A ten-minute challenge

Friday, December 28, 2012

This challenge is from Gwen Smith's facebook page. I subscribe to "Girl Friends in God" at I felt it was an appropriate way for me to start the new year. Then I thought "post this challenge in a blog on SparkPeople" (sometimes I amaze myself) emoticon So here it is and I pray you will join me!!!!!

"I challenge you to add a ten-minute “Sabbath” to your day for the next week. (I recommend you do it as soon as you wake up, but that’s your call.) Simply sit before the Lord and let Him know you are there. You might want to start your time by reading a psalm and responding in prayer. Then be still. Just ten minutes a day for a week."

    A very good suggestion. 10 minutes is so little when he gave his life for us.

    I'm willing to try it....I do start each morning with prayer so i'll keep doing it, and stay still for the full 10 minutes...
sounds like a good way to thank the Lord for all my blessings

  What a great suggestion! It takes only a minute or two to thank God for a new day and to offer a prayer. Dear Lord, let me use this new day for your glory and to honor you in my thoughts and my actions... Amen

May we all find peace and comfort in God's loving grace this new year . . .
