Psalm 102:1- “Hear my prayer O Lord; let my cry for help come to you.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
During the days of Lent, the Hebrew people would throw off their own clothes and would don clothes of sack cloth. Usually when they wore sack cloth it was because of a death in the family. But now during the Lent season people usually only give up something instead of fasting. During the Lent season people usually also pray and cry out to God. So this season is a season of fasting, repentance and of prayer and worship. So this season I want to leave you with a challenge …..
This season I want you all to give up one thing for two months. Instead of doing or eating what ever you gave up; when you want to do that, or have that craving I want you to instead turn on Christian music and worship God and cry out to him until that craving goes away. Well it is almost time for me to do my devotional and worship time so I just want to leave you with this one verse:
John 11:35- “Jesus Wept”
Until next time I hope God will heal you all and will continue to bless you and your family and I am always praying for you even if I don’t know who you are.
