This Week at JMPC 5,17.2020

If you have ever suffered from insomnia, you know how frustrating it can be. Wide awake in
the middle of the night. Anxious that you will be tired and cranky the next day. So, you get
up and turn on the TV to see if you can find something relaxing that will make you drowsy.
And then … you see it. An ad for a drug that will put you to sleep. Soft, soothing music
surrounds the image of a pretty woman with a whimsical smile laying down on a bed with
her eyes closed. Immediately we jump to the next morning. The woman is waking up with
that same smile, arms stretched over her head, ready for the start of a delightful day. And
you say to yourself, “I gotta get me some of that!” But then comes the second part of the
commercial. The fastest talking human being you have ever heard starts telling you about
the potential side effects.
Day-time drowsiness, dizziness, feeling hungover, problems with memory or concentration, anxiety, depression, nervous feeling, headache, nausea, stomach pain, aggression, agitation, changes in behavior, thoughts of hurting yourself, hearing or seeing things.
Wait … what? I might go to sleep, but the possible side effects might be worse than a few
sleepless nights. Do you take the pills and hope that the side effects won’t happen? Or is that just
wishful thinking? That is the difference between “hope” in the form of hoping for things that
might or might not happen and “hope” in the promises of God. Hope in the promises of God is a
certainty that they will happen without any potential harm or failure. No fast-talking disclaimers.
Pastor Jeff will explore this Sunday May 17 when he preaches “How does God give us hope?” at 9:30 on Facebook Live which will be recorded and also posted on YouTube later in theday. Tune in. (Is that what we call it?)
