Day 3: “And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words.”(Romans 8:26)
Prayer: Father, I want this time of surrender & fasting to bring me close to You. Please keep me quiet about whatever I sacrifice, let it be a sweet secret between the two of us — fill me with Your Spirit, and let that be my reward. Amen.
The perfect trio at @sv_bakery 💙 It has been a week now that I decided to cut chocolate out of my diet until Easter - the 40 days fasting. I am surprised how easy it has been so far, yesterday was the first day I was really craving it🤤 Last weekend at @sv_bakery it has been a little challenge as well, especially because my bf ate a chocolate cookie😅 But I went for a blueberry cone and it was delicious💙 How is everyone else’s fasting going?
“At the cross her station keeping,
Stood the mournful Mother weeping,
Close to Jesus to the last...”. -Taken from the Lenten song, “At the Cross her station keeping.” During this Lenten season, let us be like Mary, who stood at the foot of the cross gazing at the crucified Christ. Let us strive to keep our eyes fixed on Him as we offer our Lenten promises to help bring ourselves and others to Him.
Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, have mercy on us in Your kindness.
Heb me voorgenomen om 40 dagen geen snoep of chocolade te eten. Ook gedurende die 40 dagen iets gezonder te eten. Ben nu een week verder...en probeer zo goed mogelijk vol te houden. Bij deze wat meer fruit als tussendoortje 😘 #40days#lent#nosugar#healthyfood#yesican
It is never too late to begin. I am so excited join in with all my @blessedisshe__ sisterhood in making this very special Lenten Journey. Yesterday I downloaded the Digital Download of She Who Believed. This Lenten Devotional/Journal is beyond amazing! Full of so many spiritual fruits. I am blown away at how my relationship with Christ is being called so deep and transformative to say the least! I am also so thankful how it is opening the Bible to me in so many new ways.
I pretty much yesterday dived in full force. And spent the day catching up. It was so profound and beautiful! This Morning I awoke with such Joy to begin again. Wow. Wow. So, beautiful written and designed. And the Download is easy to follow on my Laptop. I have my Bible and a notebook to journal in. It is working perfectly.
So, if you are on the fence like I was... climb over and meet Christ on the other side🙂.

Don’t Give Up Gratitude (1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”) It’s the antidote to worry, anger, and misery. Every November, social media seems to be flooded with people declaring what they are thankful for. While I absolutely enjoy reading what others are thankful for, gratitude is something we should practice every day. SO often, we are focused on all the things that are not right in life. However, anyone ever notice what seems to happen in November when we all seem to get this feeling of thankfulness? Good things begin to happen! We are focused on the GOOD in life and not as consumed by what is not right in life. Plus, gratitude has incredible benefits: gratitude creates joy, builds contentment, creates hope, creates/deepens healthy relationships, and opens up opportunities. Expressing gratitude towards others is easy (simply send a quick message to a friend or coworker), and can do AMAZING things for relationships. How will YOU express your gratitude today? #lent#40days#journey#dontgiveup#gratitude#behappy
Day 7 | The Betrayer
As long as you hate your enemy, a jail door is closed and a prisoner is taken. But when you try to understand and release your foe from your hatred, then the prisoner is released, and the prisoner is you.
Taken from "On Calvary's Hill" by Max Lucado and Charles Stanley.
Day 3 of #Fast40 // Today's fast is for a friend who is healing from a difficult divorce. Praying God is closer than ever & protects her joy & children in the midst of being heartbroken-- Lord, don't let bitterness put down roots in that family. Instead, protect their spirit & flood their hearts with Your hope & healing... In Jesus' name! #40Days#PrayerandFasting
Today marks day 8 of Lent. Join us in today’s prayer.
O God, who cleanses and restores us even when we have questioned your will instead of simply receiving your Word: Grant us wisdom from our mistakes, that they might become vehicles for sharing your goodness, and that we might become faithful ambassadors to your Kingdom. We pray in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ————————————————————————
