Day 1 - It All Starts with God

This is an exciting journey for you!

A start of a 40 day journey in answering the question, "What on Earth Am I Here For?"

Let's first celebrate in the fact that you are taking on such a huge commitment. A commitment that says, "I will do whatever it takes to complete this 40 day experience."

There are forces out there that do not want you to find purpose, value, and truth. You may already feel like you have too many "irons in the fire". You're life is hectic, complicated, and full of demands.

Your biggest enemy right now is TIME. You are constantly giving. Giving to your job, giving to your companion, and giving to life's demands. It's time to give back to yourself!

Rick Warren said, "Today the average life span is 25,550 days. That's how long you will live if you are typical. Don't you think it would be a wise use of time to set aside 40 of those days to figure out what God wants you to do with the rest of them?"

You owe it to yourself. Don't let anything stand in the way of your journey- your dreams.


Point to Ponder: It's not about me.

Verse to Remember: "Everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him." Colossians 1:16b (Msg)

Question to Consider: In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?
