Distraction of the Day:

I’m actually a little nervous for the distraction of the day. But at the end of this show I’m going to show Amy a personally selected, tirelessly researched conglomeration of horribly awkward hugs...and my winning picture of the most awkward hug could get me in trouble. So I went ahead and found a video that will make everything ok again.

What you tell yourself matters. Me and Amy struggle with this one. If your mind is full of negatives your actions will be filled with negatives. Take those negative messages and turn them into positives.
I’ll never succeed = can’t wait to see how God comes through

I hate myself = I am worthy and deserve to be honored

Your negative self talk probably comes from how your parents spoke to you

Quieting negative self-talk won’t happen overnight.  There's not a magic...

Relentless Community - a special sermon from South Africa

  • Hebrews 10:23-25 “23 Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. 24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”
  • Live your life each day with a purpose, to stir one another to acts of love and good works.
  • Why do you wake up each day? If you don’t ask yourself this question, you are purposeless which is like lifelessness.
  • Community isn’t a story, it’s an experience and filled with story after story after story. It’s why I came here for my surgery.
    • I knew I would be
      • Loved
      • Not judged
      • Encouraged
      • Filled with hope
  • God’s plan for your life is to wake up each day and…
    • Choose hope (v23)
      • Because he is a promise keeper, and there is nothing we need to fear
      • But this isn’t the kind of hope...

Relentless Grace - a special sermon from South Africa

    1. Relentless Grace
      1. No matter how far you run away or how disobedient you are, God still loves you and bathes you with His unending grace
      2. Phillip Holmes wrote, “He’s not ignorant of all the ways we’ve sinned against him. He knows everything we’ve ever done and is able to stomach it. His knowledge of who we really are will never hinder his love for us. He’s even aware of the evil behind our righteous deeds. The intimacy by which the Lord knows us but is able to lovingly embrace us as his children is supernatural. God’s grace is mind-blowing. Every time I think of this reality, I’m brought to tears because I serve a God whose love and grace baffle me.” https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/gods-grace-is-mind-blowing
      3. I blatantly rejected the voice of the Holy Spirit
        1. Heaviest - 138 kilograms
        2. I’ve lost 18 kilograms in three weeks
        3. No pain, no recovery, no problems of any kind!
      4. Joel 2:12-14 'But there’s also this, it’s not...
