DAY 7: FUN
Congratulations on making it to day 7 of the #OolaForChristians Challenge! God has built you for great things and you are much more capable than you realize. Maybe this week you didn’t crush every challenge or maybe you did. Remember, progress over perfection. Since you have been working so hard, we wanted to end the first week by having some fun. You deserve it!
Our Fun Affirmation is simple: “I am pursuing the joys of life.”
Before Oola, Heather had walked through a very hard season and she had let the pain of her situation steal her joy. The day she walked up to the OolaBus and wrote down her goal on one of our goal stickers to Go on a Mission trip, she not only allowed herself to dream again, but launched herself back into the life she was meant to live.
So the question is…. What brings you joy?
Day 7 - Today’s challenge is to take an hour or two and go enjoy doing something you love. You deserve a moment to enjoy the life God gave you. So change some plans if you need to and head to the beach, have lunch with the girls or play a round of golf with the guys. Do something that makes you smile.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
God, your word says a merry heart does good like medicine but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Lord, thank you for restoring my joy and healing the places that have been hurt or neglected. Please bring me back to the dreams you created for me. Help me to pursue what you have called me to do and enjoy the life I have been given.
