These next 40 days make up Lent. Lent is a season of reflection, repentance, and preparation as we prepare for the new life celebrated on Easter Sunday. In our busy culture, the Lenten season is a gift. It offers us a time to slow down, breathe deep, and focus on our spiritual practices – those habits that draw us nearer to God and help us to sense the Spirit’s movement in our lives. We hope these daily reflections from the “Running from Empty” 2023 Lent devotional will help you to cultivate attentiveness to the ways God is present in your life.
