I get to self loath with purpose and faithfulness!
I struggle with what to do for Lent. I have fasted once a week. I have given up food, drink, bad personal habits. I have also added prayer, silence, abstinence from habits and or random stuff.
I wrestle with what to do this year. This is my last one prior to leaving seminary (I hope!). I better make it a good one. I want to succeed in a sacrificial and devotional posture that proves I am repentant and remorseful of what I have done and what I have not done.
What to do?
I seek to control my environment in this practice. I hope to lose weight so I dream of fasting my way to a healthy physique and spiritual life. I hope to become pious and righteous, so I pray and read the Bible. Just so I can get the proper attention and adoration of a scholar and saint.
This year I have considered two things; giving up all forms of visual stimulating entertainment (TV and movies) and leaving it up to y’all.
So I open the vote to you on Strove Tuesday, perhaps it is super to you as well…
Vote in the comments section. Thank you for participating in the election of my ecclesiastic future.
