Well, this lent has not gone exactly as I expected. As a family we have often fasted from something together (as we shared last year in our posts much more faithfully than this year I sadly add), which is a great accountability factor!
However this year we decided to each do our own fast, personally I didn't do so well! However the whole point of fasting is in drawing nearer to God, putting aside our selfish desires to deepen our walk with Him in preparation for Easter.I have been blessed in many little ways this lent season and look forward to Easter with a renewed awe and overwhelming peace in the incredible gift that has been give to us!
A lovely spring has been refreshing after a long winter, seeing the NEW life spring up all around, reminding once again the old has gone the new is come!
Tonight we were blessed to take part in a demonstration seder Passover, with Jews for Jesus. To see all the connections from the Old Testament ceremonies is just incredible! the one that we had learned about before but once again reminded us how God works even the little things into a part of the whole plan has to do with the matzah bread tradition. (for more information on that you can read about the 3 pieces of bread = the triune God here)
I pray that Jesus is your passover lamb and that this Easter you will be filled to overflowing in God's great love for each of US!
