A Test of Courage

1 Samual 17:16

Your problems might be bigger than you, but God is bigger than your problems!

How the Mighty Fall

1 Samuel 17:16

When you see your enemy, victory is in sight. Remember, "How the Mighty Fall."

Power of Compounding

Deuteronomy 9:25-29

Even when our tests are compounded, God shows that He loves us so much that He compounds His promises - to give us a perfect scapegoat that takes away our sin and the perfect promise of a savior, our Savior, Jesus.

Putting the Pieces Back Together

Deuteronomy 9:25-29

Sometimes life is in pieces...
...and to make things worse... know it's your own fault.
In those broken seasons, you can always look back to the One who is "Putting the Pieces Back Together."

Memory Test

Deuteronomy 8:1-2

God promises that He will lead you and He will guard your hearts. This week - believe God. Because He never goes back on His word!

The Bridge. Discover the Other Side of Your Story

Deuteronomy 8:1-2

Remember... step forward into what God has placed in front of you! God has given you "The Bridge" so you can "Discover the Other Side of Your Story."

Good Medicine. Seeing God at Work in our Grief

Genesis 50:1-3

So it got a bit emotional... and that's OK. A grieving season is a difficult season. But when going through this difficult process, we can find "Good Medicine. Seeing God At Work In Our Grief."

It is OK not to be OK

Genesis 50:1-3

Even as God's children, we will endure pain, suffering and grief. When we stop depending on ourselves we ultimately find true comfort in no other place than in the arms of our Lord, who whispers to us "It's OK to not be OK".

One of God's Greatest Gifts

Genesis 8:6-12

Often God can send tests to teach us patience, so we stop looking to ourselves and we are compelled to look to Him. He limits our tests to encourage us to look forward to something better, one of His greatest gifts - hope!

The Wonderful Wait

Genesis 8:6-12

Waiting Is So Hard... Why?
God is at work in those times of waiting and gives us reason to embrace "the Wonderful Wait."

When It Just Keeps Raining

Genesis 7:17-24

We are tested on a daily basis so we no longer focus on ourselves and our own strength but shift our focus to Christ and the cross - because He passed the test for us!

When it rains, it pours

Genesis 7:17-24

When the rain is falling and there's more on the way...
...there may actually be blessings coming and opportunity ahead! When going through a season of testing, keep your eyes open for what God may be doing because when it rains, it pours.

Tested (from Cottage Grove)

Mark 1:12-14

40. Testing. Jesus & You.
This Ash Wednesday we dig into Mark 1:12-13 where we see that we can pass the test because our Savior passed it for us!

Tested (from Fort Atkinson)

Mark 1:12-13

What do you think of tests?
We don't usually like tests. But sometimes a test sets us up for a beautiful new beginning. On Ash Wednesday we not only began a new sermon series, but began to see the beauty of how we have a Savior and a faith that is "Tested."
