Forty days of Lent: What it Means to Me

Hello Everyone! 🙂

Today I went to Sunday church Mass, even on this cloudy day it still felt good to go. I was kind of afraid it might rain but it did not, it was cloudy and cold February day. I did not care if it was raining, I still would of gone to church Mass.
Today is the first day of Lent which reminds me of the importance of growing closer to God and to repent, to turn toward the Lord. I read the church bulletin after Mass, and learned that “to convert” means to turn toward.” To turn towards God and Jesus Christ. We have to turn our hearts towards God. Personally, this is something I have to work on because sometimes I feel like I am not yet fully connected with God and Jesus Christ. I am learning not to turn to negative people and things and more on God and Jesus.
I learned the hard way that praying and turning to Jesus is essential in order to have faith in Him and have Him in your life because He is the Savior.
Will you give up something these 40 days of Lent?
Me I will only give up thinking negative thoughts and always be surrounded with happiness, positivity, faith, and hope. I want to make these forty days and beyond, the best years of my life. I want to feel God’s presence in my life.
