Fancy "Footwork"

It’s that time of year…you might see that row of lawn chairs in the shade at your neighborhood park, maybe you’re sitting in one of those chairs…oh yeah it’s soccer season!  

This season their couldn't be a more special or excited soccer player, than, Gabriel Muniz. He's 11 years old, and his dream is to play professional soccer.  He’s from Brazil, where a lot of little boys have that same dream. But he’s different, special you might say.  

He's so special that the pro-team, FC Barcelona, has invited him to their youth training camp.  It’s his fancy footwork that got their attention.  You see Gabriel doesn’t have feet.  

He was born that way, but never saw it as a limitation.  It makes you feel like your limitations, might not be so limiting either...

If Only

A cure for you if you have a case of the “if onlys”.

If only I had that house.
If only I had that car.
If only my spouse would understand.
If only I had that spouse
If only my children behaved better
If only I had children.

I was listening to this pastor over the weekend talk about how we can
have holes and hurt in our life, and how easy it is to look to things
or people to fill them.  It’s only a temporary fix though.  And it’s
not their job to fill you, that’s God’s job.  So maybe you could let
them off the hook, and ask God for a permanent fix.

If that's you, try praying this prayer:

“Lord, father in heaven I call on you to meet my needs like only YOU
can, and to heal my hurt like only YOU can.  I release my expectations
of others to fulfill me and I receive your love that fills my every 
need.”

 –Steve Furtick (Elevation Church)

 

"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" -Philippians 4:19
