21 Day Challenge Day 2!

Day 2!! Mark two X’s on your calendar.

I hope that you are committed to completing the 21 day Challenge. I encourage you to play the song below, pray, and to spend time reading the Bible.

And before you know it, your 21 minute time limit will have come and gone.

He Wants It All by Forever Jones

The verses of the day is Psalm 75:6 (you might remember that verse from the five day challenge).

And Nehemiah 9:16-17

But our ancestors acted arrogantly; they became stiff-necked and did not listen to your commands. They refused to listen and did not remember your wonders you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in faithful love, and you did not abandon them.
Nehemiah 9:16‭-‬17 CSB

Yesterday, I decided to wrote in my journal because I struggled to focus while I prayed. Here’s the prayer I wrote for all of us reading:

Abba,

I’m grateful that you won’t forsake us, no matter what. You have never failed us. Help us to remember to take care of those who need to feel your love. In this world we oftentimes forget the poverty stricken widow or the single mom who can’t feed her kids or the suicidal homeless man. This life isn’t about our success or even our happiness. It’s about You and Your Kingdom and bringing other sheep back to their Shepherd by sharing the gift You’ve shared with us.

Help us to be a vessel to change the world. To touch the lives of those who feel forgotten or unloved. Help us not to get so lost or distracted in our problems that we forget You put us here to solve the problems of a lost world. We are Your hands and feet. We are the change we need to see in the world. Show us Your plan Lord. Lead us into our destinies. Use us however You see fit.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen
