So what does God hope for me this Lent?
In some ways, the answer to that question will be different for each of us but for ALL of us, God is certainly hoping that:
- we’ll leave behind some unnecessary and even unhealthy baggage, habits, faults and failings - and that’s why we fast in Lent…
- we’ll grow closer to him each day, inviting him into our lives and allowing ourselves to be drawn more deeply into his love, his word, his truth - and that’s why we pray in Lent…
-we’ll reach beyond ourselves and our own wants and desires to be of service, especially to those who are most in need - and that’s why we give alms in Lent…
What might God be hoping Lent will be in your life this year?
Will you spend some time before Ash Wednesday to pray about that?
