Season 4: It's More Than Just a Fast

It's More Than Just a Fast.png

Lent. It's a season when many of us are diligently trying to keep ourselves from something that we love for 40 days. But it's that mindset that proves how much we don't know about the Lenten Fast.

What I'm learning is that Lent is more than just a fast. It is my opportunity to abide and commune with God. It's my opportunity to meet the Lord in a whole new way, but I will miss that if I focus on what I'm not able to do for the next during the fast.
