Intentional gratitude is always top-of-mind this time of year, with Thanksgiving quickly approaching. With the hustle and bustle of life, it’s often easy to forget that expressing gratitude applies to all seasons of our lives. As believers, we are called to be grateful in all situations and to live with the joy of the Lord. 

If you check out last week’s blog post, you caught our introduction to October’s series on prayer. As believers, there are different aspects and avenues of prayer depending on our needs, desires and current season of life. Last week, we walked through what it looks like to approach prayer during life’s seasons of waiting.

During our lives as believers, we are constantly learning new things about our Father. The journey to fully know Him is never over, because his power and love for us is so immense! As we answer our call to worship, it’s important to know our God and why He is worthy of all our praise. 

We often hear people say “Follow your dreams!” or Dream big!” Although there are encouraging statements, it can often be scary to truly chase our biggest dreams, since there is always the possibility of those dreams not coming true. 

Have you ever had plans that have fallen apart? Have you ever had an idea in your head that didn’t turn out at all like you pictured?

We’ve all felt the pressure to maintain our reputation. Maybe it’s the reputation of making straight A’s. Maybe it’s to be the best on your sport’s team or to make everyone laugh in class. As our lives progress and we interact with others, we build reputations around ourselves, and these reputations create expectations for who we have been and who we are going to be.

 

When we take a look at the life of Moses, the Bible tells us that he did many, many amazing things.
