Dear Precious Friends,
As we walk into this season of preparation for Easter and remembrance, we prepare our hearts for all that Jesus went through for us and for the incredible gift He gave us of His resurrection.
I am sharing a great reminder of things we can do to do to draw us closer to our Lord...especially during this time of reflection and focus on what Jesus did for us so we could have eternal life by believing and receiving this gift.
Many different Christian religions celebrate today as Ash Wednesday where ashes on the forehead are placed as a reminder to become aware of our mortality and that it is only through God that we can achieve eternal life.
As we focus on the incredible gift of Jesus and what His coming and dying on the cross means for us, I love to commit these 46 days of preparation for Easter, by adding something that brings me closer to the Lord (spending more time with Him) and take something away in my life ( distractions) that draws me closer to the Lord.
We are image bearers of the Most High God. We Matter so much to Him... let us hold fast to that which strengthens our soul... and create time and space for Jesus, time with Him in His word, time to pray and reflect, and most importantly to REMEMBER the incredible love He has for us.... to reflect on the gratitude we have for who He is and what He has done.
Let us stop procrastinating on the important things and engage in that which will draw us closer to the Lord .
"This is real love-not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins."
1 John 4:10
Have a blessed day knowing the great love He has for each of us and what our gift of Jesus and His death and resurrection means... Everything!
