Message from Donn Start, Principal West Valley Campus

Yes, You Can Have It All

What is the most important human element to possess in life? Surely confidence, happiness, contentment, love, hope, and courage all rank high. But all of these come from a single source.

Confidence is faith in God and yourself. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).

Happiness and contentment arise from faith that God’s hand is in everything that happens. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.” Romans 8:28

Love is faith and trust in another. “The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love” (Galatians 5:6).

Hope is faith for the future. “Put your hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment” (1 Timothy 6:17).

Courage is faith that you can win. The Bible’s heroes “through faith conquered kingdoms…shut the mouths of lions…escaped the edge of the sword… (Hebrews 11:33-39).

My hope is that you experience each of these traits as a gift given to you by God the Father. Blessings to you on a Christ-filled Wednesday.
