Summary: The up side even when we are down is that we are called and appointed by God.
Jesus has set us free to be ourselves...
Comparing to others
Not good at that
I cant sing like and I cant – but Preach
Everybody has things they are good at and everybody has things they are not good at.
WE HAVE TO GET OVER BEING BOTHERED BY IT
We have to understand not only the things we are good at but also the things we are not good at and we have to get over ourselves and stop being bothered by it.
We have to get over being bothered by it – Repeat it
SATAN WILL STEAL YOU FROM YOU
Some are faster – some learn through books some learn through life.
Satan steal you from you
He does not you to be free to be you and he does not want you to enjoy yourselves.
Dont like yourself. Dont approve of who they are
You are what you.
Whatever you are and whatever you are not – this morning is a good time to come to grips with that.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU ARE
You are what you are and thats it.
I am what I am – by the grace of God
It is what it is and thats all I can do.
PEOPLE WILL NEVER BE HAPPY WITH YOU
But what about all those people who are satisfied with who I am
Well I can tell you that most of those people will never be happy with who you are and you could spend your whole life trying to fix yourself up to try and be who they need you to be and they still would not be satisfied with who you are.
And whats more you are not ever going to be yourself and satan would have stolen you from you.
Stop trying to make someone happy who has already made their mind up that they are not going to be happy.
Get around to enjoy yourself and you will start to enjoy your life.
Start enjoying yourself and you will find you will start enjoying others. S
top being so critical of yourself and you will find you will stop being so critical of everyone else.
We all come with gifts – we all come with weaknesses we come with strength – we come with things we can do and we come with things we can’t.
We all make mistakes.
IT IS WHAT IT IS
In the process of hearing from God we all miss it sometimes.
“You know what I thought I had Gods approval to change Jobs but I obviously got it wrong. “
We take ourselves way to seriously.
Just call it what it is – It is what it is!
We need to stop bleeding over every mistake we make and create pressure pressure pressure to be like all these other people that are walking around thinking that they are the worlds worse as well.
We need to stop pressuring ourselves to be like all these other seemingly perfect people that aren’t.
The funny part is that they probably have more problems than you do – they have just gotten good at hiding them.
NOT ABOUT CHURCH
I don’t care one thing about what you look like here at church, I want to know about whats happening in your life behind closed doors at home.
Everybody has got a church face – Praise the Lord – Thank you Jesus – Amen amen amen brother.
But how do you act at home when you don’t get your way. What kind of a fit do you throw at home when one of your kids breaks a glass in the kitchen?
POWER FOR THE HOUR
I don’t want to know about the church hour....
