30 Day Trial | Day 1
Welcome to Day 1 of the 30 Day Trial Challenge
"The Journey of a Thousand Miles (or 30 days) begins with a Single Step." - Lao-Tzu
So here we are at Day 1. You should be armed with your specific and measurable goal statement. You should also have the yardstick that you will be measuring yourself against. Take it easy to and use that 1st Day excitement to get momentum going. There is something to creating a streak that is exciting. Today you are 100% engaged and focused. Below is a quote found on the wall of a Pastor's house in Zimbabwe. It speaks about the commitment.
"I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit power. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away or be still.GO! GO! GO!
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer and labor by power.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go until He comes, give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He stops me – and when He comes for His own, He will have no problem recognizing me – my banner will be clear!" - From My Commitment as a Christian by Bob Morehead
