“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.” Psalm 31:24
Imagine for just a few seconds that you live in a perfect world. You’ve cracked the code. You’ve been magically transported to a reality where you’ve figured out the perfect amount of sleep you need, how many carbs to eat (or avoid), and you have 1.5 million followers on Instagram.
Cortez and his men sailed from Spain and landed on the coast of Mexico in 1519. Initially the crew was awed by the beautiful land, but after months of hard work and little to show for it, their excitement turned to restlessness and revolt.
They wanted to abandon this New World and return home to their old one. Murmurings of mutiny were on everyone’s lips. Captain Cortez knew from the high level of discontent that the men would soon break ranks and leave. They would only work to tame the New World if it was their only hope of survival.
Welcome to Day 27 of the 30 Day Challenge!
Today is our final grace day. If you missed a day this week you can go back and catch up, or you revisit your favorite challenge of the week!
Welcome to Day 26 of the 30 Day Challenge! We hope that listening to the Positive Difference has made a positive difference to the start of 2018 for your and your family.
We are so excited about the opening of Arkansas Children’s Hospital Northwest in Springdale. We know it will be a place of hope and healing for families right here in our community and from out of town.
Currently, the Children's Hospital is working on stocking The Family House. It’s a place where patient families can do laundry, and it’s also where patient family “get together” will take place.
If you stopped by the KLRC Studios, you likely would find the little figurines pictured above. They were a gift, a reminder that just like Peter, going all in means stepping out of "the boat" and into a trust adventure with Jesus.
Monday, we'll share a new Needtobreathe song, and they say it like this:
I feel like people don’t respond to RSVP's as much anymore. People have a hard time saying, "Yes, I will be there."
Honestly, that person is me. Life can be so crazy that sometimes making a commitment to be at a particular event can make me nervous. What if something else came up that I would rather do?
Welcome to day 23 of the 30 Day Challenge! Today your challenge is to pray for local churches and ministries.
Take a few minutes to pray for your church staff, for other churches in our community, and for the non-profits and ministries that serve our community.
"I’m going all in.”
It’s a powerful, declarative statement-an act of dedicating 100% of myself to an action or plan. It’s a phrase I say about something I believe to be my only true option. At its foundation, for me, going “all in” looks like faith.
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
Honestly, I get hung up on that second command sometimes – not leaning on my own understanding.
