As we prepare to put 2018 to rest, everyone who loves Jesus is making holiday celebration plans. Our Draw Disciples team has developed an exciting gift to give you and your family this year: a new Bible story set to help you walk through Jesus’ Nativity stories.

We will send you three stories each week. By Christmas, you will have all twelve stories in the set as an Advent gift from our Blazing Trees family. We hope you enjoy drawing these stories as a family, because we are confident these stories will draw you closer to our Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit’s presence, peace, and power.

Faith Journey Prayer Video

Click to Watch

We are called by God to live by faith and not by sight. Jesus told Thomas after his resurrection from the dead that the greater blessing in heaven is for those who have not seen and yet still believe.

Our Father invites us every day to trust him with all our hearts and flee from dependence upon our own strength. It’s not by our strength or our knowledge, but by the power of Jesus’ Holy Spirit that God’s kingdom comes here on earth.

We believe this Faith Journey prayer will uplift and encourage your soul today, that you will be reminded that you are not alone, that our God is greater, our God is stronger, that he is Immanuel, “God with us,” that he has not forsaken or forgotten us.

Instead, he loves us beyond what we can comprehend, and that he is always speaking to us every day and night.

Let us listen to our Good Shepherd’s voice.
