My Vision of Your Sadness-Lent 37, 2020

My Vision of Palm Sunday- Lent 2020

Meditation Focus: Triumphal Entry to Triumphal Suffering Rather than leave today’s Lent 2020 Sabbath rest as silent meditation, I beg your indulgence. It’s important to gain that 2020 clarity of seeing things correctly and from God’s perspective, to let Him “Be Thou my Vision.” The Triumphal Entry (as Palm Sunday is often called) was Triumphal […]

My Vision of the Messiah- Lent 34, 2020

Prayer Focus: Seeing You as the Messiah I need, not the Messiah I think I want Lord Jesus, forgive me for all my wrong understandings of You as the Messiah. For all the ways I’ve placed expectations upon You than I have no right to expect with my incredibly limited knowledge. I know that You […]
