- Dates: Nov 1, 2015- Dec 11, 2015
- Duration: 40 days
Our very first BREATHE Study (Bow before, Reverence, Embrace, Adore, Talk to, Hear from, our Eternal Father) challenges you to seek and find the life God has ordained for you to live. Join us on this 40-day jumpstart challenge and discover exactly the life God has dreamed for you to have. As well as the habits, mindsets, and routes you’ll need to achieve it.
“You made all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous, how well I know it. You watch me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.“ Psalms 139:13-16
Many people attempt to live a new and improved life at the beginning of each year. Unfortunately, changing your life means changing habits, mindsets, routines, etc. Not only that, many of us don't know what the heck the focus on in the first place. We know something needs to change, but we just don't know what. So we shoot aimlessly in the dark at the ever eluding targets called self-improvement and destiny.
If you are in the 1% who actually knows what to change, come the new year more than likely you'll spend the first half of it trying to develop those new habits, mindsets, and routines mentioned earlier.
So here’s your solution, no matter where you see yourself, this (#BOSSdreams2016) 40-day Jumpstart Challenge will give you a real chance to start and end 2016 a better version of yourself.
First, we’re going to seek God for the answers. Because if you want to know what changes need to be made in order to live the life you were meant to live, it’s wise to consult the one who designed it in the first place. (Matthew 6:33, Psalms 139:16)
Second, we are going to spend time in scripture to help us develop the new habits, mindsets, and routines necessary to obtain and maintain God’s dream for our lives. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
And third, throughout these 40 days and beyond you’re going to be able to connect, collaborate, and converse with a community of individuals all after the same goal. Contrary to popular belief, the road to self-improvement does not always have to be a lonely one. We are to encourage each other, hold each other up, and come together in prayer so that our petitions can be answered. (1 Thessalonians 5:11; Matthew 18:19-20)
SO WHAT DOES THE CHALLENGE LOOK LIKE ANYWAY?
Well, we will be using Rick Warren’s Devotional “God’s Dream for Your Life” to guide much of our daily activities. If you have the YouVersion Bible App you can find it under Reading Plans. (Click Here to get the app or visit https://www.bible.com/). I will also be sharing each day's reading and some additional material with the group. If you are not a member of our Female Over Achievers Group on Facebook be sure to join now. Note, that we will spend 2 days on each reading for in-depth study.
You are going to have to dedicate at least 30 minutes each day to the challenge. And quite frankly if you can’t dedicate 30 minutes out of the 1440 minutes God gives you each day then much is to be said about your desire live the abundant life that Christ came for you to live (John 10:10) in the first place.
Each Tuesday 7PM-8PM EST we will have our corporate BREATHE Time to chat, share, and encourage one another via Google Hangout. A login link will be provided every week or you can always log in to view current and archived discussions at www.BOSSChristianNetwork.com/BREATHE
The challenge will conclude with our Annual Planner Party held Thursday, December 10th, 2015 from 7 PM-10 PM EST. This event will stream live. So no matter where you are in the world you will be able to join in on the fun. If you would like your private login link and your planner materials mailed to you, please submit your request to BOSSNetworkPartners@gmail.com on or before Monday, November 30th, 2015. Together we will construct our 2016 I Am BOSS Planner so that daily, weekly, and monthly you will be able to nurture the new habits, mindsets, and routines you have acquired and/or perfect throughout the challenge. The event is $40 for non-members and FREE for members. This covers your planner materials, food, and a donation to our Youth BOSSes initiative in partnership with the HEY! Organization.
