Lenten Lament

Anyone else noticing that whatever (or whomever) you gave up seems more present now than before Ash Wednesday? I mean, it hasn’t even been a week. We have a month to go and I’m already tempted. I suppose, though, that that’s entirely the point. Jesus had 30+ years to avoid committing to the cross and chose us over that immense sacrifice. The least (and I do mean very, very, very least) we can do is choose him over what we gave up. I may need you to remind me of this next week…or tomorrow.

One thought on “Lenten Lament

  1. I hear ya! It is definitely a battle. I feel like every few hours I’m like, “Okay Lord, I’m surrendering this to you again.” Of course, the harder it is, the more I realize how necessary it was to make the decision to give that up in the first place. 🙂
