In today’s Daily Devotions for Lent, as part of our Lent Devotional for Women, we take up a daily affirmation–at least for this Holy Week. We take up a battle cry, “I will not resist God!” determined to finish this Lent strong. The finish line to Easter is in sight, we can do this!
A working definition of daily affirmations is daily declarations of the truth. That sounds pretty important doesn’t? So important it is attacked, daily.
Daily affirmations can literally change the way we think and feel about our life situations. Let’s make the decision to choose joy this week.
