Crazy Train

I was recently challenged with this assignment: think the thoughts you would think if you believed God’s promises completely. You would think it would be easy to meditate on that, perhaps there are even people out there that naturally truly believe God’s promises, but I have talked to too many people who doubt their worthiness, that doubt God’s love, who doubt their ability to do anything through Him who gives them strength, so I know I am not alone in questioning God’s promises for me. In order to wrap my head around, to retrain that crazy brain of mine, I turn to scripture. So let’s test it…

I can believe God wants His church to succeed in reaching lost people.

Ephesians 5:29-33 “No one abuses his own body, does he? No, he feeds and pampers it. That is how Christ treats us,the church, since we are part of his body.

Unfortunately, there are too many of us that actually do abuse our bodies. We indulge in unhealthy habits, gorging ourselves with food, booze, drugs, forgetting that our bodies were given to us by God, therefore we should be wise in taking care of it. If we can’t take care of ourselves, how are we to take care of His church? This is why it is so important to remain healthy. To rest, eat well, live well and have time to balance family, work and play in order to be useful to the greater good of mankind. Jesus pampers His bride as should we.

Evergreen is having a Loco Mojo Christmas party on December 23rd at 7pm! Everyone is invited to come and bring everyone you know! Because at Evergreen we believe this second promise…

I can believe I have a new life in Christ.

“Our firm decision is to work from this focused center: One man died for everyone. That puts everyone in the same boat. He included everyone in his death so that everyone could also be included in his life,a resurrection life, a far better life than people ever lived on their own.” -2 Corinthians 5:15 msg

No matter what stress the holidays bring you, no matter how crazy the family is or how broke you are, believe in the promises God has for you. Study the bible, it is riddled with examples. Pay attention and you will be able to retrain the brain.

Psalm 136:23-26
“God remembered us when we were down.
His love never quits.
Rescued us from the trampling boot.
His love never quits.
Takes care of everyone in time of need.
His love never quits.
Thank god who did it all.
His love never quits.”
