Good morning my friends. Today is the first day of lent and I got up early to spend some time with Jesus. I don't normally participate in lent, but this year I decided it was time to make a change. It's time to fast from those things that are keeping me from meeting with Jesus every day. For me, that means losing a little sleep - waking up a bit earlier to dive into the word and spend time in prayer. Time that's focused on Him, not just done while multitasking three other things.
(I'm also giving up Starbucks because that's another excuse I have for not making time in the morning. This is going to be a really hard one, friends.)
This morning I was reminded that Jesus gives us hope. And I'm hoping that these 40 days will be just the beginning of intentionally setting aside time to spend with the Lord.
Are you participating in Lent? What are you giving up for the Savior?
