every year for Lent loads of Christians, no matter the denomination, choose to give something up for 40 days. we do this in remembrance of what Christ did for us. a sacrifice of some sort, although we could NEVER come close to what He sacrificed for us. this “lack” is supposed to help us press into Him more. It’s supposed to help our prayer life and cause us to rely on Him when we miss what we give up.
for some years now i’ve tried something different, instead of something physical or technological i’ve been choosing some type of mental awareness or mindset.
this year: i give up the spirit of poverty! now i know He has ALWAYS taken care of all my needs and that will NEVER change and my faith has never wavered in regards to this. but in my head it’s really tough not to look at the situation I am in and let it not affect me. i will strive for a consistent headspace that reminds me God always has more than enough. He always provides!
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
