Catholicism | the pages in my storybook
We’ve got one more week til’ the conclusion of Lent, and I’ve got to say that it’s working. This whole fasting bit for sure, has really opened up my eyes and has given me a freedom that I haven’t felt in awhile.
What I’ve been fasting has been one of those leeches that slowly would suck my time away. Giving me less time to focus on more important matters. What’s also helped is using this unused time and putting it towards something positive for myself, and that’s been these daily lenten reflection blogs. Each day, I have to stretch my brain and silence my heart to find God in the retrospect of the past day.
So fasting has been great, but doing something positive alongside it has truly been the part that has provided me freedom. I’ve been thinking about it along the lines of being dropped off in a lake or ocean. It becomes a sink or swim situation.Holding my breath, and doing without air for awhile will keep me from drowning, but I’ve got to put my energy and time into swimming as well, to get out of this precarious situation. I not only have to fast, but I have to do something that gives me freedom.
So keep swimming friends. Freedom (Good) Friday is almost here.
