This coming Wednesday is Ash Wednesday – the start of Lent. (Which means Tuesday is pancake day – yum!!)
This year for Lent I am planning to accept change & try TRY not to stress over it.
(As well as similar things as last year; giving up coke, less screen time in the evening & continuing to declutter & donate items that are still in good condition. Feel free to read last years post HERE)
We are currently facing a massive change in our lives, it may or may not happen – but if all goes ahead it will be a new chapter all together for us.
Lent I believe is the season of life, death & new life, a time for repentance & transformation.
In our lives that can be reflected as living, repenting & starting afresh or living, going through something hard & coming out the other side ready to start new.
For us we are looking at beginning a new journey – but as in all changes in life – we have to trust God & go with Him & not try to force our paths. So if it happens, it happens.
In our lives I have found that the right changes & opportunities just happen for us – they aren’t forced & they happen fairly easily – if they aren’t meant to happen it is obvious and things just won’t work out. So that is how we are approaching this next possible chapter of our lives, if it happens, it happens.
It is no secret that 2016 wasn’t a great year for us, besides a rough pregnancy & my health issues we also dealt with a lot of personal hurt and ended up needing to make some hard choices on the people we allow in our lives. Basically life has been hard & pretty hurtful. We are now at a point we just want to make a fresh start for ourselves. Even if it is just mentally – we are leaving the hurt, stress & anguish behind. Ideally we would like to make a physical fresh start – but we will see how that will pan out.
Lent 2017 will be a busy time for us, a time that our life may change drastically – but it may stay the same – who knows. I know our life has already been mapped out for us by our Lord – so where we need to be, we will be and what we need to do, will be done. We just have to watch how it unfolds & go with it – but I feel it is time for a change, so I am excited.
I know this post was very vague & didn’t explain much at all, but I assure you as things happen & become more permanent I will explain more, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself.
What are you giving up or doing more of for Lent?
