Mother's Day Sermon Sunday on Wednesday... eh!?
Frustrations of a Fixer
The weekend of Mother's Day, Pastor Steven Furtick preached a powerful message on the frustrations of a fixer. We can all find that fixer in our life and relate to this message.
- God completes us. We can't complete someone else and someone else can't complete us.
- People were not created to fill the needs that God is suppose to fill.
- When you need affirmation less, you can give affirmation more.
Personal Reflection: This sermon was so powerful. I am a fixer. I find myself relating to Elkenah in 1 Samuel 1:4-8. He thought that Hannah's problem had something to do with him. When in actuallity, it had nothing to do with him. I need to stop thinking that everyone else's problem has sometihng to do with me. I can't compelte anyone. That is God's role.
The happy ending to the 1 Samuel is that Hannah was able to have a child. She brought her brokeness to God and he healed her pain.
