Sunday’s Inspiration for your Perspiration 2013 – January Challenge!

on January 6, 2013

Happy New Year!  Hope your Christmas and New Year was wonderful.

Welcome 2013 🙂

I have a January challenge for you (and myself).

The January 5-10 Minutes with God Challenge

Life is busy, and crazy, and goes so fast.  And did I mention busy?  So I have a January challenge for you all.  Will you commit to 5-10 minutes every day to spend with God?  Just 5-10 minutes out of the 24 hours in a day.

***Now I also realize some of you may already spend more time than this daily 😀 so would you pray for those of us taking the challenge or share this post with a friend? ***

Seems so simple doesn’t it, yet I can’t even begin to count the days I have NOT spent just 5 minutes with the one who should be the MOST important person in my life.  Sad…actually really sad.  You can pray or read your bible or just talk to Him.  Morning, night or anytime in between.  I am hoping our 5-10 minute challenge will be the beginning of something beautiful and become our daily time with God throughout the year.

Would you ever NOT give your spouse, children or friends just that short amount of time each day?  Me either, so why do we not spend even this short time EVERY DAY with God?  I will spend more time than that just writing this post!  And you know what, even when we “forget” Him, He NEVER forgets us.  Not for one minute of our lives.  So lets pray to him daily in both good and bad times.  I bet your 5-10 minutes becomes one of the most important parts of your day 🙂

I made this little reminder note for myself.  I am going to hang it on the mirror in my bathroom and one on my refrigerator.  Feel free to print one for yourself as a daily reminder.

January Prayer

Psalm 17:6
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.

Psalm 141:2
May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.
