The Power of The Blessing
I want to talk to you today about The Power of the Blessing. When you honor God with your life, there is a blessing he puts on you that gives you an advantage. It causes you to rise up when circumstances are trying to push you down. You will recover from an illness when the expert said you wouldn't. You will accomplish dreams that looked impossible. It wasn't just your talent, your skill, determination. There is a force behind you fighting your battles, opening doors you couldn't open, bringing the right people. Those weren't just good breaks. That's the blessing on your life. The blessing will cause you to prosper when others are struggling. The blessing will bring promotion when you weren't next in line. The blessing will cause people to be good to you that don't even like you. The scripture says in Malachi, when we give our tithes and offerings, God will pour out a blessing that we don't have room to receive. It doesn't say "Blessings," plural. It says "Blessing," singular. When you have the blessing, then all kinds of blessings will come. You won't have room to receive all the good things God has in store. When you face difficulties, the medical report, doesn't look good. You don't see how you could ever get out of debt, ever break the addiction. Ordinary people would complain. Ordinary people would be worried. https://sermons.love/joel-osteen/3621-joel-osteen-the-power-of-the-blessing.html

ARE MILLENNIALS REJECTING THEIR RELIGION?
The church has faced consistent struggles over the past centuries, and one particular struggle may cause a future epidemic. Research indicates Millennials (individuals ages 22-37 in 2018) have been leaving the church in alarming numbers. One study shows 59 percent of millennials raised in church have already left. There have been worries members of the younger generation are turning to religions such as Islam or practicing atheism. However, CBN News recently reported on the growth of the "None" movement. "Nones" are people identifying themselves as having no religious affiliation. Many believe there is a God but have lost the desire to be affiliated with a religion. https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2019/january/an-epidemic-why-millennials-are-abandoning-the-church

SINS CAUSE NATURAL DISASTERS
What does the Bible say about hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters? Does the Bible give an answer to why the world is in such a mess if God is really in control? How could a God of love let masses of people die from killer hurricanes, catastrophic earthquakes, tsunamis, terrorist attacks and disease? Why such bizarre carnage and chaos? Is the world coming to an end? Is God pouring out his wrath upon sinners? Why is it so often the bloated bodies of the poor, the elderly, and the children that are strewn among the rubble? These are the questions most people are begging to be answered.https://www.bibleinfo.com/en/questions/does-god-send-killer-hurricanes-and-earthquakes

Signs It's Time to Quit Your Job
Everyone has a bad day at work now and then. You may furiously leave your office swearing you’ll put your two weeks notice in soon. But how do you know when you should give your job a second chance, or when it’s really time to quit? For one, you should always follow your gut. If you deeply hate your job, then you should absolutely start looking for other opportunities. If you’re on the fence, then you should open your eyes to feelings, thoughts, and happenings in your life that might point to the exit sign.https://www.thebalancecareers.com/signs-its-time-to-quit-your-job-2062292

Stealthing: Is not a trend, it's a crime
Stealthing, or removing a condom during sex without asking for a partner’s permission, has been all over the Internet recently. While survivors and providers have been talking about birth control sabotage for a while now, many people are hearing about stealthing for the first time. We want to be clear: stealthing is not a "sex trend." It’s a nonconsensual act that can increase the risk of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (a.k.a. STIs or STDs). Taking off a condom without your partner’s consent: Breaks the agreement (a.k.a. consent) of wearing a condom during sex Violates a partner’s trust and control of their body Increases their likelihood of contracting an STI Puts them at risk of becoming pregnant.https://www.heydoctor.com/learning-center/what-is-stealthing-and-why-is-it-wrong
