Use these questions as a guide for your time this morning. It’s okay if you don't get through all the questions. They’re just intended to get you started. Each question includes a way to pray and ask God for insight.
What are some expectations you had about your young adult years? What did you expect to feel, be, or do by now? Ask God to reveal to you some of these expectations.
What are some feelings you have when you see what other people your age are doing with their lives either in real life or on social media? Do you feel a sense of pride, a sense of disappointment, or something else entirely? Ask God to reveal some of these feelings to you.
This morning, Wayne Younger spoke about being humble before you're humbled. What are some areas where humility is missing in your life? Ask God to reveal some of these areas to you.
This afternoon, Doug Smith will talk about being leaders before we lead. Are there some areas of your life where you could show leadership even before you're given the title of leader? Ask God to reveal some of these areas to you.
This evening, Chris Jamison will tell his story and what it could look like to have joy before you have it all. What are some areas of your life where you're thinking…I’ll have joy when…” instead of experiencing joy right now?
As you close this time of prayer and reflection, ask God to speak to you today through the speakers and MERGE groups.
