I want to change and I want to do it with God!
It’s the beginning of a new year, and you want to make a change, right? Maybe you want to lose weight, or getting your finances under control. Perhaps, it could be working on your marriage or giving up smoking.
Every year we go through the annual cycle of resolutions as a society, and every year, by the third week of January most have quit their New Year’s vows, or at least faltered. Only the few survive and achieve their goals. And after failing, we usually think, “Well there’s always next year” or maybe “I’ll give it another try in a few days or weeks.”
What if I told you there could be more to your resolution?
What if there was a way to achieve your goal through the power of God?
Yes, through the power of God!
That’s what this challenge is all about – learning and depending on the power of God.
Do you know that God is deeply interested in you?
That His love for your knows no bounds!
Take a moment and think about how well you know this. How well do you live in this reality?
Part of God’s love for you and me is depending on Him for your strength and guidance.
And that simply means we are not alone and we don’t have to figure anything out on our own!
Just little more detail about what you get in the Challenge packet…
We have prayerfully crafted a guidebook that will help you in your journey with your New Year’s resolution.
If you have done a Spiritually Hungry Challenge before, please note that this one is a little bit different.
Instead of daily challenges, this month will focus on weekly challenges. The purpose of a weekly challenge is to align your heart and mind on a single spiritual discipline for the entire week.
Spiritual disciplines are a great tradition of the Church that date back centuries. In short, they are simple ways to connect with God. The intention is not to master the technique, but rather use it as a means to find your way to God.
In addition, this challenge includes daily Scripture readings. Some of these readings are longer passages, as the intention is for you to spend more time reading about the mighty acts and love of God as you learn to trust Him more.
After each verse(s) there will be guiding reflection point. Please use this reflection time as a chance to interact with God. Speak with Him about what you read and are thinking. Spending time in the presence of the Lord is an essential part of this challenge.
And finally we have two worksheets for you. The first one is an entrance worksheet that will help you align your head and heart to the challenge before you. The second one is an exit worksheet, designed to help you better process the challenge and where you will go from here.
We hope 2017 is an amazing year for you.
A year filled with renewal, joy and peace. We wish you a year where you can grow deeper into your relationship with God. A year where you walk moment by moment in His presence and love.
So journey with us this month as we, together as a people God, learn to turn to Him for help in our New Year’s Resolution.
