Lenten Reflections – week 3


March 13, 2017
The mystery/complicated nature of “already/not yet” allows me to prepare for the death/burial/resurrection of Christ while also being confident that He has already conquered the enemy. It’s the victory that I often need to grab hold of during times storms or times of uncertainty…

I can’t deny my southern/country roots! While I was cooking breakfast, this is the song that “dropped in my spirit,” as the old saints might say! πŸ™‚ When going through tough times, it helps to remember the times that God brought you out!

“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.” -Revelation 7:9

I hope we don’t have to wait til we get to Heaven to experience this.

Draw nigh to God, especially in the times when your instinct is to push Him away…

β€œSimon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” – Luke 22:31-32

Sometimes, we go through seasons when we are under so much attack that we figuratively and literally can’t pray. I’ve been there. This song played on repeat. I’m sharing it today for whoever needs it right at this moment. Remember that, in those times you can’t seem to utter a prayer for yourself, “the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans” (Rom. 8:26b).

Even during some of my darkest storms, there has been at least a sliver of praise still hanging on. It comes from inside of us – let it out!

I heard a random snippet of notes on the tv last night that sent me on a mental journey trying to figure out “What song is that from??” Glad I figured it out. I don’t know about you, but my heart is ever grateful to God.
