Today is Ash Wednesday and I’m excited about the start of Lenten season. For the first time ever, I’ve decided to give up something, but not for the sake of just giving up something. I’m doing it in honor of the One who died on a cross to wash away my sins.
Sacrificing something (which I will not discuss here) for such a great cause makes me feel great about what I’m doing and motivates me to not miss what will be sacrificed for a few weeks. I may end up realizing that I don’t need it in my life after all!
I’m looking forward to spending my extra time getting more in touch with God by reading His word more often, studying devotionals, praying, and listening to what He has to say to me.
My church puts on a passion play this time of year. (If you’ve never attended a passion play anywhere, I urge you to do so. It might just change your life!) I have tickets to see the production on Good Friday and I can’t wait to see it! Hearing the story of Jesus is always a reminder about how great God’s love is for all of us…even those of us who feel that we’re too broken for Him. God heals all wounds and accepts ALL of His children.
Get to know him this season!

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. – Proverbs 16:9
What does this verse mean to you? Are you open to allowing the Lord to determine your path in life? Or, are you insistent upon giving your plan its all?
I’ve lived life both ways, and let me tell you, walking with our Holy Father as the guide for my steps is the best way to live! In the past, my heart knew the Lord, but I didn’t follow Him. Does that make sense?
I’m much more obedient these days, even when I don’t know what the outcome may be. He is faithful and that is more than enough for me.
Love to all!

I love Jesus! I love being in His presence, I love talking to Him, I love the peace that the Holy Spirit showers upon me, and I love that Father God showed me mercy that I did not deserve.
In a few hours, I will go to church to worship in His house with hundreds of like-minded Christ-followers. The highlight of each week is attending Wednesday evening prayer service and Sunday’s sermon and Bible study. Looking forward to tomorrow’s message!
Love to all!
