L and L (Listen and Learn)

One Lent, when I was about 8 yrs. old, I decided to give up chocolate cake, just eat chocolate cookies.

Suppressing a smile, my mother’s response was, “That’s a good idea, dear.”

To me Lent was all about testing my will power to earn some points.

So far off base.

Lent is positive!

Lent is a season to allow God to come closer to my head and heart.

Psalm 66 “..choose to listen and learn.”

Distractions always play a part in prayer. My head tells me I’m gaining spiritually every time I try, though I don’t see any effects. It’s like I’m improving in spite of myself.

I’m choosing to consciously trust God, God’s love.

In Lent, I’m choosing extra “stay still” time in God’s presence, to allow/trust God to make the headway He wants.

Psalm 66…”choose to listen and learn.”
