Empty Promises to His Promises

Have you seen these photos on Facebook that ask you to do something? I saw one that had sharks in a lobby and it said, "click on photo, hit like, type the number 2, then watch what happens" Guess what? Nothing happened. DOH! What is remarkable it to see the several other thousand people that did the same thing. Isn't that so much like what the enemy does with you and so in our life? We are given empty promises of hope and satisfaction only to be disappointed with nothing but emptiness. So often I would look for happiness is so many things thinking, "this is it! This is the thing that will bring me happiness. A new car, new clothes, house, even a relationship." Yeah for a while that thirst will be satisfied but in the end apart from Christ, the result is emptiness. I love how Rick Warren puts it, “What happens outwardly in your life is not as important as what happens inside you." Thru CR I have learned even more that true 'happiness' comes from the Father. The Beatitudes in Matthew 5 show us that we are 'happy' (blessed) when we commit our entire life to Him. This is the kind of happiness that does not require outside circumstances to happen. If you are searching for happiness and keep getting duped by the enemy with false & empty promises, please join me in trying something different. The Fathers way is so much more rewarding and fulfilling. Make 2013 a year of change for you in your life. Celebrate Recovery is an amazing tool to help you find that happiness in your life. Happy New Year friend! Rodney Holmstrom
