Lent tends to be a time people fast but are you aware scripture encourages fasting throughout our life? This is slightly inspired by my prayer series which started with Are You Praying… At All?

I've been playing around with looks since last year and thought maybe you could help me. I've made all the logos from free sources 🙂 The idea is my blog is about the inside cup, we have to be cleaned from the inside out as Christ taught and this naturally shows on the outside.
