Epic Fail - Or Not   Sunday, April 9, 2017
I spoke at my church tonight.  Presented the Easter story with a magic trick.  From the perspective of speaking to my (gracious) church family, it went well.  I shared how much Jesus loves us and what He suffered just to forgive us.  I love my church family.

From the perspective of a magician, it was an epic fail.  The trick, which builds throughout the whole lesson didn't work.  We all laughed about it and went on but magically speaking...UGH!

If you are loving God and living for Him, nothing is an epic fail.  Romans 8:28 tells us that all things, even failing magic tricks, work together for our good.  That's comforting to know that God is in control, sees the big picture that we don't see, and He's got our back.

I'll be practicing, (and have already), for tomorrow's attempt at this trick.  I pray it works.  But I pray foremost that I can practice my love for Christ so that Romans 8:28 is in effect for me.

For now...what exactly did I do wrong with this trick?  Hmm?
