Reflecting on Lent

He (God) has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God! Micah 6:8.

I have read so many Bible verses in my daily devotions and in my Crossways Bible Study that I was sure I could choose one to use as a foundation for writing something inspirational for Lent. I never could decide on one, so I decided to write about what Lent means to me.

Lent is a time for me to reflect on my life and to center on God. How do I do this? I give up TV or Netflix and maybe reading mystery books for Lent. I usually start reading a devotional book, one that gives me some inspiration to pray or journal about God. Giving up things at Lent is sometimes a freeing feeling, taking temptation away and opening up time to focus on God. It is a time of cleansing and peace for me.

I pray you peace this Lent.
