DON’T WASTE YOUR QUARANTINE

DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUT OUR LIVE EVENTS + THINGS TO DO

We never really know how we’ll respond to change until it knocks on our doors – diverting things that had our attention and a chance to look at what’s inside of us – asking to reveal what we’re made of. Life looks different than we thought it would and to be honest, it brings us back to the daily reality that we were never in control in the first place. In times like these, these are the life experiences that I see God so brightly in, the moments unordinary to our typical daily life that you’ll remember years from now. This week will you say “hello” to a wildly thankful heart in awe that God is doing something special during these unique and unusual times?

This month….

TENDING YOUR HEART

How are you? No, really, how are you? Because this COVID-19 business is not only throwing our world into disorder, but our hearts as well. There are a lot of unpleasant things suddenly forcing their way onto our now empty spaces. Our Father gives us permission to feel what we feel, and to bring those feelings to Him as an act of worship. Wondering how to encounter God in your negative emotions? Read below:
“Watch over your heart with all diligence for from it flows the springs of life.”
Proverbs 4:23

ASK
When you lack peace or feel a negative emotion, ask God, “What is really going on?”
RECOGNIZE
Listen for God to speak about what is going on in your heart.
RENOUNCE/REPENT
Turn away from any lie, sin or unforgiveness. Renounce the lie, repent and receive forgiveness.
RECEIVE
Ask God what truth He wants to speak and give you to fill your heart.
REJOICE
Thank God for what He has spoken and given to you. Declare the truth and who He says you are!
