So You've Messed Up Since Last Sunday.

Last week you said a prayer, made a commitment and took action to change your life.  Since then, you blew it.  You fell back to your old ways.  You've sinned - AGAIN!  Well, let's review a few things that I think will help you.

THIS IS A PROCESS - not an event.  In our popcorn, microwave, internet speed world.  We assume that what is going to happen to us, is going to happen quickly.  Nope!   Never has and never will.  This is going to take some time.

THE GOAL ISN'T PERFECTION!  God knows that you are going to be making some mistakes along the way.  The point is to allow Him into your life so that A) He can start healing your life now and B) He can start changing your life so you don't have to live in the shadow of your mistakes from now on.

GOD DOESN'T OWN A TRASHCAN  He hasn't nor will He ever throw you away.  All that stuff you are hearing in your head isn't from God.

LET GOD HAVE A "FAIR" CHANCE.  Some people tell God how to do His job.  That isn't fair.  We all know that.  You have to let God have a fair opportunity to speak into your life and do something that will change your future.  A church service or two isn't enough.  There is more!!

TALK TO SOMEONE WHO HAS "BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT".  Where are they you ask?  They are at church!  The people who know about what you are going through stand ready to help you now!  All you have to do is give them permission to be a part of your life.

DON'T GIVE UP!  Quitting is exactly what Satan whats you to do.  Quitting robs you of your hope and future.

So what are you going to do now?    Go to church tomorrow.  If you never have been to church two times in a row - don't panic.  The roof will not cave in.
