Hope Givers Cowboy Church short message from today by Dennis Cappel...
A moment between two thieves really just means to become aware of the Right Now!
Not letting yourself get stuck from the thief of the past or the worry thief of the future.
When you refuse to let yourself focus on reasons why things can not work and you place all your energy and attention into the reason why things can work, what you focus on multiples. Every time your thoughts try to drift you to the negative be quick to go to your NEXT thought and make it an encouraging and productive one.
Set a mental alarm inside your head, and when you hear your thoughts drifting towards the reason why something can not work hear the word NEXT, sounding in your head.
This is practical tip to help you live in this world in the HERE and NOW!
The scripture tells us we are to live in the world but to not be of the world. As scripture tells us that when you believe Jesus died, was buried and rose again, to pay all of your sin debt and make you righteous in Gods eyes, at that Moment you are positionally seated with Jesus in the Heavenly's, however; you still have to live here on earth. There are principals such as gravity that apply to us while we are on earth.
These are just a couple of examples,
1. Think only on the reasons of the HOW instead of the can't
2. Refuse to focus your attention on the reason why it can't work
Another practically earthly principal is to not get stuck in the past, you
live in the now and don't worry about the future.
Scripture says the future has enough worries of its own.
Look forward to next weekend as we will make a special day of the resurrection of
Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! April 20th sunrise service 6:30 with breakfast over an open fire following. Regular service 10:30 am. See you there!!!
