In Case You Missed It Series 2 Day 1: Finding My Way Through New Beginnings

In Case You Missed It Series 2 Day 1: “Finding My Way Through New Beginnings” by Jill McCandless

Fresh starts aren’t always easy. Sometimes they can feel like a relief, and other times a big adjustment. New situations can also feel a little scary or make us anxious. In this study, Jill walks us through various life changes that can be real challenges for us. From moving miles and miles from family and home to a whole new state, to new relationships and marriage, and then on to becoming parents—these situations can either shake us up or be faith boosters when we recognize He is with us in all we do. 

Here are a few sneak peeks into some eye-opening quotes found in this series:

(New Life in Christ) “Even though we are saved from our sins, we are not perfect. We make mistakes, we lose our focus, we stumble and fall, and we forget about the One who gave everything for us. The good news is that He never forgets about us. We can always go back and find that desire again, no matter how far we have gone.”

(College Life) “Temptations to sin are very much like a persistent itch that plagues us. They are constantly presented to us, making them hard to ignore. Temptations will come, but it is important to remember that they do not come from God.

(Dating) “Be patient, and don’t settle for less than the absolute best for yourself. You are looking for someone you can spend every day with for the rest of your life. That’s a lot of time, people.”

(Marriage) “Henry Ford once said, ‘Coming together is a beginning; staying together is progress; working together is success.’ Dating, becoming engaged, and celebrating a wedding is the easy part. Figuring out how to happily and successfully work together with your spouse through the ups and downs of life is a much bigger challenge.” 

(Moving Far Away) “If you have moved far from home (or are considering it) and are feeling unsure or unhappy in your new location, I encourage you to find your own unique strengths. God wants to use you and the specific gifts that only you can offer, no matter how big or small they may seem, if you are willing.”

(Parenting) “One of the most important pieces of advice I can give to new parents is this: do what works for your family. Pressure to conform to others’ expectations has always been around, but I think it’s much worse today with social media.”

(Parenting) “Suddenly our easy, predictable lives were filled with uncertainty and countless appointments. The doctors strongly encouraged abortion several times, but we knew God was asking us to trust in Him. He created her life, and we put our trust for her future completely in Him.”
