Look to these encouraging words from Scripture to inspire your day.

Lent might be proving more challenging for many of us this year with COVID-19 in the mix. Whether those candy bars are calling your name and proving hard to resist, or you’ve decided to challenge yourself to improve your spiritual life in some way, you might be struggling to keep it up and wonder how you’re going to make it to Easter.

Look to the Bible for some encouragement to help you stick to your plans, and to reach Easter Sunday with even greater virtue and faith. The best part about it? These verses won’t just help you through Lent, they’ll keep you going through the entire pandemic, and beyond!
