Sunday Highlights – Flood Style
We were literally washed out today from having regular services. The flooding here in Nashville is like nothing I’ve ever seen before.
Please be in prayer for this city. There is much help and healing needed in the coming days and weeks.
If you or someone you know has been affected by the flooding and needs help, please email details to email@example.com. We are rallying teams and putting plans together to respond.
Right now there are two immediate ways that you can help:
- A team of volunteers will be meeting at our Bellevue Campus at 10AM Monday morning to go out and begin helping whereever we can in the community. Please join us if you can.
- We have set up a Flood Relief Fund on our website. All proceeds will go directly to those affected by the flood waters in middle TN. You can DONATE HERE.
Thank you for your continued prayers and concern!
We opted to broadcast our services online this morning. My notes from the message are below:
“The Wall” by Pete Wilson
The wall – the place where you realize you don’t have control of your life
God loves us enough that he’s willing to strip us of anything that keeps us from him.
The wall is the place where we relinquish what we cling to for our identity.
Job did not sin, nor did he blame God.
For some of us God’s gift has taken the place of God. In other words – idolatry.
Idolatry is simply taking something other than God and making it our ultimate.
No matter how hard you try in life things will never be quite the way you think they should be.
If you have faith, you will always be susceptible to doubt.
Being a christian doesn’t mean we know how to respond to everything that happens. It doesn’t mean we have all the answers.
The reality is we often have more questions than answers. The reality is that even though we believe we also doubt.
Job reminds us that how we respond shattered dreams really matters.
Can we worship God even when He’s not showing up like we want Him to?
Can you still trust Him? Can you still believe that He has all things in His hands?
