Originally I only intended for the challenge to be something that my husband and I did, but after talking with some of my accountability sisters, I decided to share the challenge with them as well as share it on my Facebook and Instagram pages because everyone needs and desires something in life and only God can make it happen. I am excited to embark upon this journey and I am glad I have quite a few people to hold me accountable...because I know the struggle will get real at some point.
My husband and I have decided to do something neither of us have ever done before...observing Lent and fasting for 40 days and 40 nights (Wednesday, February 14 - Saturday, March 31). We are in our first year of marriage and we have been trying our best to be intentional about making sure God is the head of our union. We know that without Him we are nothing and our marriage will not sustain the evils of the world.
There are things in life that we desire right here and right now, but God has not given it to you because it's not time or it may not be for you in this season. We spend so much of our time fighting for what we think we want/need (i.e me fighting to be out of the bed) that we don' t take the time to really be still and wait on God's voice to tell us when to move. It is only when we are still, that we can truly be in God's presence and hear or see what He has for us.
