The minute I choose to give something up for Lent I want that thing more than ever. It can turn into a self-defeating dynamic that has little to do with the true purpose of Lent.
The idea of Lent is to renew and strengthen our spiritual life, growing closer to God. It is a time of conversion – leaving behind old ways and embracing a new way of being.
As I ponder this, I am left with both a question and the answer.
Wow . . .
“What needs to change?”
That’s my weekly wow. Look for yours this week.
