For the last week or so I’ve been seeking God on what I should seek to lose. I’ve considered Twitter for a second year, but really want to make a decision based on His desire for me.
One verse I forever remember from my two years in Christian private school is Romans 12:1. Paul instructs us to offer ourselves as living sacrifices. Giving up ourselves for Christ. Losing that which keeps us bound to other altars.
I want to lose those things. I want to get up off the altar that wants to burn me up in its passions and offer myself to God and God alone.
So I’m seeking Him on what He wants me to lose.
Have you practiced Lent previous whether as part of a community of believers or on your own? Are you planning/considering practicing it this year?
