Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 6

Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 6


December 9, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair concludes the series "Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down".

I want to end this series today by talking about the two words that make it impossible to live up when life is getting you down.

Those two words, and many of us use them, I have used them in the past, "If Only"...

Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 5


December 2, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair continues with Part 5 of the series "Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down".

In the course of this series, we have been looking at several emotional and psychological issues that transcended local culture and history. These ruinous societal issues have threatened to destroy people of faith down through the ages.

Today, we open the New Covenant to stud a woman who was closely associated with Jesus.  We will see that Martha had a problem with stress.  She was stressed out!  It caused her to have difficulty living up when life was getting her down.

After looking at David's Deepening Depression, The Bullying & Shaming of Hannah, and Elijah's Anxiety and Panic, today in our series "Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down" we look at The Explosive Anger of Moses.

Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 3

Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 3


November 18, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair continues with Part 3 of the series "Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down".

Many Christians believe that being a believer in Jesus entitles them to a life of happiness, prosperity, and success.  And if they are not living at the top of the world, either God is mad at them, or He's not real, or He's not doing His job.

That's how a lot of Christians feel, and that's what a lot of Christians believe.  They fail to understand that everyone faces forces inside and outside themselves that conspire to steal their happiness, kill their prosperity, and destroy their success.  These inward and outward forces attack with unrelenting force and threaten to tear down even the spiritually strong.

Today, we are going to turn to Elijah, one of the greatest Prophet's of the Old Testiment.  So great was Elijah that the Scripture tells us that He didn't even die, but he was transported to Heaven in a chariot of fire while still alive!  Elijah was one of the most POWERFUL figures in the Old Testiment, and yet he suffered from debilitating anxiety and fear, and even panic.

Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 2


November 11, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair continues with Part 2 of the series "Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down".

Today, we continue a series I that began last week entitled Living Up When Life Is Getting You Down.

What can I say about this series that isn't represented in the title?  I think the title says it all.  I also believe that
in spite of difficult circumstances that life throws at all of us, we, as God's people, are equipped by Him to be victorious, triumphant,
joyful, faith filled, and faithful servants of God.

Last week we looked at King David's Deepening Depression.  Even though David was a man after God's own heart, he suffered deep, deep depression.  
Today we're going to look at a great woman of the Old Testiment, her name is Hannah...
