Stop, take a deep breath.
Reflect on how the hand of God is working in your life. God is always working in your life, even when it feels like a time of silence. God loves and cares for you. The gracious hand of God is on you.

Imagine the most selfish, negative and bitter person you know. Most of us can easily identify someone. Can you identify any of these undesirable traits in yourself? Have you ever had a poor, destructive attitude?
How would God want us as Christians to act?
Pastor Scott teaches about different life attitudes in today’s, insightful sermon. Our journey through Nehemiah continues (Ch2 11-20). While listening to this message you will learn about four positive ways Nehemiah faces challenges. He has an attitude we can all learn from.

This week you will face opposition; are you ready? How do you handle the opposition? Do you take it personally or plan revenge?
God wants us to do neither. As Christians we have different ways of handling our daily struggles.
Today you will learn, from Pastor Scott’s teachings, how God equips us to deal with opposition. Continuing our study of Nehemiah we look at two different people and how they opposed Nehemiah. Pastor Scott gives practical ways you can handle confrontation. You will learn the difference between carnal desires and Godly desires. God has equipped us all with the Holy Spirit, so we can all do what is right.
God knows your struggles and through trusting Him we can meet our challenges with confidence.
How do you define success? By your accomplishments or by attaining your goals? Success should not be outcome based. The best way to measure achievement is by asking and being able to say YES to the following question: Am I doing what God wants to me to do today?
We need to measures ourselves compared to God’s standards not the world’s standards. Pastor Scott teaches us in today’s message what characteristics define Nehemiah (Neh. 2:1-10). These are traits we can all practice and achieve. Among them are patience, overcoming fear, being willing to share your heart, planning and being dependent on God. Through the example of Nehemiah, you will discover strategies to develop these personality traits. You will learn how to acquire confidence, overcome your fears, and how to wait on God’s timing.
Remember life is not in the destination but in the journey.
