We’re halfway through Lent.
Right now, stop reading, and write down (or think of) three things you’re struggling with the most.
Maybe it’s the fasting.
Maybe it’s that your schedule is absolutely nuts with kids’ activities and family obligations.
Maybe your kids are off the wall bonkers these days.
Maybe you’re just not sleeping.
Maybe Lent is just one more thing on a huge pile of Stuff you have to deal with.
Now, take three deep breaths, and let them out slowly.
Take a moment to pray, and tell your struggles to God. He’s been there the whole time. He’s here now. And remember, all you have to do is give today over.
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” — Matthew 6:34
