A to Z Challenge - my own challenge

 I've noticed on and off people have been doing A - Z challenges but haven't really found the source of them.  I was intrigued so decided to do my own challenge.  There is no time frame challenge, just 26 posts, alphabetically, with a Christian theme.  Preferably something that is real to me so that I can write a post with understanding.  I also want these posts to be encouraging and edifying and positive.  If anyone wants to join me and do the same challenge, it would be great to hear from you.


I'm creating a tag called A to Z Challenge, and as I complete each letter I will add a link to it in that tag.  

I have really enjoyed and hope to continue to receive your encouragement.  Much has been said about encouragement on many blogs and you can see why.  It is so uplifting to be encouraged.  My heart's desire is to encourage you in return.  So, tomorrow, I will post my first A to Z post and hope to have encouraged you!

Eph 4 v 29:  Let no corrupt communication proceed  out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

God bless
Tracy

  3. challenges are good and God challenges us daily in our walk to see our faith grow, for us to mature and be stronger ever day....that's what we are made of...each day it's a challenge for us to do right to have the right attitude of Christ to speak well at all times, to guard our hearts...those challenges are what pleases the Lord...AMEN

  5. Hi Karin, Stefanie, and Chelle. Now I feel serious pressure - only joking. thanks for the encouragement.

    Hi Desiray - Yes, challenges are good especially if they lead you to learn more about Christ and believe me, I'm at "H" in my planning and can feel the challenge mounting! Here's hoping God helps me with some good stuff.

    Hi Tracey - wow, that was quick. It would be so cool if you do this too. We can see what different things come up with each letter!

    God bless ladies - your comments are always appreciated.

  7. I have read some A-Z challenges on and off, so I am curious to see what you will come up with. I post only once or twice a week, so such a challenge would take me too long :)

  8. This is a good way to share what Our Lord has placed in your heart Tracy! I like challenges...but I don't want to commit to anything - too much pressure :-)

    Thank you for stopping by the cottage and leaving such wonderful and encouraging words.

  9. Hi Lisa - thanks for the encouragement. I look forward to yours daily

    Hi Marja - who says you have to do it in 26 days? I'm just going to go at my pace. Luckily there are only 26 letters of the alphabet, I think?

    Hi Maria - I'm starting to feel the pressure! No really , I want it to be about things God puts on my heart. The challenge for me is to relate everything to God, not the a-z process so much. thats just the platform.

    Thank you ladies for encouraging me and your kind words. I gladly accept them.
    God bless

  15. Thanks for stopping by Tracy! No, I wasn't in your head... just hoping to bless someone from my own experiences ;)

    I've heard of the A-Z challenge as well, and have thought about doing it myself after my photo story is complete. In the meantime, I'll look forward to what the Lord deals with you to share.

    Praying encouragement, guidance and blessings your way my new friend :)
