ANGRY BIRDS


8/6/2012 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

I'm sure most people have heard of the app Angry Birds. If not, it's a silly game for your phone or computer where you shoot wingless, feetless birds from a slingshot in order to destroy the mean green pigs who stole their eggs. Although it's a cute game, it sends a little notice: if cute little birds can get angry when something is taken from them...

KEEP IT SIMPLE


3/6/2012 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

Have you ever been impressed by the thickness of a book?  Have you ever seen a math problem so complicated that you thought "whoever solves this must be smart".  Have you ever heard a sermon that was so "deep" that you walked away thinking it must have been very spiritual, even though you didn't have any idea what it ...

WHAT DID YOU SAY


1/31/2012 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

 One of the most powerful things given to man is his ability to speak.  We are created in God's likeness and therefore have the ability to create things with our words.  In Mark 11:23,24 Jesus was showing his disciples that they could move a mountain if they believed it and SPOKE IT.  Too many Christians do not take what they ...

SELFISH BRAT Part 2


1/20/2012 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

Selfishness is something we all have to deal with. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:11; "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside."
We laugh at little kids when they cry to get their way. But it's not so

SELFISH BRAT Part 1


1/20/2012 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

I've always been amazed when I hear people say: "this isn't what I signed up for". I've wondered, 'what were you thinking when you signed up or decided to get involved? That it would be easy? Most people get involved with projects or relationships for the wrong reasons. It's usually to make themselves feel better or look better, but ...

2012: AWAKEN MY FAITH


12/28/2011 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

Looking back over 2011, no doubt most of us were inspired, challenged, hopeful, & disappointed.  No matter what words you use to describe 2011, we should be aware of this one fact - we haven't arrived yet.  I am still learning how to be a better pastor, friend, relative, leader, etc...  But most importantly, I am still learning ...

KNOW THE WHY, NOT JUST THE WHAT


12/16/2011 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

When people come to a crossroad in life, they often seek God for what direction to go.  I have found that in most cases of my life when I ask God to tell me which way to go or which decision I should make, His answer is rarely "yes or no" or "left or right".  It's usually not that simple.  God doesn't just want to...

JUST BREATHE


12/7/2011 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

Sometimes in the middle of trying to figure out how God is going to bring your answer or miracle that you are needing, you need to stop and take a deep breath.  Satan tries so hard to make us believe that the harder we pray, work, stress, worry etc.. the faster the answer will come.  NOT TRUE!!  Worry, stress, or fear are the biggest...

SLOW DOWN


12/1/2011 by Chris & Rachel Cutliffe

 How many times have we tried to hurry what God is doing?  If you're like me, it's been many.  Why are we in such as rush?  Are we so impatient that we can't even wait for God?  If God is taking His time with something, it's probably for a good reason and that reason is usually to help us.  God in NEVER slowing things ...

Thankful


11/25/2011 by Admin Admin

 Philippians 4:6   "6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God"  During this time of Thanksgiving, we should remember that without God, we would have nothing.  So when you pray to Him, try to remember to first be THANKFUL for ...

ALL THINGS NEW


11/22/2011 by Admin Admin

 Like most people, I enjoy new things.  It doesn't have to be something expensive, just something new.  I purchased a new pair of sneakers the other day and loved taking them out of the box and putting them on.  They were less the $20 on sale but that didn't matter - they were new.  I'm guessing we like new things because ...
