Lent - Giving Up Caffeine


Yesterday was the last day of lent so today I am back to drinking my regular caffeinated coffee. I am excited to be drinking regular coffee again because I really do love it. Through lent, I did learn that no matter the situation, it is important for me to maintain a steady level of self control, everything in moderation you know. Prior to lent my moderation was way off balance and I was using, "I am a new mom" as an excuse for too much of my coffee and treat eating habits.

I believe God wants us to enjoy our favourite things and find pleasure in something as simple as a great cup of coffee but anything, even a simple cup of coffee, is bad for me if it is not in moderation.

I am always super grateful for the lessons I learn at the end of lent, this time can often be a challenge but the rewards for going through any challenge, far outweigh the trial in the moment. I knew this wouldn't be an easy task for me but I did have faith that anything I do with the help of God, can be a success. I also learned that it's ok to ask God to be a part of every facet of my life, even something as silly as giving up caffeine, He wants to be a part of it all.

Easter is a time of new beginnings and today I am feeling really refreshed. I hope you have an amazing Easter weekend with your family and friends and that the Easter bunny brings you lots of chocolate to enjoy in moderation ;)
