(Genesis 12)

The Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from the land of your kinfolk, to a land that I shall show you.”

As with Abram, so too, with us. God calls us to let go and “go forth” into lands that are new.

Lord God, it is so easy to “settle in,” and disregard your call to “go out into the deep.” Give us the courage to welcome the challenges that you set before us.
