We are currently in the season we call Lent. It's a time of preparing our hearts for Easter, and it's a good time to make a change in your life. As Ann Voskamp put it, "Lent isn’t about forfeiting as much as it’s about formation." This Lent season (and hopefully the days, weeks and months following), I want to spend more time in prayer, and I'd like to invite you to be a part of it. Sundays on Wild Olive will (at least until Easter) be prayer posts. Please feel free to leave a comment with any prayer requests you have.
Today as we pray, I want to share a praise. This might sound silly, but my praise this week came in the form of a medical bill. With the doctor's appointments and procedure that I had on my eye, I've been holding my breath, worried and wondering how much this would all cost. (Being self-employed, my insurance isn't always very helpful.)
My statement came, and it was far less than I ever would have expected. As in, half of what I was prepared for! It's not often that you feel blessed by a bill, but I was, and I'm thanking and praising God for being present in these kinds of things.
Please continue to post your prayer requests and your praises too!
