Day 5: Respark Your Expectations

Bible Reading: Isaiah 43:1-21 Have you ever experienced a moment of your blood seeming to get heated up because of an expectation? Or your intestines seemingly twisting in excitement? You just couldn’t sit still! Maybe on the eve of your wedding? Or when you were about to become a parent for the first time? Or maybe the day before you went to University? (More because of escaping your parent’s house than the excitement of learning) Or maybe it’s the expectation you…

Bible Reading: Matthew 14:1-21 Have you ever suffered  the loss of a loved one? Truth is that it’s never an easy one to deal with.

He’s thinking it back and forth now. He’s probably…

Day 1: Respark Your Vision

Bible Reading: 2 Kings 6:8-20 Have you ever caught yourself thinking about how you would take your biggest chances in life? Say, for example, you got to address the United Nations General Assembly- what’s that one thing you would want to make sure you throw into that speech? Or that costume you would definitely wear? Or say you won a Grammy or a Nobel Peace Prize- what would you want to make sure you include in your acceptance speech? Was…
