mater what there is good even when the situation is not.
Here are a few scriptures that remind us of that.
“Do everything without complaining or arguing. You will become blameless and pure. It’ll show you’re a child of God without fault. He says you’ll be faultless if you do that. In a crooked and depraved generation that is cynical and sarcastic and critical, in which you shine like stars in the universe.” – Philippians 2:14-15
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” – Ephesians 4:29
“Even though the fig trees have no fruit and no grapes are growing on the vine, and even through the olive crop failed and even though the fields produce no grain, and even though the sheep are all dying and the cattle stalls are empty even though all of this is happening I will still, I will still, I will still be joyful and glad.” – Habakkuk 3:17-18
I can only hope that I can that joyful and glad everyday no matter the situation. Please remember life is so much better to think of it half full no matter if you like the situation you are in.
