This is Day 12 from the Journal Challenge:
Last night, our power went out for a couple of hours. Logan and Taylor were with their grandma and just missed the power outage.
I went around the house and I started to light candles. I was preparing to spend my time with the Lord so grabbed my bible, notecards and a few candles so I could see. Roman was sitting a few feet from me and he was laughing and dancing.
The child didn’t even notice that we were in the dark. He was SO joyful. Meanwhile, I’m thinking about dinner with no stove/oven and wondering when the power was coming back on so I could clean up the house and get my life together. 🙂
I wonder if we are like Roman.. or are we like me when we are in the dark about life?
Are you silently complaining? I didn’t say anything but you better believe I thought it. Until, I got convicted by Roman’s joyful attitude. I thought, oh gosh, if we could have have the same mindset as Roman during hard times.
Did you know that joy is contagious?
So, as you go into your Monday, bring joy. Don’t bring complaining and telling everyone and everything how mad you are about life. Decide in your heart tonight as you go to sleep that:
Tomorrow will be a good day.
I will have a good attitude.
I will believe the best.
I will pass the tests that come my way.
I will walk by faith.
Even if I feel like I’m in the dark in life, I know that God hears and answers my prayers.
I will not give up.
I will remain thankful and focused.
I will go to bed so I am well rested in the morning.
I’ve gotten some questions on what to journal and this is included in the Journal details below but I use my journal to write what the Lord shows me, I use it to keep me accountable (for example, today is day 10), I use it to pour my heart out to Jesus. (like a diary)
So, again, today is day 12. Grab your journals and write “Day 12” Tomorrow is Day 13 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 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 THIS UPCOMING WEDNESDAY (1/15).
Let’s do a “NO SWEETS” day! This doesn’t include fruits. Buttt it does include the donuts, cookies, cakes, candy and other white sugars!
Every time you’re tempted to grab sweets, grab an apple or fruits!
Here’s this 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.”
Last 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.
Also, I am doing a giveaway on my Facebook /MrsHeatherLindsey & IG @heatherllove for the 2020 Pinky Promise Conference! Check it out!
