Lent Reflection: February 19th

"Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning."  Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.  Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing-- grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God." --Joel 2: 12-14

One of the greatest gifts the Lord gives to us is his patience. Slowly walking with us, gently guiding us, and tenderly caring for us in our every need. He meets us more than half way. How far are you willing to come to him this Lent?
