Will you take the Challenge?

I just found this and like anything really good it should be shared!
Let me know if will join me in taking this challenge.
Enjoy!





istock_000003950759xsmall.jpgJesus told a story about ten lepers who were healed. Only one returned to say “thank you.” I hope I am always the one.

We are where we are because of people God has put in our lives.

I challenge you to make a list of ten people who have influenced you and write them each a personal note of gratitude.

Your list might include:


  • Your mom or dad.

  • Your grandparents.

  • Your fifth grade teacher, your eighth grade coach, or your preaching professor from seminary.

  • Your youth pastor from childhood, the speaker who came to your youth camp, or the volunteer leader who listened to you when you were hurting.

  • Your friend who prayed for you daily.

  • The author of some book that touched your life in a deep way.

  • Some pastor you’ve never met but feeds you spiritually weekly on your iPod.

  • Some person who said one thing that encouraged you when you needed it.


Who are a few of the people for whom you’re grateful? When are you going to write that letter you’ve been putting off?

blog it
