As we start the Lenten season, you see posts on Facebook and Twitter of people announcing what they are giving up. I say this every year...is it our business what you are announcing you are giving up? Not really...it's really between you and the Lord. And it doesn't always have to be anything physical (if that makes sense) like meat, sodas, sweets, etc. It could be something like giving up an hour of TV or computer time or whatever is hindering your walk with God.
I always hearken back to Hebrews 12:1,2 (New Living Translation)
We don't all have to walk around like modern-day Pharisees and proclaim what we are giving up for 40 days. Pray that during this season God will strengthen your walk with Him...and if it means going without a Dr. Pepper or a Braum's hamburger, so be it!!!
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to continue to strip off the weight that slows me down ;) ...
