What Do We Accomplish During Lent

We are in the season of Lent which is a time or preparation, reflection, and discovery. We walk with Jesus during this time and meditate on the Journey to the Cross. We engage at a deeper level inwardly and we really Go Deeper within to address areas in our lives that we need to surrender to God. To break that down a little bit--During Lent, we seek to change things in our lives and mostly in our hearts that we know need to change in order to be all that God wants us to be.

One way you can do that is by keeping a journal. In your journal, write each day the things you have done and said that you sense are pleasing to God and those that you wish you could change. If you see a pattern of particular difficulty, begin to develop and action plan that will help you to change in that area of your life.Look at that time as a time to Journey to the Cross. You will be in essence working to put whatever issue you have to death once and for all. As you do, look toward Resurrection Sunday as a time of Revival!

I invite you to Go Deeper in this season!
