Posts Tagged ‘Lenten’

For the last few years I’ve blogged through the 40-days of Lent. Some years I’ve written about things we could give up for Lent (i.e. guilt, people pleasing, expectations, comparison, whining, etc.)…other times I’ve written about what to add to Lent (gratitude, rest, encouragement, margin, compassion, etc.).

I didn’t attempt this 40-day adventure of writing last year. The discipline became a drudgery, instead of a joy, so I decided to be sporadic and only blog as I felt led. Well, that was a big flop. Without the accountability, I never wrote at all. Sometimes I just need a list to keep me on track…squirrel!

This year, I’m participating in a 40-day Lenten Bible study with some wonderful women in my church. I’m excited, as I usually am, to start something new. The study involves elements of fasting, candles, Scripture study, prayer and sabbath…all areas I lack in discipline. As the days progress, I’ll be sharing things I’m learning.

I’ve discovered wonderful resources dedicated to this time, from daily to  weekly devotional emails to book studies (like the one I’m doing). I hope you will choose to spend some focused attention on the Lenten season…the 40-days preceding the death (and resurrection!!) of Jesus.
