Weekend Preview | First Things First: Part 3

By Matt Dawson

How Can My Priorities Make A Difference?

“I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.” – Bob Goff

After two weeks of discussing the major elements (Time & Money) that make up the framework of priorities in our lives, many have asked me – “so what can I practically do to change my priorities?”

This is a great question.

At the heart of it, no matter what we place first in our lives, we all want to have maximum impact. No one ever strives to be average! There is something wired in all of us that wants our lives to matter… to make a difference in our world.

Meet Johnny.

Johnny had some major things going against him in life, but he made an intentional choice to do ONE THING everyday to have an impact and make a difference to someone else.

Johnny’s story is remarkable, not because he simply wanted to do something remarkable, but because he consistently did one small thing everyday to help make someone else’s day a bit better.

Join us as we finish our series “First Things First: Prioritize Your Life” this Sunday and learn how we can also have a larger impact with our lives through small intentional choices that align with our priorities.

Your choices matter.

That truth is taught to us in most of our lives.  Even from a very young age, parents will teach their kids that their choices can dictate the quality and direction of their lives.

  • Get good grades, you’ll be rewarded.

  • Be kind to others, you’re often treated kind in return.

Understanding the power of our personal choices isn’t so much about learning how to get what you want as it is about knowing how your actions dictate the quality and direction of your life.  However, we don’t always make the best choices.

Fracture – Finding Hope in the Pain: Part 1 – Fractured Stories from Journey Church on Vimeo.

By Matt Dawson

In the many stories that fill our lives, everyone experiences pain.  Everyone goes through moments when a FRACTURE happens and it’s painful at a soul-level.

A Fracture is a soul-depth crack or break in our story, caused by our individual decisions or compounded by our external circumstances.

Every Fracture has a Purpose… an opportunity for DESPAIR or HOPE. 

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ NIV

Jesus comes to bring us Life to the Full.  The Enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy us.  To know this, doesn’t lessen the pain or make that fracture go away any faster.

We understand that in every fracture, there is either a purpose to take us out and flatline our story or an opportunity for God to bring HOPE to that pain.
