Do you wake up sometimes and ask your self - is this it? Is this how life is supposed to feel?
I thought I would be more fulfilled, more content, happier. Do you feel like you are just waiting for life to start? For most of us, there is an empty spot inside - one that we often try to fill with junk.
There have been times in my life (and I still struggle with this) when I've tried to fill that hole in me with things that will never make me complete.
I have lived on the thoughts of : Once we do this, I'll be happy, once I get this, things will be good. I used to call it being driven and now I just call it being a misguided. There is something very devastating about never feeling content.
If you resonate with anything I've said here, then you are like me and need something larger than YOU to be in charge. Yes, this post is about having a relationship with God. Maybe that sentence aggravates you because you've had nothing but bad experiences at church. I've had those too. I grew up in church, but up until Jeff and I got married, 11 years ago, I'd never really had a relationship with God or lived my life as a Christian.
If you are tired of the way things are in your life, if you are ready to have realtionships with people that really care, if you are ready to do something other than SURFACE CHURCH, or if you're ready to try this church thing for the first time then here's my invitation to you:
Meet us tomorrow at Christ The Rock :
8:45 AM : I'll be waiting at the entrance
If you want to tell us you're coming ahead of time you can :
comment here or email us : firstname.lastname@example.org - I want to make sure we save enough seats for all of us.
If you've ever been to our website then you've heard our awesome Worship Leader Jeremy Horn. Jeremy is a national recording artist and has a new CD coming out soon! He'll be there tomorrow as well as our Pastor Chris Bennett. You'll love both of these guys and wont want to miss this service.
God is for everyone. It doesn't matter where you are in life, what you've done, what kind of relationship you've had or haven't had with HIM. Check out this video by Jeremy Cowart about A Portrait of Christ. It shows you that HE does not discriminate and welcomes you with open arms and He's ready and waiting.
HAPPY EASTER and we can't wait to see you tomorrow :)
