Today we find ourselves about a week into Lent, the season leading up to Easter. Many recognize Lent as a time of reflection, repentance, and renewal of our commitment to Christ, recognizing the sacrifice He made in giving His life for us on the cross. How has this season been for you so far? Have you added something new to your routine in order to focus more of your attention on your relationship with God? Or, have you selected something to “lay down” as a sacrifice during this season?

If you feel like God is telling you to make space for Him as we approach the time of Jesus' death and resurrection, it’s not too late to participate in Lent. Here are a few resources we found that offer daily readings, study guides, and scripture to help you refocus on Christ:
