Every believer has a purpose that has been specifically created for their lives. The wilderness journey is designed as a training ground for crossing into that purpose. But so often we get HUNG. STRUCK in the wilderness somewhere between the Red Sea and the Jordan River. Stuck somewhere between the issues, the problems, and the power of our past, and the purpose, the calling, and the election of our future.
Today, so many in the church are living in the wilderness. With an entire generation standing in the balance, and a need for spiritual direction, we stand in a place where we have grown content and complacent, unable to move and in a place of no purpose. But the wind of God's Spirit is beginning to blow. Complacency is turning into a fresh hunger for goals, and contentment is turning into a yearning for something more, something better, something with a pursuit of purpose.
If this is you, if this is your heart, than you are moving into a good place and have become a candidate for "Crossing Your Jordan."
