In this Lent Devotional for Women, we ask the question, “Are you ready for forgiveness?” What an odd question right? Not really. Too many of us go through life carrying guilt and shame we are not meant to carry. The story of the Prodigal Son gives the example of how to seek reconciliation with God.
This Lent Devotional for Women will hopefully encourage you today. But be warned, it will also challenge you. This post challenges the way you respond, rather than react to someone’s anger. It will also challenge your thoughts about your own anger. This devotion for Lent is simple, yet challenging.
In this Lent Devotional for Women post we consider this quote, “A thing cannot give what it doesn’t have.” But then I change it to, “A person cannot love others well if they don’t love them themselves.” I’m a Lent Devotions rebel like that! Lent and love, all part of our daily devotions for Lent.
We are starting off our Lent Devotional for Women with a sort of challenge. Do not be fooled! It seems way to easy to be a Lent challenge. It might be simple, but simple isn’t always easy. As we journey through our devotions for Lent together, we’ll have more of these holy ordinary challenges.
We’re still in the ‘Pre-Lent” stages and that means even more preparation. But we’re not talking about the preparing that involves buying all the things–not matter how good or spiritual. We’re choosing this Lent to prepare with less things so we can be more present.
A totally free Lent Devotional for Women that has a ‘materials needed’ list of three items: Bible, cheap spiral, and random pen from the bottom of your purse. Don’t enter Lent already feeling like a spiritually washed up failure. We’re keeping it simple and we’re sticking together this Lent.
