I Declare

By Brenda Jank

Hey my friends, this 125-word declaration has the power to change your life and the lives of those you love.

Consider reading it through twice. First, silently and then again out-loud.

  1.       I will work – rested and empowered.
  2.       I will rest – with joy and delight.
  3.       I will not violate the rest of another.
  4.       I will inventory my bucket and equip others to do the same.
  5.       I will prioritize the habits that shape my soul and fuel my go.
  6.       I will model for others a rest that was not modeled for me.
  7.       I will let God have His way with my guilt and shame.
  8.       I will live loved, live free, live rested, empowered, and sent.
  9.       I will engage in this last surrender. I will give God full access to my time, my energy, my work, and my rest.
  10.       I will champion a life well lived.

Did these declarations capture your heart? This week, this month, take one declaration at a time and turn each one into a prayer. Replace the “I will” with “Lord, let me … “. Grab a notebook and write each one down – then journal your thoughts, bullet your prayers, and go where the Spirit leads.
