Strength means….Confess….then Repent!

This morning I went on an early morning run around one of the local golf courses in our neighborhood.  My plan was to run the cart paths that traced around the entire 18 hole of the course.  As I was running, enjoying the stillness in the crisp winter air, my mind started thinking about all the things I needed to get done today.  My ambitions of running the longer distance waned away when I turned the bend around the 9th green.  Sadly, I caved and headed back home after only accomplishing “half” of what I had set out to do!  Ugh!

This week’s lesson might incur similar thoughts from you.  Have you ever started something “grand” only the get half of it accomplished?  Humor me and admit that I’m not alone in my earlier morning short-coming today!  As you read through this week’s homework, Chapters 31-31, listen the the author’s message about “confession”.  If we only “confess” but do not truthfully “repent”, then we’ve likewise only accomplished half of what God has instructed us to do.

Hmmmmm…..more on that this week as our weekly leader, Rob Miller, will guide us in our discussions.  This is the wrap up for our current theme of “Be Strong”.  Next week, we’ll start the final theme of the book, “Do Everything in Love”.

See you this Friday at 7:30 am at The Cornwell Center.  Rob will kick things off promptly at 7:45 am.
