Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled. (NIV)
"Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires,
God will satisfy them fully! (Good News Bible)
We have entered the 40 days of the Lenten Season with today being day 5.
Lent is a time where we turn our thoughts to what Christ has done for us through His sacrifice on the Cross. My dear friend Joy has this wooden cross set up in the center of her home in the hubbub of her kitchen. It is a constant visual reminder of Christ's sacrificial love for us ALL.
Many people regardless of their denomination of the Christian faith observe Lent by giving something up or developing a spiritual discipline, so that they may have a closer and more meaningful relationship with God. Regardless of how you observe Lent, my prayer for you is that God will draw you closer to Him and prepare you for a fresh and new experience of what Good Friday and Easter really means.
How do you observe Lent?
May God's peace be with you throughout the Lenten season.
