Lent is upon us and as we prepare to observe it, I thought I would compile a list of some things you could give up this lent. If like me, you are struggling to decide on what to fast from your life, take it to the Lord and ask Him to guide you to admit and recognise the areas in your life that need work, prayer and focus for the next 40-days.
