Checks and balances, describes Lent 2013 for me. The checks and balances of my life are my spiritual life and relationship with God.
I ask myself……Am I allowing God to be in charge? Am I feeding my Spirit? Am I nurturing my relationship with the Beloved?
Where do I need a balance of peace, joy, steadfast faith and trust right now? It is easy to get unbalanced in life. For example, as a sister, it has been easy for me to be caught up in the busyness of my ministry and routine prayer.
In these weeks of Lent as I check and balance, I give God thanks for this desert time to slow down:
to be still…God is my center and my refuge;
to ask…help me see blessings and joy that I would otherwise miss;
to listen… be attentive to prayer in forms I would not recognize;
to wait and hope… for Easter Will Come.
How would you describe Lent 2013 for you?
