Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the season of Lent. I am relatively new to the tradition of observing Lent, so I won’t at all profess to be an expert in the area. In fact, last year was the first in which I ever attempted an observance of the season. If you too are new to this tradition, or would like to learn more, I found some helpful information here, at biblegateway.com
This year I decided that in addition to giving up something for Lent, I would read a book by Lysa TerKeurst called “Made to Crave, Satisfying your deepest desire with God, not food.” It has come highly recommended, and I’m delighted that a number of friends have indicated an interest in joining me. If you have read this book, or are planning to read it, or would simply like to make any kind of comment concerning Lent or desiring God, please do so below. And as always, I encourage you to make comments on each other’s comments!
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, let us also love one another. No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is made complete in us.” I John 4:10 – 12
In His Love,
