Happy Lent and I hope you got in all those meats, desserts, cigarettes, t.v shows, or whatever you are sacrificing this Lent. During this Lent I will have a meditation each day so come back and get your daily dose of Lent.
From the moment he created us, God wanted nothing more than to open the gates of heaven for us. He wanted his love to fall from heaven like a rain shower upon thristy ground. But our hearts became hardened and closed by sin. So Jesus took our nature upon himself and brought it with him to the cross. Not only did he atone for our individual sins, he put to death our own self-centered nature (Romans 6:6)
God wants to bring freedom into every part of our lives this Lent. He wants his grace to surrond us and penetrate us, to warm our hearts, and transform our minds. He knows our needs. he knows our weakenesses. He knows our desires---both good and bad---and he will hold nothing good from us as we turn to him prayer. When we admit our weakness and frailty---when we pray, "Lord I need your grace! I need you!--he will heal us and change us.
