Lenten 40


Today marked the beginning of the Lenten season, which is the time in our lives set aside by the Christian Faith as an Introspective time meant to discover one’s truth.

As I say to listen to my pastor’s sermon this evening, I was touched by his words, so much so, that I wanted to share them with all of you.

He started shining a light on the coming Spring, by presenting the idea that our spirit will soon bloom like the blossoms; you see, by giving your entire attention to what God is doing in your life at this very moment, this is the only way you will blossom within the context of your life.

Today we begin the 40-day journey, by giving up something we hold dear as did Jesus, and we begin to feel and better understand by lamenting his pain in our hearts, as did he on the cross.

Our lives are so trivialized, we seem to live in constant fear, whether it be money or challenges of life that can overwhelm us… Matthew 6 explains that by placing our trust in God we step closer to discovering what we have been seeking all along, the meaning of God’s love, will grant us the spirit of TRUST!

The Cross will imprint the spirit of God’s love to show us the way… If you just believe!

P.S. In case you are wondering, this year I have chosen to give up… Doubting Myself! I need to believe in my strength and my self love just a wee bit more! I’ll let you know how my 40 day journey goes!
