Open the Grace {Day Five} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

O Lord, make this Lenten season different from the other ones. Let me find You again. Amen.

Henri Nouwen

In a season when we’re looking for something—maybe the current season is not optimal & we feel there’s more—we are waiting & praying for…

Something.

“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:19‬ NLT

Today’s Gift is the Pathway of Grace.

Open the Grace {Day Five} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

Lent is a gift that I am truly grateful for. It is not something God demands of us, it is something that God gives us through the Church.

Tsh Oxenreider

This is the perfect time to Open the Grace—to fill our lives with the Word of God, invest in our relationship with Jesus, and participate in the Three Pillars of Lent—Fasting, Giving, & Prayer.

So I choose to step onto the pathway of grace.

“The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭32:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

On this pathway is repentance.

On this pathway is forgiveness.

On this pathway is healing.

On this pathway is letting go.

Throughout the season of Lent, I choose the pathway of grace & look forward to see…

Where I will go with the Savior.

“You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭65:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬
