A Good Beginning
Todays six minutes need to be spent asking God how we should spend Lent 2007
We all have a fairly large stock file of resolutions in the back of our mind, an ougha-do list. These are the resolutions we usually pull out when Lent begins (or on New Years Eve.)
Perhaps wed do better to put those aside for now and find out what God has in mind for us. There might be some surprises.
Put yourself in the following scene: Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
You are now on the mountain with Jesus. Its peaceful, with a wonderful view in all directions, and plenty of time to be alone, one-on-one with the Lord.
Talk straight with him and ask him to give you some thoughts about what to write for that previous post.
Lovely idea, to begin to prepare for Lent now, in advance.
What a good idea. The fact that it hadn't occurred to me to ask God what He wants me to do with Lent shows what a tizzy I've been in for weeks :-).
Thanks for all the Lenten preparatory threads, Salvation. I now know that I will be on an "Internet Fast" this year. It will be VERY hard for me, as many of my friends live in my computer. ;)
However, I also know that I will be able to focus more on the Lord during this season, as it should be. My family already knows, so it's a done deal! I will check in on Sundays.
