Mark Batterson said “Faith is unlearning the senseless worries and misguided beliefs that keep us captive. It is far more complex than simply modifying behavior...” In just a few short days, Jesus went from hero to zero. People will praise you one minute and then turn and abandon you just as quickly. Let’s see how Jesus handled it…

Psalm 121:1 says "I lift up my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Remember where your hope comes from and he will watch over you. God has got your back, no matter what it is you’re going through right now.

Hmmmm… Hamburger Helper? When Greg owned a grocery store, he was shocked at how much Hamburger Helper they sold. Psalm 121 is a short chapter, only 8 verses. Yet, these 8 verses are full of hope and God’s promise of help, and it’s much better than the stuff you buy at the grocery store. John 14:26 says “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”

Did God Really Say That? (pt 3)

April 6, 2022

Join Greg as he digs into Romans 12:9-21. God never runs out of blessings. There are more than plenty to go around.  Greg finishes pointing out 8 things to help us look, live and love like Jesus. It gets uncomfortable. We don’t want to do it. But we do it because it’s what God asks us to do. And we will be blessed for it.

April 5, 2022

Greg is challenging us this week to get out of our comfort zones. Let’s examine God’s commands in Romans 12:9-21 together. “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Did God really say to bless those who persecute us? That is very uncomfortable but Jesus asks us to do this. How in the world are we supposed to be able to follow these sayings? Let’s keep looking at 8 things that help us look, live and love like Jesus.

Is it time to refocus? What are you doing with your one and only life? Join Greg as he digs into Romans 12:9-21 and points out 8 things to help us look, live and love like Jesus. Did God really say we need to love one another? With words and deeds, too? Jump in and hang on for the next few days as Greg challenges us to listen as God calls us to go to the next level with Him. It may get uncomfortable but God is more concerned about our character than our comfort. Hang in there… there’s hope.

Plans for You (pt 1)

March 28, 2022

Last May, Greg was interviewed for a TV program called “Bloom Today” in Marietta, GA. That’s where he met a fellow guest on the show, Amber Davis. Amber joins today’s broadcast from the Nashville, Tennessee area. Satan wants to take us out and one of the ways he does that is by distracting us from doing what God has called us to do. Jeremiah 29:11 reminds us that God has plans for you.
