Have there been some Sundays when you have just really needed to hear a good sermon....and it didn't happen?  There are times when I do and today was one of those times....and it didn't happen.  In fact....I didn't hear a sermon at was one endless announcement.  Am I complaining....probably a bit.  The funny thing is it all kind of ties in to something I read before going to church.

I was reading about football....the Packers and 49er's game.  They were saying how it was going to be really cold and the players would have many challenges to face with the weather conditions.  They said the players would have to go back, focus and be extremely detailed doing the fundamentals they had learned.  When I read this that sentence jumped off the page!

I believe God let me read that this morning because it's what He has told me I need to do this year....refocus.  Go back....retrace my steps and do the things I used to do on a consistent basis.  Be detailed about doing the fundamentals I learned in the beginning!  So when challenges like today come along....just step back and refocus.

Psalms 46:10a
Be still and know that I am GOD.

John 3:30
He must become greater and greater,
and I must become less and less.

These verses remind me that GOD is in control....not me.  I just need to focus on HIM and what HE has for me.  Let HIM become the number ONE in my life.  What I want doesn't matter....only GOD and HIS plan for my life. 

"until we see JESUS....face to face"



  1. I totally agree Chelle,
    He has to be number One in our lives.

  2. It sounds like you got that good sermon after all!
    God speaks in many ways. Maybe He didn't want you to get distracted by a different message in church. Though He often speaks through a pastor...sometimes they get too focused on things of this world...I had a pastor one time who never spoke of much else but deer hunting during that season! I am glad that God spoke to me through His word and other believers throughout the years since I am not often in church...Even His creation speaks of Him.
