  1. Church today was soo amazing!!! Growth tracks was sooo GREAT!! I am so grateful to hear and be refreshed on my pastors’ heart behind all we do at chooselife church!!
    Jumpstart // it’s not what I know that brings blessings into my life… it’s what I DO!!!
    Looking unto Jesus brings endurance, passion and wisdom into my life!
    Stop looking at you and trust Him to live through you!
    You are fit in your faith when you are fit in your perspective!

    2nd service // the love of God isn’t rude but it is pointed!
    You can’t go against His plan and be a winner!
    There’s always a bigger price to pay when you don’t obey!

  2. I’m so grateful for this months series teaching on Love Life’s Foundation. Here are my highs:Jump Start/What will I do with this Word I hear today? This is like watching someone else working out, but I have to go home and do something with what I hear, then do it .They are showing me what to do! Looking unto Jesus ! I have a part to play, the ball is in my court. Our goal is progress! Looking unto Jesus will give you passion. Things that are hard are not from God! I will stop looking at me and trust Him! When we are looking at others you’re in pride. Keeping my eyes on Jesus is where my Victory is! 1st/ If I don’t locate myself I will never know how good my Life can really be! Gods Love is to be Sweet and Kind, I will think about what I’m about to say , before I say it! Carnal has NO good !God is Love, Agape)/ human love is selfish, self gain!We May have a Love issue more than a Faith issue! My Faith will not work without Love! What You know is who you think you are, what you do is who you really are! 3rd/God won’t fix us, but He will tell us how to get fixed! Agape Love is not moved by anything, it just loves!!!!! 🙌♥️

    1. I really liked when Pastor Dean said this, we don’t have a faith issue in many cases, but a love issue. This really helped me prioritize my love walk even over my faith walk…like almost getting in position to walk by faith, not always assuming I am; but checking my heart daily and not allowing anything funky!!

  3. I really enjoyed service this morning! Here are my highs:
    1st Service Offering// God will show up for those who are expecting Him!

    1st Service Message// *The further I go the more I need Him.
    * Don’t be so enamored with your growth that you think you won’t fall!
    * You missing the loving in correction is on you!
    * Before love changes anything it must change you!
    * Your senses become less dominant when you are expecting right!
    * Like faith, Love is now!
    * What you know, is who you think you are, what you do is who you really are! 🔥

  4. I was in 2nd and I really liked how Pastor Dean was led by the Spirit to make this service very intentional for those who were there; I am excited to listen to 1st on the app also!!

    1st service//Based off of the woman who was caught in adultery; when you are sincere you have to then follow His instructions.
    When we repent forgiveness is easy but restoration requires that we follow His directions.
    His love demands obedience…His touch should have changed everything,..
    There is always a bigger price to pay when you don’t obey!
    Those who continue to grow and do will continue to grow and do.
    You can’t fix people, but you can love them; you have to 1. see them like God does 2. you can’t be their God.
    On the sermon opener I saw myself in the woman caught in adultery with scraps and cuts, wounds from others but I saw myself reaching towards Him and receiving healing once again…it was very precious..

    I really really liked Growth Track too!
    And spending time with the teenagers in Core.

  5. I’m so thankful for church and the ability to be here and hear . Gosh it keeps me so grounded !!! I’m so grateful

    Jumpstart //
    Coming to jumpstart is like watching someone else work out … I’m given the tools but I have to do the work !
    2020 is the year I go home and am INTENTIONAL with what I Hear and I will train my children to do the same.

    Others don’t cast me away . I disqualify my own self ! I will stay on my flesh to submit to the word !

    Looking unto Jesus gives me ENDURANCE! If I want to quit I’m looking at the WRONG thing! Gosh that challenged me !! Everytime I want to quit I need to realize my eyes are off of my savior !!!
    Get the right perspective with eyes on HIM!! Not on circumstances !

    I can’t ignore the enemy or the contradiction! I have to address and and replace it with perspective on Jesus !!

    Don’t be fulfilled to watch someone else’s life !! Live with passion in YOUR life!

    If I don’t know what to do my eyes are on the wrong thing … get WISDOM from HIM!!

    “ the spirit of God is leading me and I am experiencing clarity “ YES!!!!!

    I loved the analogy of giving my child my checkbook and bills and expecting them to figure it out !!! I refuse to figure out my life!

    When you look at yourself you always open the door to shame and fear. Stop looking at you and trust HIM to live thru you!!

    Your flesh won’t get on board with this! You have to make a quality decision and keep making it !!!

    1st
    You take care of your relationship with him and train your children correctly and he will always take care of them!

    I must yield to his love ON PURPOSE!

    “Father I yield to your love and I won’t allow my senses to rule how I see anyone including myself “
    Before love changes anything , it must change me!

    I have to choose to believe that I have been given the nature of God as well as his LOVE!

    God gave me his love bc human love is incapable of loving correctly!

    To love God is to do his word . There is no higher honor than loving him by DOING his word.

    If something didn’t happen that the word says should happen, then somewhere there’s a glitch IN ME!

    When you walk in love you can expect :
    You faith to be effective
    Your senses to become less dominant

    **what you know is who you think you are , what you DO is who you really are !!!

    Dang so good !!!

    1. JULES!!! I liked the Checkbook analogy so much too! So good and what a great word picture! I can imagine SJ looking at bills or statements and hoping to be able to figure them out! I’m with you-I refuse to try to figure out my own life! 🙅🏽‍♀️

  7. The first service of 2020 was amazing, And Just what I needed to hear! ❤️

    Jumpstart/

    Soooo, I’m one of the ones who make it to JumpStart occasionally-ok like maybe twice last year, but faithfully listened to it on Monday mornings on my way to work. Not good enough anymore! 🙅🏽‍♀️
    What PC said about how just showing up and listening or in my case, just listening to the message, doesn’t make me a doer-But instead, just listening has caused me to puff up with pride, because “I heard it!”! I don’t want to be that person just watching others go hard and train hard while I work up a sweat that doesn’t do anything for me! 😥 (First Spanking!)

    So many times the thought of just quitting crosses my mind-in so many areas! Especially in my eating! It’s like you start the week eating healthy and bam, Friday you devour a whole pizza! Ok not all of it but a half! I have given up so many times by looking to my circumstance/(food) instead of at the Father for his endurance! For the love of Jesus-I can’t even eat healthier without him! ☺️

    And that’s where the lethargic/selfish people statement whooped me again! 😥

    If I would quit being so lazy about meal planning, lazy about being active, and lazy about shopping trips to the grocery store-maybe, just maybe I’d have a better grip on this healthy eating…Lethargic people are selfish people! And not looking to him will give me the endurance I need to succeed!

    IN and FROM the FATHER I get and my Endurance! 2020 will be a year of ENDURANCE!! 🏃🏽‍♀️Hallelujah! 🙌🏽

    1st Service/

    Oh my goodness-so good! I think I cried like 5 times during service!!! 🙊

    “If you know where you stand-it is harder for you to fall!” Dude!!!! Why can’t you know where you stand already, you are so standing with the Father-he’s like right there, STAND UP when the enemy comes at you and makes you think you’re gonna fall-do something on purpose and stay STANDING!!!

    Faith works by love, so without love as your fuel, faith cannot work-oh my goodness!!! If I’m not pleasing the Father by walking in faith, how am I loving him and others? Faith doesn’t work without Love! ❤️

    What you know is who you think you are, but what you do is you really are!!!!

    I couldn’t help but think like, “Oh wow, who am I and who do I want to be?”
    That statement has left me searching my thoughts and actions like never before! Especially at the turn of a new year.

    Both services wrapped up, this so what I got:

    In 2020, God’s LOVE that fuels my FAITH, will cause me to STAND and ENDURE in every area of my life, In Jesus name! ❤️

  8. Jump start// problems skew your perspective.

    If I lack faith, passion, or wisdom I’m looking at the wrong thing.

    Service highs// what you know is who you think you are. What you do is who you are.

    Those who continue to grow and do will continue to grow and do.

    You can’t fix people. You love people.

    Yielding and submitting to God’s love makes my faith effective.

  9. Jumpstart//What you hear doesn’t bring manifestation, what you DO brings manifestation!! When I look at HIM, I will not be pulled in other directions!

    3rd Service//And again, being a doer!! DOING the Word proves my love for Him. His love cannot change others through me, if I don’t first allow His love to change ME!!! I will embrace His love, so that my Faith will work in my life! There will come an end to my human love…but not to HIS!! I will show others HIM-HIS love and not mine…

    Graduation was soooo special! So grateful to be a part of a vision that raises up disciples!! ***********Who took growth track yesterday?! Soo excited for the steps available for people to be connected with what matters most!!! BEST CHURCH FAMILY EVER!!!

    Problems skew your perspective!!!! Some of the things I’ve considered “problems” are not even a big deal but I’ve allowed them to skew my reality and my life!! I will keep my eyes on Jesus now self or circumstances!!

    2nd service
    Love demands we rely totally on His strength!!
    Love not Faith is the reason most of us don’t enjoy what belongs to us!!!
    I read 1 Corinthians 13 and I just realized the areas I need to grow in and focus on!!! I want to really evaluate and grow in love and not be so focused on something else and realize how valuable loving (really loving!!!) is!!!
