Lent Reflection Tuesday, March 3
What needs to be “set right” in your life? Is there a relationship that needs healing? Is God inviting you to spend more time in prayer? Are you being called to pursue a new job or develop a gift that has been dormant for years?
Lent is a great time to pursue holy changes.
But change, the kind that God invites us to pursue, can be scary.
It’s much easier to keep doing what we are doing, even though we might be miserable.
Today, take a moment to close your eyes. In the quietness, think about what needs to be altered in your life. Ask the Lord: “What do you want to set right?”
