“Let today be the day you give up who you’ve been; for who you can become.” – Unknown
I found this quote to be so inspiring and encouraging for this season of lent that has just begun. I’m not going to get too deep because I’m not trying to push my beliefs on anyone and don’t want it to come across that way. But if you know me, you know my relationship with Him is the most special part of my life and I do whatever I can to give the glory back to Him. Lent is about simple living, prayer, fasting, and sacrifice in order to grow closer to God. Traditionally you give up, or “sacrifice”, something during Lent. I am doing that, but also adding 4 things in it’s place.
- What I’m giving up: TV – cable, YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc.
- What I’m adding in it’s place: 30 min devotional each day, more reading for fun, fasting one day a week, and attending/live stream church EVERY Sunday
Do you observe Lent? If so, I would love to know what you gave up and we can help hold one another accountable!
Thanks for stopping by!
