that word.. Intentional

it’s  loaded…

but so simple…

done on purpose or with intent…

And so every step (at least almost every step) has been graced with more intention than I can muster.  And that is the point.

I need Him.  I crave Him.  I can’t do this life without Him.

And that is the point.  I’m here to serve Him and reveal His glory.  I’m here to make His name famous.

The Lenten season this year is rooted in an intentional gardening…a giving up everything that keeps me from being in a deep and intentional relationship with Him.

The food that I crave when life is too hard.  The technology that feeds me with man’s praise when there is only One I should seek praise from.  The money that I hold too tightly to or think more highly of.  The things I fill my head and heart with in order to escape.

This Lenten season feels more intentional than past years.  This season feels more important than seasons before.    He’s asked me to not hold anything back from Him.

And so… intentional.

With purpose I’ll walk these next days.  Loving, listening, being present in every moment He shares with me.  Allowing Him to dig in deep and till up anything that looks like rock or weed so that He can make sure the soil that is deep is the perfect place to plant His seed.

 

¹Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.  Ephesians 5:1-2

 

What is He asking of you this Lenten season?
