Pursuing Purpose Through Relationships
I hope you are well! As we approach the new year, I want to take a moment to reflect on the power of our relationships. The health of our relationships matters so much! Our relationships affect our future, our mental health, and our ability to pursue the purpose God has for us.
We are the church, and the church needs strong, healthy, loving, kind relationships in order to flourish.
We are in a political and cultural climate of dishonor, disrespect, and distrust. (just add the prefix 'dis' on all things good... and basically, that is where we are today)
As the church, we are called to embody the fruits of the holy spirit. We are called to be slow to speak, slow to become angry, and quick to listen.
If you are married, are you making your marriage about you being happy or becoming holy?
If you are dating, does this person make your happy, or are they helping you to become more holy?
God has a beautiful design for a flourishing home and flourishing relationships. We must intentionally invest in our relationships. It is work, but it is GOOD work!
What happens when you get your relationships right?
You make ETERNAL impact, and get to enjoy the fullness of Jesus in this world. Who wants that? ME!
If you are ready to have a healthier relationship, please take some time this week to watch this fantastic sermon by Pastor Rich + DawnCheré Wilkerson of VOUS church. It blessed my home, and I know it will bless yours. It is for everyone, no matter your relationship status, but it is incredibly powerful for married couples.
Want some great news? Pastor DawnCheré Wilkerson is speaking at our Dreamers Summit! She will be kicking things off on the morning of December 5th. You don't want to miss this! Be sure to grab your ticket here!
Have a wonderful week! We are rooting for you!
P.S. Challenge for Married Folks:
Watch with your spouse and take notes! Afterward, take time to discuss areas to discuss each other's strengths, seek forgiveness, and build systems that allow your home to flourish. Do we need new boundaries in our homes? Are you setting a good example for our kids? What values do we want to share?
