blog buttonHey Friends –

Welcome to 31 Days to Fire Up Your Faith!

If this is your first visit, start from the beginning here. Thanks for joining us! I am glad YOU are here!

So far we’ve started a Fire Up Your Faith notebook and we’re praying God starts a fire in our soul like never before!

Chili pepperWe’ve reflected on our faith journeys, and I disclosed my personal story from addict to overcomer. If God can do a miracle in my life — He can do it for you (or any of your loved ones) too!

Wherever you are on your faith journey, God can ignite you with fresh faith, passion and purpose.

But, how? How do we allow God to rekindle fresh passion and purpose and fire up our faith?

Over the next 31 Days, I’ll be sharing 5 Keys to living with Fired Up Faith. Let’s review what we’ve learned so far.

Key # 1 – Presence

It’s in His presence that our faith becomes red-hot!

Key # 2 – Promises

If we want God to Fire Up our Faith, we must cling to His powerful promises — memorizing, meditating, studying, sharing, praying His promises, and letting the Word of God dwell richly in us.

During this 31 Days journey, we’ve also been watching the powerful stories of some amazing, fired-up women!

Hanging out with Mary Beth in Nashville 2012

Today I’m super excited for you to hear Mary Beth Chapman‘s story. Grab a Kleenex, friend!

It was such a joy to travel to Nashville and meet with Steven and Mary Beth (recap here and here) They are a couple who have modeled enduring faith in the midst of a heartbreaking family tragedy.

As you view Mary Beth’s story, reflect on what we’ve discussed so far on this 31 Day journey. Be listening to how God’s promises helped encourage their family’s faith in their devastation and despair, and note the prayers they cried out from the darkest of times.

Here’s Mary Beth  —

I wish we could discuss Mary Beth’s story over a cup of hot coffee! I’m curious — what stood out to you from her sharing? Any new insights?

When have you cried out, “God, we need to see You in this?!”

In the comments section, I’d love to hear your thoughts and insights. Share with us please!

Today’s Challenge : Day 11 of our 31 Days.

1. Grab your Fire Up My Faith notebook. Jot down today’s date, and then, spend time praying, asking God to help you “SEE” Him in the midst of your circumstances and challenges.

2. What Scripture promise are you memorizing this week? How is it coming? Do you almost have it?

Don’t forget: If you need a verse, print off the Red Hot verse cards, and then pick one to memorize. You may want to select Psalm 34:8 — the verse that impacted Mary Beth and her family.

verse 7

In the comments section, say “I’m in!” so we know you’re join us in memorizing one of God’s promises this week!

Bonus challenge: take a picture of where you are memorizing your verse and post it on my FB page here. Yay!

3. If you haven’t already, print off this free downloadable/printable bookmark Praying God’s Promises Bookmark and then “go up the mountain” and spend time in His Presence praying God’s Word. Remember:
