The 21 Day Challenge

by Carrie Raab on January 12, 2012

The whole world is groaning for the sons and daughters of the Kingdom of God to be revealed! 

God has deposited greatness into each and every one of you!  Share your heart, passion, and live life to the full!  It is time to step into your destiny! Are you?  If not, why not? 

What is holding you back?  Fear of man, rejection, isolation, low self esteem, feelings of self pity or unworthiness?  Maybe it is none of those.  Maybe it is finances, maybe it is your marriage?  I do not know, but I do know that if you are honest with yourself, you probably know the real reason!

God already knows, so allow Him to go deep into the resources of your heart and heal the wounds! Did you know the mind is the greatest battlefield.  That is why the Lord says to “renew your mind.”  The word also tells us to “think on these things:  whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is lovely and admirable.  Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”  The word also says out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.

 

So, my friends, what are you speaking?  Are you speaking words of life over yourself?  Or are you cursing yourself?  The word of God also says that blessing and cursing come out of the same mouth, and that should not be.

Science has proven that it takes 21 days to make a habit. 

Let’s make today, Day 1 Are you up for the challenge? Learn to love yourself!  I believe we love ourselves in many ways, but most of those come in the form of selfishness.  The love of yourself I am referring to is not a “selfish love”, nor a “selfish gain”, but a love for who you are IN CHRIST JESUS!  See yourself as how Christ himself sees you!  Go deep and learn to love yourself as God loves you!  You are created in His image and so if you love God, you must love yourself, because GOD IS LOVE.

Think about the 2 greatest commandments… to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength AND to love your neighbor as you love yourself! Follow your heart, follow your dreams!  Dream BIG with God!  Don’t be intimidated!  Fear God, not man!!! I am writing to you today to say that you are LOVED!  You are WORTHY!  God loves you and created you for greatness!!! 

Just writing from my heart! I’m learning to walk this walk too! We are stronger in numbers! Would love your comments, thoughts, but ONLY positive ones are welcome! :)

Blessings,

Carrie

I think I needed to hear (read) this today. How great it is to come again to the realization that we are loved. So often, we get caught up in this thing called life, and forget that we are so loved. We forget the great LOVE that the Father and the Holy Spirit have for us. I know that we are in the lent season and some years I am guilty of focusing on remember Christ during holidays and especially around Christmas. I look forward to starting this challenge. To remind myself daily, not just during the holidays, but year-round, that He loves us so much. Thanks for the much needed word. Have a great one! :-)

Hey Tyra! Thank you so much for your encouraging words. Yes, we need to hear and remind ourselves how much our heavenly Father loves us! It is hard to comprehend His love sometimes. Glad the post spoke to your heart. Bless you. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
