21 Challenges 21 Days to THRIVE!

We have begun this week our 21 days of worship online for 2021! I hope you are joining in each day at 6 am or at a time that works for you. The 21 days will offer a daily key to thriving. Practicing these keys all year will serve us well! These keys also translate into a daily challenge. I thought you might be interested in having a list of all the daily challenges to use as a catalyst in your walk with Jesus. The three weeks of the 21 Days are broken into three different categories God, self, and others. The daily challenges and scriptures are from my work, but I did want to give credit for some ideas for the framework from Chris Folmsbee in his book The Wesley Challenge.

Day 1 – January 4, worship God every day for 21 days (Psalm 95:6-7)
Day 2 – January 5, pray for at least 10 minutes a day (James 5:16)
Day 3 – January 6, give up something to make more room for God - Fasting (Daniel 1:8-17)
Day 4 – January 7, have one short devotional reading a day (Psalm19:14)
Day 5 – January 8, write a quick journal entry of your spiritual growth each day
(Deuteronomy 6:4-9)
Day 6 – January 9, act on your faith and step out with God (James 1:22)

Day 15 – January 18, offer a simple and random act of kindness today (Ephesians 4:32)
Day 16 – January 19, offer a kind word (Acts 4:36)
Day 17 – January 20, form mutual accountability with a friend (Proverbs 17:17)

Day 19 – January 22, send one encouraging text, email, or letter (1 Timothy 1:1-3)
Day 20 – January 23, offer an act of giving and generosity (2 Corinthians 8:1-3)
Day 21 – January 24, witness to one person today what the Lord has done for you
(Matthew 5:16)

Well, I hope you will respond to the daily challenges! If so, we can make a significant step to thriving in our walk with Jesus. These challenges are very practical and doable. These practices can be an extension of our walk with Jesus as His disciple! May the Lord Bless You this year! Let’s THRIVE!
