You’ve probably heard someone say it’s important to be authentic to who you really are. You should be the person you were designed to be and not try to be someone else. Authenticity is the only thing that matters.
It’s hard to disagree. I mean who wants to be around a fake person?
Have you ever been asked a difficult question and weren’t sure how to answer? Should you walk away or should you wade in?
Being a pastor I find that I get asked a lot of difficult questions. Some questions are heart-breaking like, “Will I go to hell for being divorced?” (In case you’re wondering…No.)

Don’t you love YouTube? I mean you can learn how to do just about anything by watching a video on YouTube.
I’ve learned how to do small home repairs, car repairs, hacks for my phone, bee keeping tips and tricks, even product reviews. It really is an amazing place to learn from others who share the same passions you do.
Everyone of us have been through at least one storm that you thought at the time would bring you down.

Would you agree with this statement? — “Life is a series of ups and downs.”
If you are like 99.99% of people you agree with that sentiment. You’ve had some amazing moments (ups), but you’ve also experienced some painful ones (downs).
Ever seen an old building that has lost its shine and wondered why someone doesn’t do something about it?
One reason few people do something about it is because starting from scratch is way easier than working with something that has already tried other purposes.
Ever had a season where it seems one bad thing after another keeps happening?
It can get to a point where you’re afraid to even answer the phone because you think it will be more bad news.
