I stumbled upon a website a few weeks ago as a result of a powerful testimony I read.
(Read that here) from Emily at Chatting At the Sky. A brave question and answer moment about Emily's decision to travel to the Philippines with Compassion International as one of a few talented bloggers that will be writing about the trip.
Well. At the end of this article were these words:
And if you’re inspired to take a couple steps outside your comfort zone into the action, we’ll start registration this weekend for the next session of the Maximize Your Mornings Challenge. Stay tuned.
Hmm. A challenge. I don't need another challenge in my life. But this one leads me right to God's feet. I need that. Every morning! With accountability? I really need that. I know it won't be easy. We are getting ready for summer break here with my one school aged child and a teacher husband. But I am committed!
Here's the most exciting part for me. I began this journey last week. Monday-check. Tuesday-check. Tuesday afternoon-internet out. Caput. Gone. We just finished the final repairs and are back online today. I see that as a perfect confirmation that this challenge is for me! The devil tried to discourage and distract with the computer, colds, and commitments other than this challenge. I persevered. If the devil is after it, it's got God's plan all over it!
I'm meeting new ladies from all over the world on FB and Twitter that are commited to this as well. Their encouragement is awesome. So many different situations and so many strong women coming together to draw closer to Christ. I'm honored to be a part of that!
Inspired to Action is overwhelming me with support for this Maximize Your Mornings challenge, too. So blessed to have found this wonderful blog! God continues to make Himself real to me. Intentionally making myself available to Him. Praise God!
