More In This Series

“YES CAN DO: How to Live with an Attitude”
www.newperceptions.tv

  • Mark 16:1-6
    • “Who will roll the stone away?”
    • Charles Swindoll: “This may shock you, but I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my successes or failures, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances or my position. Attitude is that ‘single string’ that keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there’s no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.” (https://record.adventistchurch.com/2018/02/16/why-i-dont-go-to-church)
    • The magnetic North of Holy Scripture always bends its needle to YES CAN DO.
  • Philippians 4:13
  • “For I CAN DO all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
  • 2 Corinthians 1:19-20—“For all the promises of God in Him are YES.”
  • Psalm 33:6, 9—“By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. . . . For He spoke and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.”
  • David Bentley Hart: “I have strength for all things in him who gives me the power.” (New Testament Philippians 4:13)
  • 2 Corinthians 1:20-22—“God has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.”
  • “I CAN DO all things through the Holy Spirit who strengthens me.”
  • The Upward Look: “I beseech [you] to seek now for the greatest blessing Heaven can bestow—the Holy Spirit. If in faith you seek for a greater measure of God’s Spirit, you will be constantly taking it in and breathing it out. Daily you will receive a fresh supply. Your everyday experience will be enriched by the rich current of God’s love. Before you lie vast fields of truth, vast sources of power. Let the daily prayer be, ‘Take from us what Thou dost choose to take, but withhold not Thy Holy Spirit from us.’ We must have the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (143)
  • Philippians 2:5 NASB: “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus.”
  • Christ’s Object Lessons: “You need not go to the ends of the earth for wisdom, for God is near. It is not the capabilities you now possess or ever will have that will give you success. It is that which the Lord CAN DO for you. We need to have far less confidence in what man CAN DO and far more confidence in what God CAN DO for every believing soul. He longs to have you reach after Him by faith. He longs to have you expect great things from Him. He longs to give you understanding in temporal as well as in spiritual matters. He can sharpen the intellect. He can give tact and skill. Put your talents into the work, ask God for wisdom, and it will be given you.” (146)

New Traffic Pattern

The Health & Wellness Center construction work has kicked into high gear this week with the removal of pavement on the south side of the PMC traffic circle and the addition of fill and grading. New sanitary lines and water lines have also been installed under the PMC circle.

Starting Sabbath, March 24, there is a new traffic pattern as you drive past the church. Please note all posted signage and the new 4-way stop. 

  • There will now be a two-way road on the north side of the circle. This will be the new route for all traffic heading east and west on West Campus Circle Drive. Be advised the road will be rough through this area until the new pavement is complete. For details on traffic flow, see the map here.
  • West Campus Circle Drive at the south side of PMC will be barricaded in order to complete curb construction. East- and west-bound traffic will route to the north, which will temporarily require closure of the drop-off area on the south side of PMC. There will be signs at the usual drop-off area directing traffic to the parking lot side of PMC for drop-offs. Please respect these directional signs to assist in smooth traffic flow at the south side of PMC.
  • The intersection at University Boulevard and West Campus Circle Drive will be a four-way stop during construction. Please be aware of and yield to pedestrians crossing the roads in these areas.
