I admit it. I am a sucker for challenges. I guess it’s the self help – personal growth aspect. Maybe it’s because I can’t figure things out on my own until I am forced to. IDK but if you want to intrigue me… give me a challenge.
Spiritually Hungry is one of my favorite blogs. They offer well thought out challenges that actually grow my faith and bring me closer to Jesus. I received an email the other day inviting me to join them on a new challenge, this one is all about gratitude which is one of my favorite topics to talk about.

The general premise is to read the scripture outlined in the challenge and spend time reflecting, meditating, and just being present with the Lord. Through this you’ll have these little light bulb moments and that, ladies and gentleman, is when real change begins.
Scriptures about Gratitude and Thanksgiving
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!”
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul,
‘therefore I will hope in him.’”
There are countless more, but we’ll save those for another day. I am 2 days into this 7 day challenge. Go at your own pace, and really open yourself up to the experience. I think you’ll be really glad you took the time to with God and really invested in yourself – spiritually.
I invite you to come on this journey with me and Spiritually Hungry and cultivate a thankful heart… One day at a time.
P.S Did I mention it’s FREE? lol
