How many days start with a whine… a toddler-like but I waaaannt it? Yesterday, online at Barnes & Noble, I ordered 3 books $35. Then my daughter stopped by, so we grabbed dinner at a little place just down the street $27. Today, I read a plea for help on a friend’s blog and hesitate to donate $50, telling myself perhaps we can’t afford it.
How can we not?
Like a child throwing a tantrum at the mall, I latch onto things impulsively, not rationally. I am lured in by the anticipation of crisp pages in a new book. I ignore planning a meal, paying a local restaurant to cook for us instead.
I embrace the infantile impulse me me me.
Today, in the little red book I am reading each morning, Beth Moore explores God giving Paul an all-expenses paid trip to his destination Acts 26:29. She writes, [God] gives us what we need, not what we want.
Day 10 of the Trust30 Challenge asked: If you could spread your personal message right now to 1 million people, what would you say?
Today, I would say 2 words: Please Donate

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could.”
What is one thing you can do that would make today worthwhile? What’s stopping you from getting started right now? JD
