For Lent


Goodbye Laziness, 
I'm ending our relationship.
Breaking up with you is long overdue.
You've been lounging around here in my flesh for far too long. 
Wasting time. 
Self-indulging.  
Demeaning me. 
Robbing me of life with your excessive idleness. 
We're over.
Done. 
Finished. 

Hello Diligence, 
You lead. 
I will follow.
 Follow You to the cross
Everyday
To put laziness to death
For the next 40 days of Lent.
Dieing to self-love.
To be 
Resurrected 
With Christ,
Faithful.

  What in you needs to be put to death on the Cross
this Easter? 
What would you like to see be resurrected in you?

Beautiful!

Today I contemplated sending a snarky message (which was essentially gossiping about another person) I hit delete. That's what I need to put to death this year: being gossipy and instead focus on goodness in others.
