Monday Kfirst Kickstart: “The Missing Piece to Peace” #TrueNorth

Today I want to give you a place to start your week. It’s Monday and in the wake of a great weekend and a workweek ahead, sometimes you just need a “kickstart” to get focused.  So grab some coffee let’s start a great week together.

I’m not sure if you knew this, but a magnetic compass doesn’t always show “true north.” It has been historically known that “magnetic north” waders in diverse directions. At some periods in the earth’s history, it reversed so that magnetic north pole has been near the geographic south pole. What we know as “true north” is north according to the earth’s axis. Most of us only know magnetic north. We follow what a needle driven by a magnetic PULL and have learned to follow that.

There are many things “pulling” at our attention attempting to get the focus of our lives. Jesus is our “True North.” And in this series, we’ll dive into the Old Testament prophets who spoke out to draw the people of God back to “True North.”

Check out the service yesterday from the website or from the Facebook livestream. 

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • Peace is marked by the presence of Christ, not by the condition of our circumstances.
  • Lasting peace can be found when we realize Jesus is our source for peace and He is always with us.
  • “God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because…there is no such thing.” – C.S. Lewis
  • We are not called to be peace keepers but peace makers.

Love you all. Have an amazing week.

BTW: Here’s a great song for this week…

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • Hope has a name and it’s Jesus.
  • Prophecy lets us know WHO God is and WHAT he is up to.
  • You can face darkness but live in hope.
  • God’s past faithfulness infuses us with hope for the future.
  • God can turn my “Valley of Trouble” into my “Door of Hope.” (Hosea 2:14-15)
  • The evidence of our hope isn’t in SOMETHING we see, it’s in SOMEONE we know.
  • Hope: God’s promises alive IN us; Obedience: Hope accomplished THROUGH us.

Love you all. Have an amazing week.

Sunday, we kicked off this new series.  Check out the service yesterday from the website. Unfortunately, we don’t have it from the Facebook livestream. 

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • I can REDUCE my beliefs down to my experience or I can RAISE my experience up to my beliefs.
  • Prophecy lets us know WHO God is (disposition) and WHAT he is up to (direction).
  • Too many of us try to bring God’s story into our story instead of us stepping into His story.
  • It’s amazing how a storyline in your head can develop a “pull” in your heart.

Love you all. Have an amazing week.

BTW: Here’s our new song we’ve done over the past two weeks:
