Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 18



“See”

Interesting that yesterday we “looked” at the word “light.” To day we consider a word which is used to make sure we are watching what is around us or this word can be used with emphasis accompanying the phrase “I told you so.”  We can see without using our eyes, but can we really see without God’s inspiration?

Prayer: Lord, you know what I need to see and what is not necessary for me to see. Help me to be more concerned about the former than the latter. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 17



“Light”

Light is the opposite of darkness, but also opposite of heavy. Think about those times when you feel heavy, weighed down, overwhelmed, or under a lot of pressure. How can you be lifted up? I think sometimes when I feel inspired, a touch from God perhaps, I am no longer engulfed by darkness, but I have seen some light. It may be at the end of the tunnel, but at least it gives me a hope that soon gloom will be shattered by light.

Prayer: Lord, help me to trust you in the midst of heaviness as well as in the midst of darkness. Amen.

Daily Word for Lenten Season - February 16



“Love”

This is not an unusual word to think about when we think about God. Yet for many of us much of the time when we think about God we think about a judge ticking off those things we do that are good and those things we do that are bad. But it was God who sent his son to save us. It was God who brings us wonder and joy. It is God who prepares a place for us. Love and God are one. How has God loved you today?

Prayer: O Lord, give us the eyes to see, the minds to know, and the hearts to perceive you want the best for us. Help us to receive your love in all its many manifestations today. Amen.
