NOTE: The intro of this sermon was "cut-off"... The setting for this sermon is found in the idea of enjoying life. Somedays are really enjoyable, like the kind of days when you get to see what your new bicycle is made of. Would't it be nice if everyday could be something like that! I wander... maybe it can?
“Que, Sera, Sera” (Whatever will be will be…). When life seems to be beyond our control isn’t that what we say? We might put some kind of Christian spin on it like "let go and let God..." but is that realy how this works. Our story is God's story of redemption but that does not mean we don't have a part to play.
You will not have the time, resource, and or abilities to get all that you hope to get out of this life. Even as people who belong to the promise our lives are filled with various digrees of dissapointment. This sermon seeks to answer the question, "how to navagate disappointment".
Everybody wants to make a difference, but not everybody is willing to do what it takes to make a differenc. Every Christian wants to be used by God, but not every Christian is willing to surrended to what it take to become the kind of person that is used by God. This sermon is about the kind of person that makes a difference.
