“Look to Jesus” - Hebrews 12

July 18, 2018

Is what I’m doing serving the sole purpose in my life? Is it distracting – pointing away from the main point – to orient my life to Jesus and to point others in that way as well? Sin not only binds us it blinds us...it robs us of our vision of Christ – lack of belief destroys our witness. Hebrews 12 is a great teaching to help us get centered on Christ.

From wrecked to restored...Years of depression, alcoholism, and anger had wrecked our marriage and had left me exhausted and wanting out. God met me in an unexpected season at my absolute lowest point. From there He walked me up and out of my own depression and gave me hope. Hope is there for you as well.

Jennifer Richmond: “Satisfied” - My Story part 2

How finding satisfaction in God first and God fully changed everything. "It’s not that I had left Jesus – It’s that I was treating him like a social media friend following Him for what I could find interesting and motivational instead of surrendering every corner of my heart, mind, and soul to Him and finding ultimate satisfaction in Him first and Him fully."

“Satisfied” - My Story part 2

June 12, 2018

How being satisfied in God first and fully changes everything.

Discussion Group Questions:

  1. When we fail to be satisfied in God first and fully it results in spiritual devastation. We are prone to fill the longing of our heart with activities or things that may ease the pain, but ultimately this is self-destructive. How have you seen this in your own life?

 

  1. Waiting for a situation to change is one of the greatest challenges to being satisfied in God first and fully. True contentment is your friend when the wait is long and the process is slow. Do you think you are now or have before allowed yourself to be satisfied in an activity or person instead of first in God? How so? How did that change (if it has)? How might today’s talk help you change that?

 

  1. We’re not born naturally satisfied. Paul said that he “learned” to be content. How will you go about “learning” to be content? What are some ways you’ve already grown in this area?

 

  1. Learn to see in your own life when you’re white knuckling and just surviving and when you’re truly embracing joy and gratitude in trial. What are some signs you could look for? How do you think a trusted friend could help in this area?

…Take Home and Think About It…

 

  1. Is there an area of sin in your own life you know is keeping you from being satisfied in God first and fully? Not sure? Pray. Ask God to reveal that to you.
  2. Do you need help in an area of sin that has gotten a foothold in your life? You can contact me and we can meet privately for prayer and support. Jennifer@LaMiradaChurch.com
  3. Set aside time to read – really read – the Bible daily. I read 20 minutes in the morning and 20 at night. Not sure where to start? Read a Psalm and a Proverb every day. Get a daily reading Bible.
  4. Consider also listening to the Daily Audio Bible which takes you through the Bible in a year. Get the app or go to the website. Stop listening to vapid music – listen to the Word as you commute, get ready in the morning, or run errands.
