Joshua 1:9: “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

A new chapter in our lives can be both exciting and intimidating, for various reasons:

  • It’s a new chapter, which brings about unknown territory. We are out of our comfort zone.
  • It’s a new chapter, which promises new challenges.
  • It’s a new chapter, promising new beginnings and leaving the past behind.
  • It’s a new chapter, but that does not mean we are newbies. We come with a history of preceding chapters. Hopefully we have learned something that we can bring to the table as we embrace our new chapter.

What an encouragement to know God is with us! Knowing that God is right here with us plugging along, mentoring us, cheering us on as we embark on a new venture, it just dawned on me this morning that God truly is a God of adventure. He apparently loves a good challenge and He encourages us to embrace life in the same way: love the challenge; have an adventurous mindset; be eternally curious; never stop exploring, questioning, and digging deeper; never stop learning. – Now that’s the Spirit!
