It is that time again....
What will you sacrifice?
The Lord showed me something, last year. My sacrifice did not have to be abstaining from food, social media, coke, etc. He showed me, I could also pour into something or someone daily....
This is a transparent moment for me.... last year my sacrifice was to speak life into my daughter everyday, during Lent. Each day I would pick a scripture in the Bible and text it to her or I would send her an affirmation statement. It was a true sacrifice for me.
Honestly, I do not think I completed the task, for whatever reasons.
This year, I am asking God for a new assignment for Lent, a true sacrifice. It is easy for me to give up certain food, drinks, etc., but my prayer is to have a meaningful sacrifice.
God gave us His Son, the ultimate sacrifice. His Son, Jesus the Christ, the only sacrifice that could wash our sins away. The only sacrifice that could give us eternal life.
As you prepare for Lent, ask God what He would have for you to sacrifice. Don't just say what you will give up, knowing you give "it" up every Lent season.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
