I have been thinking and praying about Lent and the call that I find this time of year has on my life. I never grew up observing Lent so adding this observance into my routine has taken some getting use to. However, since I have begun blogging each day during Lent I’ve found a new spiritual awareness and awakening as we journey towards the cross. Lent is a time of reflection and introspection. We take very little time in our lives to do this. I pray that each of my blog posts will help to point you to your Savior and challenge your thinking in some way. Please pray for me as we near this time: for inspiration from the Holy Spirit as I write and multiplied time- Lent begins March 1. If you enjoy my Advent blogs- be sure to pass them on to friends so they can join us in our journey. 8 days to go!
Here is a word for today: “With what shall I come before the LORD and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I offer my first born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has showed you, O man, what is good and what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:6-8
Blessings as you prepare for the coming of Lent and endeavor to walk with God each day.
