...for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
I don't do Lent but I find it a nice concept. For myself, instead of taking away anything I'm seeking to add spiritually. I'm focusing on memorizing scripture.
CINDY, I don't do Lent either in the sense that some "do". I was not raised in a church that even used the word. As an adult, I've done some study to appreciate the emphasis and have "kidnapped" the focus as inspiration similar to New Year's resolutions to remind me of the grace and love of God invested in me and to recommit myself to obedience to His Word and holy living.
Blessings to you my friend.
I love this!!
"Restored to GOD in some fresh way."Amen! May HE lead each of us in ways that please HIM for HIS Glory.Praying that you have a nice weekend and sense HIS presence in your life.
