Ash Wednesday

JMJ

Blessed Ash Wednesday!

Readings:
Joel 2: 12-18 (God is merciful when we repent)
Psalm 51:3-17 “Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned”
2 Corinthians 5:20-6:2 (We beg you: be reconciled to God!)
+Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18 (Our prayer, fasting and almsgiving are to be done
in a spirit of conversion, not for show)

I’m surrounded by the ruins
of a life
lived on my terms.

The time has come.

God calls us out
together
to dig out
from all the rubble,
to rebuild
our lives
with Him
courageously,

not settling
for looking good

but digging deep
to lay foundations
that will stand
the storms of time.

What rubble is God asking me to clear away from my life?
What depths of my soul is He asking me to plumb in rebuilding with Him?
