“Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up”. Galatians 6:9 NIrV
Keep going because God knows the end of the story.
Play a game by telling your kids to think of a scale from 1-10. One being the easiest and 10 the absolute hardest.Think of things that require determination and rate that on the scale. For example, learning a new instrument is a level 6 or not eating candy for a day is level 2. Afterwards, ask them what is something they are determined to finish by the end of the school year or summer.
Deciding it’s worth it to finish what you

Headline: The Comparison Trap
Focus Scripture: 1 Peter 4:10-11
Main Point: social Media has the potential to be a great source of inspiration, connection, and general enjoyment. It also, has the potential be a source of great disdain, insecurity, and doubt. As with most things in this world there is a way to use it that can enhance our lives – and there is a way to use it that will cause us to go against God’s will for our lives. Many people unknowingly fall into the second category. We sometimes go on our social media and end up leaving feeling drained and that is not God’s will for our lives. What happens is we log on and see how well others are doing and we begin to compare where we are to where we see someone else is. We start to feel less than, and insecure about our journey because someone else’s simply “looks” better. But the bible tells us we ought to do otherwise. Our text shows us 2 things. The first is that, the comparison trap is NOT new, it simply looks different. The second is that the answer - the way to combat the trap – is to remind ourselves that we are who we are ON PURPOSE. God created each of us with a very specific “win” in mind. And as soon as e move from the competition plane (which causes us to compare ourselves with others) and move into the creativity plane we can begin to tap into our unique gifts and excel the way God intended us to!
1. What do you believe makes you, you?
a. What are your gifts?
b. What do you enjoy doing?
c. Where do you enjoy going?
2. How do you think God can use your gifts and your passions to impact your
community, and/or those around you?
3. What is one thing you can do today that will allow you to develop your gifts?
a. If it’s basketball – hit the court!
b. If it’s writing pick up a pen and get to it!
c. What ever it is, find a way to develop it today!
4. What unique gifts do you see in your friends and family members?
5. How can you speak life, and encourage them to lean into their unique gifts as well?

Topic: There is an expiration date
Scripture: Psalm 30 Verse 6
Synopsis: Life won’t always be a flowery bed of ease. There were be undesirable circumstances in our lives that we will not enjoy. Those times can serve as a premise for doubt and anger to harbor in our spirits. Our human nature can lead us to the desire to quit. However, we cannot quit when life is not a flowery bed of ease. Circumstances can seem dark and dreary but we need to know that they must endure. Even though they must endure, we can rest assure that there is an expiration date. On the other side of our problems, there is undoubtable promise. The Bible does state that weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning. We can rest on that promise. There is an assurance that joy will come and life will get better. Don’t give up! There is an expiration date coming soon

Scripture: Psalm 9: 1-2 NIV
In the course of our faith relationship with God, there will be many opportunities for us to choose to praise God. Notice I said CHOOSE. At times life’s circumstances can cause us to drift away from a place or posture of praise. The Psalmist writes, “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart”. This suggests that he made a decision- a choice to thank God with “all his heart”. The text doesn’t say this praise is being rendered at a time when things are going well; instead the heading for these verses say “to the tune of “Death of the Son”. How in a time like that or in a time like this pandemic can you and I praise God with all our heart? When things seem to be going awry and we may be lacking resources or quality relationships. Even in times like these, you and I can CHOOSE to "give thanks to God... because He’s more than enough and He knows what we need"! You and I can decide today and everyday to give thanks to God by recounting the wonderful deeds and by being glad and rejoicing in God who is worthy of our praise. In the process of giving thanks to God, you and I share a testimony of God’s goodness and grace and mercy.
1. How will you make your praise audible this week?
2. Who will you share your praise with this week?
3. In what ways will you be intentional to recall and recount the blessings of God in your life?
“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.
