Lent is almost over. Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, followed by Holy Week. Do you feel that you haven’t spent sufficient time doing the things you promised yourself you would do this Lent, like fasting, praying, meditating, etc.?
Yeah, me too. But here is the good news: It’s not too late. If you intended to fast this lent, start fasting today. If you wanted to pray every morning, start doing it today. If you promised the Lord that you would meditate on the scriptures this Lent, start meditating today. Whatever your intention was, do it beginning today. Don’t assume that because you didn’t follow through on your intentions so far, you have failed and should just give up.
God knows that changing our lives, even in small ways, is difficult for us given that we all are creatures of habit. He forgives our lack of discipline, but hopes that we will continue to try to be more mindful of His presence in our lives.
So don’t be discouraged, keep on trying. It’s not too late!
