40 Week Renewal of Our Life

My wife and I are starting a 40 week renewal of our life. We don't really want to call it a fast but rather a new way of thinking. We have broken it down into 5 areas of our life. We have spiritual, physical (diet and body), family (parenting and marriage), financial and ministry. We are coming up with scriptures to claim over ourselves every day and start with changing certain things we think about, certain ways we eat and any bad habits we might have. This is going to be an ongoing process so we don't do it all at the same time. We have found in the past that when we do a certain diet--we are heavy for a week or so then we fall back into our routines. This way we are going to make some gradual changes over a 40 week program and build on each one of the areas.

Below are the scriptures for week 1.

Spiritual—I Can

Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


* Diet- no aspartame
* Body-

Proverbs 25:16 If you find honey, eat just enough too much of it, and you will vomit


* Parenting-

Joshua 24:15 But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD

* Marriage

Joshua 24:15 But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD

Financial- Deuteronomy 8:18, But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.

Ministry- Deuteronomy 28:7 The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
