five for friday: lenten lessons











  1. I need structure and schedule. That’s not a new lesson for me, but it’s one I don’t think I’ve quite grasped. One of my goals for this weekend is to sketch out a better daily schedule for myself – something that takes into account devotional and prayer time, daily exercise, homeschooling, kitchen time and homekeeping time.
  2. I turn to food to deal with stress. It’s a habit I’ve been struggling to break for as long as I can remember, and is truly an area of bondage for me.
  3. The more stressed I get, the more I crave sweets. And grains. And all the other stuff that my body just doesn’t run well on. And the more I give into those cravings, the worse they get.
    It’s a vicious, ugly circle.

And when we can’t take another step
The father will pick us up and carry us in his arms
And even on the best days He says to remember we’re not home yet
So don’t get too comfortable
Cause what you really are is just pilgrims passing through

These past six weeks have shown me some changes I need to make moving forward. That schedule is a necessity, as is getting sugar back out of my diet. I’m starting the 21 Day Sugar Detox with the group starting Monday. I need to focus on the blessings and the positive God is bringing into my life on a daily basis.

This hasn’t been the Lenten season I envisions, but maybe that’s not a bad thing.
