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

“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.

I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭63:1-5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Today’s Gift is Nourishing

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

One grace for the journey

Can be found in what we’re looking for

Like a childhood game of I-Spy—

Looking for the things that are…

Life-Giving.

Abundance.

Nourishing to the Soul.

Lent is a time to put aside our fleshly go-to: favorite foods, the apps on our phone, tv-binges, shopping habits, words spoken, time spent any number of ways.

Trading it in for Nourishment—

Right here, right now.

Present with the Savior.

Present with those in our lives.

Present even through times of pain.

Present to the beauty in our lives.

We bring it all to the table, and we find Nourishing each day in unexpected ways.
