Before the Next Step
Life is full of “next-steps”: new school years, new jobs and new life stages. In preparing for these, we can often feel unsure and fearful. In the book of Exodus, we learn how Moses prepared for his future as leader of the Israelites: he turned to God! His story teaches Christians to seek God. No matter what happens up ahead, God will be drawing us closer to himself at every step along the way.
