Headline: Love the Lord
Focus Scriptures: Psalm 116
Main Point: This Psalm is truly a Psalm of gratitude. It lays down the countless ways our God has the capacity to rescue us. It is so important – now more than ever – to be reminded of what our God can save us from. God has the power to save us from our tears, our mistakes, and even the darkest of seasons. Sometimes we can forget that God really is our Father and it is out of His love for us that he would never leave us alone. He is only a prayer away. That is why this Psalm is so powerful – it is the power of gratitude.
1. Write down a few of the ways God has saved you in the past.
a. Helped you with a test, solved an argument, gave you grace with your parents.
2. Take some time today, to simply thank God for the ways he saved you.
3. Hold on to what you’ve written as a reminder of God’s love for you & as a reminder that
God will ALWAYS come through for you.

Title-Take Out the Trash
Text-Ephesians 4 Verses 31-32
Synopsis- All of us in life are guilty of holding bitterness, anger, and rage in our spirit. There are situations in life that have contributed to one being bitter and angry. However, we cannot allow such things to have residence in our spirits. If we do, such things can contaminate us and lead to poor quality of life. It is essential to de-clutter our spirits and prevent the stench that spiritual toxins cause. All in All, and we must take out the trash and allow a fresh fragrance to permeate our lives.
What have we been holding on to in this season?
How has holding grudges prevented you from moving forward?
How do you think life can be post-bitterness?

“God Will Sustain Us"
In our text, we find God speaking to the children of Israel with the promise that He will sustain them. Through Isaiah, God tells them who they are in the lineage of faith to remind them of who they’ve come from. How often do you pause to reflect on your faith legacy? When you and I remember from who and where we’ve come, we are grounded in a way that enables us to trust in the keeping power of God. As we consider God’s faithful presence and protection in the lives of those before us, we acknowledge that God is still able to show up in those ways for us. In these verses, God speaks to us in a conversational tone about how we’ve been held since birth and carried from birth to old age-even when our hair grays. Beloved, God intends that you and I remember that He’s been the same God from our beginning- from conception and birth to our old age. God says, “I am He, I am He who will sustain you, carry you, and rescue you.” Here God speaks in the future tense- I will… Whatever you and I face, we can rest assured that God is with us and will sustain us, carry us, and rescue us.
1. How will you reflect on the lineage of faith that proves God’s sustaining and keeping power?
2. Who can you remind this week of God’s ability and desire to sustain us?
“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
It’s Umbrella Time:
1. How can you prove whether it is or is not judgement?
2. Does God have to send trouble in order to use trouble?
3. Why does God send judgement in scripture?
4. The question is not is this the judgement of God, the question should be is there a case for the judgement of God in 2020.
As the house shifts, everyone who is connected to the house needs to be ready to shift.
Repent – Is not a negative, it is the first step to the positive.
