Friday Challenge

Hello! Welcome to the blog, I am so glad you are here.

I am scared, excited and overwhelmed with the Friday Challenge today. It is a very personal one with me, which makes me scared to take it myself! I am excited to share it as I know God will do great things through it and I am overwhelmed with the idea of just how much "work" needs to be done in my heart alone!

Do you have a question for God?

God has laid it on my heart that there are a lot of questions today. Questions that need to be asked, and He wants you to ask Him. In asking Him, He will bring the perfect answer, at the perfect time!

I know my specific question of God. As I was praying for you, He laid it on my heart that there are other questions out there about:


Hardship

Depression

Ministry

Doubt

Pride

Love

Divorce

Overspending

Addiction

Guilt

Plan

Fear

Foundation

Conception

Disease

Survival

Lost

Freedom

Victim

Diagnosis

Money

Loss

Marriage

Identity

Religion

Relationship

Hormones

Church

Children

Belief

Work

Sin

Friday Challenge

This weeks Friday Challenge is to commit the next 40 days...which will take us through the end of this year, to ask God your question, be in daily dialogue, journal what you learn, journal how you see God working. Read His precious word to you, journal what you hear Him saying.

For those of you who are asking 'what if my answer comes before my 40 days are up?'....Thank you Jesus! Then ask your next question!!

If you are committing to this challenge, let me know, and I will be praying with you and for you!

Scripture I am reading:

Psalm 78

Ephesians 5

Nichole! This is a great challenge. It falls right in line with my journey to Christ that I recently blogged about. It was all about asking God questions and Him answering each step of the way.

I've been having such a hard time getting and staying focused lately that this might be just what I need. I'm in. :D

I have a big one that I have been hesitating to ask in a serious manner.

I am excited about asking now!
Thank you
You are such a treasure.

You challenger me to always strive higher and harder to know Him.

Be checking your e-mail soon for a sweet surprise.

Nichole this is a great challenge - and it places our focus on God and not our question. It gets us looking to Him and for Him. I will definitely be joining you.

Thanks for your comment on my blog and for your prayers. How very kind of you to have noticed my need for prayer as you took a journey around blog world :o)

Praying for you as well,
Joy
PS. Thanks for the Psalm 78 reference. God has spoken to me through that portion of His Word this morning.

What a great challenge idea, Nichole!

For me, it's been a long-term battle of understanding submission and assertiveness, and how to Biblically apply both in my life.

Love to journal--now I have a new focus! Thanks so much!!
