(Author’s Note: The Holiday Help 2015 page was updated this evening 12/1/2015)
I got this video via my friend Jeff Nischwitz’s weekly blog post in my email this morning. (You can sign up to receive Jeff’s Daily Wake up Call by clicking here)
Once I watched this video I knew I had to share it with you. Please watch this video and then prepare your list so starting 12/1 you can make a difference and brighten someone’s holiday.
There are 31 days in December and the challenge runs 30 days. Hopefully by then, you will be in the habit of saying “I Believe In You” that it will be natural for you to continue doing it daily.
The 31st Day – New Year’s Eve
However, on New Year’s Eve tell your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, or husband “I believe in you.” and “I love you.” just before midnight. Then after you kiss at midnight, tell him or her “I love you.” and “I believe in you.” again.
What a way for them to end 2015 and start 2016 by hearing those words.
But…(why is there always a but?)
What if I am single with no boyfriend of girlfriend? Here are 4 options:
- Tell God you believe in him.
- Tell Jesus you believe in him.
- Tell the Holy Spirit you believe in him.
- Tell yourself -“I believe in you.” and “I love you.”
Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart
While you are doing this challenge, do not forget to give thanks to God for the people whom you are saying “I believe in you.”
Make it a point to say it to the stressed, weary and grumpy people as you are out shopping.
Now, let us pray.
Dear Gracious and Loving Heavenly Father,
You are gracious, holy and kind.
We thank you for the gift of today and your mercies as new today as they were yesterday and will be tomorrow.
22 It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Bless everyone reading this post and may they take the challenge, for this is how we can live out the words “be fruitful and multiply.” from Genesis 1:28.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
This is how we live Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote
Father God, this blog has reached 115 countries. I pray that today, a minimum of 1 person is reached in those 115 countries who decides to take this challenge. I know that with you my heart’s desire is possible.
In Jesus’ precious name we pray,
God bless you.
(whose tired and weary soul has been greatly refreshed by Jeff’s video and the writing of this blog post.)
