This devotional is uniquely designed
to bring us closer to God in a variety of ways.
You will find different styles of devotions throughout this booklet. Each day is designed to offer a venue for growing closer to God through the scriptures, silence and prayers.
Most of the days are created by me, but I have to give
thanks to Michael Doerr and Carolee Finkle for contributing
their gifts from faith as well.
May this devotional be a blessing to your faith
This Lenten season. I know it’s been a blessing
Creating for us.
Ash Wednesday! The beginning of Lent. It’s a today to begin the journey to the cross and resurrection. Lent is a time to reflect on our lives, name our sins, cleanse our lives...It’s a time to prepare ourselves for amazing things that happen during Holy Week and Easter.
That sounds all well and good and lofty doesn’t it? Sounds like a good thing to do. But it’s not easy. Self reflection and letting go of our sinful nature have a tendency to be comfortable. It’s comfortable to overeat, be lazy, watch TV/read a good mystery, play outside, golf, work late instead of read scripture, etc. etc.
Lent is a time to spend time with God. God created you, right? God loves you, right? God is present all around you, right? It’s time to devote a little bit of each day to being in his presence aware of his fingers lovingly molding you.
