DAY 40 – TRANSITION Isaiah 62:2 | Nahum 1:7 | John 14:6 Here you are! You’ve arrived at Day 40 in your transition into your new home – your new community. I hope and pray that you’re feeling somewhat settled and assured that this is the place for you, as you start this new stage […]

DAY 35 – TRANSITION Genesis 32:28 | Isaiah 44:8 | John 14:1-3 In this Genesis text, Jacob is given a new name. He will henceforth be called Israel, because he has struggled with the Divine.

FF40 – Day 28 on Transition | From Eli Wynn

DAY 28 – TRANSITION Amos 9:6 | Matthew 7:13-14 | Ephesians 2:10 Moving to Belmont may not have been an easy choice or transition for you. I suppose for some, coming to college was easier than it was for me. I have to say, I was a bit jealous of those of my peers who […]

FF40 – Day 12 on Community | From Andrew Johnston

Day 12 – Community Proverbs 27:5-6 | Philippians 2:1-2 | Galatians 6:2 I can be a pretty self-centered person. I’ve always consoled myself with the fact that I’m not “selfish” per se— after all, I don’t hold on too tightly to my possessions, I’m often generous with my resources, and I never take the last […]

Day 10 – Transition Genesis 12:1-3 | Psalm 62:6 | James 1:17 Psalm 62:6 says, “He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.” At times I have found the power of scripture through what is not being said. Put another way, do you find yourself assuming […]
