I have a confession: I am undisciplined.
I have no shortage of ideas of what to do or how to do them!
What I lack is discipline. Follow through. Commitment. Perseverance.
Truth be told, some of those words make me cringe, like a bright light being shone into dark places, revealing what was hidden.
For this very purpose: confessing what is out of whack and doing something about it.
For nearly two millennia Christ followers have been emulating what Christ must have gone through in the 40 days in the wilderness during the period of time prior to the celebration of the Resurrection.
The remembrance of that time period begins today.
You may not have grown up in a faith practice where the season of Lent was even considered. You can learn more about the history and faith practices around Lent here.
But I will tell you this, slowing down, considering honestly who you are and where you are compared to who and where you’d like to be in your personal growth and spiritual formation is always valuable.
Doing something about what you see is even more valuable.
So for the season of Lent this year, I am going to be journeying publicly, here, daily writing. Yep. Daily. Writing. Here.
Working on the discipline I lack and sharing the process. Being in the work not just in my head. Sharing my process as I learn along the Way. My hope is that you benefit from my journey; that you are encouraged in your own spiritual formation practices and that you’d share some of what you’re growing through with me.
