In the morning let me know your love
For I put my trust in You.
Make me know the way I should walk,
for to You I lift up my soul. (Ps. 143:8)
This morning this verse spoke to me. As I strive to attain a deeper friendship with our Lord during this Lent, I pray to know, to experience His love for me each day. And even though I have made my resolutions for this Lent, I need to be attentive to His voice letting me know what He wants me to do each day. So my part is to make sure I make time for Him - my daily appointments with Him - so that in the silence He can speak to me and I can hear His voice.
Most of the time I don't have the will power to stick to healthy habits - like drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, avoiding night-time snacking, etc. But the discipline of Lent helps me. What I can't do on my own, I can do if I am offering that sacrifice to the Lord! I know my body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit, and that He wants me to keep if healthy. And since it's the only one I have (LOL!!) , I need to keep it healthy if I want to be around a while longer, and continue to do His work!!
So I am really trying to be disciplined in many areas this Lent..... spiritual and physical!
Let's remember to pray for each other as we journey.... towards a deeper relationship with our God, and towards a healthier Temple for His Spirit!
Blessings and hugs to each of you! And thank you for your loyal friendship and your support!
