It all began on Sunday, January 1, 1978
 
Over 40 years ago, Living Water started out as a Prayer Meeting in Frank & Phyllis Dupree’s living room in Laurel, NY on Long Island’s east end. Soon, the church grew, and on January 1, 1978, we moved into a storefront building in Jamesport, NY.

Honor Your Mother

Honor Your Mother

Sunday, May 13, 2018 – Pastor George M. Dupree

Ephesians 6:2 Honor your father and mother. This is the first of the Ten Commandments that ends with a promise. 3 And this is the promise: If you honor your father and mother, you will live a long life, full of blessing.

If you will honor you Mother things will go well for you and you’ll have a long life.

There are three stages of a mother child relationship.

1 – As a Child we learn to obey.

Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents; this is the right thing to do because God has placed them in authority over you.

2 – As a Teenager we learn to respect

Leviticus 19:3 Every one of you must respect his mother…

Hebrews 12:9 We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live?

One way we respect is to talk and listen respectfully.

Proverbs 13:1 Intelligent children listen to their parents; foolish children do their own thing.

.

When you listen respectfully you’ll learn some things

Proverbs 6:20 … never forget what your mother taught you. 21 Keep their words with you always, locked in your heart.

3 – Adulthood is where we learn how to appreciate

Proverbs 23:22b When your mother is old, show her your appreciation.

Appreciate her efforts – parenting is hard

Think about how much easier her life would’ve been without you.

Thank and appreciate your mom for putting up with you

Appreciate her sacrifice – Parenting is expensive.

According to the Department of Agriculture for a middle-income family of four the estimated cost of raising a child from birth through age 17 is $233thousand dollars.

Choosing to become a parent is an expensive decision.

Proverbs 23:25b May she who gave you birth be happy.

As a whole, western culture does not respect the elderly like many other non-western cultures. Oftentimes western cultures use much of their resources on the young and forget the elderly.

Jesus only said a few things on the cross and one of those things was said to his friend John when He told him to care for His mother, Mary.

God gives a very stern a very warning about caring for family

1 Timothy 5:8 But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Remember your mother and tell her that you appreciate and love her.

Call her, write to her, and take some time to be with her.

She may not be able to do everything she used to be able to do but she’s a human being not a human doing.

When you need someone to pray for you ask her.

Roller Coasters

ROLLER COASTERS

Have you experienced ups and downs in your life? Like a rollercoaster, life is filled with twists, turns, sudden drops and slow acceleration to heights unimaginable. We call the soaring to new heights, “success”. God has designed ups and downs in life, but they are planned for your growth and maximum joy.

If you look at Paul the Apostle’s life, you see he had his ups and downs. From raising the dead to wanting to give up. But through it all, he learned to be joyful in all circumstances. If you follow the life of Paul, you will see he had many steep falls in his life.

Today, simplify your life in order to enjoy God’s goodness. Examine what you are afraid of and why. Identify the circumstances you think you control. Remember, you cannot control most of the things around you, nor can you control other peoples’ actions or attitudes.

The one thing you have complete control over is what happens inside you. This is what God is concerned with. He is not so much concerned with the things going on around you as He is about the things going on inside you.

This is how we begin to grow and develop our full potential. When you trust God and learn to be content regardless of your circumstances, you will be free of fear, and joy will be abundant in every circumstance.

Sometimes we all get so involved in our “to-do” lists and worrying about tomorrow that we don’t enjoy the moment. Remember the old adage:

Take time to smell the roses! Whether you live with joy during the ups and downs of your life, or you live in fear is based on who you trust and is your decision, so choose well.

Overcoming Depression

 
Living with depression is like being in a prison without bars. You want to get out. There are no visible barriers holding you in, but somehow you can’t seem to break free. When people are depressed, they are totally consumed with themselves and their circumstances. Depression imprisons its victims by robbing them of hope while drowning them in a sea of melancholy, self-pity, low self esteem, no confidence and fear.
 
Remember when Jesus started His ministry. He boldly proclaimed that part of His mission was to heal the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, and set at liberty those who are oppressed.
 
When we allow His perfect love to flood our hearts, fear and other negative, depressive thoughts won’t find a place to stay in us. When we draw near to God, He draws near to us through the Holy Spirit. We are confident that He will not leave us nor forsake us, so that even though we experience depression, He is with us and speaking comfort to us.
 
The Apostle Paul had gone through difficult times but was able to write to the Corinthian Church with these words. He states: “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”
 
Depression is no trivial matter. The enemy of our soul is bent on using this problem to destroy us by stealing our joy and our hope. Hope deferred or taken away does make the heart sick, but when our desires are fulfilled it brings life.
 
Every person who has ever suffered from depression, or who may face it in the future, should know that God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind. Jesus said that we shall know the truth and it will set us free.
 
Knowing is not just having knowledge, but personal application will bring transformation. If depression seems to overshadow you like a black cloud, put on a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Be appreciative, grateful and humble.

By doing this, you put on the helmet of salvation. Rise up, and confidently convince yourself the promise God has given you; “for I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
