Each devotional starts with a Bible verse, a short story, a Bible passage of praise to God, Scriptures for the day (around 3-5 scriptures from all part of the Bible that go with the dare for the day), followed by the dare of the day,a few lines for journaling, a prayer to prayer, a final verse, and an "I Believe" statement to memorize and reflect on.
I took the dare! (Only, it took me more like 45 days to do it then just the 30~ SHAME ON ME! I'm a busy mom to 5... I know, I know, that's no excuse!)
The dare challenges you with practical dares that make complete since!
Here are a few of the dare:
- Dare to pay attention to God's lead
- Dare to live differently by liking like are loved (Good dare, beautiful scriptures!)
- Dare to believe God's power in all circumstances
- Dare to renew you mind in God's word
Debbie has done an awesome job! I think that this would make a great gift for a new believer, a church leader and an awesome devotional to work through as a small group.
Devotionals took me a 40 minutes to get through. Mainly because I turned to the scriptures in my Bible to read in a different version and to mark up my Bible with some new favorites and truths.
Though I like the journal lines in the book, I did not use them, I wrote in a journal instead. I did this for two reasons:
1) So I can lend the book to friends.
2) So I can take the challenge again and compare my journal thoughts at a different point in my life to see the differences.
All and all this book was well worth my time and I received lots of new insight on my attitude, thoughts and heart. This dare is worth taking and if you commit your whole heart to it, you will come away with a new zest, fire and inspiration in your walk with God.
