When You Fail at Your Lenten Fast

Ever had a Lenten fast that just flopped?

Me too.

You can have the best of intentions at the start of Lent, but if it doesn’t work out, throwing in the towel all together is a real temptation.

But don’t give up!

Whenever you find yourself starting to slip, stop yourself right away. Put your phone down as soon as you realize you picked it up without thinking, or wrap up the rest of the hamburger you started to eat on Friday.

God doesn’t expect us to be perfect in our fasts, but he does expect us to keep trying.

GREAT NEWS! We’ve reached over 100,000 downloads of the Tightrope! This is a huge landmark that I’m excited to share with you!! Let me know what you think about this show in the comments!

“When we fast and we fail, it reminds us that we are in need of a Savior.”
