We are in a series where the emphasis is learning to move forward in your journey of faith. Our goal is to emerge in the future that God has for us with a vision, passion, and purpose for becoming the best version of ourselves, which is of course the person God created us to be. It will not surprise you that for this to happen in your life you are going to have to consult with the Creator. The need to connect to God is essential for all of the things we are talking about to become a reality in your life. So today, we take an honest heartfelt look at ‘the art of the prayer.” Knowing how to pray more effectively is good advice for all of us…so get ready to deepen that walk of prayer today.
When we make the choice to move forward in our journey of faith we discover a freedom and joy that we have never known before. But as we grow deeper in and closer to Jesus, there is something else that happens, we begin to change. Yes, we really do change. The process is called transformation but God gives to us His degree or His stamp of approval to start living as we take Him at His Word.
Sometimes the greatest obstacle to us becoming all that God wants us to be is ourselves. We have already looked at how our attitude impacts our ability to move forward in faith, but there are just times that things get a little bit nutty. How do you control those moments when the negative thoughts and the negative words are threatening to take over in your life? Believe it or not, some help can be found in a passage of Scripture that we usually don’t slow down long enough to dig into, today we dig!
Here we are in a series trying to live forward and move into the future that God has for us. Today, we explore one of the biggest barriers to our being the best version of ourselves.
What is that barrier? Our attitude! Are we suggesting that our attitudes can be problematic? Positively!
This is an frank, fresh, and fulfilling reminder about the positive, hopeful, joyful optimism that is totally Biblical and can only be found in Christ alone. However, when we make the choice to follow Him, we have a life that is built on the truth, and the promises of God. That kind of life gives us the freedom to live positively optimistic.
Who wouldn’t want to live a life with purpose and passion? It sounds great, but as we have discovered in the “Gotta Go” series that as badly as people want to have a life worth living, too often we settle for less because we just aren’t willing to do what we need to do to make it work. Once again, we discover that God has a plan for our lives and if want to live it, we can…it is never too late. But to get moving we have to be willing to do what He tells us to do.
In Our Gotta Go series we are being challenged with becoming the best version of ourselves and moving forward with a vision for our life that comes from God. We have already discovered that God takes us outside our comfort zone and we have to be willing to risk. But if we are ever going to “wholly follow” Jesus there is something that we all have to wrestle with before we will ever be successful… we must wrestle with the “why?” One of the reasons that many stall out in their journey is because they don’t ever really discover what it takes to know the answer to “why?” – This study might just challenge you in ways you have never thought of before – let’s take The Journey to the Why together
Risk taking is an essential ingredient in stepping into the life that God has for you. In our Gotta Go series we are challenging ourselves with the truth we find in God’s Word on how to move forward in our journey of faith. Last week we looked specifically at some traps that we need to avoid that always trip us up when we get serious for Jesus. Today we look at some things that we have to make a priority in our world if we are ever going to get to the places and do the things that God has in store for us on our adventure of faith.
This “Gotta Go” series is all about embracing and living the vision that God has for us as we move toward the future. If we desire to move forward then we have to be prepared to take some faith based risks. This is never easy and far too often we live in a world that would tell us to “play it safe.” Here are some traps to avoid so that you might learn how to take God shaped risks and discover that life that God has for you.
We are in an exciting series called “Gotta Go” where we are recognizing the need to move forward in our journey of faith. Last week we looked toward the future and talked about taking bold steps to get there….today we deal with the very practical question of “how to get started from where I am right this minute.” If we are going to experience the life that God has for us, we have to start now – today we see what we have to do first.
It does not matter who you are…It does not matter what stage of life you are in …It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday…We all need something to keep us moving forward
The future is not a haphazard jumble of confusing contingencies… anything but – your future is a God designed path that is waiting for you to start living. So even before all the holiday decorations are put away, we begin to put the year that was behind us and get moving into the future. Are you ready? We gotta go!
