Good Afternoon Harvesters, UUUgggghhhh...caught myself several times this week with life-taking words to myself. Things like, "Bonehead, What are you doing?, I can't believe I could be so dumb..." I know, I know doing exactly what I shared with you what were not supposed to do. I have confessed, how about you? What has flowed from your tongue either to others or yourself? Life-giving or life-taking? I hope life-g
Good Morning Harvesters, I know, I know, crazy thought isn't it? Most of us do not think of ourselves that way. Most of us are trying to make ends meet and hopefully have some left over to take a vacation, save for retirement or just even do something special at holiday times. I said Sunday that the Good News is You are Rich and the Bad News is You are Rich. Ecclesiastes 5:19 tells us, “Moreover, when God gives som
Good Morning Harvesters, Over the last four weeks we have asked God for one word and a verse to go with along with it that can help us this month past month and guide us to the end of this year. Week 2 we came to realize that in order to change our thoughts we have to capture destructive thoughts and then fixing our mind on spiritual things. We asked God to add to our word and verse a thought that helps to tie them together.
Good Afternoon Harvesters, Proverbs 23:7 reminds us, "As he thinks in his heart, so is he..." Your life will always move in the direction of your strongest thoughts. As a person thinks in their heart, so often times they become. So how was your thought audit on Sunday? How is thought audit going this week? I hope you took time Sunday or this week to apply Romans 12:2, "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this worl
Good Morning Harvest Church Family, John Wooden, one of the greatest college basketball coaches of all-time said, "It's the little things that are vital. Little things make the big things happen." If you want major outcomes in your life, then it starts with the little things, the little changes that help reach and see the big changes in your life. Paul said in Philippians 3:13, "...But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and s
Good Afternoon Harvest Church Family, Sunday we looked at how Jonah struggled with not getting his way and what he thought should and hoped would happen to the Ninevites. Through his obedience to God, he proclaimed to the people, that God would destroy them unless they repented and gave up their evilness. What he hoped was that they would reject God and then would be destroyed. Instead, all
Good Afternoon Harvest Church Family, We are in week two of our series on Jonah the Prophet on the Run. We have examined over the course of the past two weeks that we often react much the same way Jonah had done. When God asked Him to do something difficult, instead of being obedient he tried to run as far away from God as possible. God had to send a storm and for him to be thrown overboard and swallowed by a great fish before he cam
Good Evening Harvest Church Family, As we prepare for this weekend I want to encourage you to reread Chapter 1 & 2 of Habakkuk. It will help to set the stage for this week's message. A message to close out this series. Last week was great and crazy all at the same time. Vacation Bible School was a great time of working together to share the message the Jesus has the power to pull us through and we must TRUST JESUS!
Good Afternoon Harvest Church Family, Sunday we dug into looking at when we are in the midst of the "crisis of belief" what do we do. How do we begin to move or what are we supposed to do? Habakkuk 2:1-3, tell us, “I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint. Then the LORD replied: "W
Good Morning Harvest Church Family, Sunday we began a new series on 'The Prophet Habakkuk'. We found out that Habakkuk lived in a time of great turmoil, before the Israelites were taken into captivity. In the midst of his own nation’s faithlessness and rebellion to God’s Word, he saw other nations rising up that would challenge Israel. He saw the commonplace violence and destruction all around him. It seemed like God
