Happy Lent, everyone! Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the 40 days and nights Jesus spent in the desert, fasting and enduring the temptations of the Devil. In this way, Lent is a time for us to fight against the many temptations that flood our lives and turn our faces to the Lord.
Not looking so glamorous, but I feel that probably sums up Lent in a face. Looking away from one’s self and looking to what one can share with others. Putting ourselves even more second to God and what He is calling us to do. Forget the fancy clothes and descendant food; for Lent, God and Jesus’ sacrifice should be the better focus our internal selves. We need to put aside the business of our days to find the silence and Peace of God in our every day lives.
Speak Lord; Your servant is listening.
