Winter Blues can hit hardest right smack dab in the middle of our closest relationships. Our unhealthy relational patterns create brokenness and pain for those we least want to hurt - yet we get stuck repeating the same cycles of dysfunction. Join us this weekend in worship as Pastor Mike helps us do the hard work of prioritizing our relationships.

MONDAY: Ephesians 4:17-32
Paul’s challenge for us was to be made new in the attitude of our minds. Invite the Holy Spirit to renew your mind, and ask for God’s grace to live more fully into who God created you to be.

TUESDAY: Ephesians 5:1-20
Paul is describing what it looks like to live as God’s child. He repeatedly challenges us to give thanks. How could you give God thanks today? How could you thank your spouse or a close friend?

WEDNESDAY: Proverbs 4:23-27
What would it look like to guard your heart? In your singleness? In your marriage? Spend the remainder of your time “giving careful thought to the paths for your feet.”

THURSDAY: Proverbs 5
We have the freedom to make choices that bring life or death to our relationships. Evaluate your choices over the last week. Are you sowing health? If you are married, how could you better prioritize your spouse?

FRIDAY: 1 Corinthians 13
Paul talks about things we should do and not do to cultivate love in this chapter. Allow the Holy Spirit to highlight one practice to do, and one to love more like God loves.

SATURDAY: 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
YOU were bought at a price. You are valuable. God adores you. Meditate on verses 19-20.
