This is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I wish I was kidding.
I actually lost sleep last night worrying about whether or not my friends, family, and clients would forget about me in the next 40 days. I began to panic. WHAT AM I DOING?!? Am I committing career suicide? Did the Lord really tell me to take time off social media for Lent?!? I was so nervous I almost started crying.
That's when I realized I was doing EXACTLY the right thing. Satan always attacks us when we're at our most vulnerable and I was absolutely feeling vulnerable last night. And who better than him to make me question what the Lord is or isn't doing in my life.
I'm claiming some big ground spiritually y'all and he wasn't having any of it.
I finally fell asleep but tossed and turned all night, finally giving up around 4:45 this morning. One thing I noticed right away was the astonishing clarity I had about why I was doing this and even remembered to shift my focus to the Lord when the temptation popped up to head to my News Feed. It's one small victory and I'll take it.
I don't know what the next 4o days will bring - or take away - but one thing I know for sure is, I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing and I'm right where He wants me.
