Lost in the Desert of Lent

I think that I am lost in the desert. Hope that I find my way out by Easter.  My desire to
lent desert
pray more, fast more, give more, and blog more has not translated into action.  Yes I know that there is still time to get my act together.

Lent is about turning back to God. It is about accepting God’s mercy and forgiveness for sin and transforming ourselves. It is about growing in holiness. Why is it so hard?

Just looking upon the cross and realizing what Jesus has done for us should be enough to motivate us.

If I want to become a saint, I have to get off the couch and get on my knees.

    Susan, you inspire so many people and draw them to God and that takes a lot of effort and time on your part to do this. I think God knows what is in your heart, so don’t be too hard on yourself. May Gods blessings pour down upon you.
