Weekly message straight from Pastor Dickie Spargo to you!

Do you show people grace?

It’s what God wants us to do, but it’s not always easy to do because we are so often focused on ourselves.

It’s easier sometimes to be selfish instead of gracious.

Be patient with God and with yourself.

One of life’s frustrations is that God’s timetable is rarely the same as ours. We are often in a hurry when God isn’t. You may feel frustrated with the seemingly slow progress you’re making in life.

Remember that God is never in a hurry, but he is always on time. He will use your entire lifetime to prepare you for your role in eternity.

You can learn a lot by looking at your past.

You’ve heard the saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” That’s true — but it’s only part of the story. You can’t heal the most pervasive, costly wounds in your life by focusing only on your past. To defeat those giants, you’ll have to look ahead.

The seasons of life include both good and bad times. Life is full of contrasts. We go through mountains, and we go through valleys. We go through successes, and we go through failures. We have wins, and we have losses.

In weather, there are four seasons. But in your life, there are dozens of different seasons.

If you want to succeed in life, you must learn how to master your moods.

When you have emotion that isn’t getting you where you want to go, you’ve got two options: You either change it, or you channel it.

Sometimes you need to change what you’re feeling.
