This is a time of reflection and deep introspection.
One is searching the heart and doing an inspection.
Has my life been worth the pain of Christ’s sacrifice?
Would anyone of us be willing to pay the price
For any child of ours who is rejecting the way?
For without Christ’s precious gift we all would pay.
The wages of sin, we would be sentenced therein.

Lent is a time of prayer and unrelenting focus
Focusing on the example Christ was in Damascus.
Reflecting on His miraculous healings as if you were there.
Amazing restorations of families that showed His care.
If you are intent on giving something up for Lent,
Self righteousness is something you need to circumvent.
Remember some of Christ’s last worlds before he died.

“Forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Nothing you deny yourself in Lent will save you.
Ensure your motives are those simply of remembering.
When you give up favourite things you are not trying
To build up points to buy favour to use when you are dying.
Christ paid the whole price on the cross when He died,
If you apply works He need not have been crucified.
Ephesians 2:8 ~ “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not that of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
Galatians 6:3 ~ “For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”

John 1:29 ~ “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world.”

The Me Inside

Thou se’est the very worst of me.
Thou also se’est the person I want to be.
My life is laid bare before Your eyes.
There is a gap between the walk I take
And the one Thou desires for your child.
I desirest forever to walk in Thy ways.
Not choosing the ways of this world.
I must be ever watchful for the snares,
For Satan sees too my desires to serve,
And he seeks to wrestle and tempt me.
Your Holy Spirit often whispers to me
And makes me aware Satan is around.
The Spirit speaks unease to my soul
And in obedience I back right away
From things that are not aiding my soul.

Your Holy Spirit

Gentle Spirit, you speak to me; you wake me up.
There need not be a gentle wind or babbling brook.
You often worry my mind, leading me to pray.
You’ve even given me names and what to say.

It is your stubborn love that will not leave me alone.
Sometimes in the night sleep from me is thrown.
I’ll lie awake a while and often talk to you.
“Speak to me Lord, what would you have me do?

I take my pen and paper that is lying there.
And write down things you would have me share.
Sometimes you are not specific as to the need.
Yet still I am urged by You to intercede.

It can occur at any time, both night and day.
The need for obedience is essential when I pray.
For I know if I should ignore a leading from You
Your voice will get softer until nothing comes through.

My Saviour, You suffered so, and then were crucified
And You rose again and You thought of us before you left.
You left your Spirit here to guide us in all things.

Our love for You has given us power and afforded us wings.
