“The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.” Kent M Keith
We are in the Season of Lent. This is a time of forty days before the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, and we are in day 7 right now. It is a time spent in reflection and preparing to celebrate the Lord's Resurrection. Many spend Lent seeking the Lord in prayer, practicing self control by fasting or literally giving up habits or things of personal importance.
My mind wrapped around Lent this year believing it truly allows us all a time to reset and renew our relationship with God and with Christ. Often praying is a go-to in time of need of bad health or negative things are happening through the year. We then call upon God or Jesus to save us, bolster us up, walk with us and make it 'go away.' Where are we the rest of the year?
This is our 'check up' time with the Power of Heaven. Remember when you were baptized and how you felt close to God as you began your new life in Christ? Lent is the perfect time to reflect on your current relationship and do some fine tuning. This is the best time to renew your baptismal commitment as you watch others take theirs. You may be giving up on some things that are not healthy for your life or your relationships. In turn you are gaining strength in the Lord and building steadily throughout these days to renew and soar with Him. He walks with you and before you, so you are safe. He will not leave you or forsake you. You need never be afraid or dismayed. If you are afraid, He will comfort you. He will encircle you with His light and love. It is through repentance and rest you are saved. Quietness and trust will be your strength. (Isaiah 30:15)
“Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:30-31
