Enduring The Storm
You've probably heard the saying, "Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell your storm how big your God is". That's nice, but I think it's incomplete. I'd like to add two more lines to it: "Tell God how much bigger than the storm He is, and tell yourself too!" Yeah, I know it doesn't have quite the same ring to it as the other saying, but these two reminders are just as important, if not more so. How often do you remind God that He is bigger than your storm and has it all under control? God certainly doesn't need you to remind Him, but when we do, that's called WORSHIP. It's literally what we do every time we put on worship music or sing corporately in church services. As we praise Him for His greatness, we are also reminding ourselves that He's got this, whatever "this" is in our lives. This week at Friendship, we'll talk about "Enduring the Storm", another absolutely necessary step in running the race of discipleship. Things won't be easy, and storms will come, but God will carry us through them even when we have no idea what we're doing, as long as our hearts are set on seeking Him. If you are in a storm now, have been, or will be at some point in the future (Hint: that includes EVERYBODY), then you definitely don't want to miss this weekend's message!
