Three weeks into Lent and we can be filled with a sense of achievement thinking we're doing well. we’ve continued to give up what we promised to, or we have continued to do the things we said we would. Reflect for a moment on how your Lenten journey has progressed.
If you think your Lenten observance is going very well, then think again – you may have stopped journeying ! Consider why you chose to undertake the Lenten journey in the first place Has your observance become a substitute for the journey ?
Spend some time reflecting on your journey and your openness to God’s presence this Lent
Consider letting go of everything you have undertaken this Lent – can you let go of your observance, or does the thought of ‘giving in’ bring on feelings of guilt ? I so why ? Perhaps it’s time to think of a different Lenten observance maybe – maybe not !
