Lord Jesus, wash over me with your morning light, enfold me in your loving embrace, restore me to your place of rest.
God restores us to the perfect image we were created to be.
Every time I breathe, this dusty temple smells the air, whispers the name of God, and remembers where I’ve come from.
This Lenten season, I encourage us to investigate our lives in order to discover ways in which we may be in need of Holy restoration.
May we be so bold as to open our hearts and minds to the ways God is desiring to work in and through us to bring the bright light of Christ to our dark and messy world.
How do you see ways in which God’s love is present in your life?
The Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
May we be able to look beyond the surface of the familiar stories and be drawn in by Jesus, who confuses our expectations.
Jesus is the orchardist who is committed to acting in our lives. Christ is the one who brings salve to our wounds. We are made right by the loving, Creator God.
