Looking Ahead
I've got a March challenge for all of us that's about being intentionally bold for Jesus. In the book of Acts, Luke writes:

"Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness."
Acts 4:29

In the month of March, do one or more of the listed challenges. Unless we are intentional about our walk, we may find that we never take a step forward. I would love to hear your stories of how you accomplish one or more of the above challenges. Share your experiences with me in person or send me an email on how your March challenge goes.
