Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 11


Wrongdoing. Something horrible. A stain. What word do you associate with “sin?” Sin is actually exactly what we weren’t made for. I find it interesting that both the Hebrew word and the Greek word is better translated as “missing the mark,” like in a target, a bullseye. It is not something we were destined to do or say or think, yet like in a whirlpool we tend to move towards its clutches. The good news is that Jesus has broken the hold, the force which pulls us down so instead we can become redeemed from our sin.

Prayer: Lord, help me to not live on automatic, slowly moving toward the center of the whirlpool. Instead, Lord, help me to receive your hand of grace, that I might break free from that tendency. Help me to live in a new direction that brings me life and the vibrancy to the world around me. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 10


No cost. Released. Unencumbered. Is this something you long to have? Is this something you long to experience? Is this something you take for granted? Sometimes when we are free we aren’t sure what to do. Perhaps this has more to do with who we are than our circumstances.

Prayer: Lord, it is though you we can truly experience freedom no matter what surroundings we have. Let us give thanks for being free because of your presence in our life. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 9


“No Way,” “Way to go,” “The Way.” An incredulous exclamation, an affirmation of an achievement, the label used to identify a new faith called Christianity. People who followed Jesus were said to follow “The Way.” Not the right way, not the wrong way, but just ‘the way.”

How would you define “the way” you follow?

Prayer: Lord, thank you for showing us the way. Help us to listen when the way becomes confusing for only you can show us the true way. Amen.
