Check out the details of my theme for this month here. If you’re new reader, welcome, I hope you enjoy your stay! If you’re a returning friend, welcome back, grab you’re comfy seat and enjoy the ride. 🙂
Today’s day 3. Today’s word: Challenge. Small admission before I get started…today’s word was supposed to be yes…but I flipped the words when I looked at them yesterday…haha. So I’m going to do challenge, which was supposed to be done yesterday. 🙂
Are you ready?
This week I have been challenged in many ways. First, on Wednesday I switched posts over at Must Love God. She needed more time, little did I realize that it was going live…today. Ha. Which meant I had like 12-18 hours to come up with a post for it. You can check out how God met me when I approached this challenge by going here…
On top of that, as you’ll read in my post from yesterday, I have been challenging myself all year (so far) to lose some weight. I have been having success…it may be only a couple of pounds at a time, but after reading this when I woke up this morning, I have no reason to feel anything but gladness for the pace I’m going at.
I have some wonderful friends who are challenging me to dig into and stay in the word on a regular basis and I couldn’t be more thankful for those challenges. To each one of you keeping me challenged, I say thank you.
Challenges are usually faced with fear, but as we learn to rely on God to help us with those challenges, we become wiser on which one to tackle and how to do so. A challenge without His divine blessing is more than likely going to fail.
I have taken on challenges in the past that I have failed at in my own will power…like weight issues. But relying upon Him and community I am making progress. I have learned that spirit directed challenges are the only way for me to go.
I’m going to link up over with the Gypsy Mama. They’re doing a different word…the word real. Even though I’m not doing the same word, my goal in each of my posts is to be real…I think it counts. 🙂 I hope you’ll join us.
