You are Invited

My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.  Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.  Job 42:5-6

Today is Ash Wednesday and you are invited to consider, at the beginning of Lent, what this means to you.  People around the world gather in churches to confess and repent today.  Whether you attend a service or not, what does this period of Lent signify in your life?  Will you live through the following days to Easter as you usually do, or will you do something to acknowledge the approach of Christ to Good Friday and all He did for you? How will you spend this period of Lent in 2016?  How does God want you to commemorate this time?

May God bless you as you spend time with Him today?

 

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
