The place where I ate tonight was quiet as a mouse. It was still early in the afternoon and I was the only customer inside. This was quite the contrast to rush hour when seating anywhere is a premium. Sometimes the chaos and confusion of life is just so deafening, and we’re all looking for a little respite in a corner somewhere.
One of my friends who works from behind a service desk at the YMCA recently told me, “I hate Monday’s. After that I’m OK.” Truthfully all of us have probably felt that way. Sometimes we just need a Tuesday in order to RESET our Monday. Jesus understands; He wants to help.
This weekend I introduce a new four-week series from the Gospel of Mark, titled, RESET. If you’re like me and ever felt like your Monday needed a do-over, or your marriage needed a check-up, this series can potentially restore your hope. It’s not over. If Jesus is helping you write your story, He promises your best days are still in front of you.
This series could be your next step in a new direction of a better version of your life and focus. God could reveal some missing part of your story; guiding you to elevate your game and total life experience each day. Who knows, you might discover that this is a really cool discussion and exactly the insight you’ve been waiting for.
I realize everyone’s next step can look different; we’re not saying one size (or one series), fits all. But hey, what if this got things moving again in a positive direction. God is for everybody. God can do anything. It’s what we say all the time at Journey. This really is a place anyone could belong.
If you are a regular at Journey maybe this series would be helpful to someone you know as a friend? I promise we’ll do our best to not sound like talking heads on stage in the front of the room. We’re all in this thing together. We pray and plan with you in mind each week.
We believe God does things when we gather together in worship only He can do. I am praying for you and hoping you can join us this weekend for RESET. If you bring a guest we promise to be nice. It’s nice to be nice.
