How are we doing?
Are we staying strong in our commitments this Lent? I can say that for me, I was starting to sputter out about a week ago and it took a serious rant at myself to get myself back into gear. Because it’s hard. If it wasn’t hard it wouldn’t be worthwhile. Nothing truly worthwhile is ever easy. And it never will be.
So how are you doing? We’re 75% (roughly) of the way through Lent, and no that doesn't mean we start slacking off and going 75% in our Lenten sacrifices or duties. It means we go 110%. And as Easter continues to approach, getting closer and closer, that’s when we ramp it up even more to 115%, and then 120%.
This is something I always think of when lifting weights. As you near the end, you push yourself harder. When you get weakest, you push yourself harder. You never slack off just because the end is in sight. That’s is only an excuse.
Keep it up! It’s hard, but it’s all worthwhile. Talk to you all soon.
God bless. Zac.
