Love Dare - Dare 24 Love vs. Lust

Day 24 Love vs. LustThe world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. -1 John 2:17
 Today's Dare:
End it now. Identify every object of lust in your life and remove it. Single out every lie you've swallowed in pursuing forbidden pleasure and reject it. Lust cannot be allowed to live in a back bedroom. It must be killed and destroyed - today - and replaced with the sure promise of God and a heart filled with His perfect love.


Love Dare - Dare 23 Love always protects

 Day 23: Love Always Protects

[Love] always protects.
-1corinthians 13:7

Today's Dare:
Remove anything that is hindering your relationship, any addiction or influence that's stealing your affections and turning your heart away from your spouse. 


Love Dare - Dare 22 Love is Faithful

Day 22: Love is faithful
I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord.
—Hosea 2:20

Love is a choice, not a feeling. It is an initiated action, not a knee-jerk reaction. Choose today to be committed to love even if your spouse has lost most of their interest in receiving it. Say to them today in words similar to these, "I love you. Period. I choose to love you even if you don’t love me in return."


Love Dare - Dare 21 Love is Satisfied in God

Day 21: Love is satisfied in God
The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire.
—Isaiah 58:11

Be intentional today about making a time to pray and read your Bible. Try reading a chapter out of Proverbs each day (there are thirty-one—a full month’s supply), or reading a chapter in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). As you do, immerse yourself in the love and promises God has for you. This will add to your growth as you walk with Him.

My 365 ~ Day 215

Sunday Scripture ~ needed dose of the word

Every time I go to church the sermon seems as though it is written for me.
I am sure that is how it works for everyone.
When you need to hear something it always seems
as though the message was made just for you.

School papers can be messy!

For The Love Of 4
Cleaning is never fun but always needed.
With four kids, cleaning seems to be all I do.
I wanted to share some of my tips that I use when 
I tackle some of the mess in my home in the school area.


Love Dare - Dare 20 Love is Jesus Christ

Day 20: Love is Jesus Christ
While we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.
—Romans 5:6


Dare to take God at His Word. Dare to trust Jesus Christ for salvation. Dare to pray, "Lord Jesus, I’m a sinner. But You have shown Your love for me by dying to forgive my sins, and You have proven Your power to save me from death by Your resurrection. Lord, change my heart, and save me by Your grace."

Love Dare - Dare 19 Love is Impossible

Day 19: Love is impossible
Let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
—1 John 4:7

Look back over the dares from previous days. Were there some that seemed impossible to you? Have you realized your need for God to change your heart and to give you the ability to love? Ask Him to show you where you stand with Him, and ask for the strength and grace to settle your eternal destination.

Could we make it a 25 hour day instead? ~ 5 on Friday

Trying something new. 5 on Friday. Time passing so fast, with so many things in life that doesn't allow for blogging. My 5 on Friday will be my chance to share 5 things or moments that has happened the current week. I look forward to sharing and maybe getting back on the blogging horse.

There are so many things in life that we want to share, that I want to share. It is just the means in which I make time to share them. I never know if things get read or the audience who might be reading, but I do know that it is some kind of online journal. A little outlet of sharing.

So here is to a new beginning, one of which I hope to be able to stick with.
