    EASTER : Mardi Gras - Ash Wednesday - Lenten Season

    EASTER : Christians celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Christ on the third day after His crucifixion. It is the oldest Christian holiday and the most important day of the church year because of the significance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the events upon which Christianity is based (1 Corinthians 15:3-4,14). The four Gospels make it clear that Jesus was crucified in conjunction with the Jewish Passover (Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-15; John 18:28,39; 1...  Read More...

A Patience Fast

As a challenge to embrace the Lord's timing during this lenten season (40 days leading up to the celebration of Easter on 3.31.13), we are encouraging a patience fast.

What would you give up to embrace the Lord's timing?

Here is my public accountability for a patience fast... I am going to fast from "extra" media influences in my life to embrace the Lord's timing more!

  • I began by deleting all the game apps and social media apps (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest) from my phone... I will embrace extra time in scripture.
  • I will cut out all extra time watching TV that is not with the family... again to embrace the Lord's timing to encourage others.

I dare you to join the patience fast.... post your comments below.

I will cut out extra T.V. time that is not with family. I will find time daily to embrace quiet, without media noise.

I have given up Pinterest and have deleted the game I replaced it with. I have now started an online devotional.
