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.
As we know, today is the last day of 2017 and time and time again we have been guilty of saying “New Year, New Me” or “This is my Year,” but after a week or two, we go back to the same old me in a new year. Too many times we set goals for our lives, but we aren’t willing to put in the work to truly achieve them.
