Lent started yesterday with Ash Wednesday. During this time many people give up something for the 40 days. With me having a baby sometime during Lent, I am not giving up something in the standard way people do. Instead I really want to focus on digging out sin in my life, reflecting on the cross and seeking to be more like Jesus intentionally every day. Yes I realize I should be doing this any way, but lately I really haven't and I have found myself falling into old patterns over and over again. Christ died to get me out of my sin patterns. He conquered sin for me so I could overcome.
Jesus, help me overcome my sin!
What are you giving up/focusing on for Lent?
