So I've mentioned before that one of the things I'm trying to grow into is the reality that, after people have taken some significant steps toward faith, they really need additional support and connection to resources if they're going to continue growing.
Someday I hope to have a whole body of believers who can surround my newly believing friends and help them to struggle through all the questions and challenges of walking with Christ. Right now, though, I'm in kind of a gap period, so I'm finding that I need to create at least some of the resources that they need.
So I've been hanging out with some former students and some other friends who are getting ready to take the bar exam in a couple of weeks. When we met together 2 weeks ago (to vent about the bar exam and then practice some essay questions), several of them expressed a lot of anxiety and uncertainty. Two of them have been coming to my Sunday night storying group and I was feeling like maybe I should work up some sort of little devotional thing that would help them to take their anxieties about this test to God and remember every day that they belong to God.
So I sat down that weekend and created that resource. I thought I'd post it on my website and link to it here, just in case there's anyone out there reading who might find it useful.
