It just dawned on me as I write this that by doing my Quests each month, I have accomplished something each and every day of 2013 so far. How cool will it be on December 31st to look back on the year and know that I did something positive to create a pure heart and renew my spirit every single day for the entire year?
This 2013 Year Long Adventure has already been a growing, encouraging, and uplifting experience...and I am only three months into it! I am excited to begin my fourth month in a couple days and I would love to have you join me. What Quest would you like to accomplish every day for a month?
I have been thinking and praying about what to do for April, and I have decided to tackle two Quests this month. Both of these Quests have been on my mind and my heart.
This morning I spent time reading, Praying for Strangers and fullfilled my March Quest for the day. Taking a queue from this inspiring read, I plan to Pray For Someone Every Day in April. Yes, I already pray for people daily, but this will be different because I'm going to pick someone special to focus on throughout the day that I know has a specific need. It may be someone I know, and it may be a stranger.
As a matter of fact, whether we are Friends In Real Life or Blog Friends, if you have a concern you would like me to spend a day praying over, please send me an email. Just send me your first name (or a Blog Name, if you prefer) along with your need, and I will chose a day to pray for you.
One thing I can promise you, when I say I will pray for you, I will. Most of the time, when someone shares a prayer request, I pray for them right then and there, so that I don't forget to pray after I say I will. With this Quest, I plan to pray for that person throughout the day.
My second Quest will be to Encourage Someone Every Day. My idea for this Quest is to contact someone each day and share positive words with them. Again, it might be someone I know or someone I don't know, but I do have a list of several people I know that I want to contact and I just haven't taken the time to do so.
There are many options in how I will fullfill this Quest. I may send a letter, note, card, message, email, text, or treat. I might also call the person or just speak to them face to face. The method will vary depending on the person and what I want to do or say to encourage him or her.
I am very excited about both of these Quests.
Just to be clear, although I might blog some about these Quests, I will most certainly keep private what should stay private. So if you would like to send a special prayer request to me, you can trust that I will not write anything in this blog that should not be shared here.
Tomorrow our family will celebrate Our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ. We will enjoy Easter Sunday with family. Our Family wishes you and yours a very blessed day!
