From the Pastor's Desk
We all deal with the revolving door of responsibilities and to-do's. But imagine when hearing the sound of the morning alarm, instead of groaning or slapping the snooze button, you awaken--mind, heart, and soul--to possibility. Something better. Something more. Imagine waking up each day fueled by a whisper: "This is the day." Ps. 118:24 declares, "This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."
We often connect following our dreams to self-oriented goals we want to accomplish. God wants us to live our dreams, but in a way that is meaningful--not just to become rich or famous or to look or feel good.
I am not saying this is easy to put into practice. But begin today to make a change. It doesn't have to be a grand gesture. There is always something you can do right now to improve yourself, to make an impact on someone or something else, or to create or enjoy a meaningful moment. It can be challenging to live with passion and stay motivated. This helps us to discover lasting meaning and joy.
Life isn't just about "one day." It's about this day. This is the day you can see what God sees. This is the day you can overcome a bad habit or character flaw. This is the day you can fight for what's right. This is the day you can change someone's life for the better. This is the day you can change your own life. You are the one! This is the place! Now is the time!
