Monday Morning Musings ...

Yesterday was a very good day. The weather had been bad all weekend, yesterday was actually the best day we have had since Thursday, but there was a lot of snow on the ground, driveways, sidewalks and some roads. With that in mind I was pleased with the number we had attend, it was down, but not nearly as low as I expected. Our time was singing in worship went okay, with no technical glitches which was a nice surprise. The prayer time seemed to be a good time of people really connecting with God. The message went well and people seemed to be engaged and really attentitive.

I continued our series, and our year's theme, on "Whatever ... It Takes". We looked at the choice options we have regarding what plan we follow for our lives. We can choose to have others plan for us. We can choose to plan for ourselves or we can choose to follow God's plan for us. We looked at the results of each of these choices. We used Philippians 3:7-11 as our foundation of this series for the message. The choice of others allows us to blame them if things don't go as planned. The choice of ourselves allows us to try and control everything. The choice of God's plan puts us out of control and yet secure.

In the evening we did a recap and discussion of the morning message. It was a powerful time of sharing and discussion. People could ask anything about the message for clarification or just sharing how it impacted them. I came away really pumped about the questions, discussion and real thought that was shared.

So how was your Sunday? What choice have you made on whose plans to follow?

Here's hoping that find a way to encourage someone today.
