I did not know, at the time that I felt the calling, what I would write about. Through a lot of prayer time, I believe that I need to focus on being the best person that I can be for God. But what does that mean? It was time for me to embark in unknown territory and to focus on Lent this year as a time to grow personally. I have been doing a lot of reading over the past year and a half since I spend a lot of time in airports and hotel rooms with traveling for my work. I have been reading a series of books by Vince Flynn and once I start getting into a book, I have a hard time putting it down. I have decided to give that up for Lent and to substitute it with books that will help me grow as a person and teach me how to be more Christ like to those around me.
Between books, blogs, the Bible and devotionals as well as daily conversations with God, I am trying to grow closer to Him and what kind of person He wants me to be. As I am going through this process and continuing after Easter, I will share with you some of the areas that I am working on. I would like to know through your comments, how you are approaching Lent. Did you give up anything? Are you focusing on an area of your life? Do you set aside a particular time of day for prayer and meditation about it? I would like you to help me to get the most out of my journey.
God bless all of you as He has blessed me.
