Throughout this series, we'll take a deeper look at the truths we need to personally remember and apply to our lives daily.

Do you have any relationship in life, either with people or things (maybe work), which you depend on for benefits and/or sustenance? Do those relationships also sometimes come with a lot of drama and trouble? In today's message we'll look at a character in a similar situation and consider some questions we can ask to help get us through tough times. Next time you find yourself between a rock and a hard place, ask yourself: "Based on my past experiences, my current circumstances, and my future hopes and dreams, what is the wise thing for me to do?"
David spares saul - oct 29, 2017
Are there times in your life when you've had opportunities to make compromises to get ahead, but not making those compromises continues to hold you back? What are the consequences one way or another? In today's message we'll revisit some stories from the Old Testament about David, being chased around the country by king Saul, and the opportunities he had to make compromises. We'll see how he exercised patience, faith, and honor amid his desperate circumstances and find encouragement applying these qualities in our own lives.

How have you been reacting enjoying this series so far? Hopefully you've been finding encouragement as well as ideas for how to engage challenging circumstances. In today's message we'll hear some raw emotion from one of the Bible's most familiar characters. David was a man after God's own heart, and yet he still experienced a lot of adversity. From his story we'll learn that it's okay to not be okay, but it's not okay to stay that way, because Jesus wants something greater for each of us.

Pastor Ryan Blaylock
What do you do when you get caught or exposed doing something you're not supposed to? Do you continue to argue, or do you own up to your decisions and the consequences? In today's message, we'll see how King David handled a similar situation. Ultimately we'll learn that he didn't argue or try to justify his actions. Instead, he faced the mirror, took ownership of his decisions, and admitted "I'm the man!"

If your life and circumstances have changed over time, do you remember the way you used to be? How did you get from the way you were to the way you are now? Today's message will give us some practical encouragement when we find ourselves stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Pastor Jeff Blaylock
How many of us have things in our lives that are not the way they should be? How many of us desperately want those things to be made right? Today's message is all about restoration as we continue to look at the life of king David. In this message we'll hear the joy in David's heart as he responds to God restoring him. We'll discover that this same joy, hope, strength, and contentment can be experienced in our own lives as we learn to rely on God in the middle of our own challenges.
