Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday; the beginning of Lent.
As I reflect on the coming season I have been thinking about a Lenten discipline to engage in. Not that you have to do something or give up something, but “something” has been tugging at my heart. It’s been tugging for a couple weeks now. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it but I think I finally know what that “something” is.
Starting tomorrow I am going to do something that I haven’t done before…
Well…actually I do pray daily but what I am going to do for Lent is engage in the discipline of writing out my prayers in a prayer journal.
That is new for me.
I write prayers for worship and for this blog but I have never done so in such a personal and intimate way. Never in a way to track and see what God is doing in my life. I have never gone back to prayers I have written to see what God did with it. I am not going to write those prayers here, but I may share experiences of this discipline here.
But I am curious, though…
Has anyone out there done this or does this on a regular basis?
Do you even engage in a spiritual discipline?
Do you give anything up?
Whatever you do, may you have a blessed Lenten season as we make our way to the cross and the empty tomb.
Praise be to God!
