Make Space | What’s Driving Me?
Make Space: “What’s Driving Me?”
Exodus 16:1-29, 20:8, Leviticus 19:9-10, Deuteronomy 24:19, Matthew 6:31-34
Margin is the space between our CURRENT PACE and our LIMITS.
Our happiness in life is most often measured by the health of our RELATIONSHIPS not our PROSPERITY and not our ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
We FEAR something:
Not being SIGNIFICANT.
Our fear of not mattering ENOUGH has the potential to pull us away from the things that matter MOST.
Does God really care about my SCHEDULE? Does God really care about the PACE of my life?
