Week 5

Take the First Bold Step

2 Thessalonians 3:6-15

Every journey starts with a first step forward. You will not enter a new season by standing still. When the time is right, every new season is initiated by a bold step forward. A marriage journey is initiated by the bold step of an engagement proposal. A college degree is initiated by the bold step of application and enrollment. A commitment to follow Christ is celebrated by the bold step of public baptism. Often we stop at the border of a new season, reluctant to commit ourselves to the implications of a bold step, but the journey cannot start without it.

Week 1

Quiet Your Soul to Listen

The very first step as you consider moving into a new season is to stop and listen. This seems simple enough, but it is often the most difficult step to take in a world filled with noise and distractions. There is an art to quieting our soul and listening to the still small voice. Who has God uniquely created you to be? What is the essence of your calling? How has God been preparing you for this new season? What is God whispering to you that you must quiet yourself to hear?
