It's been amazing how God has stirred my heart and spirit through renewal. Longer prayers, deeper meditation, and the blessing of sacrifice as joint-heirs of Jesus; I long for it constantly. It has drawn our life group closer through encouragement for one another and shifted the focus from purging habits to a deeper relationship. It's made me and my family reconsider what we put in front of us; what we eat, view, read, say, and do. I rest in the fact that my focus is no longer on what I give up, but, what else can I give.
