When Life's Not Working Part 1

Today I watched a message from Bob Merritt at Eagle Brook Church. It is a two part message that has to do with his new (now year old) book, "When Life's Not Working."

Link you'll need to watch the message:

Bible Verses:
Isaiah 61:3 "Beauty from ashes, gladness from despair." 
James 3:2 "We all stumble in many ways."
James 4:10 "Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up."
Ephesians 4:26 "In your anger, don't sin."
2 Thessalonians 3:11-13 "... I command you to get to work and never get tired of doing good." 
Proverbs 27:6 "Faithful are the wounds of a friend."
Colossians 3:13 Paul said, "Learn to overlook each others faults, and forgive the person who offends you." 

Signs your life is not working:
1. There's a PATTERN of RELATIONAL failure. 
2. There's a lack of PURPOSE or PROGRESS in your life.
3. There's a desire to ESCAPE your REALITY.

What do you need to do? 
Do what Jim Collins says, FACE the BRUTAL FACTS.

Question to think about: Is there anything you are trying to accomplish of worth or work towards that's worthwhile?

Challenge throughout the next week:
How honest are you being with the brutal facts? How would you grade yourself in these 4 areas?
