My Next Step Journal

The My Next Step Journal is designed to support your discipleship adventure. In it, you will find guided faith experiments, focused prayers, key bible verses, and plenty of room to record what Jesus is doing in your life.

The simple, repeatable process for taking next steps follows three prayers: Jesus, where are you speaking into my life? Spirit, what response are you shaping in me? Father, what promise covers my next step? The Compass Question (Where am I right now? And where is Jesus?) and the Carabiner Question (Who’s on my rope?) help keep you headed in the right direction.

Read more about the Next Step discipleship process in Volumes 1-3 of the My Next Step series from Next Step Press.

Volume 1: Getting Started launches the adventure of discipleship by exploring attitudes for following. We also ask the Compass Question: Where am I right now?

Wherever you are on your journey of faith, the Spirit is able to lead you into a clearer sense of your dependence on Jesus. Following is not intended to be a burden, but a delight.

We follow Jesus better when we follow him together, so Volume 2 asks the Carabiner Question, “Who’s on Your Rope?”

We engage God’s Word with each other and for each other on this journey of faith. Like the Emmaus Road disciples, we find that, as we walk together and talk about what Jesus is doing–even if we’re lost or confused–Jesus shows up and walks along with us.

Volume 3: Finding Your Groove puts it all together to provide a simple, repeatable process for answering the Hiking Boot Question: What’s my next step?

The answer is grounded in God’s activity to Speak, Form, and Promise. We also look for help getting back on track when your faith walk starts to drift. This adventure isn’t always easy, but it is filled with joy!
