Too Busy




If you are overly busy, you may be living a fake life.  What are you running from?

Limits





Proper adjustment in life can be achieved only on the basis of acceptance of one’s own finiteness…We need not fear failing. Only God never fails and never makes a mistake…Such attempts to build security by our own efforts will always lead to increased anxiety…We are not, cannot be, and need not be God. God does not expect us to be God. Satisfaction and happiness lie in wait for us if we accept this fact; disappointment and frustration if we do not.

Different



We do not want to accumulate information and become smarter. We want to know God's word and become different.

A Different Plan





Most of us feel outnumbered and outgunned by our current situation. We want to be freed from our problems so that we can get on with our pleasures. But God has a different plan. He wants our problems to serve as the context for knowing him and living out the story he invites us to write for his glory. This means the present is not meant primarily to be resolved, or even learned from, but to be written in a way that allows us to reveal God to others and to let him reveal himself to us.
