Weekly message straight from Pastor Dickie Spargo to you!

Is your life overflowing? If you’re like most people, it may be overflowing, but not with goodness. So many people have overbooked their calendars, overspent their money, overdrawn their credit, overloaded their emotions, overworked their bodies, overcrowded their days and overvalued the approval of others. As a result, they wind up overstressed, overanxious and overwhelmed – and they’re over it! They are far from experiencing the goodness of God.

Sometimes we need God to shake up our lives.

It’s particularly true when we find ourselves locked up in prisons of our own making, like a habit we can’t escape or a dead-end relationship that’s keeping us from God’s best or fear that keeps us from taking an important step in life.

When your world is falling apart, it’s so easy to focus on the pain, the problems, the pressure, and the difficulties. It’s the natural response. But the biblical response is to turn your focus to God’s love.

God is always ready to give you another chance. That’s a bedrock piece of Christianity. We’ve all been irresponsible. We’ve all messed up. The Bible tells us, “Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins” (Ecclesiastes 7:20).

Every farmer knows that what you sow in one season, you will reap in another season. You plant in the spring, and you harvest in the fall.

The way you respond to someone or to a situation right now is definitely going to affect your future. If you respond correctly in a season of life and you do the right thing, even when you don’t feel like it, it pays great dividends in the future.
