One week ago today 31 Days to Coming Alive was birthed into the world.
Still feels like a dream…. a thing I cannot believe. And I want to thank you THANK You thank you for your part in my dream as we come alive together. Your texts, tweets, and Facebook posts about what God is showing you mean more then I could ever say. And wow.. is God showing me things along this journey.
PS: Keep telling your friends..
You can Purchase here.. and in 4 weeks ish it will be available in print. Wahoo
So I feel a little bit like a new mama to be honest. Like I got this baby birthed.. now WHAT do I do with it.
It can be tempting to try to figure it all out. A list of ok.. here’s what I do as a new mama next.
Or to flip out: AWWH this baby’s here what do I do next.
Do you ever feel like that in life?
You know what the Lord has spoken to me. Trust me with this baby. It’s mine.
Just like when you have an actual child.. as a parent you realize that child does not belong to you either in reality.
When God answers our prayer, it can be our tendency to want to cling to that answer. However, we need to cling to the answer giver.
Hannah prayed for a long time for a baby. And I love what she said in 1 Samuel 1:27 For this Child I prayed and the Lord has given me my petition that I made to him. Therefore I have lent him to the Lord. As long as He lives He is lent to the Lord.
Our God is trustworthy. When He lends us an answer, we can trust Him.
I don’t know about you, but that makes me come alive.
Speaking of coming alive… I know I was supposed to start the 31 days to Coming alive Challenge yesterday. But I felt
alive like death as I was recovering from the stomach virus.. and just because I like to keep it real here.. here is a sofa recovery picture for your viewing pleasure
So let’s start our 31 days challenge. Each day will connect with a day in 31 days to coming alive. I will also be starting a facebook group on Coming Alive’s page and my page which will have a little 31 day coming alive challenge each day.
At the end of this post.. if you enter there is a GREAT Coming Alive Giveaway. If you win you get 2 free signed copies of 31 Days to coming alive when it comes out (one for you and a friend), a 10 dollar starbucks gift card, and 2 free tickets to Bloom. You have a week to enter. Tweet for extra entries, post on facebook, tell a friend, comment on blog ect. I cannot wait to COME Alive with you.
Day 1 in 31 Days to Coming Alive starts with Coming Alive in Christ. (and a really funny story of how I feel down three flights of auditorium style seating taking me and three other poor unsuspecting students and their desks down with me).
” If you have been a Christian for seven years or seventy years, would you take a moment and remember the life transforming truth that we have a relationship with a Savior, who died for us
And rose again!”
So today’s come alive challenge: Think about when you first experienced Christ’s invitation to you. Celebrate that moment.
Share it with a friend.
And would you share it with us here in the comments, or on facebook.
Let’s celebrate the invitation together!
