life is a series of choices

By August 30, 2012Church

Life is a series of choices.

For example, I choose to drink coffee on a daily basis.  Even more so, I choose to not put cream or sugar in my coffee.  Until recently, I also chose to not drink coffee with ice in it (I was convinced that God himself disliked cold coffee – a total misinterpretation of the Old Testament).

Your life is a series of choices, too.

Every day you choose what to eat, what to wear, whether to work out or sleep in.  You choose how to spend your time – watching television, reading a book, or doing crossword puzzles.

You choose the words you use.  You choose your tone of voice.  You choose to pray or not to pray.

The question is not will you make a choice but will you make the right choice?  And will you continue to make the right choice again and again?

Hurts, hang-ups, and habits.

Every one of us has something (or someone) that has hurt us.  We have hang-ups about all kinds of things.  Unfortunately, we’ve also developed unhealthy habits along the way.

Starting October 6 and 7, we will be launching an all-church initiative called “Life’s Healing Choices.”  This forty-day campaign focuses on developing the ability to make good choices – healthy, godly choices that move us in the right direction.

As John Baker writes, “Happiness is possible – but you’ve got to choose it.”

Life’s Healing Choices” identifies eight choices that influence the quality of our lives, our relationships, and even our faith.  But more than identifying them, it is designed to help you make the right choice.

During the forty-day experience, we will be preaching on each of the eight choices, providing practical wisdom from the Bible.  We will also be launching small groups that will work their way through the “Life’s Healing Choices” material in a friendly, safe environment.  Our entire church will be working through this together.

We believe you will see a tremendous return on investment if you will invest the time and energy into joining us each weekend and participating in a small group.

Ultimately, it’s your choice.
