A Pause in Lent Week 1
OK so how come it is Lent already, wasnt it just Christmas last week??? Anyway I am joining in again with a Pause in Lent which is hosted by Floss. This year it is suggested that we look at some lines from a William Ward poem Fast From - Feast On.
The two lines which spoke to me this week are:
Fast from problems that overwhelm: Feast on prayer that strengthens
Fast from worry: Feast on divine order.
We get the keys to our new house on Friday this week and work will hopefully start on Monday in the kitchen and the decorating, so these two lines seemed very appropriate for me as I can feel the tension and anxiety levels starting to rise again. I need to remind myself that God is in control, and has been with us throughout this whole time. Prayer really is the answer to problems. If you have never tried praying then I would urge you to try it this Lent season.
Why not pop over to Floss's blog and catch up with some other thoughts for Lent.
