"As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus charged them to tell no one what they had seen. ~ Mark 9:9
The Sunday preceding Lent is called "Transfiguration Sunday," as Jesus was transfigured with Moses and Elijah. He took with him Peter, James, and John, who were amazed beyond words at what they beheld. But Jesus did not stay on the mountain. He came down to the real world of trials that would define his life until his death on the cross. It would be trials of suffering,betrayal, and denial. Lent is a season reflective of Christ's day's subsequent to the Transfiguration...We've all been on the top of the mountain, but frequently find ourselves in the valley "after the mountain." Life is filled with valleys. High moments never last. It's how we respond to the low moments that define our lives.

"We know that in everything God works for good for those who love him who are called according to his purpose." Romas 8:28
Have you every wondered why some people always find more joy, more meaning, more fulfillment, and are always on top of things while others seem unable to meet the everyday challenges of life? Would you like to begin living a more victorious, aspiring life? Sunday's message will share three mportant BUILDING BLOCKS to finding the blessings God intended for you, rather than being bogged down in the quagmire of things that distract and destroy.

"And in this matter I give you my advice; it is best for you now to complete what a year ago you began not only to do, but to desire, so that your readiness in desiring it may be mateche by your completing it out of what you have. ~II Corinthians 8: 10-11
You know the old adage,"The best laid plans of men and mice." This is the time of year we make plans for the coming days. Unfortunately, some of the plans made, "FLAME OUT." But how does a person keep the mission moving forward? Actually, the Bible has a formula for doing just that and as we follow the formula, we find ourselves completing our mission. As Paul told the Corinthians.
