Lent is always a beautiful reminder to keep our eyes focused on the cross, the heart of our faith. I pray that you may have a fruitful Lent to renew, repent, reflect, revive & rejoice.
In Him,Are you giving anything up? Do you partake in the mini-Easters on Sundays during Lent? What's your favorite thing about these 40 days?
Here are my answers, but I want to know yours!
1. Yes, I'm limiting the time I spend looking at blogs, am giving up sweets along with taking on a few things.
2. Personally no, but it's completely acceptable to do so!
3. Lent helps me recenter myself. I think it's a beautiful time for spiritual growth, and it forces me to remember the sacrifice Jesus made to show us his love.
Want another perspective? He's got a good one.
"This combination of our dedication and God’s grace and power can make this Lent a time of real transformation for us. Every day this season, God will give us countless opportunities to come and receive from him. Every day, he will give us countless invitations to turn from sin and turn to Christ. And every time we respond to his invitation, God will shower us with love. He will take the 'little death' in every act of self-denial and turn it into a shining testimony to his resurrection." -Daily mediations
