God responds to those who seek Him. As we begin 2021 and come before God in prayer over the next 21 days, we ask Him to help us work on ourselves, by renewing our expectations, giving us new perspectives, and by launching us forward into the plans and purpose He has for our lives. You will be tasked to complete 21 days of No Frustration, along with a unique challenge for each day. Specific scriptures are also provided to help guide you in successfully completing the challenge for the day.
 

Take 21 minutes of your day and divide them into three 7-minute intervals.

  • Read for 7 minutes consider the suggested scriptures. This may require you read the scriptures repeatedly. For a broader understanding, we recommend reading the text using at least two different translations. Consider translations such as the New International Version (NIV), The Message, or English Standard Version (ESV).
  • Take 7 minutes to prayerfully respond to the suggested scriptures and the challenge for the day.
  • Take 7 minutes to sit in silence and be fully present with God. You may find this to be uncomfortable or awkward. Quieting the noise both externally and internally allows you to move into your day more receptive to God’s presence and guidance.
