So I’ve been thinking about Ash Wednesday a lot over the past couple of days, trying to figure out whether I was going to participate in the catholic tradition of lent, and I decided I am. I am not catholic and I do not agree with the catholic faith, but no judgement here! I enjoy the whole idea of resisting temptation for 40 days like Jesus did in the desert. I am excited to challenge myself, and my faith during these 40 days to see what God is going to do through me while I choose to resist my desires and face temptation consequentially.
I believe in the power of prayer, fasting, and self denial. I am hoping for really amazing things.., God has yet to disappoint thus far! So, from this period from Ash Wednesday to Easter, I pray that God continues to change my heart and my actions in such a way that others notice something is different. God can do immeasurably more than we could ask or ever imagine!
I’m ready to embrace this challenge!
Stay beautiful! Xoxo
What are you doing for lent?
