What are you giving up?

Lent began this past Wednesday and is also known as “Ash Wednesday”. I’ve decided to participate in lent this year because when I think about all the blessings that have been bestowed upon me, surely I can give up my wants in order to get closer to God by clearing out some of the unnecessary items in my life. I plan on giving up reality tv shows, fast food, and social networks. During this time I’ve also signed up for a daily devotional reading plan via the Youversion Bible app. Sacrificing things we love can provide clarity on life and on the things that are true of value in our lives. I hope to continue to get closer God and maybe permanently cut out some of the items I no longer need in my life.
