Last year, I wrote this post about my newfound discovery of the true meaning of Lent and how it is applicable to me as a normal average woman who believes in Jesus Christ.
Coming to learn the purpose of this season as being one of preparation added a depth of understanding of Lent that I had never had before.
Similar to last year, I am entering into this season with my focus being on how I can grow and be prepared for whatever God has planned in the coming season. This year I am joining author, teacher, and speaker, Margaret Feinberg’s #LentChallenge of reading through the Gospels (the New Testament books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). If you’d like to join in, this post from Margaret provides the reading plan for these next 40 days.
I am expectant for God to use this season to purify my motives, solidify my backbone, and clarify my calling.
What are your expectations for this Lent season?
