Who's ready for some inspiration to get you through the week? Well whether you wanna hear (errr read ) it or not, here it comes. ;) C'mon get excited people...
This week's message comes courtesy of Pastor Dave Martin who blessed us with his presence here in Hawaii yesterday. He talked about a lot of things but one thing that really stuck out to me was him talking about weathering the storms of life.
He used the example of flying in an airplane. When the plane gets to a point where there's turbulence do you get off the plane and say "Hey, I'm not good with turbulence so I'm just gonna get off right here." No, of course not.
Seems funny to use that analogy but when you think about it, a lot of times when the turbulence of life happens in our lives instead of buckling up and going through the turbulence we give up and "get off the plane."
My challenge to you all is that you'll face each and every problem you may have in your life as if you're stuck in an airplane with no other option but to go through the turbulence. It may hurt, it may feel uncomfortable, it may make you feel sick to your stomach, heck it may cause you to have a panic attack but whatever "it" may be, just remember that you have the option to buckle up and hang on until the turbulence passes and rest assured that it will definitely pass just as long as you use God as your seat belt.
Often times we go through turbulence in order for us to gain the strength we'll need to accept and handle the blessings that God has in store for us. It may also be God's way of purging us from certain things, places or even people so that we may get to the next level in life. So don't forget to buckle up and wait out that turbulence, God will most definitely be there for you.
I wish you all a blessed and prosperous week.
Happy Monday everyone!!
