Numbers 11:16-30


When we find ourselves walking down roads that lead us to more pain, we tend to find excuses as to why we cannot make the hard changes to shift directions. No one else can make the decisions for us. We must find the motivation and make the change for ourselves. But when that change leads us in the direction of hope, purpose, and security, it makes the hard work worth it. Dive into God’s word with us to help find the motivation and truth to fight against the excuses we give ourselves.
