Love Dare Challenge day 2:
All morning I have been pondering over the 40 day love dare challenge, why is this only a 40 day challenge? The Bible says we need to be like Him, act like Him, do things He would do. Why is that so hard for us as Christians? Being a servant, unselfish, patient and kind is all part of who God created us to be. Why have we all strayed from that? To be honest with you I have for sometime now, giving excuses like "oh I have kids now", "I am too busy", "I have a husband to take care of", or I need more “me” time. One minute I will breath the sweet air of heaven and the next minute choke on my own selfishness. There have been many times I wanted more in life, better material items for myself and my kids. Never thinking that we would be struggling through tough financial times, loose a home, or give back a vehicle because we could not afford the payments. BUT it happened, we are normal and have our imperfections just like everyone else. I am walking closer with the Lord right now that I ever have and I know one day my creator will bring me up to his holy grounds, place my crown of glory on me, and allow me to live beyond my wildest dreams.
After the gym this morning I washed Chris' car, filled his middle console with chewing gum (he chewsgum a lot since he has quit smoking) and topped of his gas tank . All very simple things but I feel so joyful that I did it for him, even if he does not notice. I feel good today, really good and I want you to as well. Kindness is an action of love. Patience avoids a problem; kindness creates a blessing. You will never learn to love until you learn to demonstrate kindness.
I challenge you to do one act of kindness today, no matter how small or how large I would love to hear about it.
Arriving home after the gym this morning the dishwasher had been loaded and was running, beds were made, Jalen was showered and ready for school, and Liam was up and changed. How much did this book cost me?
“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man” Proverbs 3:3-4
Lover you all,
