Lent Reflection Wed. March 25
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus. Luke 1:31
Today, try visualizing Jesus in your mind’s eye. Think of all the blessings he has bestowed upon your life. Remember his healings and provisions. Recall the lessons he has taught and all the wisdom he has shared.
Consider repeating the name over and over again.
Slowly and purposefully.
See what comes to mind.
