This is Day 15 from the Journal Challenge:
So, today we are doing NO sweets. And, earlier, as I was doing my Barre workout, and one of our team members came to me and said he was running to pick up donuts and wanted to know if I wanted one.
“Ummm, SATAN I REBUKE YOU!!”
Now, the team member didn’t know about today’s fast but it was a TEST.
What are you doing when you’re faced with a test?
Do you give in? “Yeah, I will take a sprinkle chocolate donut.” I mean, nobody knows about this challenge? A little donut won’t hurt nobody.
Sis, you may not see this as a big deal but when we say we are going to do something and then give in — we are slowly proving that our flesh is ruling our life.
What is ruling your life?
When you say that you’re going to do something, do you do it?
Are you a woman (or a man) of your word?
Can people depend on you?
Can God depend on you?
Or does a donut control you?
How do we expect to cast out demons when we can’t take authority over a donut?
1 Corinthians 10:13
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
COME ON JESUS!
You see that? God is saying that the temptations may come BUT GOD WILL GIVE YOU A WAY OUT.
You have a CHOICE.
You don’t have to choose the donut.
You don’t have to choose sex outside of marriage.
You don’t have to choose to receive those negative thoughts.
You don’t have to choose to argue with your husband all day.
You don’t have to choose to go off on the Starbucks employee.
You don’t have to choose to cuss your co-worker out.
You don’t have to choose to scroll through social media all day.
You can choose to eat healthy.(Let me go get some apples right now lol)
You can choose holiness.
You can choose to cast down bad thoughts.
You can choose peace in your home.
You can choose self control.
You can choose to read your bible.
Baby, you got a choice.
Let’s choose differently today. Let’s do differently.
Remember you will only do differently based on what you are FULL of.
So, let’s fill ourselves up by reading the word of God and spending time with the Lord.
So, again, today is day 15. Grab your journals and write “Day 15” Tomorrow is Day 16 and so on. If this is your first day joining the challenge, for you — it’s day 1. If you haven’t grabbed your journal or a book to read for the month — find one! If you need some help, I have journals and books HERE. I will rush ship everything to you!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the details of the Journal challenge, check it out HERE. I’ve also posted ALL of the previous days on my blog as well. Check out the details there.
I shared a course that I recorded on “Overcoming Insecurities” so if you are finding that rejection, abandonment and your past is stopping you from being happy, married, joyful, single or whatever else – check it out HERE.
ALSO, every week, I will be giving you a NEW scripture to meditate on for the week. The goal is to meditate on it daily AND memorize it. Even if you’ve already memorized the scripture — then meditate on it. Just roll it over in your mind, think about it, focus on it, break it down and study it in a brand new way.
I hope it’s going well! We will have a new one on Monday!
WE HAVE A NEW CHALLENGE FOR NEXT WEEK! Stay Tuned.
The scripture for this week!
“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
Last week’s scripture to memorize:
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
The first’s week’s scripture is:
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT Version)
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all that you do and He will show you which path to take.”
Just a few things!
-I will be sending out a DAILY email of encouragement for the next 21 days and we will wrap with my FREE monthly study on January 23rd, 2020 at 9pm EST LIVE on my Youtube Channel. (I will also be doing a Live Q & A!)
-There’s no “set” time to when I will send out the daily email. I will send it out as the Holy Spirit places it on my heart. It may be 8am EST. Or, 8pm EST. Don’t worry, it’s coming! Also, make sure you take this email out of your junk mail if it went there!
-Be sure to join the Facebook Group for accountability! You can join the group HERE. If the link isn’t pulling up for you for some reason, just search “Pinky Promise Sisterhood” on Facebook.
Remember, it’s easy to start. The goal here is to FINISH. You have 24 hours in ONE day. Give 1% of your day to God for the next 21 days. I can ASSURE you that it will CHANGE your life.
After the 21 days, you will find yourself NATURALLY going to the Lord’s presence for 1:1 time.
