Fasting For Lent

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NIV‬‬

““Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.””
‭‭Joel‬ ‭2:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

When we start on a journey, it is always a good thing to have plans. The most important item is to know where we are going or our destination and purpose. The second one is to prepare our hearts and minds. Our journey is a closer relationship with God through Lent. Our purpose is to understand the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the importance of this miracle.

I have been listening to a podcast Bible in a year, and this is my second time doing this. One thing I have learned is that finding time to be with God gets easier as I commit myself to my desire to know God and to love Him and seek His Will for me. He is Faithful, Loving, and my constant Companion!

After watching our Ash Wednesday Service on YouTube, I felt the need to say how wonderful it was that Pastor Larry invited our youth to participate in the most sacred communion of our church. Our youth are the future of our church. Without them we will not exist. We need to do everything we can to promote and provide for our youth ministry. I am in constant prayer for our youth and our church. Because of circumstances beyond my control, I have not been present in person. However, I have never stopped loving and praying for our congregation. I love my church and everyone who attends the services or listens and watches the services. Each and every person is absolutely precious and important. Please join me in my prayers and support of Lake Park United Methodist Church! We Love Jesus, and most importantly Jesus Loves Us!
