This past weekend I met with a group of men in the beautiful mountains of Colorado, to “prepare our shoes” for a journey of faith. Just like Joshua called the people to “consecrate” themselves before taking the step into the Jordan River and into the miraculous promises of God, we took some time to take a time out, and make our hearts ready for what God has next for us.

Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud Tim Spykstra contributed a whooping 373 entries.
A few weeks ago a pastor shared with me that “God had put him in a time out.” He went on to share about a difficult season he was coming through, one where God was working in his heart in order to prepare him for a new season.
I have heard from so many of you who are being pulled by God into a new adventure of faith. God is opening up new opportunities to trust Him and follow Him into the destiny you were created for. But as you read in Tuesday’s blog there is this attribute called “fear,” and fear can quickly cause you to freeze and keep you from moving forward.
I love chapter 1 of Joshua because of the picture it brings to my mind. Moses, a larger than life leader, has just died and God says to Joshua, “your up, time to get into the game.” What do you think was going through Joshua’s head? Hmm, maybe a little fear. OK, a lot of fear.
How could he step into the gigantic shoes of Moses and lead a bunch of stubborn sheep?
In my eyes, Joshua and the Israelites took incredible steps of faith as they left the wilderness and entered the land of Canaan. In doing so, they were able to witness the powerful promises of God unfold in their lives.
How did it happen?
