Lent

The season of Lent begins tomorrow. Lent has always been a powerful, but usually challenging season for me. I love the emphasis on death, suffering, and reflection. I find great power and meaning on the journey to the cross. I enjoy the challenge of adding and subtracting things from my life so that there may be more of God and less of me. God has always spoken to me in powerful ways throughout the season of Lent. There is a sense of anticipation for me as Lent approaches, and while it is often a challenging season, I am thankful for it. Each year I expect more out of Lent for me, and this year is no exception. That said, its been a challenging several months and I am not sure what that means for this particular season of Lent. It all lends itself to the need for greater trust in God in the midst of both spiritual and the temporal.
