Using the lyrics from today's hits to examine what it means to find God's purpose and direction for your life
Memory Verse: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
Blank Space (Taylor Swift) – Each of us have a blank space within us. This is a space that only God can fill, giving us direction and purpose. Genesis 28:10-22, Jacob Encounters God
Royals (Lorde) – We may not be royalty, but God has a great purpose for our lives. When we accept Jesus as our king, he makes us part of the royal family. Romans 8, Heirs With Christ
Brave (Sara Bareillas) – The world is constantly pressuring us to conform to its ways. But God can use those who are brave enough to stand out from the crowd. Daniel 3, The Fiery Furnace
Take Me To Church (Hozier) – To find direction, we need to spend time with people who have been where we want to go. This gathering of people seeking God is what we call the church. Acts 2:42-47, The Fellowship of the Believers
Happy (Pharrel Williams) – Not knowing our purpose can cause us anxiety. But we are called foremost to praise God with joy and happiness. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Instructions, Psalm 150, Praise the Lord
