Can I have ice cream?
I was audacious at asking for stuff when I was a kid.
I was typical. I’d strike with my “can I have ice cream?” when the odds were in my. And I’d angle around the “no” and keep trying until I got a “yes”.
But I lost my chutzpah somewhere on the road to adulthood. Can you relate?
What happened to me?
I missed out on tons of good stuff in my life just because I was too scared to ask for what I wanted. Yes! I was afraid. I wanted easy and safe. And I was so religious I went after what I thought was God’s will for me. I thought God’s path was like a micro trail through the woods.
But God’s plan is like a wide valley. I get to choose which trail to follow.
It’s never too late to start!
My word for next year is “ask”. This year I’m going to take my word to a whole new level. Every day I’m going to ask God for something. And I’m going to track the answers I get.
Oh, yes. And I’m going to do an Instagram story each day to talk about what I learn.
Am I going off the deep end?
I’m never satisfied with “average”. My Christian friends know how I tend to push the envelope. I expect I’ll be like a rock in the shoe to some Christians. And others will get chapped because I’m talking too much about God.
But I’ve had this spark smoldering in my belly for a few years. Now it’s burst into a blaze I can’t hold in. I invite you to come along for a wild ride through the coming year.
I’m going to learn what it means to live as a child of God who is unafraid to ask for audacious gifts. The promises are there in the Book. I’ve decided to believe they are true.
Follow me on Instagram to see my story each day.
I’ll post occasionally with the #Ask365 hashtag.
Don’t fear: this blog won’t turn into a sermon
