The season of Lent, the Church’s observance of the 40-day Lenten season leading up to Easter is just around the corner! This year Lent begins on Wednesday, February 14.
So for the next 40 days (starting February 14th) I will be posting a weekly blog post centering around the season of Lent.
Throughout the Scriptures God uses seasons of “forty” to work in the lives of His people. To test. To renew. To grow. To direct. Forty designated a time when God engaged humanity in exceptional, memorable and life-transforming ways. Our desire is for God to do something extraordinary in our lives during this moment of forty spent in devotion to Him.
Like me you may not have grown up observing Lent and be unfamiliar with it but I hope you will join me anyways. More than anything it’s yet another opportunity to be intentional in creating space in our overly-busy lives to pay attention a fresh work of grace in our lives.
