It's Ash Wednesday
A time to reflect, a time to ponder, a time to consider the direction of our lives. Consider the lilies how they neither toil nor labor, but look how beautiful they are. Not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these. What can we achieve by our own worrying? Jesus is right. If it is worry that has us. We can trust Him, his yoke is easy and his burden light. Lent is a time to prepare our hearts to be open to Christ and clear our minds from the clutter that darkens the window to our heart. Lent is a time to set aside the sin that so easily besets us. His yoke is easy and his burden light. We would see Jesus. We would trust him. Lord prepare our hearts. Break the strongholds, cleanse our feet, help us fix our eyes on you. Deliver us from our foolishness and the locust that eats up our time in worthless things. We love you Lord. Your yoke is easy and your burden is light.
