God is working to write a beautiful story with your life, but it doesn’t feel that way all the time does it? Instead of feeling fulfilled, we feel empty, alone, and broken. We feel that we are too broken and too messed up for God to be able to fix. The truth is while you might find yourself in an unexpected circumstance, God’s plan hasn’t fallen apart. In this week’s message, Pastor Ken uses the Incredible 2 as an example of how life can take unexpected turns and shows from the Bible 4 ways that you can deal with these difficult times of life.

Incredibles 2: Mr. Incredibles has to stay at home while his wife fights crime

We all know what it’s like to be in a stagnant season of life. 

Moses Ending: He leads God’s people out of Israel; Most Popular Jewish Figure

Exodus 2:11-15a 11 When Moses had grown up (40 yrs), he went out to visit his own people, the Hebrews, and he saw how hard they were forced to work (had compassion). During his visit, he saw an Egyptian beating one of his fellow Hebrews. 12 After looking in all directions to make sure no one was watching, Moses killed the Egyptian and hid the body in the sand. 13 The next day, when Moses went out to visit his people again, he saw two Hebrew men fighting. “Why are you beating up your friend?” Moses said to the one who had started the fight. (Again, he’s looking after his people) 14 The man replied, “Who appointed you to be our prince and judge? Are you going to kill me as you killed that Egyptian yesterday?” Then Moses was afraid, thinking, “Everyone knows what I did.” 15 And sure enough, Pharaoh heard what had happened, and he tried to kill Moses. But Moses fled from Pharaoh and went to live in the land of Midian.

Moses doesn’t stop being the person God’s called him to be. Even when his circumstances change.

In The Incredibles,  he went from fighting crime to staying at home with his kids so his wife could fight crime. Because it was better for their family that he stayed home and she went out as the superhero. He still had all these superpowers but he couldn’t use them.

Exodus 2:20-22 20“Where is he?” their father asked. “Why did you leave him there? Invite him to come and eat with us.” 21 Moses accepted the invitation, and he settled there with him. In time, Reuel gave Moses his daughter Zipporah to be his wife. (Reuel – friend of God) 22 Later she gave birth to a son, and Moses named him Gershom, for he explained, “I have been a foreigner in a foreign land.”

In his mind, the exciting life is over.

God is still at work in the ordinary moments. 

James 5:7-8 Dear brothers and sisters, be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return. Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the fall and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You, too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.

2 Timothy 6:6 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.

If you can be content in any season of life, you are wealthy. If you can find joy in any circumstance, you are rich. If you can God in any season, you are mature. Because you know that God is still at work. 

1 Timothy 6:7-8 7 After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.


Where do you need to find contentment? Trust that God is still at work, even if he’s quiet?

Be faithful, even when it’s not exciting. Be obedient, even when you’re waiting. Be content, even when if you want change. 

The true test of faith is how much you trust God, even when life isn’t where you want it to be. Even when it’s slow and boring. Faith is knowing that God is still at work.
