LIVE THE MESSAGE is our church's current motto. The idea behind it is to live our lives as Christians so that Sunday morning flows seemlessly into just as much faith, grace, and joy on Monday morning. LIVE THE MESS ...is often where we honestly find ourselves. As a stay-at-home mom, I'm all too familiar with messy life and often let my focus be on the emotional laundry heap of daily life. My ...AGE creeps up on me and I complain that I'm too old to _____________ (fill in the blank), and I'd really rather LIVE THE MASSAGE of an easier life. But Jesus gave His life that each of His followers could truly LIVE! an abundant life, both here on earth and with Him for eternity. That's why each moment of our daily heartbeat should reflect the true meaning of THE MESSAGE! In the original language, the phrase "gospel" or "good news" can be translated as "the news that is so amazing that it seems too good to be true." Thank you, Jesus!
For several years I have had severe pain in the joints in my hands. The pain also caused weakness to the point that there were days when I could not even grip the lid on a bottle of pop tight enough to open it. Even picking up small a item was very painful if not sometimes impossible. I work in an auto body shop so I use my hands constantly and many days I would have to take several Aleve to make doing my job tolerable. Two Sundays ago I came to Lifepointe like any other Sunday other than my hands were bothering me more than normal. Through out the service I found myself rubbing the joints in my hands several times. I thought to myself as I always have, Its just the price of getting older and being so hard on my hands my whole life. I never thought the pain would go away and sadly I never prayed for it to go away. Near the end of worship Drew prayed for healing and in that moment the pain instantly disappeared. I have full strength back in my hands and the pain is completely gone. Jehovah Rapha!!!
