Monthly Challenge

"By an act of faith, Abraham said yes to God's call to travel to an unknown place that would become his home. When he left he had no idea where he was going. By an act of faith he lived in the country promised him, lived as a stranger.... Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations-the City designed and built by God."

Hebrews 11:8-10 (The Message)

Let Go: You've said yes to God's call to travel to an unknown place or stage in your life, whether willingly or reluctantly. Is your focus behind or ahead? On the past or on today?

Start Over: You've heard it said, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life." Choose to characterize your life with the expectation of God's perfect plan to offer "a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 29:11)

Move Ahead: Start or end every day this month with Scripture to keep your eyes on an eternal foundation and to remind you that your life and future is in the hands of a loving, trustworthy God. Here are some verses to get you started: Psalm 31:24; 37:3-5; 40:4; 42:11; 46:1,2; 71:5; 84:11,12; 125:1; Proverbs 3:5,6; Luke 12:32; Matthew 6:31,32; I Peter 1:3; 5:7.
