Leave Your Rust in the Dust
Floods wash over our lives...the water doesn’t stay forever, but do you let the residue of the storm take up residence in your heart? Is there rust and corrosion as a result of hard times, or do you come out shining like pure gold?
I don’t know about you, but when the dust settles on my life, I’d like it to be said that I handled life’s floods and fires with grace and godliness…simply golden.

Experiencing life's challenges can be…challenging. There’s no denying it and no one's exempt from it, but everyone is given an opportunity when life throws its curveballs. What is your response?

As we look at 2017 with a long list of plans, goals and dreams, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Examine the motives, intentions and attitudes of your heart. Are you faded and jaded, or renewed and washed clean? Do you have some housecleaning to do before the New Year?
If you find yourself in that place, it’s easy to get rid of the rust, the stains, the muck and the build-up of life that hides in the corners of our hearts and taints our perspective and focus. Ask God for a makeover! Invite Him into the places that hurt and ask Him to heal your heart. Let’s get golden!

Just a little fun song to lighten your load. :)
