We enter the season of soul searching, reflection and repentance. Lent is the period of forty days which imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness before his death and resurrection. We each have been in the wilderness for a time.
Today’s scriptures offer us hope and direction for Lent and for our
lives . . .
Listen . . .
Do not fret . . .
Do good . . .
Delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart . . .
Commit your way to the Lord . . .
Trust in Him and he will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn . . .
Be still and wait patiently for Him . . .
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath . . .
The Lord upholds the righteous . . .
The Lord chose YOU . . .
The Lord your God is God . . .
The Lord is faithful . . .
In this season of Lent let us spend time quieting our spirits and reflecting on God’s amazing gift to us.
Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away our sins and the sins of the world.
Amen and Blessings
