I won’t and can’t say I’ve always honored the Lent season with sacrifice. As I have grown and matured in my faith, it’s not just a time to pick something and suffer through for 40 days, but it’s a time of sacrifice.
It’s a time of reflection and a time to grow.
Sunday’s sermon was about sacrifice. It’s definitely worth you time.

I can honestly say that I have no idea who or what I am supposed to sacrifice, but I DO KNOW that there is time spent on Facebook and Instagram that could be used for better things.
I will begin by giving up Social Media for the 40 days of Lent (February 26- April 9) and this will allow me to readjust this app on my phone that seems to take up way more time than it should.
Sacrifice is not giving something up but bringing a part of yourself near to God.
While I will not be on Social Media, it’s not about putting down the phone, which is still a real thing I will be seeking what I need to bring near to God
As we have spoken about the Lent Season in our family time, it’s already brought time together reading scripture to our time
I have invited a sweet friend to read the Enneagram book “the Road back to you” during this Lent Season. We both know we are a 2 on the Enneagram and we have seen that this number means something but we are not sure how to walk this road.
How do we become better?
How do we learn about ourselves to be better to those around us ?
I think that these things will hopefully point me in the way of sacrificial living.
Here I am Lord.
Use me as you will.
