Even when we feel stuck, God is working in ways we cannot even imagine. Sometimes we just need to sit back and look for the ways God is moving things forward in and around us. Of this we can confident: the God who recruited us on to this spiritual journey will also bring it to completion so that we are ready for our Lord’s return.
Scriptures: First Lesson: Numbers 11:4-17; Gospel: Matthew 9:18-26

My Next Steps
Point to Ponder: When Jesus becomes larger than your life, you’re free to face the future without fear.
Treasure to Share: I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. (Philippians 1:20).
Action to Take: Pray for a heart that trusts that with God on your side it’s always for your good so that even if your outward set of circumstances doesn’t change, you can have the confidence that God will change you. Then look for ways God might be leading you to let Christ become larger than your life for the good of others!
