A Lenten Journey - Faithfulness

The poem "A Lenten Journey - A Modern-Day Psalm" has been divided into weekly devotions consisting of a short Lenten meditation followed by a Celebratory Praise. Take some time during the week to reflect on the Lenten meditation—see if you can find some part of yourself in the words and then have a heart to heart conversation with God about it. Then on Sunday, take some time to celebrate the love and grace God has lavished on you. (The poem in its entirety will be posted on Easter Sunday.)

Teach me, Oh Lord.
Show me the way to honor You.
I seek only that Your desires be mine
that Your sacrifice and grace be honored
in my words
and in the proceedings of each day.
Command me Lord God and I will obey
not for fear or for profit
but in the deepest love and with tremendous gratitude.
Lead me Lord and I will follow –
Follow You through the end of days
for You are worthy.

Rejoice! Praise the God of heaven and rejoice
for the Lord has created in me a faithful heart.
He has reached out to me in His love
with grace and blessings.
He has called me His own!
