Hello to all I hope that the start of your week is going awesome! I pray that theses challenges have been able to help you grow closer to God! If you have been tracking every day I just want you to know that is awesome. You are close to a week in. If you have been hit or miss that is okay just make a fresh start and jump back in. Today it is all about being comfortable, we like to be comfortable and we work hard to live in a comfortable state. The challenge is that when we are comfortable we tend to stop growing, simply because we are not challenged. Check out this video and ask yourself if you have gotten comfortable in your relationship with God…
The Challenge: The challenge today is to do something that will make you uncomfortable… That could be talking to the person who know one talks to at school, or it could be praying for the people who don’t treat you well. We all have different comfort zones, so todays challenge is all about you getting out of your comfort zone. Do Something today that will cause you to not feel comfortable and will cause you to take risks and depend upon God. We are in a race and we have to run like we want to win the race. When you are training for something a competition or a game you train and work out hard if you really want to win. We have to see that in our relationship with God we have to train and work out hard so that we might win the battle. Don’t get comfortable, fight, push yourself and stretch yourself every day!
Verse For The Day:1 Corinthians 9:24-27 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. Wow take this verse to heart and remember that you need to push yourself with excitement for all that God has for you. Dig in and know that the journey that God wants you to travel on is powerful and awesome! This is a verse that I would mark and underline in my Bible and it is one that I would put to memory, so that you always have it as a reminder to not get comfortable…..

Live in the hope and the Joy of God and don’t get comfortable! God wants to challenge you each and every day so that you might see how awesome He is! Press ON!
