Living out front: Mountain
God of wonders beyond our galaxy
You are holy the universe declares your majesty
Then sings my soul my Savior God to thee how great thou art

God is our help - Let the mountains shake
Be still and know

You are amazing God! You placed the stars in the sky and you know them name
Indescribable uncontainable you see the depths of my heart and you love me the same

Mrs. DeSilva and Number one daughter Miss Jessica Children's story: Don't worry be Happy Now.
Paul said dont worry
Where is God when bad things happen?
Paul was in a boat in a storm. He said don't worry. Not one hair was harmed. God's goodness always Wins. He is always closer than Miss Jessica.

The lady with the red shirt said to say Hi! To Martha.

Hosanna in the highest. Break my heart for what breaks yours.

Pastor Del:
The importance of understanding Christ.
Phil 3:10-11 I will experience the resurrection from the dead.
How we respond to the dark moments in life determines our approach to Christ. We have a culture of pain avoidance. Frodo was ready to give up when Sam told him shadows and darkness must pass.

Summit leadership conference in Chicago - Willow Creek did a survey - Reveal Project
1. When do You grow spiritually? When Suffering
How to handle adversity - Charles Stanley
If it were up to me I'd rather hide than let people know I'm suffering
Christ has brought us into his love.
How can I speak to the suffering? We have seen our Olympic champions in pain and joy.
To suffer and say this is a glorius time is a mystery
Derek Redman finished his race in spite of major pain. His dad came to help him finish. Every one stood to cheer him to the finish line. He was a true Olympian.
Finish your race No matter the pain. God will redeem you in the pain. Finish finish the race.
Live up front with your faith. the father runs across the finish line with us.
On Easter week end we commemorate dark Good Friday - what happened Saturday? Letting go. Reflect as you suffer through the Saturday. Sunday is coming: you will not be disappointed.
Jesus crossed the divide for us.
You are not alone. Step out on the front porch.
