Lent: Feed the Hungry (Day 27)

Read: Isaiah 58:10 Reflect: Have you ever been “hangry?” This word originated in the 1990’s and means “irritable as a result of feeling hungry.” My daughter could become the poster child of hangry. She turns into a completely different creature when she gets hungry. She becomes fussy, irritable, mean, and inconsolable. Sometimes, she even refuses to eat when she feels this way. It takes my husband and I 15 minutes sometimes to convince her that if she took a few…

Lent: Tell God’s Works (Day 26)

Read: Psalm 19:1-6 Reflect: I like to make stuff. There is just something so fun and rewarding about making something with my own hands. I especially enjoy taking raw materials and forming something new and unexpected. When I create, I am participating in God’s creation. In the same way, God calls each of us not only to participate in His creation, but God calls each of us to tell of His good works. The sky and all of creation declare…

Lent: Remain in Jesus (Day 25)

Read: John 15:1-5 Reflect: I have these plants. My favorite plants are the ones that are supposed to bloom pretty flowers, but I have this problem…I have a bit of a commitment issue when it comes to taking care of plants. Days, sometimes weeks, go by before I remember to water, feed and prune them. Yes, I neglect them. So, my plants rarely bloom. I think if maybe I had more of a relationship with them I might help them…

Lent: Laws or Love (Day 24)

Read: Matthew 22:37-39 Reflect: Can you remember all the things that you shouldn’t do as a Christian and Disciple of Christ? First there are the 10 commandments, and then there are the morals and lessons in all of the parables that Jesus told to illustrate how to live a Godly life. There are also the events related in the lives of the 12 Disciples of Jesus, like Peter, James, John and Phillip, Thomas and yes even Judas. Jesus spoke a…

Lent: Working the Harvest (Day 23)

Read: Luke 10:2 Reflect: I’m a master at running from suffering. If something bad has happened, I don’t want to hear about it. I hate watching the news; I hate hearing about people going through depressing or bad times. It hurts my heart to hear these things, so I’d rather just protect myself from them. Recently, I was awakened to the fact that I had become apathetic to the needs of those around me. It’s as if I had become…

Lent: Choosing What You Really Love (Day 22)

Read: Joshua 24:15 Reflect: Choose is a word that requires a decision, requires action and requires commitment. Often, we avoid choosing because we must commit and by committing we are saying we will walk to something and away from something else. We are saying it is not possible to do both. What happens when we choose to serve God?- -not when we choose to go to church or be a better person or help those in need–but what happens when…
