Lenten Revelations: The Anticipation Continues...

This season of Lent has been a time for significant spiritual growth for me.  During Lent, it is important that Christians focus on our relationship with God.  Many people "give up something" during Lent.  I sometimes ask, "Will giving up _______ strengthen your relationship with God?" or "After Lent is over, are you going to stay away from _______?"  If the answer to either or both is "No" then giving up _______ does not bring about spiritual benefits.

I decided that I would not "give up" anything, but rather, I would spend more time praying and studying God's Word.  That decision was a wise one.  Consequently, I have gotten much needed clarity on several areas of my life.  For example, my career and ministry paths are more clear for me.  I have developed a greater appreciation for Jesus' ministry.  Studying the Gospels during this season has given me deeper insight and new perspectives on Jesus' teachings.  I am growing in my knowledge and understanding of the Word.  My faith in God has increased.  I am excited about other revelations God may make during the remainder of Lent!  I will be still...with anticipation.

How is God blessing you during this Holy season?  Please share.  Feel free to leave a comment at the end of this post, follow the My Faith and Fitness blog on Twitter or request to join the Facebook Encouragement Group or become a Facebook Fan of the blog.  You can also complete the form on the Contact page.  I will continue to pray that you remain encouraged.
