Monday Kfirst Kickstart: Beyond “Just” #TrailLeader

Hitting the trail with a group of people is a fantastic way to strengthen friendships or get to know new people. While you’re putting in the miles, the person at the FRONT has a vital role in keeping the group together, focused, and safe. That person is known as the Trail Leader. A good Trail Leader will: 1. Keep an eye out for trail markers to navigate the journey. 2. Manage the group’s pace 3. Pause at crossings and junctions to regroup. 4. Recognize and maneuver through challenges. That brings us to the Old Testament figure Moses. For his story can be summed up as the story of a Trail Leader. His life is an epic tale of one who faces personal challenges while leading an entire nation along a journey of twists and turns, freedom and challenges, failures and victories. Our series will follow this Trail Leader from the beginning of his path to the end. And I hope this series will not only help us come to know Moses, but see how the trail he follows speaks into our lives today.

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • God loves to take what seems “ordinary” and use it for something extraordinary.
  • What you see as ”ordinary,” God sees as “opportunity.”
  • God doesn’t call you because you are holy. He calls you so that you can be holy.
  • God often leads us to engage in something we feel we are incapable of.
  • When God wants to use you, He takes your humanity into the equation.
  • God looks for a willing heart more than he looks for the “best equipped.”

Love you all. Have a great week.

BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • God sees. God knows. God is working behind the scenes.
  • God desires to draw us out of bondage and draw us into the plans and purposes He has for our lives.
  • “Faith is not believing in my own unshakable belief. Faith is believing in an unshakable God.” Beth Moore
  • The prayers of our pain do not fall on deaf ears.
  • Just because you may feel forgotten by God doesn’t mean he has forgotten about you.
  • “It doesn’t matter how great the pressure is; what really matters is where the pressure lies. Whether it comes between you and God or presses you nearer to His heart.” —Hudson Taylor
  • When it seems that God’s left the scene, it means He’s working behind the scenes.

Love you all. Have a great week.

Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:

  • Every story has a backstory; Your backstory matters.
  • It’s a dangerous thing to be jealous or critical of someone else’s “blessings” before you know their backstory.
  • We step into idolatry when we start worshiping what God has provided instead of worshiping the One that provided it.
  • You are writing tomorrow’s backstory today.
  • God‘s character is not contingent upon your circumstances.
  • Every broken backstory is a set up for a beautiful saviorIn the hands of the Enemy, your backstory is a weapon. In the hands of God, your backstory it’s a scalpel.

Love you all. Have a great week.
