In this Lent Devotional for Women post we consider this quote, “A thing cannot give what it doesn’t have.” But then I change it to, “A person cannot love others well if they don’t love them themselves.” I’m a Lent Devotions rebel like that! Lent and love, all part of our daily devotions for Lent.
We are starting off our Lent Devotional for Women with a sort of challenge. Do not be fooled! It seems way to easy to be a Lent challenge. It might be simple, but simple isn’t always easy. As we journey through our devotions for Lent together, we’ll have more of these holy ordinary challenges.
Welcome to the Lent Devotional for Women, daily devotions for Lent series of posts. Today is Ash Wednesday, let me introduce the motto I’ve chosen for this series of devotions–Nothing Except for Today. It’s a quote from Therese the Little Flower and just because it sounds simple doesn’t mean it’s easy.
I’m laying it all out today. I share the moment my anxiety got out of hand and how I found healing in part, through Bible quotes.
For someone who has needed lots of grace, I’ve needed more. This post explains what may look like faults and mistakes to others are actually saving me.
If courage is willing to take risks for Jesus Christ, let me encourage you that you don’t have to be thrown to the lions like the martyrs of old to be considered courageous. Take your all your kids grocery shopping, say “No” when everyone says “Yes” or “Yes” when everyone says “No.”
