Monday Mayhem

Yesterday, at Evergreen, Pastor Seth did an extraordinary job of showing the Church exactly how and why mayhem comes into our lives and destroys our promise of a fruitful existence. If we think we can out-perform (I’ll just work harder to get out of debt!) or out-religion it (I’ll serve more instead of pray more) than we may just be a picture of a person who can’t TRUST anyone else’s hands but their own in the middle of mayhem. I LOVE the teachable moments when I actually get to listen and take away so I can apply it!
One of the scriptures Pastor Seth showcased was Jeremiah 17:14. The message version explains it like this, “God, pick up the pieces. Put me back together again. You are my praise!” Only Jesus can save us from our self-created mayhem. The most important take away from the weekend experience was that WE ALL need to come to the foot of the cross, CONTINUALLY, and we will be healed. If we can recognize and accept our faults and then move beyond them into establishing a relationship with God in which we learn how to change our lives, our lives will be victorious.
Take a moment right now and place your life in His hands. Get real. Trust. Restoration is a process for all of us, day by day, one day at a time. This is what it means to be saved.
