Jesus looked at you, then looked back at the cross and said “You’re worth it”. He paid the highest price knowing we may never love Him back. That is the purest form of love.
Thank you, @keithcraft for pouring out your wisdom upon us this past Sunday.
We’re forever changed.
Are you dealing with some kind of CONFLICT today?
If you are, you are not alone! Everyone is dealing with some kind of STRUGGLE.
I love my 1828 Webster’s Dictionary! Webster defines Conflict as struggle. He describes it as EBULLITION: the “boiling”point at which heat agitates water.
Has some kind of fire agitated your flow?
I want to encourage you today to remember that water boils at 212F and it is at THAT POINT, that water turns to steam and becomes even a more powerful source.
Don’t just be agitated today by your conflict! You have the power to use what it agitating you to ADVANCE YOU!
What a privilege to be @therocksandiego with my friend @milesmcpherson. Hundreds of people came to the altar to make new decisions for Jesus! This video was posted by @sheilagcraft in the last service (6pm) of 4 throughout the day! God moved at THE ROCK today!
Today I did the Papa Gorilla dance to celebrate our servantleaders! (Swipe left:)

My heart is full of gratitude for the GREAT THINGS He hast done!!
Tonight is our 18th Annual Dream Team Awards! I love sharing this God-story with @sheilagcraft! Se are so grateful for the 2400+ servant-leaders @elevatelc! “Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” Martin Luther King Jr.

God’s Delays are never meant to Deter you, but to Detour you.
Thought Behind the Quote:
I don’t know anyone who likes delays. There are all kinds of delays we deal with from traffic delays to canceled flights. Those delays are small in comparison to being delayed for a job, a promotion, meeting the person of our dreams, or just being at a certain place in life that seems elusive at best. We get frustrated because most of us think we are ready…when we are not ready. We believe we are ready to be married. Ready for children. Ready for that thing around the corner in our lives that is going to make our lives better. Ready for a breakthrough.
I am reminded about the children of Israel that thought they were ready to come out of the bondage of the Egyptians after 400 years. God had promised them a land flowing with milk and honey. What was supposed to take 11 days, took 40 years. You talk about a delay!! We really need to understand that God’s delays are not necessarily God’s denials. The next time you experience a delay, it just may be that God is trying to show you a better way, not so you won’t go the same way, but maybe so you won’t be the same way you have always been, so you keep getting in life what you have always gotten.
The next time you feel like your life is in a delay pattern consider doing the following:
1. Pray…ask God if there is something He wants to show you.
2. Defray…rather than being frustrated, be open to God’s process that will bring about God’s progress.
3. Pay…it forward. You’re delayed anyway, look for someone to serve. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
The last several weeks at Elevate Life Church, God has been moving in a very special way. We are going deeper in our worship and seeking God like never before. We are believing for God To do more in the last three months of this year, As we move forward like never before. I invite you to join us and experience the next level that God has for you!
To be transactional means you are focused on what you are getting from being in this relationship.
Unfortunately, when you are focused on what the other person can do for you and you base the relationship on that, you MISS the true potential value of that relationship.
As scripture teaches us, it is IN HIS PRESENCE that we FIND FULNESS of JOY!
The PRESENCE comes before the PRESENTS!
Transactional people focus on the WHAT they get from the relationship more than the WHO they get...so they end up missing out on both benefits.
Seek to value and recognize the presence of the WHO’S in your life and rest assured that IF they feel valued by you, whatever they have to GIVE will fill you with JOY!
Someone famously said, “Don’t seek the GIFT...seek the GIVER!
