All of us have had to overcome challenges to walk according to God’s purposes. What have been some of your challenges and how have those challenges shaped who you are today?
The pursuit of deeper intimacy with God usually involves courageous obedience. Share a time in your life where you were successful and where you fell short of courageous obedience.
