"Genuine Gratitude: Don't Leave Home Without It" - Genuine Wisdom

Speaker: Charlotte Travis

If you’ve ever tried to put something together without the instructions, you know that skipping a step can certainly harm the integrity of the work. Often things aren’t as spiritually “put together” in our lives as they should be, because we are trying to live without that foundational step one of a genuinely grateful heart. It is not something we put on, and wear ourselves out keeping up. It bubbles up from a place of truth, rest, and security in Christ. It is something He requires of us – not just for our good, but for the sake of those around us, and the Kingdom work He has for us. Through testimony of the power of gratitude, as well as mistakes made, we will learn about the vital role gratitude plays in joyful and victorious living.

Speaker: Linda McEntire

In each of our stories, there are situations that cause great disappointment and pain:  unsaved loved ones, singleness, infertility, failed relationships, besetting sins, addictions, illness, and hopelessness. Yet, in many places in Scripture, we see these types of admonishments:  “Rejoice always…for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus” and “All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,” to name just a few. Linda McEntire will share some insights on how to believe and to live out these admonitions in Scripture when God can, but doesn’t.
