Lent can be a time to slow down and be present in your life, aware that God is intimately involved and working.
“Whenever God does something new, he involves people – often unlikely people, frequently surprised and alarmed people. He asks them to trust him in a new way, to put aside their natural reactions, to listen humbly for a fresh word and to act on it without knowing exactly how it’s going to work out. That’s what he’s asking all of us to do this Lent.” –N.T. Wright
We can use the 40 days leading up to Easter to meet with God in many different ways. In fasting, service, or prayer we can seek and acknowledge God in order to align our hearts with His.
All of us at GO invite you to join us during Lent in connecting with God and connecting with His people. Try one of these things and connect with us to let us know how God is working in your life this season.
Pray : Be intentional in praying for your sponsored child. Ask Him where and how to be involved in fighting poverty and seeking justice. Listen to what God has to say.
Fast : What is one thing you can step away from that will create more space for God to speak into your life? What can you simplify in your life that would lead you into greater intimacy with Jesus?
Serve : Serving and journeying alongside others is one way we serve and worship God. What would it look like to put your gifts and talents on the mission with GO?
