As Ash Wednesday begins, millions of Christians will begin the 40-day journey of Lent, preparing their hearts and minds to fully celebrate Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection on Easter morning, just as we are beginning here together as we “journey to the cross”.
As we begin this journey today, vowing to prepare our hearts to fully accept the gift of grace on Easter morning, what if we simply asked God to help us experience an awakening over the next 40 days that would lead us to fully accept His gift? What if we asked that He consume our lives with His presence and His will so that we can wake up Easter morning ready to experience His love in an amazing new way?
We encourage you to spend quiet time with God during this Lenten season, letting Him guide you. We will be joining you each day in our Instagram stories, sharing His Word, inspiration, and specific prayers from Journey to the Cross that you can pray each week as you step out in faith and take this journey toward the cross.
You can also read full excerpts from Journey to the Cross on Wednesdays at DaySpring and on Saturdays at (in)courage. If you enjoy this series, purchase the book to experience forty days of encouragement and guided Scripture, reflections, and prayers.
