Option Two- Week of December 9th

When it comes to expectations, especially during the Christmas season, we have the opportunity to show those around us something good about Jesus – after all it’s His birthday! Think about the next three weeks and write down your goals and desires. Be honest and specific!

Go back over your list and ask yourself what things you have control over and what things require others to co-operate. Now look back at the message notes regarding goals and desires. Do you need to rethink your expectations? Read the rest of the message notes. How can you reframe your expectations to be aligned with how God wants you to represent Him over the next three weeks? [If you need help, ask a trusted and wise friend.] Once you have adjusted your Christmas expectations, commit yourself to be God’s faithful representative wherever you are. He will give you the strength, endurance, courage, grace and peace you need! And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
