In our 31 Day Focus Challenge, trust me, I have wanted to slack off a few things. I have felt the tug of my flesh whispering, “Oh, you can do it later..” It’s a battle of the mind but I promise I am winning!! With my vision set before me, I realize, I can’t afford to get off track. Too much to do. My advice on this day is for us not to be ships without sails. If we are going somewhere, we must raise the sail of vision so that it can be visible for us and all around us. I am determined not too just drift in this season. I’m not going to be tossed to and fro by the winds of life. Instead, I’m holding steady to God and to His principles. I am holding on to the vision He gave me and to the promises He made me. Things are happening for us even though it’s a press. Don’t let the wind and waves mess you up. You are on a journey. Set your sail. Hold on to your vision, and your compass too. We need the Holy Spirit to help us get there. Every step of the way and everyday we need God’s help. Keep us on course, Lord!! Keep us focused!!! Our vision awaits!! 31 Days of Focus. Stay on track.

-Tara Alexander

Try This: Take 31 Minutes for 31 Days to do something that can possibly benefit you for a lifetime!!

Join us from July 1st-31st as we take time to focus on our vision, discipline our lives, develop new habits and renew our minds! There is so much distraction in this world that we feel the need to get back on track by spending quality time obeying what God has for each of us to do. Pray about what you need to do this month to help you get your focus or maintain your focus.

We’re challenging our church family and our friends to be a part of this time of renewal with us. Some are fasting from certain foods, some are abstaining from certain music, others are focusing on exercising just 31 minutes a day, some of us are even spending less time on other things to get into the word. This is going to be exciting!! Just pray about what you can do to make a change for the better and get you back on track to success!!

Last night I visited my friend’s church. Pastor Laurie is a powerful, talented and creative woman that I have known for more than 16 years now. (She’s getting older not me). What’s amazing about our friendship is that we have both grown so much in these years. Little did we know that both of us were called to ministry. (Still pinching myself!) God is soooo faithful to use ordinary women like us to lead His people.

I am so inspired by my sister. Pastor Laurie Adams is the real deal. She loves God and she loves the people she serves. When I look at her, I am so encouraged that God could use me to do even a piece of the great work she is doing. I don’t feel anything but love when I’m around her and her family. I am talking about a real sisterhood in ministry. She shares ideas and even allows me to use her ideas at our ministry. There is no competitive undertone between us because we understand that we are on the same team. Voice of Truth -LaPlace, LA (Pastor Laurie’s church) and Champion Church (where I lead) are a part of the larger body of Christ. When they win, we win!!

My prayer is that we have more of these type of relationships. Ministry without godliness is really not ministry at all. The root of thing determines the fruit of a thing. It is sad to say that some of us are only experiencing partial victories because we allow the enemy to place seeds and weeds of division in our minds. Just imagine what would happen if we would check and correct ourselves in this area. Imagine the effect of us really working as a body. Functioning to glory of God. Sharing resources. Each joint supplying the other. God would be greater glorified if we would have the faith to believe that unity is possible and the humility to repent and uproot anything the devil has planted in us.

Thank God for Pastor Laurie Adams and her wonderful church family. Thank God for everything I have learned from her. My life is so enriched because I have her as a sister and a friend.
