Reflection of the Week - 3 March 2020

Posted in Faith

Do you see this season as a time for good intentions;

of a temporary 'giving up' of something for Lent?

Focus on God's Word to discover what God really wants from you today.

 

"Yet even now, says the Lord, return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping and with mourning; rend your hearts and not your clothing."

Joel 2:12-17

 

Lord Jesus Christ, my ideas of discipline, my promises to give up material things that I like, are trivial and frivolous.

Forgive my outward displays of contrition, and point me to the way of true repentance, in remembrance of your own disciplined sacrifice on the Cross,

Amen.

Today I will ignore the temptation to 'rend my clothes,' but instead, take the time to examine my heart, and seek and find forgiveness.
