#1 - If you want to Follow Christ - to truly be His disciple. IF you desire to be used as an instrument of spreading the Good News -- be prepared to pick up your Cross (daily, sometimes hourly -ok, sometimes 'secondly'). There is NO doubt He's there with you but that thing (aka cross/burden/issue) can still get PRETTY heavy at times! Thank goodness for His promises shared with us in scripture...
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
#4 I loved all the extra time not watching TV gave me, I pray I can continue this discipline now that Lent is over!! **Because EVEN with that bonus time I am still insanely behind on my ministry projects ... see #5 for more on that
#6 Goofy Instagram posts like this (see above) usually garners more 'likes' and 'comments' than this (see below) #weirdworld
