Dare 14: You don’t need to prove it

Hey world changers!

It’s been a long while indeed since I’ve written here. Someone inspired me to pick this up again and now I realized how much I’ve missed this. But let’s cut to the chase and talk about today’s dare.

Have you ever felt like you aren’t good enough and can’t get anything right? You feel like you can never please God enough? If we’re honest I think we have all had those days of doubt. But I was recently reminded of Isaiah 64:6. It says “All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.” Okay so at first this verse sounds really depressing right? Think again. It says all of our righteous acts are like filthy rags. So our best works to God are just stinky, gross rags. To me that takes a load off my mind. God died for us knowing that was the best we could do. He’s not sitting up in Heaven saying “Those stupid humans can’t get anything right. Here I went dying for them and going through all hell and they can’t even give me anything but dirty rags. Boy did I ever waste my time on them!”. Sounds totally hilarious putting those words in God’s mouth right? I laugh every time I think about it like that. Believing that God loves us even when we mess up is life changing. And I mean truly believing it. If we love God we are going to try our best to please him and do what’s right but for when we mess up I hope we can remind ourselves of this verse. So that’s the dare for today. Next time you see someone (or your self) beating themselves up for not being “good enough” remind them of this verse and that God loves them anyways.

Until next time lovely, blessed and capable children of God. Now go change the world! 🙂

Dare 13: Love

Happy Valentine’s day, lovelys!!

This week’s dare is short and simple. Just love people today. I don’t care how or what you do just make people in your life feel loved. You don’t have to be in a relationship to love either. If you don’t have someone in that way yet don’t spend today feeling sad. Go out and love your family, friends, everyone! Just love people 🙂

Love you all! Have a great week!

 

Dare 12: Appreciate family

Hey difference makers!

This week’s dare is to give someone in your family a hug and tell them you love them. Family is such a precious gift and shouldn’t be taken for granted. Make sure they know you appreciate that God gave you a parent, sibling, cousin, ete… like them. And then afterwards how about we give God a thank you prayer for the person who we hugged.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go give my amazing mom a hug. 🙂 Go change the world!

Dare 11: If you can

Hey my lovely friends! 🙂

This week’s dare isn’t for everyone because I know not everyone has the means to be able to do this and that’s okay. This is for those who can and feel lead to by God.

The dare is use money to buy someone a gift or take them out to eat. You could get your friend that thing they’ve been wanting or take your mom for a daughter/son and mother date. I’m sure it would make their day! But as I said before I totally get if you can’t do this right now. That’s okay there a pently of other ways to show someone you care.

That’s it for this week. Now go change the world!

Dare 10: Check it out

Hey friends!

You know your friends blog they keep posting for everyone to check out on twitter? Remember your friend who just started a YouTube channel? You have been meaning to check them out but just haven’t got around to it yet. Well this week’s dare is to go and check them out! When people feel like you are interested in something they are doing that makes them feel like they actually matter and can do something good. So go and don’t just watch/read also comment on something you enjoyed about it. If you really, really like it maybe even share it with others.

Thanks for being awesome, friends! Have an amazing, God blessed week!

Dare 9: Smiles

Hey encouragers!

This week’s dare is to smile at people in the hopes they will smile too. I love smiling at people and often do it without even thinking about it. You can smile at people in the grocery store, at the person you walk by on your way, the shy girl at your church, anyone and everyone you come in contact with. You’d could be surprised how much it could mean to them. When strangers smile at me it makes me unexplainably happy. Of course not every person you smile at is gonna appreciate it or smile back but it’s always worth a try. If nothing else it’ll help you be in a more happy and positive mood because it’s been proven smiling makes you happier.

Have a great day everyone and show your beautiful God given smile to the world!

Dare 8. Pray for People

Hi Sunshine!

Ready for today’s dare? It’s not a normal one that you can see. (Right away anyways). This weeks dare is pray for people. Really pray for them. I truly believe prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have to help people. Pray for your family, your friends, people that drive past you to work, the girl who sits in front of you at church. Pray for the cashier at the grocery store. A great habit to start is just praying whenever something or someone comes to mind. Sometimes when I’m on a long trip I pray for the people in the cars we pass on the highway. Although I’ve never met them I know God loves them and cares deeply about them and their life’s.

I’ll be praying for all you readers too. I love y’all and appreciate that you guys care enough about people to do these dares. Have a great week!

Dare 7. Thoughtful letters

Hey lovely friends!!

So if you didn’t know I took a month break from this blog for the holidays but I’m back now and ready to keep encouraging people and to encourage people to encourage! I dearly hope you all had a blessed holiday season and spent time remembering the reason Christmas exists.

My dare for us this week is to show someone you are thinking of them and care about them and their life. Write someone a hand written letter or send them an email. Ask them what’s going on with them and let them know you care about them. Tell them about your life too. Make them feel included and a part of your life even if this friend lives 1000 miles away. Or you could write a family member you haven’t seen since you were a kid. I bet that would make their day.

That’s all for this week! See you next Monday and don’t forget you are so deeply and fully loved!!

 

​Dare 6. Quality Time

Hey friends!

Today’s dare is another put words into action dare. When someone wants to spend a day with you or watch a movie with you that feels pretty special right? They could spend time with someone else or just spend some time alone but they choose to spend time with you.

Well today’s dare is spend time with someone. I always like to give examples of ways you could go about doing the dares so here’s a few. You could call a friend and see if they’d like to catch a movie or go to the park. You could ask your mom if she would like to watch her favorite movie with you, Take your sibling out to eat or go for a hike with some friends. As always the possibilities are endless.

Thanks for spending time with me every Monday reading my blog! See ya next Monday, lovelies. Go change the world.

Dare 5. Thankgivings

Happy week of Thanksgiving special friends!!

I bet you could guess this weeks dare has something to do with being thankful. Well you’re right! 😉 Today’s dare is to tell someone you are thankful for them. And don’t just stop at one person. Go ahead tell everyone you see this holiday that you are thankful for them. We are so blessed to have the people we have in our lives. They are there for a reason. Make sure they know they matter to you.

I’m keeping this one short and sweet today. I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am truly thankful for you. Without you there’d be no point to this blog.

Now go change the world. See you next Monday.
