This is Day 21 from the Journal Challenge:
Ahhh!! YOU MADE IT 21 days!!!
I am SO PROUD OF YOU!
Did you know that after 21 days of doing something, it becomes a HABIT?!
Yes, you had to press past your feelings.
Yes, you had hard days.
Yes, you felt like giving up.
Yes, you got tested.
BUT YOU MADE IT!
Im so proud of you.
YOU can do all things through Christ WHO GIVES YOU STRENGTH!
The word that is on my heart today. is “WHO OR WHAT IS CONTROLLING YOU!?”
Someone around you has a bad day?
Guess what, you do too.
Your account gets messed up?
You lose your job.
You get into a fight with your spouse?
You don’t have enough money in your account?
How is it that everything and everyone is controlling you?
At some point, you have to make up in your mind to NOT BE CONTROLLED BY EXTERNAL THINGS.
*kinda felt like I was yelling with that last line. lol*
Romans 8:9 tells us “But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)
COME ON JESUS!!!
You aren’t controlled by flesh. You are controlled by the SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD! You aren’t LIKE THIS WORLD!!
Lost your job?
Well, God closes and opens your doors. Praise the Lord! He has something better in store for you.
Someone is mad at you or having a bad day?
Pray for them. Don’t let them project onto you. Control your emotions and tell your flesh that you aren’t ruled by people but the Holy Spirit. Record no wrongdoings, practice loving unconditionally and stay focused!
Spouse fighting with you?
This fight is not a flesh and blood fight. It’s a spiritual one so Satan I rebuke you and all your little demons in the name of Jesus. You ain’t causing no division in my life and marriage.
No money in your bank account?
Thank you Jesus for showing me that I need to be a better steward over my finances. I can’t keep turning up at Starbucks everyday. I can’t keep up with the Joneses. I didn’t need those shoes from Zara. Imma do better. I thank you that YOU provide all of my NEEDS according to YOUR riches and glory!
I can go on and on about the promises of God. He’s so faithful to us! But, will WE BE FAITHFUL TO HIM? Will we renew our mind reading God’s word and staying focused on HIM?
Let’s FIGHT back today with the Word of GOD!
And, side bar, I’ve seen so many of your emails in response to these newsletters. I haven’t been able to respond to all of them but thank you for taking the time to send them. Thank you for your testimonies as well. I’ve seen so many from depression leaving in Jesus name to going back to church again.
I’m seriously so proud of you. I wish I could group hug ya’ll! *tear!
This challenge has been life changing for me as well.
I cannot wait to start 365 with Heather Lindsey on Thursday! I will be sending an email about it on Thursday where you can sign up. I will not be using this same platform.
Reminder that TOMORROW we are NOT EATING OUT. Plan ahead, meal prep and make that tea at home. Let’s PLAN AHEAD.
The next email from me will be on Thursday and it will have the details about 365 AND our LIVE STUDY at 9pm EST on my Youtube Channel.
I also JUST uploaded a brand new video titled “Are you sitting in the dark?” Check it out!
Do you need to grab a journal for 365 or a new book?! If you need some help, I have journals and books HERE.
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.
WE HAVE A NEW CHALLENGE FOR TOMORROW!
We are eating at the house! No spending money on food/coffee/etc! We are PLANNING ahead! Meal prepping and staying focused!
The scripture for this week!
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
The scripture for last 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.”
The second 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:
“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.
