Thinking About Lent

A friend in the ministry sent this Lent guide to me a couple of years ago, and I’ve really enjoyed it.

{Church of England Prayer During Lent}

It has beautiful liturgy, Psalmodys for each day, prayers,
and a short reading for each day of the week.

I end up emailing it to people sometimes, so I thought I would just post it here.

This Lent season I’ve enjoyed quiet and thinking about how the Lord desires
me to have more quiet in my life. When we are so busy that we can’t listen,
evil attacks.  We don’t see our sin as clearly. We feel dissatisfied.
Or we simply can’t see the blessings around us.
We take for granted just how much grace we’ve been given.

I’m thankful for quiet moments this Lent season
as we wait for Easter and the reminder of the Resurrection.

    I’m learning/studying the exact same thing about being quiet! It’s been wonderful how much closer I feel to the Lord because of carving out quiet time for Him every day! You’re a wonderful inspiration (and I can’t wait to see you this weekend!!) :)

      I love what you said. It’s so true. I’m amazed how much we need quiet and how hard it can be to find in our hyper-active culture. Glad the Lord has prodded us on this, and I pray that He continues to remind us of this truth each day.

      And I feel the same way about you, friend!
