“The Work of following Christ is like working with a psychotherapist who has a clear insight into what is wrong with us. With incredible accuracy, God puts his finger on exactly the spot that needs attention at the precise time in our spiritual growth. If we are hanging on one last shred of possessiveness, he comes along and says, often through some person or event, “Won’t you give this to me?”
Thomas Keating Invitation to Love
Eternal and all wise God, I release everything and everyone into your care. I’ve held on to stuff so long I forgot to trust you, the one from whom all blessings flow. Forgive me for trying to take your place to do things beyond my mortal resume.
Thank you for putting your divine finger in the exact place on my spiritual landscape that needs attention. Thank you for waiting until the moment was ripe for intervention. I appreciate how you confirmed through others it was time to let go. Yes Lord, I give you everything and everyone trusting you leaning not unto my own understanding. In Jesus name, Amen.
The season of Lent begins today. Traditionally, Lent begins a 40 day journey from today to Resurrection or Easter Sunday. Today is the day we repent of our sins and return to our first love, Jesus Christ. In an Ash Wednesday service, ashes may be placed on the forehead of believers as a sign or symbol of our mortality and repentance.
