Do you have too many problems?

It’s been said, “There are no big problems. There are just lots of little problems.” But in 2006, we had a lot of big problems. Two of my daughters were graduating (high school and college), one of my sons was going to war in Iraq and later was shot by a sniper, and my mom died suddenly. All in one year.

I’m sure just telling you of my problems, causes you to realize all your problems. I heard someone say, “Never tell anyone your problems. 20% don’t care and the other 80% are glad you have them.”  I don’t know about that, but I know when you have one problem it just seems to zap the strength out of your day. 

But what can you do? The genius, Albert Einstein, said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” We need a new perspective.

This Sunday, July 12, I will continue our summer sermon series called Straight Talk from Luke 6. Jesus gives simple, honest and direct communication about vital topics. This week I will share “Straight Talk about Problems.”

In Luke 6:17-26 Jesus is in the middle of people with big problems. Not only did Jesus perform some miracles to remove problems, He also gave a better perspective on problems.

  • No problem is too big for God. He can remove every problem you have. Nothing is too hard for God.
  • Problems become blessings in God’s hands. If God chooses not to remove your problems, He wants you to see the blessing in those problems. 

Join me this Sunday as we discover the straight talk about problems. Not only will it help you ask God to remove your problems, it will also remind you to trust that your problems will soon become blessings. You just need to trust God enough to wait on His blessing.

We will continue to have church services in our building at 9:00 am or 10:30 am. For more information about our reconnecting guidelines, visit RECONNECT. You can also watch our pre-recorded service with the same message on Facebook Live or YouTube Live on Sunday at 9:00 am or 10:30 am.

Join me this Sunday.
