15 Nov Feeling Gritty?
Feeling gritty? This is a great question to ask yourself this weekend! God has so much in store for you but it’s going to take perseverance, focus, and faith to achieve those goals.
Did you know that God desires us to be FINISHERS!? God is documented as being the very first finisher by creating the world in six days! Noah and the ark, Abraham the father of nations, Moses the deliverer, and so many more! Even Jesus was gritty and said, “It is FINISHED!” on the cross. However, even Jesus had to go through some harsh seasons, some intense trials, great temptations, and some tears. We are now able to receive the love of Jesus and live with Him because of His grit!
Be the gritty finisher you were created to be! Reach those goals!
“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14 NIV)
The process may be hard, but the reward behind it will blow your mind! Trust God and don’t give up because your future will be greater than your past! I invite each of you to bring someone you know that could use some encouragement to stay in the fight and finish! Know that you’re around other people who are in a process too. We all feel like giving up from time to time, but we have a God that will show Himself strong in our weakness. Pastor Benji will be continuing Part III of our GRIT series this Sunday. Make sure you read II Timothy 2 in preparation for this weekend. See you guys at a campus nearest you!
