As much as we'd like to see it, God doesn't always give us the big picture. Our faith journeys often feel more like we're picking up holy breadcrumbs on a long and winding trail. This isn't so different from what the Israelites experienced after being freed from the tyranny and monotony of Egypt. In Follow the Cloud, author and pastor John Stickl shares how God's invitation to follow can lead to a life of freedom. When we learn to love ourselves in order to love others, extend forgiveness so we can be forgiven, and develop an attitude of trust, moving forward one step at a time, we'll draw closer to who Jesus is and what we're created to do.
