How is your Lent going? Have you been slowing down? Have you been fasting from something? Have you been taking on some practices?
After his baptism, Jesus went to the wilderness for 40 days. It was a time of temptation, internal struggle and preparation for the time to come. The season of Lent is also a time of reflection, repentance and preparation for Easter – we learn to die to ourselves so we can live more fully in God.
What struggles have you encountered in this season? What is God trying to tell you through them? What growth are you seeking?
Slow down, pay attention, reflect and repent.
A time of “haphak” – a time to turn around and be transformed.
