SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE…!? - 1)

main image

It’s probably fair to say that LIFE doesn’t always go the way you expect – so you often Pray for God’s Help and Guidance in those moments! (However…) Sometimes in those moments of Prayer- it may seem like even though you Pray with Faith- God still doesn’t do what you’ve asked Him to do! (It’s like…) You Seek Him… but don’t Feel His Presence! (Or…) YOU Go Through Pain… but your Cries for Relief seem to go Unanswered! (And…) Those Moments are REAL/HARD/PAINFUL! (So…) We’re gonna take the Next Three Weeks and take a closer look at WHAT WE CAN DO in Those Moments of Life"WHEN GOD DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!" (And…) We're gonna talk about some things that we might just ExperienceIf/When we can continually learn HOW to Surrender Our Lives to God's Providential Plans! Don’t Miss This Series!

 

Sunday Snapshot… (1) When God Seems INATTENTIVE!

 

Just because God is sometimes SILENT... it doesn't mean that He's ABSENT!

 

You don't always have to UNDERSTAND GOD’S PLAN to TRUST HIS PURPOSE!

 

We shouldn't interpret the GOODNESS OF GOD through OUR CIRCUMSTANCES… we should interpret OUR CIRCUMSTANCES through the GOODNESS OF GOD!

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (MY BIG FAT MOUTH - 4)

main image

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we ALL could really use some better Understanding in Knowing that there is some Serious Power in the WORDS that WE SPEAK! (For Example…) Our WORDS have the Power to Give Life… but our WORDS also have the Power to Take Life! (Jesus once said…) "Out of the overflow of the heart - the MOUTH SPEAKS!” -- So we’ve been taking the past few weeks here at COC to talk a little more about the WORDS we often Speak - and then attempting to get a little better in our own lives with a few of those areas… in a Series we’ve called MY BIG FAT MOUTH! We’re heading into our Last Week this week here at COCDon’t Miss It! (And…) Bring A Friend Too!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (4) GOSSIPING

 

Proverbs 6:16-19… There are Six Things the Lord Hates – no… Seven Things He DETESTS: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, a FALSE WITNESS WHO POURS OUT LIES… a PERSON WHO SOWS DISCORD IN A FAMILY!

 

Rick Warren… “GOSSIP is when we’re talking about Something with SomebodyWHO'S NEITHERPart of the Problem or Part of the Solution!”

 

How to Overcome the SIN of GOSSIP... (In Your Conversations)

1. ARE YOU BEING HELPFUL OR HURTFUL?

2. ARE YOU MAKING PRIVATE MATTERS PUBLIC?

3. ARE YOU PERMITTING OTHERS TO GOSSIP?

 

Not only is it WRONG to SPEAK the GOSSIP… it’s also WRONG to LISTEN to the GOSSIP! (Because...) WHAT YOU PERMIT… YOU PROMOTE!
