T’was the night before Lent
All my strength hath been spent
Then came along this one desire
Do something else to light the fire
It is not but another Lenten year
And life still holds much fear
Who can say when I will go
How much knowledge I will know
This I hear ringing in my head
With Jesus I am to be fed
But then the clatter once again
My life is not something to bargain
So this night before Lent does start
What is my sacrifice from the heart
Pray I must now to heaven above
So I can show greater love
As I sit here tonight, which the complete intention of doing my homework, I can not help but let my mind drift off to thinking of what I am doing for Lent. Yes, I always hold off to the last moment. Sure, I am giving up all sweets on account of that is what we do here in the house. There are so many things that one could do for Lent, but I want to do something that means a little more than giving up food or Facebook or such things. I want to do more than adding just another rope prayer into my day. The prayer and hope I have is that when meditation comes around, God will inspire me to what shall be for me this Lent.
Have you thought seriously enough about what God is calling you to do this Lent or have just picked something because it is challenging/easy or what everyone else is doing?
Who is Jesus to you and what is He worth in your life?
