If one single person engages in this exercise with me it will significantly increase my chances of doing this again. As I learn about myself, I have found that I need conversational interaction to grow in my own understanding. That's why I'm not exaggerating in the least bit when I say I need your help!
Read the short excerpt (look up further context if you desire), share your thoughts, or ask questions that come to mind:
The Lord said to Joshua "...Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:6-9)
Some questions to help spark reflection:
What purpose is given to Joshua's life?
What guidance is given to Joshua to accomplish this purpose?
Success is promised, how is this success to be understood?
What servant of God was more successful at God's purpose for their life then any other human being?
