So here is a post written last year from the Secret Garden that speaks to my heart today. Perhaps it will speak to you as well as we begin this 40 day journey toward Easter tomorrow. Let's see where the Lord will take each of us during this time, okay? Sounds like a good plan.
Original Post 3/5/2017:
Okay, I have to admit that I've been struggling with this particular post for several days. I started on it Friday, and here it is Sunday, and it is as though God won't let me walk away from this without giving it another hearing. It's one thing for me to struggle with a passage in the Bible because I can't quite figure out what the Lord is trying to say to me...and then wouldn't you know, that is the exact same passage that my husband decided to preach about this morning in our Home Bible Fellowship! I thought, "Okay, Lord. I got the message! You are NOT going to let me ignore this passage any longer. You want me to hear what You have to say...and then do something about it!" I still haven't quite figured that part out yet...but You've got my attention, Lord...so here we go!
So, this is where I was on Friday, sitting in the Secret Garden...and the first thing I wrote down was:
"So Lord, Do You have something to tell me today? Here I am, waiting to hear Your voice..."
And then I turned to the book of Isaiah, chapter 58. I've been thinking a lot about Lent...and fasting, and other ways to observe this season prior to Easter. Isaiah 58 has a lot to say about fasting...and here are some of the highlights that spoke to me...
