Messy. Jesus. Family

Social media is flooded with posts that are portraying the highlights – what “everyone” wants to see to get more views, more likes, more comments and shares. The danger in this is that many look to these numbers to find their value and worth. Technology has made it to where we can edit things in such a way that shows only what we want people to see. It can be messy.
Thanksgiving Day will be here in just a couple of weeks. For many this is a welcomed time to be with family and friends and sit around the table and enjoy time together. Others may feel overwhelmed and anxious with all the things that go into getting ready for a house full of guests or even being a guest. Either way, being “real” with those around us as we gather on Thanksgiving Day can be yes, messy.
A separation happens when we are not real with one another. Distance is created. As a follower of Christ, we are called to be disciples that make disciples. We are to be relational and come alongside one another. This requires work and getting out of our comfort zones. We must be real with ourselves, those around us, and most importantly with our Heavenly Father. When we turn to Jesus, He helps us with all our mess. Philippians 4:13 – I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Here at HFC we understand that life can be messy. We also know that Jesus is the answer to all of our mess. And we want you to know that no matter where you may have been or where you are now, you are welcome to be a part of the HFC Family.
