Be still and rest in the Lord.
7 But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
will enter your house,
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in awe of you.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
make your way straight before me.
One of the challenges of Lent is to keep focused on worship and God’s great love toward us. We are often knocked off course because we get distracted. We get busy, we begin to believe lies about ourselves, we follow the wrong paths. Our “enemies” may tell us that we are not good enough, or we haven’t done enough for you to love us. These voices can lead us down the wrong paths. Yet your love never changes, and like a lost sheep that goes astray, your love follows us and rescues us. In love, you make a straight path for us to follow.
How will you hold on to God’s great love today?
Lord, on this journey, make your paths straight before me. may this day and every day be ones where I hold on to your great love. Amen
Go with God!
