Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 18


Sometimes the words just don’t come. Sometimes it is the last thing we feel like doing. It is hard to admit we aren’t in control or we don’t have a clue what to do next. We are taught to be independent, self-sufficient, and a leader who directs people not someone asking for advice. Yet maybe we need to admit part of being a Christian is being vulnerable. It is admitting we need help from others and most importantly God.

Prayer: Lord, I don’t know what to ask for at times and other times when I do I am not sure I really want to hear your answer. Help me to take a moment today and just sit in your presence, listening to the breath of your Holy Spirit, in the silence around me. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 17


When you know what you are doing is not life giving, where do you turn? When you know what you are doing is leading you down the wrong path, how do you stop? What if you aren’t sure what is right or wrong, where can you find the answer? Jesus was not the compliant Jew. How did he know which way to go without compromising his calling? You tell me.

Prayer: Lord, I am tempted at times to take the easy path, but also sometimes I am tempted to be reckless. Lord, help me to discern when I am being tempted to turn from my calling and when I need the courage to go a different way. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 16


Our body is amazing. Just think of all the intricate parts that function so harmoniously, most of the time. It is this body which God wishes to inspire here and now. It was his body which took the brutal punishment so in the next life we can have a new body. Yet our body is not not just something for the future, but also to be used in the present to bring glory to God.

Prayer: Lord, how could anybody question whether you are the author of our body. There is nobody who is not somebody in your sight. In fact everybody is a gift from you. Thank you for the new body we will someday receive. Amen.
