Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 8)

Wisdom’s Call. This week’s 10 minute challenge in Proverbs took so much longer than 10 minutes! The concept was good, “I’ll illustrate the chapter!” The idea seemed great at the time and I jumped right in feet first, no second glance at the clock or second thoughts…… to be honest, in amongst all the kids…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 7)

Chapter 7 of Proverbs is the most vivid picture of foolish innocence wandering into lust, drifting into adultery and landing in big trouble. If we are tempted to think that God is just a party pooper when it comes to sex, not approving sex before marriage, promoting that ancient tradition of marriage and championing faithfulness…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Proverbs 6)

Last week was hard, for a number of reasons.  The biggest one being sheer exhaustion. There are days I long for a holiday from my life. For me it’s uninterrupted sleep, uninterrupted conversation, and uninterrupted thoughts that I desire. Guilt free down time would be nice. A day with no fighting, no questions that only…

Proverbs 10 min.Challenge (Chapter 5)

As I read chapter 5, all I could think about were my friends going through painful divorces; the grief, the loss, the poverty, the broken hearts, the broken families, the not knowing, the insecurity.

This week before I read Proverbs Chapter 4, I’ve setting myself a challenge to write the lyrics to a ‘song that tells a story’ from it, in 10minutes. Let’s see how that goes! I am enjoying the creativity coming out of this 10 minute challenge. Nothing like a good old deadline and tiny time frame…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 3)

This Challenge is about reading a whole chapter of Proverbs, then responding to it in writing. Posts for Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 can be found here. This week for Chapter 3, I set myself the challenge of writing a short script. Haha. That was before I actually read Chapter 3. Man what a good…

Proverbs 10min. Challenge (Chapter 2)

I talked about this Challenge in my previous post here. I basically read the chapter through, then give my self 10 mins to respond in writing. I plan to do 1 Chapter per week.  It’s a bit of fun and also a great way to study the bible. Last week I summarised the Chapter. This…

Proverbs 10 min. Challenge (Proverbs 1)

Photo by nappy from Pexels After visiting Unbolt Me last week and loving all the challenges they set over there. I have set myself a challenge, to break down the 31 chapters in proverbs, 1 chapter at a time, 10 minutes per chapter over 31 weeks. I’m going to read the chapter, then set the timer…
