During the 40 days leading up to Easter, called Lent, it is a tradition for some to give up, or sacrifice, a food or an activity (such as giving up chocolate, sweets, coffee, T.V.)
in order to highlight Christ’s sacrifice of His life for us on the cross.
The following beautiful prayer was heard in this pre-Easter season at Next Christian Community Church …...
As we enter this Lenten season, we remember why we celebrate you – the risen Christ.
Help us to give up resentment and become more forgiving.
To give up complaining and be more grateful.
To give up pessimism and become more hopeful; to give up worrying and become more trusting.
To give up anger and become more patient; to give up pettiness and be more noble.
To give up gloom and become more joyful.
To give up doubt and turn to you, God.
In your name…amen.

As we face the day -to -day challenges of life we are told to “trust God” with the uncertainties that worry us. Trust God with the blind corners and with that next step even when it feels there is nowhere to place your foot. It can sound so trite at times when our minds swim with the “what if” possibilities.
