called to give

this time of year brings many opportunities to give. while everyone is telling us how busy and stressful this time of year is, i instead choose to focus on intentionally giving every chance i can. Thanksgiving and Christmas are, after all, holidays rooted in giving, gratitude, and the love of Christ. and we all know God was big on giving. {wink}

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, 
that whosoever believes in Him wouldn't perish, but would have eternal life.
John 3:16

is your heart prepared to give? mine is. are you prepared for God to pour out blessings in astonishing ways? i am. i am expecting God to lead me to places and people and open doors so that i can give obediently like He wants me to. 

Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; 
then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work 
and in everything you put your hand to.
Deuteronomy 15:10

please join me this month as i take the 30 Day Giving Challenge again. the challenge is to GIVE in some form or fashion EVERY DAY for 30 days. i will "use social media to inspire extraordinary giving" with an update every few weeks to share some of the different ways we're giving. i want to teach my children to serve, love, and give the way Jesus did. they will definitely know about and be involved in this year's 30 Day Giving Challenge. 

follow me in this journey, and take the challenge yourself. be intentional about giving every day. i am looking forward to discovering new ways that i can bless our friends, family, neighbors, and strangers, all for God's glory!

Every man shall give as he is able, 
according to the blessing of the Lord your God 
which He has given you.
Deuteronomy 16:17
