Yesterday I posted briefly about my topic of blogging over lent - Life Life. It is an exploration of what Jesus meant when he said "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
The running joke at work currently is 'life is already full.' There is a lot of work, a lot of things to do and therefore a lot to keep my desk full! But I'm convinced that Jesus meant something different to a practically full working day.
One of the ideas behind lent is to give something up for the next 6 weeks. My plan is an attempt at slowing down and making space. I am very good at filling my life, making myself busy, but I'm pretty poor at stopping resting, but also stepping back and taking time to think things through.
It wasn't my initial plan to slow down this lent, however an unexpected empty evening reminded me of the importance of taking some time out. ReLENTless showed me some of the importance of making sacrifices for more important things in my life. I am hoping that Live Life will help me to think through what I am prioritising as important!
I am expecting to publish about a post a week. Each post with a different theme - Fast, Pray, Thank, Give, Serve, Reflect. We'll see what happens!
