Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 8


This can be a powerful word from God or a lame excuse from us. God calls us to follow him, but he knows our struggles so he has provided us with a savior. We know the way we should go, but we tend to stray from that way. The wonderful fact about this word is that God’s use is more powerful than our excuse.

Prayer: Lord, help us to strive to follow your way, but be ready to ask for your help. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 7


A grief visibly shown. The grief most often spoken is of a loss most unbearable. Yet even as Jesus wept he knew God was with him and he did not lose all hope. As we struggle with loss can we say that hope is not all lost? I yearn for the weeping to turn into joy in the morning.=

Prayer: Lord, we share our deepest longings and our deepest hurts with you. Satisfy our desires, heal our wounds, and bring us into the joy of the Lord. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - March 5


Is this what is left over? Or is this what will rejuvenate us? Even God rested before we hear the rest of the story. Some of us long for eternal rest, but I think after a while that might get kind of boring. So maybe the rest God gives us will be that rest which will rejuvenate us to live into the rest of eternity.

Prayer: Lord, help us to see the value of rest in this life and look forward to a more complete rest as we live the rest of our life. Amen.
