Why is Growing on God’s Great Adventure Important?
I believe this is exactly what God has for us as we are on God’s great adventure. He desires for us to step out in faith and trust Him with every aspect of our lives. Faith is a journey, a journey we dare not take alone. We need the courage to seek a godly mentor or coach and ask the hard questions. God created you on purpose. He knows your name and cares about every detail in your life. You can trust God has a spiritual direction for your life.
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” (Colossians 2:6-7 NIV)
Things To Know About Growth
Some things we should know right from the beginning:
- God calls us to walk the unknown path and trust Him on the journey (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)
- You are not alone. God will be with us on this journey every step of the way
- God has a plan for each generation to lead the younger generation through faith
- There are multiple examples of mentors and mentoring relationships in the Bible
Life is too short you don’t have to do life alone. Allow me to share my mentoring story and how important it is for you to grow on God’s great adventure for your life.

What is God’s Great Adventure?
One definition of adventure is “an exciting or very unusual experience; participation in exciting undertaking or enterprises.” I love this description and how this dictionary uses the word exciting. I want to shout it loud, “Yes! God’s great adventure is exciting and life-changing.” Do you get excited when you read God’s Word? You Can!

Learn about the Power in Prayer
Did you know there are 650 prayers listed in the Bible? There is power in prayer and God’s Word gives us plenty of examples of how to pray and the importance of having a prayer life. Prayer is how we communicate with God anywhere and at any time. This is another reason to shout for joy.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV)
Learning how to pray has blessed my life and I encourage you to seek the Lord in prayer each day.
