Heavenly Father, it’s so easy to get so caught up in doing things for you that I forget to spend enough time simply being with You. Please help me grow in close, intimate relationship with You as I spend time in prayer, reflection and seeking spiritual renewal this Lenten season. I don’t just want to know a few things about You, God. I want to know You and be known by You. Matthew 7:7 promises “…seek and you will find…” I’m seeking YOU today, God. Please reveal Yourself to me in mighty ways. Amen
Lent, by Jean M Watt
Lent is a tree without blossom, without leaf,
Barer than blackthorn in its winter sleep,
All unadorned. Unlike Christmas which decrees
The setting-up, the dressing-up of trees,
Lent is a taking down, a stripping bare,
A starkness after all has been withdrawn
Of surplus and superfluous,
Leaving no hiding-place, only an emptiness
Between black branches, a most precious space
Before the leaf, before the time of flowers;
Lest we should see only the leaf, the flower,
Lest we should miss the star
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear…” Psalm 46:1-2
