Think about those times in your life when you have felt inspired to something really great. Where does that inspiration come from?
The Holy Spirit. God inspires us to do great things with our lives.

Songs to Help Me Focus on Lent

I love music. I love to listen to it, I love to play beautiful songs on my flute. I know it's a beautiful song when it makes me cry; I guess I'm sentimental that way. Or maybe I just appreciate musicians who touch my heart. Anyway, I compiled a list of songs to help me focus on Lent. These are songs that I've come across that help me reflect on how sacred this season is.
Here is a sample of my playlist:

♪ Once and For All-Lauren Daigle (I listened to this during Adoration.)
♪ How Beautiful-Twila Paris (An oldie but a goodie. I listened to this in Adoration and ended up with tears streaming down my face as I gazed at Jesus on the crucifix with the Eucharist under him)
♪ Feet of Jesus-Steven Curtis Chapman
♪ Remember-Laura Story
♪ Wounded Healer-Audrey Assad (She has so many beautiful songs that are so appropriate for Lent)
♪ Desert Soul-Rend Collective (This is a band from Northern Ireland. I just recently discovered this song.)
I made a Spotify playlist instead of listing all 50+ songs. Click on the picture below to be taken to it. Don't be confused by the username. 

What songs help you focus on Lent? Let me know in the comments what I need to add.
