MS Ministry Partner Update for Jan. 13, 2016

Where can you find an ocean without water?

On a map.

THIS WEEK IN MIDDLE SCHOOL

We're going to talk about our thoughts, which are so important in determining who we become. In fact, Solomon said this in Proverbs 23.  He said, "As a person thinks in his heart so he is."  I like to say it this way.  I like to say that your life will always move in the direction of your strongest thoughts.

In other words, if you think you can't, you probably won't.  If you think life is going to be bad, it probably will be bad.  If you think you don't have anything to offer, you probably won't make a difference.  

On the other hand, if you think you can, you probably will.  If you believe that there are opportunities out there, you will see those opportunities. If you believe that God is for you and with you, you will sense his power and his presence, because our thoughts matter. As a person thinks in his heart, so he becomes.

This Week's Sermon in a Sentence
Your life will always move in the direction of your strongest thoughts.

This Week's Scripture:
2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Philippians 4:8-9

Let's pray for the students and prepare our hearts and minds to encourage taking a next step in faith.
