I know you shouldn’t really advertise when you’re fasting and such, but I’m kind of excited so I have to share.
For Lent this year I decided to give up sweets and replace them with the sweetness of the Word. To kick it off, I spent time in Psalm 119, soaking in the beautiful verses and searching for some to memorize as I fend off my sweet tooth. In the process, I found some special verses for all of you! So please allow me to share!
“My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to Your word!” 119:25
“My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to Your word!” 119:28
“Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in Your ways.” 119:37 (I thought of hours of destructive googling time and time spent on forums, etc.)
“This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life.” 119:50
“At midnight I rise to praise You, because of Your righteous rules.” 119:62 (I thought of hours of sleepless nights, praying instead of worrying.)
“Let Your steadfast love comfort me according to Your promise to Your servant.” 119:76
“Great peace have those who love Your law; nothing can make them stumble.” 119:165
Also, I would love to hear if you are doing anything special during this Lent season, if you don’t mind saying!
