Finding Contentment: Discovering the Blessings in Your Life!

We are currently in session for the Spring Semester of True Reflections.   We’re still just getting started, but it’s been oh so good.

One of our main objectives in every class is to take a look at the lies we believe about ourselves and about God.  As we look at those lies, we seek to replace them with truth from the Word of God.

During our first week together we discussed the lie of control.  What good news that God is in control of our lives and circumstances.  He has always been in control and always will be.  A question to ask yourself is, "Are you willingly giving God the steering wheel or do you reach over from the passenger side?"  It’s a lie that you can drive well from the right side of the car.

During our second week, we sought to replace the lie of control with the truth of contentment.

Is Your Well Dry?

When you experience the pressures of life, where do you turn? 

Just one more binge?

Just one more purge?

Just one less meal today?

Just one more.  So often we go back to the same wells that we know have left us empty before.  We go back hoping for different results.  We go back thinking this will be the last time.

When we turn to wells that we have already run dry, the result will continue to be the same every time we go there.  A dry well.  The binge that we have tried to fill our void for comfort and security will always leave us feeling empty.  The purge that was meant to rid us of sadness and anger will always leave us feeling empty.  Skipping that meal will never give us the control we hope for.

Every time we turn to these empty wells we will get the same result – a dry well.

There was a woman in Scripture who continually turned to a dry well of physical intimacy.  Time and time again she turned to the arms of a man to meet the void in her life.  Yet time and time again, she was left empty.  Not only was her well dry, but she was an outcast in her society – a woman and a Samaritan.  She held no place of authority, had no family, and most  likely felt extreme guilt and sadness because of her circumstances. 

Even when she wasn’t looking in the right place, Jesus came to find her.  He found her and said that if she continued looking in these same places, she would continue to find an empty well.  But he promised that if she drank of his living water, that she would never thirst again. 

What dry wells are you turning to over and over?  May you hear the voice of Jesus saying to you today, “Stop turning to wells that will always be dry and empty for you.  Thirst for me and I will never leave you thirsty.  My well overflows to meet each and every one of yours needs.  Let me find you and fill you with new life.”

Live True Reflections Testimonies

Vital SignsCurrently at Daybreak we are digging into a series called, Vital Signs.  As a part of this series, we are exploring the importance of vulnerability.

If you have ever attended a True Reflections class, you would know that we speak about vulnerability a great deal.  We believe that it is vital to be vulnerable with yourself and with others for the sake of a healthy recovery process.

During Sunday services on January 22, 2012, two previous participants from True Reflections will be giving their live testimonies.  They will both share about their struggle to be vulnerable, yet how they found a safe place in True Reflections to be open about their experience with an eating disorder.  Their stories will be encouraging and inspirational.  Hearing their stories may also challenge you to take your next step of vulnerability towards experiencing the hope and healing that only Jesus Christ can offer.

If you are interested in attending Daybreak to hear these amazing, live testimonies of changed lives, you can find location and time information below.

If you are interested in registering for a True Reflections class, please fill out a registration form found under the About Us tab.  We are running classes for this spring from January 31st through April 24th from 7-9pm at Daybreak Church (Gettysburg Pike Campus).  For more information about True Reflections, please contact Robin Kaplin at robin.kaplin@daybreakweb.com.
