Day 40 - Living with Purpose

Are You Diving In?

"DIVE" - Steven Curtis Chapman

We read it, we believe it... now it's time to DIVE IN and take a leap of faith!


DAY 40 !

Point to Ponder: Living with purpose is the only way to really live.

Verse to Remember: "for David... served the purpose of God in his own generation." Acts 13:36 (NASB)

Question to Consider: When will I take the time to write down my answers to life's five great questions? When will I put my purpose on paper?


This is a great feeling! Can you believe it's been 40 Days? Looking back at the beginning- 40 days seemed like a very big mountain to climb. YOU DID IT! Wow, what a great acheivement! You are a success and an achiever for God.

Our purpose-driven lives do not end here. It is the beginning of great things God will be doing through your lives!

Day 36 - Made For a Mission


DAY 36

Point to Ponder: I was made for a mission.

Verse to Remember: " Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)

Question to Consider: What fears have kept me from fulfilling the mission God made me to accomplish? What keeps me from telling other the Good News?

We Are Nearing The Finish Line!

Can you believe there are only 5 more Days left to this campaign?

It has been a very big commitment. There has been struggles along the way, but I hope there has been many life-changing experiences too!

It's been a great journey with God! What makes this special is to have friends to motivate you and to encourage you along the way.

Don't quit! Don't give up! We are about to cross the finish-line and God's blessings are waiting for us on the other side.

(Hmmm... I think the next campaign we should do is "40 Days of Fasting". Ummm... I will have to pray hard about that one. HA!)

Day 35 - God's Power in Your Weakness


DAY 35

Point to Ponder:
God works best when I admit my weakness.

Verse to Remember: "My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9a (NIV)

Question to Consider: Am I limiting God's power in my life by trying to hide my weaknesses? What do I need to be honest about in order to help others?
