I have been doing my best to do Lent well. I always have good intentions at the beginning and am determined to pray and fast without fail. Unfortunately, I have not been as perfect as my intentions would have me to be. A particular meditation video that I watched this morning really hit my heart. It said to take heart and not give up. Even if you have not been perfect and have felt like you have “failed”, just start again. Lent is about humility. I think I have done better at that anyways. Instead of throwing in the towel when I haven’t been exactly on track, I have been able to start again the next day. For me, it’s better to take one day at a time. The words from the meditation were very helpful and encouraging.
I Found God today in encouraging words not to give up.
