Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 26

“Die”

This is the last word. The last word I will send you a message about. But certainly not the last word for those who are in Christ. When we say this word out loud how does it make us feel? When we say this word out loud what do we think of? I pray for you that this is not the last word.

Prayer: Lord, thank you that this is not the last word for us. Thank you that we can look forward not only to Easter, but new life, transformed life in you, both now and forever. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 25


“Gethsemane"

This word speaks of a horrifying event, but also the prelude to a magnificent one. Jesus seeks a garden to commune with his father, but also uses one for proclamation of a new beginning to the women. The disciples who accompanied him the night of his arrest fell asleep. The women who were confronted with his resurrection became alive. In a garden decay can become new life.

Prayer: Lord, help us in the garden to which we go be one from which we will grow. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 24


“Prune”

I love to see plants flourish, yet if they aren’t pruned they tend to become overgrown, entangled, and a mass of convoluted branches. There is little, if any, fruit. They do not produce as they were designed to do. And we? Are there areas in our life we need to have pruned? Are we too busy, too entangled, putting energy in places that sap our ability to produce fruit?

Prayer: Lord, we are thankful that you are the Master Gardener. You are the one in whom we can rely to help us say "no." You can help us put energy where it needs to be directed. Lord, help us to hear your words, even if it means ending something so we can redirect our efforts. Amen.
