Christmas Unwrapped – Uncovering the Meaning of Christmas
De-Stressing The Holidays
Sunday, December 8, 2019 – Pastor George M. Dupree
 
The Christmas Holiday Season can certainly be Joy-Filled and of course, they can be Stress-Filled too. Maybe you had to stretch a little bit even to just read this post but I encourage you to read on, it’ll take only a few minutes…Here are some steps to take for De-Stressing The Holidays
 
1 – LOOK UP
It’s easy to get distracted… So we have to focus on things above, not earthly things. When we focus on the things of God we can better deal with the things of this earth. Colossians 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
 
2 – DRESS For The Holidays
During the holidays we can alleviate stress by reaching out to others. We can look around us and see that there are people who are in need. Not just in need of material things but also in need of compassion, kindness and patience Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience Isaiah 61:3 – (Put on) the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness
 
3 – FORGIVE Others
During the holidays there will be plenty of opportunities to forgive. From forgiving the person who takes your parking spot, to the rude cashier or the person who cuts you in a line to the more serious offenses of life. We have to forgive the friend or relative who has hurt us in the past. All of these things are opportunities for us to forgive, and forgive we must. Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
 
4 – LOVE Others
The key to it all is love. It always comes down to that one thing… love. It’s the thing that started it all with God sending His Son to us because He loved us. Jesus came to us with Compassion – Kindness – Humility – Gentleness – Patience
Jesus showed us the way to live. Love binds it all together. Love is the glue that can repair a broken life; it’s the glue that holds us together when our world is falling apart. Love Is The Key. Colossians 3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity
 
LOVE IS THE BEAUTIFUL RIBBON ON THE GIFT OF LIFE
 
These are the steps to De-Stress The Holidays – If we live by these instructions we will have the powerful peace of God Rule Our Hearts Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

Praise & Prayer October

 
On Friday, October 25th we’ll gather together Praise & Prayer.
 
We believe that Praise & Prayer go hand in hand and that great things happen when we do them as a group.
 
There’s an old song that says “It was prayer that got us here…”
At Living Water Church we believe that, prayer is our lifeline to heaven and we want to see God’s Kingdom come and His will be done on earth just as it is in heaven. That’s how Jesus taught us to pray and we’ll be doing that on 10/25.
 
We’ll be looking for you to join with us because we’re better together.

Fathers Blessing

 
Fathers Blessing
Sunday, June 16, 2019 – Pastor George Dupree
 
Genesis 18:18 …..Abraham will become the father of a great and powerful nation, and all the other nations of the earth will find their blessing in him. 19 I have chosen him for a reason, namely that he will carefully instruct his children and his household to keep themselves strong in relationship to Me and to walk in My ways by doing what is good and right in the world and by showing mercy and justice to all others. I know he will uphold his end of the covenant, so that he can ensure My promises to him will be fulfilled and upheld as well.
 
 
A Father – Gives, Speaks, and Keeps
Gives vision to his children of God’s favor and their destined purpose.
Speaks God’s word in faith over his family for success.
keeps his promises to lead his family in the purposes of God.
 
Galatians 3:14 This is what God had in mind all along: the blessing He gave to Abraham might extend to all nations through the Anointed One, Jesus; and we are the beneficiaries of this promise of the Spirit that comes only through faith.
 
Numbers 6:22-26 And the LORD spoketo Moses, saying:{23} “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall blessthe children of Israel. Say to them:{24} “The LORD bless you and keep you;{25} The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you;{26} The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace
