Thirteen years ago, after being diagnosed with breast cancer, I received a rather bizarre challenge from my mentor. Her challenge was, “Try spending 20 minutes praising God for five days.” At the time I thought, “What a crazy idea! I have just been diagnosed with cancer. The last thing I feel like doing is praising God.” But after wrestling with my thoughts, I decided to give praise a shot, after all what did I have to lose? What I experienced during those five days left me with an insatiable appetite for more: more of His presence, more of His love, more of His mercy and more of His power. God’s presence became more tangible, and I began to change into a more positive, confident, and secure woman. The changes occurring in me were undeniable. I believe that, praising God radically transforms our souls. This is why I wrote The 30 Day Praise Challenge. (Release date, August 1. DavidCCook Publishing)
“If you take this challenge, you will change. You will re-fall in love with Jesus. You will experience more joy and peace, less insecurity and envy, more boldness and courage, and less fear and anxiety. Your faith will grow and the fruit of the Spirit will be more evident in your life. You will find that the chains that once bound you are broken, and you will experience more freedom than you ever dreamed possible!” Why don’t you try it? What have you got to lose?
