"Good Riddance" Sunday 

The New Year is a wonderful time to start fresh and to focus on making positive changes, which is why Pastor Davis encouraged everyone to give God those things that hinder us from fulfilling God's potential for our lives.  He handed out sheets of paper with these words printed: 

Give God:  bad memories/habits/decisions, financial worries,     weaknesses, broken relationships, difficult circumstances, illness/surgery/cancer, failures, inadequacies, job/vocation, school, life's pressures, guilt, doubts, suffering, worries/cares/ burdens, those who despise or use you, spiritual failures & sin, broken promises to God & others, etc."

Pastor Davis asked us to write down everything that could become "stumbling blocks" in our lives . . . . .  and then to reinforce the idea that once we give God our burdens, they are gone, he had us walk to the front of the sanctuary and put our
lists through the paper shredder.

"Don't measure the size of the mountain; talk to the One who can move it.  Instead of carrying the world on your shoulders, talk to the One who holds the universe on His."

God has great plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11), but we need to let go of the things that prevent us from recognizing and receiving those plans.
