Happy Sunday! On our recent trip to Moab I was in awe of the arches and rock formations. Many of them seem to defy the laws of gravity and I had no idea how they had not tumbled to the ground--it appears impossible to my limited human thinking. As I return to reality (i.e. my daily life as opposed to vacation life), I encounter people who are dealing with seemingly impossible situations. Sadly, they are correct--on our own the hard life things are insurmountable. BUT, thankfully, the difficult becomes doable when we have Jesus on our side. He loves to work on the unfeasible "stuff" and make it achievable. This week, give God your impossible circumstances and let Him make them possible!

Today's MORE Monday focus is going to piggy-back off my Sunday Verses from yesterday-- getting more balance in our life. Yesterday, I shared that keeping God at the center of our lives is the best way to find the correct balance. I absolutely believe this. But, there are of course things we can do to help keep our lives balanced. Today, I want to give you ideas can use to focus on finding balance.

Happy Sunday! We spent spring break in Moab, Utah hiking and seeing all kinds of amazing rock formations like this one called Balance Rock. There were several incredible rocks "balancing" in what looked like the most precarious positions and I wondered how they did not fall. It made me think about how our lives are often a careful balancing act. There are many different paths to living a balanced life and your path may not look like mine, but letting Jesus be at the center of our lives in the one key we all can rely on for equilibrium. When we put God first--before our need to control things, before our ideas of how everything should work out, before our timetable--He works the balance out. This week let's work at giving "IT" to God and let him work it out.

If you have joined me on this journey of getting MORE out of life in 2017, you might remember that in the beginning I told you to have MORE of something it also meant that we we need less of other things.
This week, we are going to focus on having more space and more breathing room (in both our homes and minds) by having less clutter.

Happy Sunday! I am in the business of broken things. I take furniture and scrap wood that others see as useless and worthless and I repair and change them and make them useful again. God is in the same business. He loves broken people because he knows that he can utilize us to help others who are broken. God works with our shattered spirits and flaws and develops them into strengths. There is example after example in the Bible of flawed folks (Moses, Abraham, Job, Samson, Rahab, Noah, Jeremiah, Peter, Martha, Paul) that God worked with to transform lives. God does not want to wait until we have it all together to help others. He wants us to share our stories of brokenness to display his redemptive power. Our stories reach people who need to know what God can do. Give God your broken pieces and allow him to heal and use them.
