In week one we start in Genesis. Genesis is our Yellowstone in some ways… one of the popular streaming shows of the day features the story of the Dutton family. John Dutton is the lead character, Yellowstone is the largest ranch in Montana, and the Duttons moved west years ago and settled the land. Many people flocked to the Old West because it was a chance to start over in a place where there weren’t many people. In our passage – God called Abram to move to an unfamiliar place and promised to make a great nation from him. His family would be one that would impact and influence generations. Abram trusted God, and knew one day the promise would be fulfilled. That is where our epic western adventure begins… Go West Young Man.
Today we wrap up our very honest, real, and heartfelt series on what it takes to move from Here to There – in this last session, we once again step forward into the practical, specifically how do you deal with the chaos around you — the chaos that occurs in situations that you can’t really control.
We are on a journey trying to get from where we are to “There” the place God wants us to be. When we get there, we make some amazing discoveries about how God works and how He uses us to change the world. In this study we take a very realistic and practical view of how we can move forward – it is not complicated but it can be tough…but the great news is, we are not doing it alone!
In “There” we have been looking at the importance of living our lives anchored to the Word of God. As we choose to live life according His plan we begin to discover His way. The journey He has for us is exciting but we must also be aware that not everyone we meet wants us to get to the place God wants us to be. This study is a reminder not to be distracted and lose your forward progress.
In our series called “There” we have determined – You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.
You move from where you are – to There – and when you get there, that is the now you are called to live. The Bible gives us some practical advice on how to move forward and make progress in life. This session explores that and hopefully gives you some tools to help you as you make real forward progress.
