Life is full of surprises. Sometimes these are wonderful, at other times they are deeply challenging. At all times, when we walk with Jesus through the surprises of life, we can grow and learn to honor Him. In this five week series we will dig into the book of Nehemiah and learn that we can all be surprised by God’s call, the conflicts of life (particularly relational), the power of prayer, the weight of the work we are called to do, and the amazing victory we experience when we walk with God.
In the wisdom literature of the Old Testament there is a book that can seem disheartening and depressing if we just read it quickly and don't dig in. But, when we let the Holy Spirit speak to our heart through Ecclesiastes and look deep into this rich book, we discover the things that should matter most in life...and we also learn about the things we should never invest our whole heart and life in.
