TOOLBOX FOR LIFE

Toolbox for Life is another four-week Video session by Rick Warren.   We all need a toolbox of skills to succeed in life. The truth is sincere desire and determination alone are not enough. Many people work hard. But it’s not about working hard, it’s about working smart. It’s about working God’s way.

The Bible is filled with all kinds of life instructions. In this practical, four-session study, Pastor Rick will show us how to develop these four biblical, success-building skills:

  • How to deal with the naysayers in your life
  • How to identify the source of your core values so you know what matters most
  • How to understand your God-given SHAPE so you can maximize your strengths
  • How to study God’s Word so you know the best timing for every situation

WHEN GOD SHOWS UP AND THINGS BLOW UP IN A GOOD WAY

My life changed when I put on a Chewbacca mask, cracked up at myself, and over 160 million people laughed along with me. 1 still have not figured out exactly what was going on that day in my van. 1 don’t fully understand what happened the next two days when I was invited to appear on TV shows and interviewed by people I had only seen on a screen up to that point in my life. But here are a few things I am learning through this experience.

We were made- for laughter, joy, and fun – more than we realize. Our hearts and souls long for joy. I believe there is a God who delights when we laugh and celebrates when we play.

God has a destiny for each of us. It is better than we dream. And He will move us toward our destiny in surprising and shocking ways. God might not use a Star Wars mask and the internet to unfold your destiny, but He has a plan and it is going to be a fun ride, if you are willing to jump on.

To be totally honest, I’m still figuring out what all of this means for me. God is still unfolding His plan and I am having a great time figuring out where this is all going. I am excited to have you join me on this journey of life, laughter, joy, and discovery,

Think ABOUT IT, TALK ABOUT IT

Tell about a time God pulled back the curtain and gave you an exciting and unexpected glimpse of His plan and destiny for your life. What did you see and how did you feel?
